The 2018 Norm Jary – ARC Industries Tournament was a huge success, thanks to golfers, sponsors and businesses who believe in community and inclusion.

It took a Net Score of -49, but Ian Clark, Cliff Arcand, Ronnie Hansen and Paul Harrison are the 41st Annual Norm Jary – ARC Industries Golf Tournament Champions!

On Monday July 9th, Victoria Park Valley Golf Course hosted one of the oldest benefit golf tournaments in Canada. With a field of 70 golfers, Community Living Guelph Wellington walked away the true champion. Funds raised will support people with developmental disabilities to connect more in their communities and achieve their potential and dreams.

Honourable mentions go to:

–          Longest Drive – Andy Lammer (Men) and Lori Savage (Women)

–          Closest to the Pin – Tom Lammer (Men) and Stephanie McCrone

–          And Guelph’s longest serving Mayor, Norm Jary, for continuing to support community and inclusion

–          A field of sponsors and donors who’s support enriches the lives of people with developmental disabilities.

2017-18 Annual General Meeting

Our 2017-18 Annual General Meeting has been set.

Wednesday June 27, 2018

We’re very excited to share about our upcoming partnership with Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph, that will help improve Community Living Guelph Wellington’s residential services.

The AGM will start promptly at 6:00pm, so please arrive early to get a seat. This year’s AGM will be held in the ARC Cafeteria, located inside the ARC Industries building at 8 Royal Road, Guelph ON.

If you will be attending, we are asking that attendees please voluntarily donate a non-perishable food item to our Grocery Assistance Program.

We hope to see you on June 27.

About the Grocery Assistance Program

Did you know that over 50% of people on social assistance access a food bank on a regular basis? Or that market rent in our area ranges from $650 to over $900/month? Many of our Supported Independent Living members do not live in subsidized housing or get any extra funding for their rent, which creates a financial strain and can leave very little funds left to cover monthly expenses.

With the Grocery Assistance Program aims to respond to the needs of people CLGW supports in SIL, by giving those who are running low, or are out of food, enough to eat until the end of the month.

May is Community Living Month

Shine a Light on Community Living returns on May 4th

As part of Community Living Month in May, Community Living Guelph Wellington will join Community Living organizations across the province, to raise awareness and demonstrate what’s possible when we all come together for people who have a developmental disability and their families.

Across Ontario, flag-raisings, mayor’s breakfasts, and barbecues are already on the books, as is Shine a Light on Community Living – a night when buildings throughout Ontario are lit blue and green and become powerful symbols of inclusion.

The third annual event will take place on Friday, May 4th.

CLGW’s administrative and program buildings will be illuminated in Community Living’s colours.

The CN Tower will once again shine blue and green that evening at sunset. The lighting will be more visible when 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 Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square will be involved in this year’s campaign, as will the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie.

CLGW is also inviting members of the community to wear blue and green on May 4th, to inspire community engagement and inclusion for the people who have a disability.

See the Press Release from Community Living Ontario here: https://communitylivingontario.ca/en/inclusion-possibilities-to-shine-brightly-on-may-4th/

Friends of Community Living are encouraged to participate in the campaign by posting their photos to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #shinealightonCL and #GuelphON
