Life Is Good So Take A Picture
Summer is the best time for pictures, whether we take them ourselves or have others take them for us, it's nice to show off that healthy vitamin D glow. You would be amazed at the number of pictures that come flooding through TCE's Facebook account this time of the year. The majority of them are of TCE residents and staff enjoying the outdoors. They can't help showing off their tans - yes we use sunscreen! All that fresh air and bright sun is going to have a positive effect on you though. What do you expect when you are spending your days camping, boating, picnicking and well...enjoying life. I guess that's the secret to looking great. Enjoying life. That and taking lots of selfies! So get out there and enjoy your summer and send your pics to our Facebook account.
Perserverance Pays Off
I'm sure you know this already. Para Transpo services will be made available to individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health in 2017. This decision came after a vote at the transit commission meeting on June 22nd. This is a huge win for our community and one that we are definitely celebrating. What you might not know though is that a group of dedicated leaders have been advocating for this right for over ten years. That's a long time. You might throw in the towel after two, three years or five years of waiting! But not these folks. They didn't give up. And thank goodness they didn't! Their sticktoitness brought us to this very day of celebration. Finally people with developmental disabilties will have access to Para Transpo. To paraphrase Judy Bernstein, Director of Supports and Services, OCAPDD, one of the leaders of this awesome movement, "its time for the wave!"
We're waving with you Judy!
