AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

The Marbridge Community will mark its 60th year of existence in 2013 with a variety of on-campus events that will commemorate several decades of its history. For 2013, the community has adopted a “You Don’t Know Until You Go” invitation to families with special needs loved ones, as well as interested organizations and business leaders to visit the campus in southwest Austin.

To reserve a spot at an upcoming JAM Session, contact Suzanne Johnson at 512-282-1144, or visit http://www.marbridge.org and register via email.
