April is Autism Awareness Month. The Autism Center of North Mississippi is asking everyone to "Go Blue" and help them spread the word about autism. Here are some ideas:

- Purchase and wear a #goblueMS t-shirt from the    Autism Center.

- Light your business or sign blue.

- Create a team for the Autism 5K, which will be        held on Saturday, April 27, and raise funds as
  a team to support the center.

- Host a toy drive for the center.

- Host an office supply drive for the center.

- Buy a burger at the Burger Frenzy on April 2nd in    front of City Hall. All proceeds benefit the
  Autism Center.
