CN Tower Lighting

Image of CN TowerCN Tower Lighting

The tallest example of our collective efforts to build inclusive communities will shine brightly across the Greater Toronto Area on the evening of May 11th. The CN Tower will be illuminated in blue and green as part of Community Living Month. The illumination of Canada’s most iconic structure will begin at sunset, however, the lighting won’t become fully visible until the sky darkens sufficiently, approximately 30 minutes later. As it does every night, a standard light show will run for eight minutes at the top of every hour. The lighting will conclude at sunrise.

Shine a Light on Community Living

We are also encouraging member associations to Shine a Light on Community Living on May 11th, by having their buildings illuminated in blue and green and asking partners in their respective communities to do the same. A number of Community Living associations will be participating. When homes, businesses and municipal buildings brightly display the Community Living colours on that evening, there will be a powerful symbol of inclusion shining throughout the province.

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week

 

April 10th to the 16th is National Volunteer Week. On behalf of everyone from Community Living Guelph Wellington, I would like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thank you to all of our hard working volunteers. You are a dedicated group of individuals that do so much, but ask for so little in return. We are very lucky to have all of you.

 

At Community Living Guelph Wellington we are fortunate enough to have over 100 volunteers that give their time and help in many different ways. We have people who work one to one with the people we support; others are on the Board of Directors, or serve on different committees; we have E-Buddies, Friendship group leaders, pet therapy volunteers, ARC Open House volunteers, gardening and horticulture volunteers, Sunset Club volunteers, Christmas music program volunteers, bike riding volunteers, track and field volunteers, and University of Guelph students who help with the Best Buddies program.

 

Community Living Guelph Wellington hosts a number of events throughout the year. The success of our Fashion Show, The Poor Boys Lunch, The Norm Jary golf tournament, and many other important and fun events are largely dependent on the time our volunteers give.

 

While we acknowledge all your hard work during this National Volunteer Week, please know that everything you do, and your continued dedication to CLGW is sincerely appreciated all year round.

 

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~Anne Frank

 

Thank You Volunteers!
