Nov. 25: Community Briefs

Community briefs: correction of last year's reporting on new pain care group, gift store for young shoppers, and business mentors

Correction: new pain care group

Vanderhoof’s new chronic pain self-managment group meets on the last Tuesday of every month, instead of every Tuesday as reported last week by the Omineca Express.

Rather than Heather Floris, Heather Goretzky, Chronic Disease and Project Manager at the Omineca Medical Clinic, was the staff member who initiated the pain care group along with community services manager Raquel Miles.

 

Gift store for young shoppers: EDS

Miss Oldham’s class from Evelyn Dickson Elementary is hosting a holiday gift shop, with Grade 6 guides for the younger shoppers, on Nov. 24 and 25 for the public from 3 to 6 p.m.

 

Mentors for businesswomen in northern B.C.

The Forum for Women Entrepreneurs (FWE) and Northern Development have partnered to launch the inaugural FWE Mentor Program North, which will provide business mentors to 25 women entrepreneurs from across Northern B.C. Women who are running their own businesses – and are driven to gain valuable insight and business expertise from successful mentors – are eligible to apply now.

The program is open to female entrepreneurs located in B.C.’s Northwest, Northeast, Cariboo Chilcotin and Fraser Fort George regions. The partnership between FWE and Northern Development means mentees will pay $100 for 12 months of one-on-one mentorship beginning January 2016.

More information can be found on fwe.ca/mentor-program-north and deadline to apply is Nov. 30.
