Join us Friday, August 20 for the Outdoor Fluorescent Art Exhibit by James Darin Corbiere from 6-9pm on site at CBIS, 6011 Cassino Rd. Darin is an artist, working with pieces of white ash, letting the wood grain inspire his eyes. He uses alcohol ink, markers and pens. The wood grains either store information or they absorb energy from the surroundings. His artwork began in 2015 when he decided to heal from church related trauma. He has created over 200 individual pieces. One of the artwork featured is Dragonfly, shown on the right.

FIRST ANNUAL CBIS YARD SALE
In Canada, June is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
Each year national, provincial, and local associations run campaigns to increase awareness about the prevalence of brain injury; the obstacles that exist for those with brain injury; and the need for more services and support at all stages of recovery.
2021: Shining a Light on Brain Injury
The 2021 joint Brain Injury Awareness Month campaign is focused on raising awareness of brain injury in Canada - in other words, shining a light on this often invisible disability. Brain injury associations across Canada came together to share in this universal message about a condition that affects every individual in a unique, complex way.
Join the campaign by following along on social media. Use the hashtags:
#BrainInjuryAwarenessMonth, #BrainInjuryAcrossCanada, and #SpotlightonBrainInjury
You can also use these images for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
