Cariboo Chilcotin Elder College future in jeopardy

A question of survival is on the agenda for the Cariboo Chilcotin Elder College Annual General meeting this week.

“This year, we need to have a discussion about the survival of our Elder College,” Curriculum Committee Chair Barry Sale said.

In 2013, most of the executive will be completing their terms, and there appears to be very little interest among the membership to step up and take a turn at the various positions, he said.

Some executive members have been on the job for more than five years and want to step down, Sale pointed out. A discussion at the annual general meeting will help determine the future survival of the group.

The meeting will take place Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. at the Seniors’ Activity Centre. Refreshments will be served. Elections are schedule for three directors’ positions, and no one has expressed interest in serving as president.

New executive board members are always welcome.

“Elder College provides a vital and valuable service to the over-50 crowd in Williams Lake,” Sale said.

It offers a wide variety of courses at low cost to its members.

For further information, call Sale at 250-392-3315 or Joanne Wright at 250-398-7624.
