Event celebrates Community Living Month

The Kindale Developmental Association has teamed up with Monashee’s Bar and Grill

An event with fun, food, friends and music helps celebrate Community Living Month in the North Okanagan.

The Kindale Developmental Association has teamed up with Monashee’s Bar and Grill in downtown Vernon to host a one-of-a-kind adults-only dance party for those with diverse abilities.

The event will be Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.

“Kindale is excited to be partnering with Community Living B.C. and Monashee’s to organize this new event,” said B Elliott, Kindale’s executive director.

Monashee’s was only too pleased to offer its facility, staff and music so ticketed guests can have a night on the town.

“Fun, food, supporting community…sign me up,” said Monashee’s owner Steve Pauls.

Tickets are $2 and include appies, non-stop pop, a swag bag and door prizes.

Music will be provided by Monashee’s popular DJ H2O.

All guests need to get their tickets in advance as none will be sold at the door.

Call 250-546-3005 for tickets.

Community Living Month was built from an idea that launched a community development initiative called Community Living Day in Victoria in 1996.

The project encouraged members of community living associations and their community partners to plan events during October that celebrate the gifts and talents that people with developmental disabilities bring to their communities.

The project generated great enthusiasm and the idea began to expand.
