NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – Pequenakonck Elementary School students in North Salem are being asked to mark Autism Awareness Day on Friday, April 1, by wearing blue.
The project is the brainchild of local Girl Scout Troop 1147, whose members are completing their Bronze Award requirements.
Their aim is to bring attention to underdiagnosed and misunderstood members of the community.
PQ students can wear anything blue, even socks or pants.
