The people who work with adults with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities had a big event Friday.
Region Ten held the event Friday to raise awareness for "National Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities Month."
Each year, March is set aside to educate Americans about the conditions.
"We are very excited about that. I think the Charlottesville City Council has been very responsible to community here in helping deal with developmental disabilities. I think that is a great change from the past when we used be around, and people now know who we are," said Pam Fisher of Region Ten.
Governor Tim Kaine also signed a proclamation honoring Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities month.
