On June 1st, 2013, SACL celebrated 50 years of service to our community by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new downtown location at 371 Hudson Avenue NE.
Cake and refreshments were enjoyed by a full-house of community members, staff, board members, persons supported, their families and caregivers.
An unexpected pleasure took place when Maria McCallum stood and introduced herself to the group as the founding member of SACL in 1963. Maria stated how proud she was to be standing here 50 years later, and to see how far we have come in providing services and overcoming obstacles for persons with intellectual disabilities. It was a great honour and a pleasant surprise to have Maria attend and speak at the event.
