In addition, Centre staff and clients will appear on television- and radio talk shows throughout that week.
Newly appointed SRC Director Shari Smith encourages the community to join in the silver anniversary celebrations.
"We welcome everyone to see just how SRC has positively affected the lives of special-needs individuals within our community," she said. "There will be food, as well as talent and artwork on display, so come expecting to be entertained."

This is achieved through life-skills courses, pre-vocational training, supervised job placements, recreational and fitness activities.Though several of the Centre's 57 AWDs are in full or part-time employment, SRC staffers continue to seek similar opportunities for other clients.
