Local response ‘very encouraging’

Canadian Council of the Blind’s theme for this year’s conference is ‘ability versus disability’

The Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB) B.C.-Yukon Division is hosting their 2013 provincial conference at the Beach Club Resort in Parksville April 26 and 27.

The overall theme of the high profile conference will be “ability versus disability” and they will work on the organization’s provincial governance and initiatives.

“A conference of this caliber requires careful planning and strong community support and the response from locals thus far has been very encouraging,” said 2013 conference chair Marion Dusang in a news release.

They are looking for contributions of door prizes, silent auction items and items for delegate bags. Anyone interested in donating or getting involved can contact Dusang at 250-248-4887.

 

Blind Newfoundland country/folk singer songwriter and motivational speaker Terry Kelly will speak at the conference and perform at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre Friday night. Ticket details are yet to come but check www.terrykelly.ca for more on Kelly.
