No one should feel left out of their own community. Community Living Day honours this belief by providing a venue for all individuals, regardless of age, income, or ability to come together.
Held the last Saturday in September, the Langley iteration of the provincial initiative will be held in Douglas Park from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. With October being Community Living Month in B.C., Saturday is the perfect day to kick things off.
Inclusion is the theme for Langley's Community Living Day with the local name for the event being "Celebrate Inclusion - together, WE CAN."
The event allows participants and visitors to reflect on the many things those with developmental disabilities bring to the community.
Approximately 350 citizens and 70 volunteers are expected to take part through informative displays, sports, and activities.
Organizers have planned events that everyone can participate in.
It will be a time for laughing, joking around, and getting to know each other.
Everyone in and around Langley is invited to take part.
The event also showcases the many service organizations in the area through their volunteers, information, and involvement.
