Curious about the results of the recent Discovering Community Survey?
All who live, work, play or study in Qualicum Beach are welcome to the Discovering Community Café on Saturday, May 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. The survey was organized by the Qualicum Community Education and Wellness Society (QCEWS).
In the morning, the group will look at the results and identify project ideas that flow from the identified needs.
After lunch, in a conversational café format, people will gather around topic tables and begin the work of organizing and action-planning for the delivery of the projects that they want to see happen.
Working collaboratively, QCEWS embraces opportunities to improve the quality of life for all community members. Their work is organized around several “tables” which focus on: Intergenerational Lifelong Learning, Food Security and Sustainability, Community Wellness, Universal Access and Community Development.
A light nutritious lunch will be served by the group’s Food and Sustainability team. RSVP requested for lunch, so there is enough food for all, email to: email@example.com.
QCEWS also announced this week that Accessibility Week in Parksville Qualicum Beach has been scheduled for June 19-26. On Friday, June 23 at 10 a.m., QCEWS will be walking around Qualicum Beach with Mayor Teunis Westbroek, experiencing all of the accessibility improvements made by the Town of Qualicum Beach.
Building community access for exercise with an accessible gym is also being explored. On May 31 at Qualicum Commons, there will be a demo from 2:30-3:30 p.m. for accessible gym equipment, with anyone interested invited to attend.
The public is also welcome to join in the next UAQB meeting. It will take place Wednesday, May 24, from 2-4 p.m. at Qualicum Commons Room 1, 744 Primrose Ave, Qualicum Beach. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another project of QCEWS Wellness and Universal Access Tables is the just-completed Domes family’s “Aktiver Zyklos” (Active Cycle) in Europe. There is an opportunity to contribute to this goal at www.qcews.com.
