“Wiggle & Shake” defines the program offered by the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) to children up to six years.

Its first outing at Interlakes Hall was Oct. 24, and it will be back Nov. 21 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Provided by the South Cariboo Early Years Travelling Playgroup, it is an opportunity for young families to enjoy games, crafts, story time and healthy snacks, as well as pre- and post-natal support, and a Good Food Box.

At its inaugural outing, half a dozen children and their mothers, led by co-ordinator Erica Henderson, enjoyed all the program has to offer.

For more information, contact the CFEC at 250-395-5155.

Programs cancelled

Bridge Lake Community School Society (BLCS) president Chris Lance has issued the following statement:

“BLCS regrets that after-school programs for students and evening adult programs are cancelled until further notice. School District #27 now requires a custodian to be present at all times for events and activities outside school hours, at a cost of $30 per hour; and minimum callout charges may apply.

“This is in addition to rental charges, and liability insurance. Therefore, our programs are no longer financially viable.”

Questions may be directed to Lance at 250-593-0042, or visit the website for updated information: bridgelakecommunityschool.org.
