Fernie Women’s Centre

The board and staff of the Fernie Women’s Centre would like to thank the community for their overwhelming support in the success of our most recent fund raising project, the Fernie Foodies cookbook. Sales have exceeded our expectations with 475 books sold so far! The money from this fundraiser is going to help support the many community programs and services we offer such as: Better Babies, Parent Tot Fun Times, Strong Start, Girls Empowerment Group, Little Sprouts, as well as, individual support and advocacy for women. You can find out more information about the centre and our programs by checking out www.ferniewomenscentre.com or calling 250-423-4687.

We appreciate the assistance of The Free Press in spreading the word about our programs but felt that the title of the article last week “Cleaning up the Women’s Centre” could be misinterpreted by the community. This letter is to clear up any concerns that might have arisen from seeing the title of the article. We would like to assure readers that the Fernie Women’s Centre is operating effectively and efficiently.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of the Centre, which has been a part of the Elk Valley since 1979.
