Happy Holidays From ASRAB!

Happy HolidaysThe Board of Directors and staff at Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind (ASRAB) would like to wish you a fun, safe and healthy holiday in these unprecedented times. We recognize the challenges that COVID-19 and the public health mandatory measures pose to all, and are hopeful that we will see an improvement in our situations early in 2021.

The weather is great out there and we want to make note that you are still able to participate in an outdoor activity as long as you maintain the 2m of distance between anyone not in your household.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and volunteers for continued engagement. We also would like to sincerely thank those of you who donated to ASRAB to support the Association and our programming. These financial contributions greatly assist ASRAB in providing the services and activities to our visually impaired members. We especially note that our major annual event – sight night, went virtual this year and was a great success! We thank everyone that supported us by participating or donating to sight night, and we hope to see everyone back on the trail in 2021.

For those of you considering a charitable donation to ASRAB, we gently remind you that the deadline for receipt for donations is December 31, 2020 (to be eligible for the 2020 return). You can make a donation through our website.

And as a reminder, for those of you interested in attending the ASRAB AGM 2021 to be held in May (date to be confirmed): those members intending to be eligible to vote are required to have been members both for the year in review (2020) and the current year (which will be 2021). Click here to fill out your membership for 2020 online. The 2021 Membership will open in early January 2021.

Please check the ASRAB website and your emails for upcoming winter programming when we are able to offer activities again. Feel free to contact us with any program suggestions you may have.

We are hopeful that we will be hosting the 2021 Canadian Goalball Championships in Calgary from April 29 – May 2, 2021. We will keep you posted.

We look forward to working with you in the New Year to make this an active and successful 2021!
