Award winners to be feted at ceremony
The winners of the city’s Celebrating Accessibility awards are to be announced at a public ceremony at the end of the month.
The ceremony is set for Nov. 30 from 1 to 3 p.m. in Memorial Hall at City Hall.
“This is a public ceremony and we invite residents to join us as we recognize those who make Kingston more accessible for everyone,” Julie Salter-Keane, the city’s community projects manager, said.
The event is to include guest speaker Meenu Sikand from the Rick Hansen Foundation, who is to speak about her life-altering spinal cord injury and her work as an international disability rights advocate.
The accessibility awards include prizes in categories such as education, employment, recreation customer service, built environment, volunteer and youth.
The awards are given to Kingston residents, organizations or businesses that have had a positive impact on accessibility.
Information about the awards can be found on the city’s website.
