Disabled thank City of Courtenay for networking opportunity

Dear editor,

I and Conner Copeman, attended the annual Courtenay Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the Filberg Centre recently.

Dear editor,

I, along with my friend and colleague, Cumberland councillor Conner Copeman, attended the annual Courtenay Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the Filberg Centre recently.

Coun. Copeman and I attended on behalf of the Comox Valley Accessibility Committee.

We are an active group that meets monthly at the Lewis Centre. Our mandate is broad and includes the following goals: to remove physical and social barriers that impede the full participation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of social life, to inform persons with disabilities of the existence and mission of this committee and to work with them to identify social and physical barriers, and to work with municipal governments and other agencies to better the lot of Comox Valley disabled persons.

Among the types of disabilities, we include people who use mobility devices, are sight-impaired or hearing-impaired. Those are just a few of the areas we cover.

We meet on the second Tuesday of every month at noon in the meeting room at the Lewis Centre. For more information, call 250-338-5371.

Many thanks to the city’s mayor and council for giving us the opportunity to socialize and network with the very active volunteer groups here in the Comox Valley.

The dinner and company was excellent and from the sounds of the buzzing conversations and laughter, a good time was had by all the participants.

Judy Norbury,

Conner Copeman,

Comox Valley
