On Saturday, September 27 from 10am – 2pm, we’re inviting the whole community to celebrate the value of people with developmental disabilities and autism in an inclusive environment. Admission is free for the St.Amant Free The Spirit Festival presented by National Bank and after the fundraising walk, the Buhler Gardens will be set up with food, games, prizes, music and a petting zoo – activities for the whole family.
Why are we raising funds?
The St.Amant Spirit Cottage opens in fall 2014. The new retreat includes a spacious great room for activities and shared meals and three large accessible bedrooms to accommodate longer stays. The Spirit Cottage was built with many accessibility and safety features; an in-ground lift to support individuals in and out of the pool, paved pathways, outdoor seating and beautiful decking with gentle ramps. Your support of this project ensures that even the most vulnerable individuals we support will be able to enjoy a quiet retreat.
