Beef Dip and dessert squares were enjoyed after a welcome from Councillor Kim Maynard during the social celebrating Community Living Month held at the Royal Canadian Legion on Oct. 11.

Members of New Beginnings and their support workers hosted The Club—Penticton and the Community Living Day Program from Keremeos. After lunch all three groups enjoyed more social time, spot dances and prizes during the Harvest Dance with music provided by Ian Elko.

Event organizer and support worker Becky Vermette is pleased with the afternoon, “They are having a great time together.”

The three clubs get together throughout the year and attend each others dances.

October was designated as Community Living Month in British Columbia in 1998. The whole month  was chosen to celebrate Community Living to enable groups to choose what days or weeks would suit their communities best.

Community Living Month is an opportunity to celebrate the gifts, talents and contributions that people with developmental disabilities bring to their communities, as well as a time to acknowledge the individuals and organizations who support them.
