Hi Everyone,

Running low on recreation activities and funds? Check out www.calgary.ca/free for some ideas around town.

Last week CASS staff sent in a link to Accessible YYC’s open google map, which helps you identify businesses that are wheelchair accessible around town. Use the map to find places to go, or help build the map by adding your own accessibility pins to it! Here is the link: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1o_6qYSXjQ0ODEuwrv4ZrC6hDAs_4IwnN&ll=51.10787163525247%2C-114.14174937916869&z=11 If you see anything that you think would be useful or interesting for the CASS community, please feel free to send it my way so it can get out to everyone!
