YO!

YO WIKSAS? Not sure if you all have noticed. But the Elder's Program has been at a halt due to their Coordinator having the flue for 8 days. Our office was also closed Monday, May 26, in respect to Josie Walkus. Our deepest condolences to her family & friends. Monday May 19 was Victoria Day, so the offices were closed that day as well. We have not had an Elder's Fun day for a few weeks now. In these cases, we could not help it. May has been a tough month. June will be a fresh start. Mondays- Elder's Fun day 12pm-3pm

Social Development update

The police have been further investigating the break & enter that happened at the beginning of May. I would like to thank all of those that have been willing to help in any way they could to help us catch these guys or girls for that matter. We are only a short ways away from the Canoe journeys stopping here in July. Then in August, we will be heading to Kamloops for the Kamloopa Pow wow! How exciting! That's it for now everyone. Have a safe & happy weekend!

For Special Needs some people are requiring wood stoves, cook stoves, washers, dryers, This would come from the Special Needs Budget, & if you have already used your Special Needs then I will not be able to help you out! The Special Needs Budget is a LIMITED budget! Thank you, Patricia
