Mini Newsletter

A Newsletter Addition

A staff member recently suggested to me that the Community Living Greater Sudbury (CLGS) mini-newsletters include a spotlight of one of the people who receives support from CLGS.  I thought this was a fantastic idea and a great way inspire others.

Welcome to our first installment of "The Spotlight"!
This months spotlight goes to a fabulous man who has received supports through CLGS for many years.  He is known and loved by many.  He has made so many amazing strides over the years and has become a very valued member of his home community.

I hope you enjoy this spotlight as much as I do!

The Spotlight

By Melissa Brunet


     Of my 7 years working for Community Living Greater Sudbury my favorite person to be in the community with is Mr. Marc Yuiry.


     When Marc is out in the community people gravitate to towards him. During the fall and winter Marc is part of the Special Olympics Bowling team here in Azilda. It's so much fun to watch him interact with his peers.


     Marc loves to grocery shop on Thursday with his staff. People love him there and he's a great help.


     At the Howard Armstrong in Hanmer Marc walks the track and it's not unusual for people to strike up a conversation with Marc and staff.


     It's nice to see Marc out in the community making friends. We all need to take an example from this great man.


Summer Wishes


     The most fantastic, magical things can happen and it all starts with a wish.
