Barrier Free Committee formed
On Sunday, October 26, 2003, the first meeting of the Clarence-
Rockland Barrier Free Committee (BFC) took place at the Grenon Independent Store
in the "Upstairs" community room which is totally accessible.
This informal meeting was scheduled for persons with disabilities, and persons interested in helping people with
disabilities to meet each other and to discuss how they could advocate for a better quality of life for persons
with disabilities in the Clarence-Rockland area.
The leading force behind the BFC is Rockland resident Rachelle Halpenny who is the Chairperson. The organization has since taken on the title of Barrier
Free for All/Chemin Libre pour Tous.
