The North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (NTVIC) have applied for a Pepsi Refresh Grant to build a Splash Park in Fadear Park. This grant is a great opportunity to improve our community and will rely on the participation of the members of the community by way of voting online.
Project information won’t be on the site until Jan. 4, 2011, when voting begins. There are new ideas every two months, but you can read how the program works.
For more information on the Pepsi Refresh Grant go to www.refresheverything.ca; search keyword “Barriere”. There is also information of this project on a Facebook page; just go to www.facebook.com and type ‘help’ in the search bar and it will come up.
NTVIC has put together 2011 Community Organization Calendars to sell to the community for $10 each. They are filled with community meetings and event dates for the coming year. Please support this fundraiser by purchasing a calendar available at NTVIC, the District Office, the Star/Journal Office and Interior Saving Insurance. Calendars will also be sold at AG Foods on Dec. 15, 16 and 17.
If your group did not get your information to us this year contact the Centre in January and we will get you on the list for next years calendar. Thanks to our sponsors and to the organizations that submitted their information.
NTVIC has now joined the HBC Community Rewards Program and has ID#3678552.
NTVIC will be closed over the Christmas holidays from Dec.17 until Jan. 4, 2011. If you have a regular meeting that would normally take place during that time please contact the Centre before 3 p.m. on Dec. 15 and we will make arrangements with you.
The NTVIC board, staff and After School Program staff would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011.
