Fall is the season of change and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel has experienced its fair share of changes over the years.

From humble beginnings in 1978 to adapting our programs to meet the needs of today’s youth – even more changes await the agency at our new location at: 468 B Reid Street (beside Quesnel Bakery).

This year alone we’ve welcomed new executive director, Lorene Pulles, to the agency; we’ve also formed new partnerships and increased children served in our programs.

Throughout the last 40 years, some things have remained the same – strong leadership, dedicated staff and board, and generous volunteers and community support. We would like to thank the following businesses and organizations for their generous support during this transition:

  • The Rotary Club of Quesnel
  • Design Flooring
  • Benjamin Moore
  • Act Fast Moving
  • Quesnel Bakery
  • RONA

In the spirit of change, we are excited to announce our new event: Kate’s BIG Wedding. Watch the hilarious pandemonium of Kate’s wedding unfold right in front of you in this mock wedding/dinner theatre experience.

Kate’s BIG wedding is set for Nov. 10 – there will be lots of laughs and surprises throughout the evening. Please call 250-992-7257 for more information or stop by our new office location to pick-up your tickets today! All funds raised will stay local to support mentoring programming for children in Quesnel.

We also have a new downtown clothing bin location. Donations can be dropped off at the purple bin in the Safeway parking lot (near Husky). Thanks Safeway!
