It's time now to meet the newest members of our Morning Mug Club -- brought to you by Holland Farms Bakery & Deli. 

April is Autism Awareness Month, but Friday, April 2 is World Autism Day. It's a time to shine the light on the stigma surrounding a growing global health concern. According to the CDC, autism now affects about one in 54 children. 

For the entire month of April, The Kelberman Center is asking for your support in promoting understanding and awareness of autism in our community. 

The 2021 Virtual Walk for Autism is held all month long. Organizers encourage you to include your friends, family members, school groups and businesses to pick any day in April, and any distance to walk, to raise funds for autism programs and services at The Kelberman Center. 

Just visit KelbermanCenter.org and click the Walk for Autism button on their homepage. 

Also during the month of April, local businesses are selling puzzle pieces. Pick them up at the following sites: Body By Design, Engelbert's Jewelers, Exclusive Cutz Barbershop, Gentleman's Corner Barbershop, In Bloom Yoga Studio, MV Wellness, Rocco Gualteri Market, Symeon's Greek Restaurant, The Fitness Mill, Utopia Hair Salon and the Toccolana Club. 

Baked goods, with sales going to support The Kelberman Center, will also be sold during April at the following sites: Rainbow Bagels at the Bagel Grove, Autism Butter Cookies at Holland Farms Bakery & Deli and Kelberman Center Coffee at Utica Coffee.
