The Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital foyer was full Monday afternoon (Dec.3).
Co-event planner Clayton Brad, along with mayor Gale Katchur signed a proclamation to declare December 3 as International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) in Fort Saskatchewan.
“This is my fifth year doing this and each year it gets better. The recognition in the community is really nice,” said Brad.
The event featured multiple guest speakers with a main goal of raising awareness and promoting the rights of people with disabilities.
“This event went good. There was a good turn out,” added Brad.
The United Nations officially started recognizing International Day of Disabled Persons annually in 1992.
