WAD 100th Anniversary Celebration
The name Winnipeg Association of the Deaf (WAD) came to life on November 24, 1914 and that makes it 100 years in 2014.
1908 - Silent Athletic Club
1913 - Winnipeg Silent Club
1914 - Winnipeg Association of the Deaf
1939 - Winnipeg Community Centre of the Deaf
2000 - Manitoba Deaf Association (Winnipeg Division)
Our question to you is should we have a celebration of the Winnipeg Deaf Community's HISTORY where WAD's function in 1914 was more of a social club? The group affiliated with the Western Association of the Deaf as one of its branches in 1923.
Today, the Winnipeg Association of the Deaf is a division of the Manitoba Deaf Association (Provincial) and holds its Annual General Meeting the first Thursday in March and has a variety of recreational activities during the year.
Deadline to return the survey is THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 2013.
Thanks for your time and cooperation,
Winnipeg Association of the Deaf Board
