Community Living Kirkland Lake held its 67th Annual General Meeting on September 11, 2014. With a Redneck theme, the costumes were hilarious and the atmosphere was nothing short of outstanding. The board of directors for the upcoming year were announced, staff members were recognized for their years of dedication and volunteers were honoured for their countless hours of service with the agency.
Volunteers at Community Living Kirkland Lake accept awards for their hours of dedication over the past year.
It was with great honour that CLKL presented Lynne Marwick (DDS) with the Community Partner Award, Sherry Pothier the Volunteer of the Year Award and Ron Arbuckle the Peoples Choice Award. Unfortunately, Joel McCartney (CTRC) could not be there to accept his Community Partner Award. All of them have been essential in the success and continued growth of the people we support at Community Living Kirkland Lake.
Community Living Kirkland Lake is dedicated to promote social inclusion by providing meaningful supports, services and advocacy for individuals who have an intellectual disability and their families.
The Kirkland Golden Bears are pleased to announce their official roster for the 2014/2015 season:
The Kirkland Lake Golden Bears basketball program continues to grow and we are excited that we have three new players for this season. While the team is built to play basketball, the players themselves continue to show what true teamwork, respect, compassion and sportsmanship is all about. After competing in their first tournament last year in Sudbury, the Golden Bears are excited to play more games in the upcoming year and return to the Sudbury Tournament where they won the bronze last year. In addition to the tournament, the Golden Bears are looking at games against the KL Swampdonkeys, the KL OPP and other Special Olympics basketball teams in the area. Please come out and cheer on your Kirkland Lake Golden Bears.
We would like to thank St. Jerome School for opening up their gym to us for practices last year. Due to the size of the team, we have moved our practices to Sacred Heart school this year. We appreciate all our community partners and the support we have received and continue to receive from everyone in Kirkland Lake.
