CCPL to host Family Fun Day at Bell-E-Acres

The Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy are shooting for a hole-in-one on Aug. 11.

The Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy are shooting for a hole-in-one on Aug. 11 when they host the first ever CCPL Family Fun Day at Bell-E-Acres.

Bruce Mack, president of the CCPL, said the idea is to get as many parents and children out as possible to take advantage of the day. He added all of Bell-E-Acres will be open to the public for a ‘by donation’ fee.

“We’re going to have a lot of stuff for the little kids,” Mack said. “The golf course, the mini golf — everything will be open.”

On top of the golfing Mack said there will be putting and chipping contests, a story tent, crafts, face painting, bingo and other activities.

“We’ve got some really big prizes, too,” Mack said, and added Heartland Toyota, Bell-E-Acres and Spectra Power Sports have donated prizes to the event. “There will be a couple of hole-in-one prizes. There’s a $10,000 hole-in-one prize and another big prize to be determined from Spectra. There will be lots of prizes for everybody.”

Mack said he hopes everyone can come out and enjoy the event and added all of the money raised through donations and a barbecue will go toward CCPL programs.

In past years the CCPL has hosted an annual golf tournament at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club called the Literacy Scramble, but this year he said they wanted to do something different.

“The Literacy Scramble was a huge commitment,” Mack said. “We thought this year it’ll reach a different audience and get some new families out. The idea is to reach the people who don’t get out and often don’t have a chance to take advantage of activities for the kids and get the parents and kids having fun together. Anybody can afford it, anybody can come out and have a good time.”

The CCPL’S Family Fun Day goes from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Bell-E-Acres.
