This past weekend the Special Needs Advisory Committee came together to honour businesses, community groups and individuals who have done their part to make Moose Jaw accessible to all.
Although the event was slated to take place Dec. 3, 2012 to coincide with United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities, due to a number of unforeseen events it was postponed to Saturday.
Nonetheless, Colin Rosnes, chairman for the committee, said regardless of the date he is pleased to see the event taking place and recognizing those who deserve the recognition.
“It is always good to recognize businesses and individuals and get it out there and show people what this committee does, get it out there that there are barriers and it doesn’t matter if you do the little things or the big things.
“A hundred little things can add up a lot faster than one great big huge thing because then you have helped create a more barrier free community.”
He said by recognizing those in Moose Jaw who have made this commitment not only helps further the committee’s cause but encourages others to follow suite.
