Kawartha Lakes Accessibility Lunches Celebrate Accessibility Week!

Accessibility Kawartha Lakes Event Inaccessible!

Kawartha Lakes Mums- Kawartha Lakes Accessibility Advisory Committee will celebrate Accessibility Awareness Week, beginning June 4th with lunch seminars about services and financial supports available for older adults and people with disabilities in City of Kawartha Lakes. Ironically, one the Omemee venue chosen for these lunch and learn seminars, is extremely inaccessible. This has been a bug-a-boo of mine for years. There are accessible venues in Omemee, but Community Care insists on running their seniors dinner in an inaccessible location, so many seniors miss out on the Diners Club. I posted a comment to their Facebook page to draw attention to this potential problem, so watch to see if any venue changes will be forth coming. What do you think about scheduling an accessibility Lunch and Learn in an inaccessible venue? Please ad your comments below. Here is the announcement as it stands today:
