A Very Merry Christmas Party was enjoyed by over 200 members at the Fogolar Furlan Club Sunday, November 25th.  Santa’s Helpers, adorned with ‘Reindeer Antlers’ greeted everyone at the door to help check in.

Our two crafts, by Cassandra and Renee, were to create a painted ornament and to add bling to popsicle sticks shaped into a snowflake to hang on our tree at home. They were a BIG hit.

The next popular happening was the lively dancing music and coloured disco lights,  organized by Jody Lowrie and her team of student volunteers who gathered all the dancers to the dance floor for a fun time and great dancing moves.

We even had a surprise visit by a mystery Magician who levitated a table, then magically suspended a girls body and finally did rope and card tricks for amazed onlookers.

We are grateful to the Fogolar Furlan Club for their wonderful service and delicious food.

And then, it was Santa’s turn to delight the children with his presence as he carefully called and handed out presents to all.  And then he was gone…

Thank you for sharing Christmas 2018 together.  We have more memories to cherish now!

The Photoshoot has been cancelled.

Hi Families,

UAD has been offered a wonderful opportunity to partner with Nikki Vos this summer, for photoshoots and more.

She is a first year photography student at Lambton College. She currently runs a small hobby photography business that focuses on providing affordable, quality photos to all families and individuals.

This summer, Nikki is hoping to work on a two part personal photography story project, The T-21 Project, ‘21. She wrote, “As someone who has been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome, the goal of the project is to highlight and share the stories of Ontario families who have also been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome. This project will provide families with an affordable way to represent their individuality and uniqueness.”

From Nikki:
“The first part of the project will include family or individual mini photoshoots, as well as a questionnaire form prior to the shoot. Part of the proceeds from the photoshoot will be donated back to your association. The second part will include putting together a photo story book that shares a variety of stories and photos from the families who have participated in the photoshoots. Families will be given the option to have their stories included, if desired, and UAD the WEDSA will be given the opportunity to use the books as a fundraiser.”

“I absolutely love Jackson Park, and think it would be perfect for this project! I’ve created an advertisement poster with the link for participant signup:


If you have any questions, please contact me.”

Thank you,
