SPCA wants to be in better touch with the communities they service

the Kamloops and District Branch of the BCSPCA were invited to have a booth at the Rural Living Expo

Lindsay Curry

The Kamloops SPCA has changed our name!  A name change was long overdue:  we serve more than just the Kamloops area, and the Community Council decided that it was high time that our name reflected that.  So we are now the Kamloops and District Branch of the BCSPCA.  One of our service areas is Barriere, and we are hoping to have more of a presence in the community over the coming year.

As a start, the Kamloops and District Branch of the BCSPCA were invited to have a booth at the Rural Living Expo and Trade Show in Barriere last month.  We had a great time – what a wonderful first year for the event.  I was one of the volunteers that weekend, and I found that everyone I spoke to was very welcoming, which I’m sure is no surprise to residents of the area.

We’d love to attend other events in the community, so if you have an event you’d like to invite us to, please contact me at lindsay.p.curry@gmail.com.  I’m the chair of the Community Council, and we’re looking forward to being more involved in the local community, so let me know if there are opportunities we shouldn’t be missing.

The editor of the Star/Journal has kindly invited us to submit regular articles, so we’re going to be in better touch.  If you have questions or article ideas, please email me at the above address.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
