Welcome to Fall 2019!

Over the end of Summer we hosted our Annual Family and Friends Summer BBQ. There were fun games and amazing BBQ food shared together. 

We have kicked off the Fall season and Community Living Month by participating in the 10th annual One Day event in Victoria, Community Living Day in the Cowichan Valley and spending time giving thanks with the people closest to us in our lives. We are looking forward to the Halloween and Holiday season coming up!

We are also looking for your feedback! As a stakeholder, your opinion is important to us. Please take a few minutes to complete our annual surveys by November 30th 2019, found at the bottom of the newsletter.
