CORNWALL, Ontario - Adults with special needs will be showcasing their talents at a new event this Sunday.
Pictured are Al 'Bee' (of the Al Bee Damn Band) and Art Levert Jr.
Members of Art Levert Jr.'s Include Program, a service for people with special needs that addresses their social issues with one-on-one and small group care, are taking centre stage to help make the 'Include Me Inn' activity centre a reality.
Catch the blues with Al Bee & the Al Bee Damn Band and check out the astonishing detail of Jean's amazing paper creations at the 'This Ability of Mine - The Arts of Special People' showcase fundraiser on April 13 at the RCAFA Wing 424 (located at 240 Water Street West). The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5.
"We often know of someone who may have been always around us, quietly co-existing, agreeable, and even cute to most people, but if you really take a closer look, you'll see talents just waiting to come out," said Levert.
The Include Program, assisted by a small team of volunteers, is organizing and presenting the one-of-a-kind arts, crafts, and music event, which is sponsored by several local businesses.
