This Month's Edition...

We’re Having a Winter Festival
Submitted by Debbie Seymour, Chamber Executive Director
The fun-filled North Shuswap Winter Festival on Family Day Weekend, February 16 and 17 is just two weeks away.
Across the North Shuswap, we will see bed races, curling, chili cook off, snow pitch, snow sculpting, skating, story telling, face painting, dancing and other entertaining activities for all ages.
Many individuals, organizations and businesses have joined with the North Shuswap Chamber to put the festival together. Each has taken on an event. We are so thankful for all the support from the community and looking forward to the weekend!
This amazing group has organized 13 events mostly throughout the North Shuswap. Most activities are all ages with the intent of providing inexpensive fun and festivities for our families and community.
