Recap of Fed Holiday Dinner Grant Celebrations

Interior:

Interior Community Services - Kamloops Local
Interior Community Services - Merritt  
Interior Community Services - Williams Lake
Kelowna Youth in Care Network (The Bridge Youth and Family Services)

 (Whew!  Quite a list!)

There were too many great moments to mention them all, but a few highlights include: a warm and cozy dinner for 13 young people at Axis Family Resources in Quesnel, an evening of Christmas movies, crafts and fried turkey hosted by the Fed Local in Kamloops on December 15, lots of fun games and prizes for youth in Merritt, and a non-traditional holiday celebration at Tacofino by the McCreary Centre Society featuring a Harry Potter movie marathon! 

Thank you to all the groups who put on such fantastic events for young people in your area!
