Happy SNOVEMBER! Welcome winter! Living here for 37 years has taught me that the best way to survive winter is to keep active and stay involved. As we transition into winter, I hope you continue to attend these amazing programs. If you have questions or need help finding programs and activities in your neighbourhood, please call Jaimelia @ 250.794.7336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I found it inspirational and motivating.
“They (children) are inventing and reinventing themselves as thinking people, before the world tells them what to think.”
