Elder College needs volunteers

Seniors wanted – ages 50 and older—no experience needed but valuable.

Seniors wanted – ages 50 and older—no experience needed but valuable.

That’s the message the Cariboo Chilcotin Elder College would like to get out to the public.

As the executive board of Elder College discussed at their last meeting, while members are active in running and taking courses, attendance at AGMs tends to be a little low.

The board would like to have more input from members and potential members regarding courses, suggestions for instructors and perhaps a few helping hands for registration days.

The winter courses drew more registrants this year than last year, but there is always room for more.

Elder College classes take place during the daytime to encourage seniors who may not have the desire to go out at night and cover a wide range of interests.

Readers can expect some new offerings developing as a result of a membership course offerings survey.

The 2013 Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Seniors Activity Centre.

It should be entertaining and informative, and refreshments will be served.

Contact person is Barry Sale at 250-296-3315.
