The Hannah and Friends organization which aims to improve the quality of life for children and adults with special needs unveiled their latest addition to their community. It was a new activity center.

The public was invited on Saturday afternoon to see the new facility. There were a number of scheduled activities including a ribbon cutting ceremony, musical performances and a 3-3 basketball game.

The basketball game featured three residents from the Hannah and Friends community taking on three local sports anchors. FOX28's Adam Shear was one of the players in the game.

Former Notre Dame Football Coach Charlie Weis was also in attendance for the opening. He and his wife, Maura, are the Founders of Hannah and Friends. They spoke about what the new center means to the people it will serve.

"The whole community will reap the benefits because there's going to be a lot of happy faces. Look, our daughter only says about 75 words, but she has a new one, and it's gym," Charlie Weis said.

"It means the world to me. I fill up with tears all the time when you see them and see them enjoying themselves and having a place that's theirs," Maura Weis said.
