The Accessibility Advocate - February 2017
February 10, 2017
From the President's Corner!
I hope everyone is in good health and those in North battling the cold weather are staying safe and busy booking warm vacations.
Here at SNG, we are extremely excited as we close in on our 10-Year anniversary on February 14th. It doesn’t seem possible that a decade has passed since SNG was born with a vision to make it possible for anyone to travel, even if they have a disability or special need. We continue to grow and evolve as the accessible travel market grows. As we strive, daily, to fulfill our mission of Delivering an Accessible World, SNG is pleased to be able to help so many enjoy travel.
Along with our upcoming anniversary, we are pleased to be running our annual Transatlantic Promotion through February 28st of this year.
We are truly grateful to all for your support since the inception of
Special Needs Group/Special Needs at Sea!
