2009 Metro Area Brokerage Resource Fair and BBQ

P1000434

Inclusion collaborated with several of the metro-area brokerages to host our annual Resource Fair and Customer BBQ.  We had a great turnout of about 400 people including customers, providers and family members!

Here’s a short clip of the resource fair’s incredible turnout:

Resources within the community came to share information about their services, provide demonstrations and join in the fun.  We raffled off 5 beautiful gift baskets filled mostly with donations from The Arc of Multnomah-Clackamas, P1000442Good Shepherd Communities, PCC Culinary Assistant Program, Ride Wise, On The Move, Trips Inc, Eastco, Autism Society of Oregon, Happy Trails Riding Center, and Special Olympics Oregon.  See below for a list of the community resources that joined us and made this event such a success!

Meanwhile, across the street at Overlook Park everyone enjoyed a meal together, kickball, horseshoes and our CCI-sponsored bean bag toss game.

Here’s a video from the BBQ, featuring some dancing and fun:

Can’t wait to see everyone next year!
