CFEC celebrating silver anniversary

CFEC is throwing a party and everyone is invited to show up

The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) is celebrating 25 years of strengthening the quality of personal, family and community life in 100 Mile House and the surrounding communities.

CFEC is throwing a party and everyone is invited to show up at the facility at 486 Birch Ave. on Sept. 27 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Folks are invited to take a tour of the facility; there will be fun activities for children; and, of course, no anniversary celebration would be complete without some cake.

The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre sprouted from an idea about having a counselling centre in the 100 Mile House area, following a brainstorming session by a few caring women 25 years ago.

Over the years, that idea has been nurtured lovingly by those involved and many, many people and their families have been impacted in a positive way.

The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre Society has made a significant contribution and difference in the South Cariboo, and this is why it has continued to grow during the past quarter century.

“The society is proud to be a centre that strengthens the quality of personal, family and community life through counselling, education, support or referral with a vision of enriched families living with vitality,” says CFEC executive director Lisa De Paoli, “and we look forward to our next 25 years of service.”

So, come to the CFEC on Sept. 27 from 3 to 5 p.m. to celebrate the 25th anniversary. There will be the Bouncy Castle and other activities for children, and, of course, cake for everyone. A short ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. and the centre will be open to the public for tours.
