AGM Creates Plethora of Ideas

On behalf of the StarkLight Recreation Society, I would like to thank everyone who came to the AGM on July 18th to help us to brainstorm, imagine and develop our curriculum, event listing and goals for the coming year.

We had representatives from Northern Lights College, Dawson Creek Farmers’ Market, Faking Sanity, the Child Development Center, Unchaga Hall and local pioneer enthusiasts who came up with an amazing number of exciting ideas for the coming year- as witnessed by the multitude of post it notes on our ideas board.

Check back soon for our SRS events calendar, class list and breakdown of SRS ideas for the coming year, including midnight Astronomy walks and interactive, seasonal food gathering maps?

… Did I mention canning classes and donations to local food banks? *yum!*

In addition, the SRS would like to thank Super 8 Dawson Creek for its conference room and plenty of hot coffee!
