The North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Centre is the only off reserve Centre for Aboriginal peoples in the North Thompson Valley and has been serving the community since 2009, becoming a registered nonprofit society in March of 2013.  The Centre receives no core funding and is run entirely by donations and volunteer staff five days a week.  Our Centre provides:

• Serves as a drop-in center for local community members and visitors.

• Hosts an area for a museum with the history of Aboriginal and Metis people.

• Provides a gift shop featuring many local artists.

• Teaches Aboriginal culture to all ages through storytelling and making traditional crafts.

• Volunteers at other community events from Barriere to Blue River.

• Works closely with Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6.

The dinner takes place on Friday, October 3, 2014, at the Blackpool Hall, W Old North Thompson Highway, Clearwater.  Meet and greet at 5 p.m., dinner served at 6 p.m., presentations at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25 per person and dinner will be catered by K&A Gateway Grill.

Our goal is to continue serving the community and the funds received will support this goal.  To purchase tickets or ask questions please contact the Aboriginal Centre at 250-674-3703, Sam Saul 250-571-2509 Cheryl Thomas 250 674-3260, Cindy Wilgosh 250-674-2939 or email me at cindy.wilgosh@gmail.com.
