S5WAVES is an awesome group of community members who volunteer their time to organize and host American Sign Language community events. We are hosting an Ice Cream Social and would like to make this an annual event, bridging community of signers and non-signers together. Families with Deaf children are small and few in each city and struggle to find others like them so we expand their horizons. The community are unaware of barriers their children go through and this event is perfect to bring awareness and create new friendship. We want to make this event free; provide ice cream and have talented ASL performers from across Ontario to entertain the crowd. Its one of a kind, puts Kingston on the map!
