Activity Centre on Facebook for the weekly schedule.
MENTOR PROGRAM: The Mentoring Program is for youth ages 13-16
who would like to be carefully matched with a mentor who is 18
years or older. They participate in one-on-one activities in the
community which can include meeting at the Club, Talisman Place,
the Library, etc. It is a one year commitment which is based on
friendship, trust, support and fun! Mentors and mentees meet a
minimum of once a month and up to once a week, whichever
works for their schedules. The Mentoring Coordinator facilitates
the relationship by remaining in contact with the Mentor, Mentee
and their family and providing initial training and ongoing support

for everyone involved. Applications can be picked up at the Club.

Children attending the Edson Fire Department’s annual “Kids Christmas Party” posed with Santa Claus
on December 6 at the Edson Fire Hall. Families were invited for an hour swim at Talisman Place and
then ate lunch at the hall. A visit from Santa ended the festivities, giving each child a small gift to enjoy.
