Along with Community Inclusion Month, October can sometimes mean cooler weather and shorter days, along with Thanksgiving turkey comas and staying in curled up by a cozy fire…
Not this year!
Our Pumpkin Patch-ers headed out last weekend for a day enjoying the McMillan Farms pumpkin patch, corn maze, pumpkin smash, and a hay ride. While out and about, they were able to enjoy a balmy day of sunshine with an extra helping of fresh air.
We can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the very best part of inclusion – connecting with each other! Thanks to everyone who joined us, it was a great afternoon.
We’re so glad that Joanne, our fantastic Management Support Team Assistant, joined us out and about on the Farm for the sunshine and fun!
Super big thanks to our Home Share Coordinators (Brenda, Karen, and Thea) for their hard work organizing this event – and especially for the delicious snacks, warm beverages, and spook-tacular “go” bags! And an extra big “thank you” to Thea for sending along her great photos to share.
Missed heading out to McMillan Farms with us last weekend? Not to worry! There’s still plenty of time to check it out between now and Halloween…things will just get spookier towards the end of Community Inclusion Month! Check their upcoming events out on their website.
Most of us have dreams about what we want to be when we grow up. This is a piece of Great News! about someone we know who is making their dream a reality!
You can check out two feature articles (see below) that were recently published by Castanet and Okanagan Edge about George Michail, who is a local Community Living BC employee who works with adults who have developmental disabilities.
In addition to his work supporting people with disabilities, George is also the author of Fire Engine Red.
Fire Engine Red is a comic book series about a female firefighter – and wow! does this story ever sound neat! George says the story is “inspired by 80s and 90s action movies” (think Die Hard) but that it’s also “more than just mindless action.”
