SARBI News

Things are going great here at SARBI. I recently took over the Program Coordinator position when Tammy accepted a full-time job at Sask Abilities. I really enjoy working here and all the wonderful people I get to work with.

Angela Ottenbreit has been with us for the summer, planning fun activiites for everyone to partake in. She has also implemented a mall walking program for a few of our clients. She has done a great job and will be greatly missed by all when she heads back to school in the fall.

The program continues to be overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors to which you are invited to contribute as a member. Please feel free to nominate yourself or another willing individual to sit on the board and be a part of the decision making process. Don't hesitate to call us for more information.

At this time I would like to extend an invitation to our annual BBQ and games on August 21. This will be taking place at the Forestry Farm. It begins around 3:30 and will go until 7:00. We would really like to see all family, friends and volunteers there to enjoy the festivities. Please call us by August 18 to let us know haw many are planning on attending the BBQ. We hope to see you there.

Feel free to stop by our new facility at #5-501 45th Street West or give us a call at 373-3050. We would like to meet and visit with you.
