From the CCSW Program at Selkirk College in Castlegar:
Join us for an ExtraOrdinary Tea Party on Friday, March 28 in the main pit area from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm. The Selkirk College Classroom and Community Support Worker class from Castlegar is hosting “Your Story: An ExtraOrdinary Tea Party”.
Everyone has a story! And the stories of those who move through the world differently are amazing to hear, to learn from, and to share. This annual event, planned by CCSW students, promotes awareness about living with diverse abilities, and helps to create more inclusive communities. Join us for fun, refreshments, music, simulations, alternative art activities, and surprises for all to enjoy!
For more information feel free to message us on the Classroom & Community Support Workers at Selkirk College Facebook page. Or check out the event on the Selkirk College website at http://selkirk.ca/event/extraordinary-tea-party-ccsw-program .
Or give Jane Green a call at (1).250.365.1252.
Hope to see you there!

From the notice we had passed along from PLAN Okanagan:
Just a reminder that next Thursday, November 28th is PLAN Okanagan’s AGM, followed by the regular Families to Families Group, with a little twist, we will be having an early Christmas social after the AGM.
We believe the greatest collective knowledge in the community is held within families It’s this knowledge, passion, and strength that drives PLAN Okanagan and our Families to Families Group.
Are you interested in joining our team? are you interested in connecting with other families?
If you or someone you know would like to know more about PLAN Okanagan, our Families to Families Group, our workshops, events, and what we have to offer, please join us next Thursday night, November 28th at 6:30 p.m (at the below address*).
