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.
