January 11-17

Hey all!!! Hope everyone had a great holiday! I know I definitely did. How about this snow eh? #epic #wowzas! Well with all this snow it only makes sense to take full advantage of it. We will be kicking off winter programs next week so make sure you have your boots strapped up and your toques snuggly over your head. Just a reminder that when you are attending winter activities to ensure you are prepared for the elements. Dress in layers and stay warm!!! If you don’t have sufficient clothing or gear please let us know before the activity so we can ensure to bring you some!!! Let’s have a safe, warm, and most importantly fun winter season!!!

What brave souls they are as a group runs in for the first annual Kelowna Polar Bear Dip!!!10818375_902626139767640_4761288635782124119_oTHANK-YOU!!! All of us at CRIS would like to extend a huge thank-you to all of our volunteers, partners, and supporters at CRIS’s first annual Kelowna Polar Bear Dip. You guys and gals made this event possible and ensured that everyone there was able to have a fun and safe kick off to the new year! We also owe a tremendous amount of thanks to Douglas, Davis, and Sonja who organized the event. They did a tremendous job and we couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. They dedicated an amazing amount of time coming up with the idea, figuring out logistics, finding sponsors, getting involved with media, etc. (it really just goes on and on). We are extremely excited about the future this event has with CRIS and the continued work that we will be able to do with all of our supporters. So…once again thank-you to all of you who went above and beyond to make the inaugural year of this event a success!!!

Volunteers: Just a reminder to all volunteers that if you have any specific days in your schedule that you are able to volunteer please let me know so I can schedule accordingly. If you are interested in Trip Leading activities please let me know as we would love to be able to run more activities than ever!!!
