Four autism-related awareness and fund-raising events are coming-up in Mansfield.

Debbie Melching, Community Outreach and Event Coordinator for the Silver Lining Group, and organizer of the annual Autism Walk-a-Thon, told the Richland County Commissioners about the events Thursday morning.
   
The first is a Cut-a-Thon for autism, this Sunday from 1 to 5 pm at Lex Charm at 304 East Main Street in Lexington.

Autism training for first responders and the public will be held March sixth from 8 to 12 noon and 1 to 5 pm at the Richland County Board of Elections at 1495 West Longview Avenue.

A talent show for people with disabilities is set for April 18th from 6 to 8 pm at the Masonic Temple at 1250 Middle Bellville Road.
