Support Volunteer Centre

A letter from North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre

To the editor;

What a long way we have come.

When the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre was formed in 2003 they had a vision of bringing our community organization closer together.

In 2008 we had the opportunity to move our office to the Barriere ‘Ridge’. We moved with the goal of helping to make the facility into a community centre.

We are very proud to have reached this goal.

Our 29 member organizations offer the community regular sessions of everything from yoga, keep fit classes, walking program, art classes, youth sports, and fiber arts. Many local organizations hold their regular meetings in our facilities. We also continue to provide the community with an after school program.

I am pleased to have been part of what has been a new and exciting project, but my time to step down and let others come forward with new and innovative ideas has come.  NTVIC’s annual general meeting will be held at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Ridge, and we are looking for new fresh faces. I encourage local organizations to send representatives to our AGM to make sure their interests will be included.

We need new members who will actively participate, so all the community’s needs will be addressed.

We are very fortunate to have the support of the municipality, and enjoy working closely with them.  We are still working to access grants and other funding to operate the office, but we need to find other sources of income to be able to continue to keep our office open

Again we invite anyone to our AGM   at 7 p.m., Oct. 23.

Donna Kibble,

President NTVIC
