Wearing blue and green celebrates Community Living Month

 

Roxanne Bird, director, human resources and Linda Conley, vice-chair, board of directors, Community Living Prince Edward invite everybody to wear blue and green Wednesday, May 22 in support of  Community Living month.

Blue skies. Green fields. Not only are blue and green the much anticipated colours of spring, they also represent the Community Living movement in Ontario.

This is why on Wednesday, May 22, Community Living Prince Edward invites everyone in the County to wear blue and green an help spread awareness about Community Living Month.

“Our team members, partners, volunteers and, most importantly, the people we support look forward to seeing social media light up with photos of locals wearing blue and green,” said Susan Treverton, executive director, Community Living Prince Edward. “In the spirit of inspiring authentic inclusion, we hope you’ll wear blue and green and tag Community Living Prince Edward’s Facebook account on May 22.”

Authentic inclusion is the theme for this year’s celebrations. All month long, Community Living Prince Edward is sharing content on social media that highlights examples of authentic inclusion here in the County.

In this light, three local businesses recently received awards that celebrate their deep commitment to authentic inclusion. Building Inclusive Communities Champion awards were presented by Ashley Card and Brandy-lee Wilkes of the Youth In Transition team, Hudson Yarrow and other people who work for these businesses.

Brandy-lee notes that “Foodland Picton, Hartleys Tavern and Wander The Resort provide equal opportunities for people as well as room for development within their places of employment. These business leaders have been open to developing creative solutions to make sure people are successful and respected. We celebrate each of these three businesses for fostering positive environments where all people feel accepted, valued and trusted.”

The Community Living Prince Edward team encourages everybody to get involved on Wednesday. Share photos of you, your friends, co-workers, family members and colleagues wearing blue and green and celebrating Community Living Month. Connect with Community Living Prince Edward on Facebook and help spread the word throughout the County and beyond.
