Hi Everyone,

The Christmas light displays are starting up for the season—for a fairly comprehensive list of displays, go to and bask in the early nights as we head into winter.

International Day of People with Disabilities is just around the corner—this years’ event is being held at the New Central Library this year on Monday December 3, from 10:30am-3:30pm. Featuring art, performances, information tables, and more! Come and celebrate! See poster attached for more details. 


Don’t forget that the CASS client holiday party is coming up onDecember 13th, from 5-8 pm, at the Crossroads Community Association (1803 14 Ave NE) Ugly Christmas Sweaters are encouraged, but not necessary, just bring yourself and your holiday spirit! Dinner and dancing will be involved as usual,  and there will be small gift baskets raffled off at the event again this year, so bring a few dollars if you want to take part in the raffle.

Please RSVP by calling the CASS office at (403) 283-0611or emailing by December 1st so that we can make sure that we are planning for the right amount of people.
