April 20, 2017
From the President's Corner!
I hope everyone is enjoying some nice Spring weather.
Enclosed within the newsletter, please see a glimpse of how SNG provides support to the special needs community in our back yard, South Florida. Recently, Special Needs Group participated at two local events, the 9th annual Boating & Beach Bash in Boca Raton, the nation’s largest free event for people with special needs, and the Best Day Foundation in Pompano Beach.
As we continue to expand in Delivering an Accessible World, SNG truly appreciates your support.

Newly Renovated: Cunard's Queen Mary 2
Renovated last year at the cost of over $132million dollars, Queen Mary’s named-successor Queen Mary 2 provides transatlantic sailings from New York to Southampton as did Cunard’s original luxury ocean liner and her predecessor Queen Elizabeth. The only ocean liner to sail from Southampton to New York also offers cruise voyages including an annual world cruise. Although surpassed as the longest passenger ship, the 2,600-passenger Queen Mary 2 completed in December of 2003 still remains as the largest ocean liner ever built.
