February has been proclaimed Child Development Centre Month in Fort St. John.
Throughout the month, several local businesses will be hosting different events to help raise money for the CDC’s Build-a-Fort project.
One participating business is the North Peace Savings and Credit Union. The Credit Union will hold a bake sale Friday and the next two Friday’s will be Popcorn Fridays.
The Great Canadian Oil Change and Car Wash will also be participating by donating $1 from every car wash, $3 from every oil change and $5 from every transmission flush done on Feb. 25.
Then, on Mar. 3 will be the 7th annual ArcTech Welding and Machining’s “Day for the Kids”. From 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., Moose FM will be broadcasting live on location from Pricesmart. There will be multiple guests raising awareness about the programs and services provided by the CDC and residents will be able to make donations to the Centre at that time.
Furthermore, the 37th annual CDC Talent Show will take place on Mar. 4 at the North Peace Cultural Centre. The show begins at 6 p.m. and performers are still encouraged to sign up. Anyone interested in participating must sign up before Feb. 25.
