The board members and volunteers with Pos-Abilities Society of Langley are proving that possibilities are endless when you put your mind to something.

On June 15, Pos-Abilities founder Zosia Ettenberg along with supporters, volunteers and board members held an open house at their new showroom, located at the freeway interchange, at 307-19950 88 Ave.

The showroom houses all the donated equipment the society has, including motorized wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, bath chairs and CT enlargement machines for the visually impaired.

“It’s wonderful.

“We are so excited to have this space which can hold all the equipment and with the divider, we will now hold our board meetings here, too,”  said Ettenberg.

Ettenberg said the need for her charity is growing with each day.

“We are getting phone calls every day from people with mobility challenges who are in need of some type of equipment.

“Our job is to provide much needed equipment so people can get ahead and get around.

“Our other job is to educate people on the possibilities for people with disabilities. We are here to advocate and hopefully improve some people’s quality of life.”

Those in need of a scooter or wheelchair or other equipment can make an appointment to view the items available at the new showroom.

The new showroom was made possible because of the generosity of local organizations and companies, Ettenberg noted.

Country Lumber, Home Depot, Rona and NuFloors provided the flooring and divider and shelves,  and Cloverdale Paints provided the paints. South Langley Church put in the floors and painted the walls.

“We really appreciate the local businesses so much,” she said.

Pos-abilities is a charitable organization and can provide tax receipts.
