NOT-FOR-PROFIT disability services provider Rocky Bay will celebrate its 80th anniversary with a gala function and historic exhibition on Thursday. Rocky Bay was established in 1938 to help children living with the effects of polio and now offers services and support to more than 3000 people of all ages living with disabilities and their families. There are offices and community hubs from Joondalup to Mandurah. Chief executive Michael Tait said Rocky Bay continued to be an important member of the WA community. “Our purpose for many years has been to optimise the quality of life for people living with disability, which is no less important today than it was in 1938. Rocky Bay wouldn’t be where it is without our loyal customers, staff, volunteers, board, partners and supporters,” Mr Tait said. The 80th anniversary exhibition and open day will be held on Friday, October 5, in Rocky Bay’s Gym at 60 McCabe Street, Mosman Park, from 8.30am-5pm.
