Ponoka White Caners begin 2013 meetings

The Ponoka White Caners peer support group for the vision loss began the 2013 fall session with a regular meeting on Oct. 2

The Ponoka White Caners peer support group for the vision loss began the 2013 fall session with a regular meeting on Oct. 2 at the Anglican Church. The Nov. 6 meeting at Rimoka will provide interesting information for local residents regarding vision aid products because our CNIB area representative, Mindy Bodnarchuk, will demonstrate helpful items from the CNIB store. The December event will be attendance at the Klaglahachie Fine Art Society’s musical presentation of The Sound of Music, at the Ponoka United Church.

All are welcome to attend the meetings of the Ponoka White Caners peer support group held on the first Wednesday of each month at 1:15 p.m.
