The Orillia Winter Carnival committee is looking for volunteers! The committee meets alternating Thursday evenings at 7pm at Couchiching Beach Park (the Volunteer trailer) with the next meeting January 31st, 2013. Volunteers are needed now to help plan and work the carnival!
The Orillia Winter Carnival Committee is pleased to announce we have selected the funding this year for the dip will go to assist the Orillia Youth Centre.
The Orillia Youth Centre is located at 9 Front Street South and is entering the 14th Year of operation.
The mandate of the Orillia Youth Centre is to reduce factors in our community that place youth at risk by providing opportunities for both structured and unstructured activities, as well as, therapeutic programs that are all free of charge to young people. The Youth Centre’s target group is youth ages 11-17, although youth younger than 11 and older than 17 will drop into the Centre and are not turned away if they need assistance.
