Hey all:

We had our first open house celebrating Community Living Month in Kelowna yesterday, thanks to Joanne and Jeanette for setting out goodies and getting us ready. Vern talked a little bit about the Mandt system with everyone and Vivienne (pictured) did a great job with laying out what our health and safety program looks like at Community Connections. A great time was had by all and we are doing this again in Castlegar, Nelson, Creston and Cranbrook;, come out and join us, we’d love to see you there!
