Members of the 2012 Arc Society
This year's appreciation luncheon for Arc Society Members featured an Italian theme--complete with lights, opera, and exceptional cuisine .On May 23, central rooms at The Arc's administration building were transformed to reflect a touch of Italian charm. Arc Society members were treated to lasagna and chicken marsala, and tiramisu and cannoli.
In addition to recognizing members for their generous support, the afternoon's program highlighted the long-time dedication of two families, Pat and Betsey Petit and Craig and Betsy Parker. Both couples have done extraordinary work for the organization particularly in support of The Sarah Petit Fund, which provides recreational resources for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. To generate these resources, the Petits and Parkers have sponsored The Arc's annual Bowling Bash, which recently enjoyed its 13th year of fun, food, and friends.

The Arc Society welcomes members through three avenues each year. Legacy Members have designated The Arc as a beneficiary in their estate plans. Sustaining Members have provided total contributions of $500 or more. Horizon Members have contributed a minimum of $250 to our Endowment Fund.
This year's session of the Maryland General Assembly was both busy and productive for disability advocates. The Arc would like to thank the members of the Prince George's Delegation for their support.
Some of the highlights from the session include:
- $4.9 Million increase to the Autism Waiver to expand the program by 100 additional slots.
- $1.5 Million increase to the Waiting List Equity Fund to support 40 individuals
- $21.3 Million for a 2.46% rate increase for community services
