Mayor Wayne Redekop has proclaimed May to be Community Living Awareness Month in the Town of Fort Erie.

The month of May annually marks Community Living Month across Ontario. It is a month in which we celebrate the gifts and talents that people with intellectual challenges bring to our communities. It is a time to promote the development of a healthy inclusive community that recognizes and values the abilities of all its members.

On May 1, 2020 Community Living – Fort Erie raised their flag at Town Hall in celebration of Community Living Month.

Unprecedented times made this year’s celebration different from any other.

The May 2020 Flag raising did not bring community members together physically to celebrate due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, social distancing restrictions and stay at home measures.

Although people in our community were unable to stand together as the Community Living Flag was raised they continued to “stand” beside our organization in many other ways through this crisis.
