FAMILY DAY UNPLUGGED
Family Day is on February 18th, and all over the province Family
and Community Support Services (FCSS) programs are encouraging
families to “unplug” to promote families spending time together.
Kneehill Regional FCSS is asking everyone to disconnect from
technology and connect with themselves, family and community
for the day.
Research has found that 73% of kids would rather play with
their parents than watch TV or use the internet; teens who have
more than three family dinners per week are more likely to get
better grades; older adults who visit with friends and family have
a higher health-related quality of life and particularly better
mental health; and residents in connected neighborhoods have
a greater quality of life.
Let’s all “Disconnect to Connect” on February 18th. Watch
for more information and events in upcoming editions of the
Capital
2013 MINISTER’S SENIORS SERVICE AWARDS
Do you know someone who volunteers with Seniors? Or an
organization that helps Seniors? Why not nominate them for
a Seniors Service Award. Nomination forms are available
at the Village office. The deadline is February 28th, 2013.
Support our volunteers and let them know that you think they
are doing a great job.
COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
There is a new monthly newsletter available at the village office
and some businesses in the village. It is also available on the
village website. We are hoping this will open a new line of
communication.
