The open house for the Sunshine Club on Saturday, Nov. 4 was a huge success. Many new programs received enough interest to continue. If you missed out, drop by the Echo Centre and pick up a copy of their newsletter or drop by their office and speak to a volunteer—they will be more than happy to fill you in.

The Cookbook Club not only gives you nourishment for your brain, but also for your appetite. This is a club for people who love cooking, cookbooks, trying new recipes, learning new things, eating delicious food and making new friends.

The Sunshine Computer Club is great for all levels. Don’t know about computers, but want to learn? Want to watch presentations about the newest and weirdest stuff in the tech world? Want to know how to keep your computer (and yourself) safe on the internet? All this and more will be answered when you join.

If you love to read, the Second Book Club invites you to join their group. They all read the same book of the month from the library, then discuss it at the following month’s meeting.

There is also a belly dancing group, run under the leadership of Kathy Trew. Classes are Wednesdays from 1-2 p.m.

You name the interest, and there is sure to be a program. For more information, the Echo Sunshine Club office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (except statutory holidays). Their phone number is 250-720-2505.

Like to cook and like to eat? Here is Susan Mork of the Cook Book Club. (SONJA DRINKWATER PHOTO)
