2022 12 23: Merry Christmas, School Ski Hosts needed, Safety Host Info, Helping Seniors


Larch Hills Skiers – Your help is still needed:


Our very popular Ski School program for Elementarty and Middle School children need you.

Classes are booked weekdays beginning January 3 through to end of February and if you can join a class to assist the teachers and parents please reach out.  There are still a few classes not matched with a host. 
Thank you to those folks who have already stepped up to work with the classes.

Share your love of X-C skiing and the Larch Hills experience!
No coaching or instruction is required. 
The requirement is a 90 minute morning fun ski session.

 If this is an unfamiliar concept an on-snow new Ski Hosts orientation can be arranged for Saturday morning, Jan. 7.

Volunteer Opportunity to assist Seniors in Care


Ministry of Health is seeking volunteers for a short-term project in Sacate (OSA) 2022-2023 Long-Term Care Resident and Family Experience Survey. 


About the project: There are over 29,000 individuals living in 294 publicly subsidized care homes in B.C. Every resident will be approached to participate in an in-person interview conducted by trained volunteers. The rich information collected will be an important source of information for our Seniors Advocate to identify system wide issues. 
Community involvement: The resident survey could not be conducted without the support of volunteers in every region of the province. There are nearly 400 residents in Salmon Arm’s 4 facilities?. Many of these residents are lonely and bored, and this survey is a chance for them to have a visitor and engage with one of our volunteers. It also gives volunteers insight on what it’s like inside a long-term care facility. 
Anyone can apply as a volunteer surveyor!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I hope you will support our efforts to ensure that the quality of long-term care in BC is something we can be proud of, and especially that the seniors in Salmon Arm are valued and cared for!
Warm regards,?
