ADA Day Set For July 26 At McDade Park

The Lackawanna County Commissioners finalize plans with social service and County Parks & Recreation officials for the July 26 ADA Day celebration at McDade Park from 10 AM to 11 AM. A variety of proclamation presentations and general remarks will mark the celebration. The landmark legislation was signed into law on July 26, 1990, creating sweeping changes in employment, public transportation, public accommodations, commercial facilities and major life activities.
