Thursday building dedication celebrates life of advocate for people with disabilities

Boise - The Idaho StatesmanJuly 17, 2014 

LINC, a local organization that "connects people to independence," works with men and women with disabilities.

LINC will dedicate its building Thursday to Jeffrey Garro, a local man who worked to help others in the community.

Garro, a rodeo rider, lost the use of his arms and legs in an accident in which he was thrown from a horse and broke his neck. Despite that, he remained active, including holding down a job, until his death in 2013 at age 45. 

The dedication also marks the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Festivities are from 4 to 7 p.m. at the LINC offices, 1878 W. Overland Road in Boise.

Food, music, performances by the Oinkari Basque Dancers, and more will mark the occasion.

For more information contact James at LINC Boise at 336-3335 ext. 13 or jturner@lincidaho.org.
