Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Rotary Club of Fort St. John has announced they’ve donated $2,000 to Let’s Art youth programming.

The $2,000 donation is from funds raised from the Rotary Drive-Thru Breakfast in September.

Let’s Art is an after-school program that’s offered for free, for kids ages 6 to 12 years old and teens 12 to 18 years old. The program allows them to explore a variety of art mediums and create new works, all under the supervision of professional local artists.

The donation will help to cover 100 hours of arts instruction offered through the after-school program at the North Peace Cultural Centre.

Operations Manager of the North Peace Cultural Centre, Oliver Hachmeister, says “We’re very pleased to be able to offer this free program to the community to help support art education in the North Peace.”

The Rotary Club raised over $19,000 during their Drive-Thru Breakfast and has also made donations to the CDC, the Fort St. John Literacy Society, and Community Bridge.

The Let’s Art Program will resume in the New Year and any interested families can contact the Cultural Centre at 250-785-1992 or to learn more.
