The Columbia Basin Culture Tour returns

Calling all Columbia Basin artists: the tour is back!

Registrations are currently being accepted for artists/venues in the Columbia Basin to participate in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour (CBCT).

The final day for registration is closing in, with the deadline being April 15.

The CBCT is a self guided tour showcasing local arts, culture and heritage offered at no charge to the general public.

Full colour tour directories will be available free of charge to the public as a guide to visit your studio, exhibition, museum, art gallery, cultural center or heritage site throughout the Columbia Basin during this special weekend event.

Nakusp hosts first-ever Seniors’ Fair

The Seniors’ Resource Fair is a new community initiative that will inform and educate older adults living in the Nakusp area about community resources, services and organizations.  A wide variety of organizations will be invited to participate in the event, ranging from local and regional non-profit and government services as well as private business and focus on the health, social and educational needs of seniors and their families.

 

Today, navigating the health and social service systems can be overwhelming.  A Seniors Fair will inform and educate seniors and their family members about key services that promote healthy and active lifestyles, independent living and maybe critical to help them remain in their homes and in their communities.
