At our last AGM, we discussed and approved saving up and funding a bursary for young adults with Down syndrome, who complete their high school career and wish to continue on to post-secondary education or career training.
This is our first initiative for giving back and supporting our island wide community.
We wil be ironing out the details in the coming months and will set up a fund.
Check back regularly for updates and time lines.
We have finished receiving orders for the VIDSS spring plant fundraiser and now we're excited to receive our plants on Friday May 7th.
We anticipate delivery of the plants to our locations in the morning and should have the plants sorted by about mid-day.
If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please don't hesitate to call us. Ph: 250-230-7665.
Our inaugural annual summer gathering will take place on September 11th, 2021. We are still working on a location but it will be central on the island.
Stay tuned for more information. Once a location has been set, we will send out flyers to our members, many of the development centres and post the information online here and on Facebook.
