Disability Awareness Poster Contest Information
Peak Community Services (PCS) and Logansport Savings Bank (LSB) are inviting 3rd grade students in Cass and Pulaski Counties to participate in the Disability Awareness Month Poster Contest. The students are asked to create a poster promoting inclusion, creating public places for all, or treating those with differences with respect. The Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities promotes March as Disability Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “Dream to Dare,” which inspires and encourages all of us to challenge each other to rethink and revitalize our communities.
PCS will provide poster materials or the poster can be submitted on an 11 x 17 sheet of paper. It is due February 25 and can be mailed or dropped off at 1416 Woodlawn Avenue, Monday – Friday, between the hours of 8:30 AM -4 PM. The winners will be announced in March; the grand prize is a Kindle Fire provided by LSB
For additional information, you may call Peak Community Services at 574-753-4104, extension 129.
Client of the Month, January
Bobby Knapp (pictured above with Linda Klinck) was presented with a certificate for January's Client of the Month recently. He will be eligible for 2014's Above and Beyond Award which will be presented next year.
The Client Appreciation Committee is comprised of Pam Aldridge, Connie English, Mike Fincher, Loretta Henry, Linda Klinck, and Jennifer Roush. They have been meeting for several months with the task of letting the clients know they are appreciated. They are the reason Peak Community Services exist.
A Client Appreciation Luncheon is scheduled in March for the Logansport and Winamac agencies. This will be in conjunction with other activities planned for the Indiana's Governor's Council for People with Disabilities' Awareness Month.

Recently, Gary Scagnoli from the Elks visited Peak’s Habilitation staff and presented them with two Kindles for use in their program.
