“A community project of the North Okanagan Optimist Club in partnership with the North Okanagan Early Childhood Development Coalition is happening April 27 through to May 5, 2013.
Unplug & Play Week’s have become a very successful community effort to encourage children to be more physically active. We want them to be excited about doing physically active activities, and get off the couch and away from the TV and computers and even texting on cell phones.
Every parent in our district is invited to explore the events that will be listed in the 12 page Morning Star newspaper the week prior to April 27th, 2013. Many of the local businesses who offer physically based sports or recreational activities will be holding short 2 – 4 hour events that you can bring your children to. Try horseback riding, or BMX motor sports, or bowling, or skiing, or cycling and much more.
We also invite each and every parent to look seriously at joining the “North Okanagan Optimist Club”. We Chartered in September 2011, and have done so much in such a short period of time. Our focus and aim is to raise money so we can support children and teens in our community in many different way. The membership can be paid monthly at around $10 per month. What a great investment in your own children’s future, and those who are less fortunate.
