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.
