Support and spirit for families

Over 300 people packed into Applebee’s in North Windham March 21, to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and raise money for their programs. Through Applebee’s Dining to Donate program, the Maine Down Syndrome Network earned 15 percent from the diners’ tabs.

“We wanted a restaurant that was family friendly and available,” said Maine Down Syndrome Network president Jen Greslick, who was there with her daughter Mary. “Applebee’s has been awesome,” she said. She added they would have done something anyway to mark the date.   

Madilynne Small, 3, celebrated with her family Parker Cook, 11, Cathy Cook, Faith Cook, Grace Morgan, Bob Cook, Missy Morgan and her mom Elizabeth Small and sister Bailey. Madilynne earned the most money at the annual Buddy Walk last September and has earned the spot on all of the Maine Down Syndrome Network publicity items. For more information, visit
