Welcoming All

International Day of Persons with Disabilities is Dec 3rd. This year, as the AIM team is focusing on dementia, we welcome Nicole McDonald who is the Dementia-Friendly Community Program Manager for the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Learn about how we can be a more dementia-friendly community. Enjoy a heartwarming wisdom story. Check out the activities that our children and youth will be doing on this theme. Join us for a question and answer in the dining room after church.
