DARIEN – A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Oct. 15 for a new computer lab for the SEASPAR EAGLES program in Darien. The new computer lab was made possible through a generous donation by the Perma-Seal Community Foundation.
The donation was used to purchase a whiteboard and computers for the specialized program for young adults with disabilities. The computer room has been named the Perma-Seal Computer Lab. The ceremony was attended by Roy Spencer, founder and president of Perma-Seal Basement Systems; Laura Ann Spencer, president, Perma-Seal Community Foundation; Allen Rodriguez, Perma-Seal Community Foundation; Kerry Morgan, Perma-Seal Marketing Manager; Linda Kunze from Downers Grove Downtown Management Corporation; David Olsen, Downers Grove village trustee; Dan Garvy, director, Lisle Park District; and several SEASPAR staff.
The program is a year-round life skills enrichment program designed to assist adults with disabilities, ages 18 through 55, as they transition to life in the community. The original program, held at the Darien Sportsplex, has expanded to a second location at the Brookfield Municipal Building, with a designated third site coming soon. The program celebrated its five year anniversary in September. EAGLES participants attended the ceremony as well, demonstrating how they use the computers and whiteboard on a daily basis.
