Thanks for Creating Smiles

St. Marys Journal Argus

Dear Editor:

Generosity, gratitude and friendship...these words come to mind when thinking of the recent Create A Smile walk.

Over 130 people gathered on Sept. 21 to walk or run our beautiful Grand Trunk Trail. We shared stories, laughter and strengthened our commitment to creating a community where everyone belongs.

This 11th annual event raised over $15,000. This funding will be used to support people living in our communities who do not have government funding for needed support, to enhance accessibility and housing opportunities and to support the advocacy efforts of people with disabilities and their families.

On behalf of Community Living St. Marys and Area, I want to recognize the Rossetti and Muir families for their outstanding contribution to the success of this event. Special appreciation is extended to all participants, our sponsors and volunteers.

“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” (Mother Teresa)

Sincerely,

Marg McLean, Community Living St. Marys and Area
