The Board of Directors and staff at Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind (ASRAB) would like to wish you a fun, safe, active and healthy holiday in these on-going unprecedented times.
We recognize the continued challenges that COVID-19 pose to all, and are hopeful that we will see an improvement early in 2022.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and volunteers for continued engagement from participation in zoom activities to mindfulness and physical activity to our walking club to goalball. We were thrilled to see our members find a way to stay active with us!
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 annual community engagement event – sight night, was a great success and active in three centres, welcoming Red Deer! We thank everyone that supported us by participating or donating to sight night, and we hope to see everyone back on the trail in 2022.
For those of you considering a charitable donation to ASRAB, we gently remind you that the deadline for receipt for donations is December 31, 2021 (to be eligible for the 2021 return). You can make a donation through our website.
And as a reminder, for those of you interested in attending the ASRAB AGM 2022 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 (2021) and the current year (which will be 2022). Click here to fill out your membership for 2021 online. The 2022 Membership will open in early January 2022.
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 anticipating that we will be hosting the 2022 Canadian Goalball Championships in Calgary from April 29 – May 1, 2022. We will keep you posted.
We look forward to working with you in the New Year to make this an active and successful 2022!
