Re: “Prolific historian and pioneer passes,” The Leader, Aug. 22.

The Centre for Child Development of the Lower Mainland (founded by Norm Sherritt in 1953 as the Lower Fraser Cerebral Palsy Association) owes a profound debt to Norm, whose prescience and perseverance now provides more than 2,000 children with developmental disabilities with 30,000 outpatient medical rehabilitation service sessions every year throughout Surrey, Langley, White Rock and Delta.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, children, families and all the staff of The Centre for Child Development, thank you Norm for your enduring and growing gift to all those we serve on your behalf. We will continue to do everything in our ability to honour and cherish your legacy.

 

Gerard Bremault, CEO
