  • Dec. 8, 2016 8:00 p.m.

The South Cariboo Community Planning Council (SCCPC) presents its annual Christmas Round Table Meeting to everyone interested in hearing more about the economic outlook of the community and being part of some strong solutions.

It will be held at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260-100 Mile House on Dec. 15 from noon to 2 p.m. A light lunch, coffee and tea will be provided free of charge.

SCCPC executive co-ordinator Marna Forsyth says people should be sure to mark the meeting on their calendars, and register ahead to attend.

“Don’t forget this is a great place to find out what is happening in your community, be part of the solution, do some important networking and share your important information.”

Special guest Krystin St. Jean will be giving a presentation on the economic future in the South Cariboo, Forsyth explains.

St. Jean will be speaking about the Cariboo Strong economic development program, a joint initiative of all the local governments within the Cariboo and the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC).

It was formed through a partnership of the Cariboo Regional District, District of 100 Mile House, City of Williams Lake, City of Quesnel, District of Wells, Village of Clinton and the UNBC Community Development Institute.

The Cariboo Strong outline document explains it was formed to take actions to address the significant economic challenges to the region’s economy face by all its communities, aboriginal and non-aboriginal alike.

Forsyth adds folks are also welcome to bring pamphlets and flyers to distribute to interested parties at the meeting.

Register for the event by e-mailing or calling 250-395-5514.
