A few years ago someone approached me about starting a program for youth in Fernie, I think it involved the arts, and I hadn’t really thought much at the time about the lack of activities for kids aged 12-18. But I’m impressed that now there is something available – something social, supportive, positive and creates wonderful opportunities. Fernie’s so great. There are also many amazing programs through the Fernie Heritage Library, but that’s another story.
Fernie Youth Action Network plans events and the next one up is Movies & Games night on November 25th at Vogue Theatre.
So if you’re new in town and you have kids 12-16 years old, it’s a free event and it involves a movie, arcade and pizza!
Speaking of Vogue, this is what’s playing right now…
