The Moose Jaw Association for Community Living opened its doors on Oct. 20 for an open house, welcoming the public to stop in for treats and a look at the facility.
Organized to celebrate Community Living Month, the free event featured coffee and snacks to enjoy while mingling and taking part in any of the crafts or games set up for the afternoon
“We're just celebrating the different diversities in the city, so we've set up like a meet and greet, and just to show what we do in this program here,” said Susan Kellock, program manager.
The open house was a great chance to mingle with everyone there, as well as to take a look at the centre and learn a bit more about the services offered there — like the Moxie Group, for autistic kids in the community, or the mentoring program and other groups.
The Association for Community Living hosts this event each year, and always gets a happy crowd out to participate.
“It's really just about inclusion, to make sure that everyone feels welcome,” said Kellock. “Our doors are open, for people to come in to talk. That's what we're here for.”
