2018 Deaf Awareness Week Schedule

Tuesday, September 25 - Biggest Silent Dinner of 'Em All!

DAW is already well underway, but be sure to catch the LARGEST event of the week!

We expect 200 - 300 people to turn out to enjoy socializing in sign language (from very beginning to native signers), as well as all-you-can-eat food buffets! MUCH more than pizza...even gluten-free options, soup and salad bar, etc.

The event actually runs til 7:45, but you should aim to arrive by 6ish, as the dining room staff will want us to clear out between 7:30 - 7:45 so they can clean. You can keep chatting in the game room until 9:00!

Don't want to eat? Get a wristband at the front desk and just come socialize - no cost.

Here's a synopsis of the film, which features sign language: Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong. —JHatta
