Erin Park MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- On a hot, sticky afternoon, seven children played the best game of Duck, duck, goose that they'd ever played together. The after-school group, called Friends at Play, meets from 4 to 5 p.m. Thursdays at Burbank First United Methodist Church and is led by Director Teresa Mackey and her assistant, Lynn Twiest. Though the program was started in January to meet the needs of children diagnosed with developmental disabilities, it also includes children without disabilities.
