KW AccessAbility Activities July 8 to 19

Posted on Monday July 08, 2024

Hi Everyone,

 
We've had to change the Tuesday July 9 event from Games on Tap to Games at KWA office (because Games on Tap is closed on Tuesdays). At the office, the event will run from 1 pm to 3 pm.
 
We had a lot of fun at St Jacobs market, but unfortunately we did not have enough time to enjoy everything they have to offer, so we will visit one more time in August. If you are interested please give us a call for more details.
 
We had great success at our Arts Cafe, we painted some beautiful auction worthy canvases, and enjoyed some delicious cupcakes made by our Talented summer staff (:
 
Please let the office know which events you are planning to attend so that we can plan accordingly! You can either call the office at 519-885-6640,  reply to this email or email summer@kwaccessability.ca
