September was Community Living Month for 2020!
During the month of September we had several events planned to celebrate the abilities of people, bringing awareness to the need for enhanced supports and services within our community.
September 1st- Blue & Green Day- Many members of the CLC-K family joined in to show their support for Community Living and #inclusion!
Thank you to Angel for decorating our Administrative Offices so festively once again this year.
September 1, 2020 – Flag Raising at the Civic Centre
Our Annual Flag Raising ceremony took place in front of the Chatham Kent Civic Centre. However, due to the COVID pandemic, this group as kept small and social distancing was practiced.
Mayor Darrin Canniff launched the event with raising the CLC-K Flag, with Karen Kirkwood-Whyte and Don Shropshire in attendance as well.
At this event, the recipient of the Joyce M. Carr Champion Award was presented by Steve Stokley of JOBWORX – Employment Services to Nathan Humphries and Angel Golden of Sarnia Quality Cleaners
Since our 2020 Volunteer Appreciation had to be cancelled, we also announced Andy Stockdill as the recipient of the Joan Olive Risdon Memorial Award of Distinction.
The recipients of The Rob McLandress Make a Dream Come True Fund, were also announced and awarded with their $1,000 cheques at our 2020 Flag Raising Ceremony. This year’s recipients are Kyle Bunney and Tracy Major.

September 11 – Shine a Light – Once again, we leveraged our collective voice through this campaign to advocate for the full participation, inclusion, and citizenship of all people who have diverse abilities.
Our CLC-K Community Movie Night at the Boonies Drive-In was so much fun!
We were unable to offer our regular FREE community movie night at the Capitol Theatre. So, instead of cancelling, we brought this event outdoors to the Boonies Drive-In Theatre on September 17th, 2020. That night, the movies featured were ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’, followed by ‘Unhinged’. We had over 40 cars in attendance who were all able to enjoy the show in the safely of their vehicles.
