Unplug and Play

Wow..did you see all the children out playing last week? On behalf of the North Okanagan Optimist Club and our partners - the North Okanagan Early Years Council and Health Promoting Schools - we have to thank the entire community for supporting the second annual Unplug & Play Week.

From the children and families playing to our generous sponsors to all the community groups and businesses who opened their doors even wider during the week - a tremendous thank you.

Our children had a chance to see animals at Farmer Val's and Davison Orchards, try a new sport like fencing and curling or to build something out of cardboard boxes at the science centre.

There was a chance for family fun at the Hillview Elementary Barn Dance or JW Inglis' road hockey game, yoga, library and so much more.

A busy week but hopefully just the start to a healthy, active lifestyle.  So kids....it's now up to you!  Make play and physical activity a part of your every day.
