The Revelstoke branch of the Okanagan Regional Library has a very interesting looking workshop coming up on Tuesday, May 19: Pain Management.
Community Librarian Kendra Runnalls said this “should appeal to a big audience as this program is well known and well-respected throughout BC.” “Many Revelstokians have expressed a great interest in having this ongoing workshop series come to our city permanently,” she said. “It is already well-established in Salmon Arm.”
This presentation by Linda Wooster, a facilitator with the University of Victoria’s Centre for Aging, is for anyone who would like to learn how to better manage pain. Whether your painful condition is recurring tension headaches, discomfort from repetitive movement, an old sport injury, recovery from surgery, or a more serious condition you may find this event a real source of relief.

The School District 19 board of trustees is pleased with the passage of Bylaw 2057, which designates the original Mountain View School as a heritage building.

“We are most pleased that Heritage Designation Bylaw No. 2057 was approved by City Council on April 14, 2015.” the board said in a special bulletin released on Friday, May 8.
“This bylaw ensures that, except as authorized by the Bylaw and/or a Heritage Alteration Permit, no person shall:

  1. alter the exterior of a building protected under the Bylaw;
  2. make a structural change to a building protected under the Bylaw;
  3. move a building protected under the Bylaw; and/or
  4. alter, excavate or build on land protected under the Bylaw.

“The bylaw will ensure that the heritage nature of the building will be safeguarded for the future. This was a commitment that the Board of Trustees made at the time of closing the school, and we thank the City for all of their work on this file.”
