A Topeka tradition celebrating the birthday of a man known for giving to children continued Monday.
Children from the Kidlink preschool at Easter Seals Capper Foundation were treated to Coldstone Creamery. It honored a tradition started by the organization's founder, Senator Arthur Capper. Capper celebrated his birthday from 1908 to 1951 with a community birthday party that included free ice cream.
The Capper Foundation now works to enhance the independence of people with disabilities, primarily children. The Kidlink program works with children with and without disabilities.
