Make sure to check out Mark Northey’s edible mushrooms of Kaslo display and our hands-on apple-pie making demo with pastry chef Leticia Hamilton.
Last but not least, you can also bring any of your 2018 home canning creations for our canning and processed food swap. Trade jar for jar with your neighbours. Who knows, you may go home with the best chutney, salsa, pickles or jam you’ve ever tasted!
Tuesday October 16th, 11am-1pm at Kaslo Food Hub….
Naloxone Training at the Kaslo Food Hub with Chelsea Helmer (registered psychiatric nurse, emergency mental health services). Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. Since our Province declared a public health emergency in 2016, community-based naloxone distribution and training has increased. You are invited to help respond to this crisis by becoming informed, carrying a naloxone kit and becoming trained in how to use one. The overdose crisis impacts our whole community. People use substances for a variety of reasons and could be at risk no matter what their reason for using (prescription or illicit, regular use or occasional use). Come and learn more. Bring your questions. Chelsey will provide trainings throughout her time at the Food Hub. Each training takes 10-15 minutes and you receive a free Naloxone overdose prevention kit.
Strong Start Parent and Child Time will be closed in Kaslo on Wednesday, October 17th and in Meadow Creek on Thursday, October 18th due to a staff training event.
Please help spread the word.

Art Exhibits, Live Theatre, FLIKS, Spooky Stuff!
Awesome October events coming to The Langham!
Fall brings wonderful new art exhibits, organic free-range local theatre, the return of FLIKS, and at the end of the month a spooky Staged Reading of Frankenstein and another creepy Langham haunt on Halloween night!
Note that this presentation of Frankenstein is a Stage Reading as opposed to a full-blown production. A stage reading is a form of theatre without sets or full costumes, in which the actors, who read from scripts, may be seated, stand in fixed positions, or incorporate minimal stage movement.
Its an opportunity for the community to witness local theatre in the process of creation! “It’s Alive!!!”
This Special Kaslo Halloween Haunt from Scream Dimension will be in the Langham theatre from about 6pm to 9pm on Halloween night Wednesday October 31st. Toonie entrance fee.
…And See You at The Langham!
