his is part of the group who attended the Big Bunch November outing at the Carib Theatre.

Our West Jet ticket raffle was a big success, raising $6245.  The winners are:

•Terri Campbell – West Jet return tickets for 2 anywhere they fly

•Maureen Bunnah – Garden Cart

•Christein Chase – $100 fuel card

Thank you to all who purchased a ticket and all the volunteers who spent many evening and weekend hours selling tickets.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel (BBBSQ) is excited to announce a new program being piloted at Voyageur elementary school, called Kids In Motion. This is a group mentoring program that focuses on developing children’s social skills, articulation skills and comprehension skills through play and other creative activities. The program is one hour per week for seven weeks.

Topics include: team work, problem solving, friendship and goal setting, positivity, I am unique, dealing with stress and a wrap up celebration. A big thank you to Mrs. Trask and her Kindergarten students for allowing us to try the new program with them.

Dec. 1 is Giving Tuesday. If you feel you are in a position to make a donation to our agency it would be greatly appreciated. Charitable tax receipts can be issued. The December outing has traditionally been everyone enjoying watching a Christmas matinee (popcorn of course has to be included).

In the past, we have also provided all of our families with a bag of Christmas treats.

The cost for this project is approximately $1,500. We are respectfully

asking the Quesnel community if they could help to sponsor this activity.

We would really appreciate your

assistance to make this special day a reality.

Michelle Riley is executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel.
