May is Community Living Month – Join the Celebration!
During the month of May we had several events planned to celebrate the abilities of people and to bring awareness to the need for enhanced supports and services.
May 3 – Community Family Film Night – Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Chatham-Kent Capitol Theater for our FREE movie night. We had over 700 attendees come out to watch “The Greatest Showman”.
May 4 – Shine A Light on Community Living – Community Living Chatham-Kent participated in an Ontario-wide initiative on Friday, May 4th called Shine a Light on Community Living. We changed our building’s exterior lights to blue and green in support of the Community Living movement. Together, we showed that Chatham-Kent can create a powerful example of inclusion that will shine not only in our community, but throughout many others around the province.
May 8 – Flag Raising and Barbecue at the Civic Centre – Join us at our Annual Flag Raising ceremony at the Chatham Kent Civic Centre. The festivities began at 11:00 am and included presentations of the Joyce M. Carr Champion Award and the Rob McLandress Make a Dream Come True grant awards. A charity barbecue was sponsored by OPSEU Local 148.
May 10 – Boston Pizza – A sincere thank you to all who joined us on Thursday May 10 while we celebrate Community Living Month! We were able to raise $600 to put towards Community Living Chatham-Kent initiatives.
