2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. Today I received this picture from the boat yard, where Jim is working with Clip & Will. This boat may be bound in wrap, and drydocked, but the door, like our hearts, is open.

KELCHLIN, Michael

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.” Goethe.

We have lost another compatriot. Please join us Thursday, 01/23/2020 for a Mass of Christian Burial at 10am, at Queen of Heaven Church to honour Michael Kelchlin.

Dear Readers,
There are a great many people, volunteers, and foundations from the Westen New York community, which make Excalibur possible. Participant donations are also quite crucial, and help to offset Excalibur's expenses, particulary fuel. (Our suggested donation is $13.00 per person, for a two hour accessible boating/fishing trip.) When you weigh in on the cost of maintenance, insurance, and fuel (at $500 plus dollars per refuel) it's a miracle this program runs. So the next time you are out on the water with us, please look at your donation as an investment in the Excalbur program. We need to keep our engines running for you!

Kind Regards,
Catherine Catalano
Director of Programming
Excalibur

P.S. If you would like to make your own personal donation, please visit our website at www.excaliburls.com under donations. Thank you!

Thanks to one of our board members, our teens were able to go out fishing with Excalibur Leisure Skills Center, Inc.. We had so much fun and the weather was great!
Participants at one of our day habs all wanted to enjoy the waterfront this summer, some suggesting fishing and others eager for a boat ride. At last, the group was able to come up with the perfect solution—a boat ride with Excalibur Leisure Skills Center, Inc.! Excalibur is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to providing adaptive boating and fishing opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. It provides access to Lake Erie, and offers developmental, therapeutic and recreational opportunities for human service agencies and their related programs. Everyone had a wonderful time, enjoying great weather and even greater company! 🛥️
