A reminder that our AGM will be held next Tuesday, June 25th from 6 to 7pm at the Beban Park Social Center, Room 1. We would like to encourage everyone involved in Special Olympics in our community to attend this meeting and have the opportunity to have their voice heard and receive information from the past year and the year to come!

We are a volunteer driven organization and the more people who can help with the effort to promote sport and provide opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities the better the quality of the experience for all involved!
