Access Awareness Day Returns this Saturday

Sidney, B.C.;  The Town of Sidney and Beacon Community Services are hosting Access Awareness day Saturday, June 6th at the SHOAL Centre. Access Awareness Day is held annually on the first Saturday in June. It is a comprehensive provincial campaign to raise awareness about disability, accessibility, and inclusion.

This year, festivities begin at 10:00 am with a Scooter Rodeo at Sidney All Care. Acting Mayor Cam McLennan will be on hand and will lead the Scooter Parade from Sidney All Care, down Resthaven Drive, onto Beacon Avenue, up Fifth Street and onto James White Boulevard and then back up Resthaven Drive where the parade will end at the SHOAL Centre.  

Participants will be decorating their scooters and a prize will be awarded for the “Best Dressed Scooter”.  

People are encouraged to come out and cheer on the scooter parade participants and to come into the SHOAL Centre, where the parade ends. The Access Awareness Fair will be going on and there will be lots of information, demonstrations, key note speakers who will share their personal stories, door prizes and this year’s Jeannette Hughes Award winner will be announced.  

For more information about the Access Awareness Fair contact Glenys Cavers at Beacon Community Services.
