Celebration all about inclusiveness in Langley

“Together We Can” was the catchphrase for the annual Celebrate Inclusion in the Park event at Douglas Park.

Hosted by the Community Living Day Committee, which is made up of 25 local organizations, Saturday’s festival celebrated inclusiveness in the community.

The event included four door prizes with a value of up to $50 each, live music on the Spirit Square stage, a food tent, and a soccer game involving local firefighters, Special Olympics athletes, and people with developmental disabilities.

“It was good. It’s always fun,” said Shirley Yamashita-Paterson, with the Langley Association for Community Living, one of the sponsors of the celebration. “It is a family event where a lot of organizations and vendors were supporting inclusiveness in the community, and putting out information in regards to the support they offer for families of individuals with developmental disabilities.”

The event promoted Community Inclusion Month in B.C., happening in October.

About 200 visitors took in the celebration.
