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
