Speak out! June 2. From the website www.actionhall.ca : “Join us for a day of celebration, reflection and joy. You are invited to the 19th annual ‘Speak Out Festival’ hosted by the Disability Action Hall. ‘Humanity and Me’ is a celebration of disability rights, pride and culture movement in Alberta at the beautiful Lougheed House.” The event will run from 10 am-3pm.

Is your doctor part of the Mosaic Primary Care Network? If so, you have access to a number of free programs and services, ranging from dieticians, social workers, pain management services, support for getting active, free dental screenings for children between 1-5 years of age, and much more. Please talk to your doctor for more info, and check out some of the programs that would benefit you here: http://mosaicpcn.ca/services/Pages/default.aspx . You can also find a new doctor if you need one through this link.

Alberta is looking for input into the K-12 provincial curriculum. There is a survey up here: https://education.alberta.ca/curriculum-development/take-the-spring-2017-survey/?searchMode=3 . Whether you think that the current curriculum is robust enough or not, everyone’s input is welcome and important in building a stronger future.

The Village Square Leisure Centre’s Summer Adaptive Fitness Guide is out, and attached to this posting.
