Afternoon Social - Sept 13th

Wednesday September 13th immediately following the CMA business meeting

Bus leaves at 2:10 pm and will be back by 5pm


We have planned an afternoon to experience storytelling and history of the local Secwepemc first nations people. The experience will include catering by Chef Steven Teed of Delicious Business Catering and Consulting that is sponsored by New Afton Mine - New Gold Inc.
