From everyone at the SCA, we wish you a happy new year! We hope everyone enjoyed their festive season, is keeping warm and looking forward to another year in the beautiful Shuswap.
Whether you’re still hunkering down, or out there taking advantage of the winter weather, we thought a little community update might be a good thing.
The Sunnybrae Coffeehouse kicked off their year with a successful and enjoyable evening of music at the Sunnybrae Hall, January 14th. A big thanks to the feature act Blind Bay Blues Band, the local sign-ups and of course the wonderful audience for their continued support of local & live music. With some welcomed new arrivals to the area it is bound to be another exciting year for local talent. The coffeehouse will continue to run on the 2nd Saturday of each month for February, March, April and May. Doors open at 630pm and the show starts at 730pm. Entrance is $3 and free to sign-up performers. All are welcome! The Seniors Hall has also been serving chilli and a bun for $6 from 530pm – 730pm for anyone who fancies a bite to eat before the show. Check out our SCA facebook page for upcoming coffeehouses and information. And if you are a big fan of local music, have a look online for the other great coffeehouses taking place in Revelstoke, Silvercreek, Salmon Arm, Carlin and many more!
Our Raise the Roof project is still underway and we have recently made some applications for grants. For any newcomers to the area, please visit our Raise the Roof page for a little more information. In short, after some beautiful renovations to our community hall’s interior, we now look to improve the exterior of this facility by creating a fixed roof over the outdoor patio. In doing so we aim to significantly improve the year-round usability of this space. Stay tuned for another fundraising event, due Saturday 1st April!
Our next General Meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd March. This will be the Annual General Meeting where all are welcome to attend. We will be announcing upcoming events and nominations and votes for SCA board positions will be open to all voting members (new or renewed memberships taken before the day of the AGM). As always membership to the SCA is kindly encouraged and welcomed. This can be done at any time of the year and memberships are $10 for the year. If you are interest in becoming a member of the SCA, please visit our Contact page.
Last but definitely not least, a big congratulations to our friends at the Tappen Co-op who have recently opened their cold beer, wine & liquor section! A great and convenient one-stop shop for gas, groceries, beverages and of course… ice-cream!
That’s all the news we have for now folks. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions you may have, either through our website or facebook page, and of course feel free to share and spread the word of our community to friends & family… we appreciate it!
