A perfect excuse to stay home and shop local
As we move into fall and winter the weeks leading up to the holiday season our thoughts turn to, not just all the great outdoor activities in Kimberley’s backyard, but shopping and finding comfort food and activities close to home.
The #LiveLocal #EatLocalYXC is the chance to discover Kimberley creative entrepreneurs, cafes, restaurants, retailers and professional services.
You can do that this Thursday from Oct. 22 to Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with focus on Kimberley entrepreneurs, producers and creators.
It’s a fun way to connect and learn about the businesses that your neighbours operate and hear about deals and incentives going on all month.
Think of the #LiveLocal #EatLocal YXC Festival as the perfect chance to get going on your holiday shopping, finding unique gift ideas for friends and family.
Oct. 29 at noon – Learn all about Hannah Yager’s new Kimberley-based business, a unique counselling service for teens, families and individuals. But Yager also offers another unique program called Adventure Therapy (also known as Outdoors or Wilderness therapy). Yager is passionate about the idea that getting outside is so important for people and helping support their goals. She, along with a guide, takes people out on overnight canoe trips, hiking, or climbing, helping people build confidence in the outdoor. Her services extend to the business community helping with team-building sessions and outdoor adventure retreats.
“Converging Currents hopes to inspire people to live out their true purpose, take intentional risks, face challenges, and achieve their personal and professional goals. The #Livelocal event will be an opportunity for the community to hear more about the adventure therapy services that Converging Currents offers,” says Yager.
