Darrell, you have earned your long-awaited retirement and we are overjoyed that you have chosen to finally take the time you rightfully deserve! We are so happy for you!


We appreciate your devotion to RISE, the independent living

movement, and the many years of growing, nurturing, and developing the Centre to what it is today.  We could not have achieved this without you and your insight.  


Thank you for your paramount dedication throughout the years as Executive Director, Direct Funding Program Coordinator, and a member of the Board of Directors. 


As you move on into the next amazing chapter of your life, know that

you will be missed, know that our very best wishes and thoughts go with you, and know that we will never forget your professional expertise, mentorship, and your friendship.


Our best wishes go with you!

(June 2020)

Happy Retirement Darrell Smith!
