NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – For more than 20 years, Community Living Month has been recognized annually across Ontario in May - including in the Municipality of North Grenville.
“North Grenville’s Municipal Council would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness about the invaluable role that Community Living plays in North Grenville,” highlighted Mayor Nancy Peckford.
“The inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is fundamental to a healthy community and we are very proud of the strong relationship that Community Living has with so many of our residents here,” added Mayor Peckford.
“As a widely respected and large employer in our community, Community Living North Grenville continues to be a leader in creating and supporting a more inclusive community, said Councillor Debbie Wilson.
North Grenville’s Municipal Council has declared the month of May Community Living Month, and as such the Flag will be flown at the Municipal Centre. Community Living held a flag raising ceremony after their Pancake Breakfast fundraiser – held for the first time in two years.
“Community Living month has been celebrated across the province for more than twenty years, not only to showcase people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, but to raise awareness and promote the true inclusion of all people, to live, work, and play in their own community,” emphasized Sandra McNamara, Executive Director Community Living North Grenville. “We are excited to be back celebrating CL month with the people and community of North Grenville.”
In support of Community Living Month, Jonsson’s Your Independent Grocer is accepting donations at the cash on behalf of the organization.
