We’ve had some amazing Centennial celebrations in Courtenay so far this year, with more to come in the fall. But there’s another organiza- tion celebrating a milestone this year that has played an important role for countless Comox Valley families. 30 years ago, the Special Needs Recreation Program was created to provide recreation services and supports for individuals with disabili- ties in the Comox Valley. This innovative program began as a partner- ship with the Courtenay Recreational Association, the City of Courte- nay, and the Comox Valley Regional District. The accomplishments of the Special Needs Recreation Program over the years are worth celebrating, from the many adaptive programs for individuals, to the advocacy and work done by the Accessibility Committee. We thank the original advisory committee members who had a dream of community recreation for everyone. Thank you to the dedicated and talented staff and volunteers who work hard so that no one gets left behind. And finally, we thank the many sponsors and supporters in the Comox Valley. By helping ensure everyone in our community has opportunities for quality leisure recreation, this program makes a difference in people’s lives.
