The event will commemorate the one-year anniversary of the passing of Anita Lynne Tebbs, the namesake of the Star Community, which began as the Anita Lynne Home in 1970.

When their third child was born with profound disabilities, Richard and Audrey Tebbs balked at the idea of placing her in an institution as was customary at the time. Instead, they opened a home with a Christian environment that would provide intensive one-on-one training by a staff skilled in teaching mentally retarded children.

In 2003, the home was renamed Star Community Inc., which is at 13757 Broadfording Church Road.
