Our Voice Our Choice – February Meeting

We shared our news, everyone had been very busy.

We talked about the snow.

One member of the group had become an aunt – we saw photos of the new baby.

Another member of the group shared a folder of his Special Olympics photos and certificates – there was a brilliant photo  doing the long jump.
