Hello <<First Name>>,
April marks the one year anniversary since the inception of MERGE, and what a year it has been. Coincidentally, April is also Autism Awareness Month and you'll see in this edition how MERGE is committed to Awareness, Acceptance & Inclusion of persons with Autism (and all diverse abilities!) into recreation, sport and camp opportunities that are offered within our communities. We believe that we strengthen our communities and enhance the potential for all when we commit to inclusive practices and culture.
In the past year I have been blessed to meet and work with countless advocates for inclusion, each connection strengthening and validating our common mission to build communities that truly are "For All". I am energized, hopeful and optimistic about the year (and years) ahead. Thank you for being a part of this inaugural year with me.
