Comings & Goings On – Transitioning into Spring

Mavourneen Varcoe Ryan's monthly column of community news and events in Spencer Bridge.

The days are getting longer! If you’re still feeling cabin fever, the Spences Bridge Community Club has plenty of events to get you out and about.

Firstly, Bridging to Literacy is hosting events throughout the region to celebrate literacy week. The theme is “Let’s Play together!” On Thursday, Cache Creek Library is hosting a puppet show at 5:30, and at Ashcroft Library there is a games and story night on Friday at 5:30. Finishing off the week  is a free public skate in Ashcroft from 2:15-3:45. Snacks are available at all events as well as a draw for great prizes, with a grand prize draw on Saturday.

Poetry night on Jan. 28 – this is just the beginning for a performing arts component of SBCC. Come to poetry night and read a favorite poem or limerick, or just come and listen!

Soup Day is back! Every Wednesday at noon come and share a few laughs over a bowl of soup. If you’d like to make the soup one week – sign up at the PO. First one is Jan. 27, which will have already happened, but the point is….they’ve begun!

Bingo is being held on the first Monday of each month. Doors open at 5:30 pm, early bird at 6:30, regular bingo starts at 7. Goodies available at the concession. Come try your luck!

Are you missing going to the Farmer’s Market? Well, just to tide you over there will be a Deluxe Winter Market at Clemes Hall on Saturday and Sunday Feb. 27 and 28, from 10 to 2. Crafts, art, baking and second hand treasures! To book your table, (only $5) call Terri at 250-458-2513.

Zumba continues on Friday mornings at 10 in Clemes Hall – it’s a great way to dance off the winter blues and pounds! We are so very lucky to have Karen Savage come to town to offer this fun exercise. You can pay in advance for four sessions, or a single drop in fee.

A reminder that the SBCC Tech lending library has many items to lend out, from laptops and projectors to cameras. Check out is at the Post Office. Thanks Paulet for taking care of the borrowing!

Our regular meeting is held on  the second Wednesday of every month. The next is Feb. 10 at 7pm in the hall – Everyone is welcome!
