Jenn Meens, the North Columbia Environmental Society’s coordinator for the Revelstoke Kokanee Fish Festival, is seeking participation by adults interested in helping this small community festival remain a success.
“I am excited to let you know that we have a date selected for this year’s festival and would love to know if you are interested in running a session for the students at the festival,” she said in an e-mail shotgunned to NCES members and other individuals.
The date selected is Friday, September 25, and this year’s festival will cater to all Grade Two students at the city’s three elementary schools. It will be held between 8 am and 3 pm at Bridge Creek.
The Kokanee Fish Festival was originally organized and was for years run by School District 9 elementary school teachers. Last year was the first time it was organized by Jenn and the NCES.
“Please get back to me ASAP by Monday, August 31, if you are interested and able to present, help another presenter, or assist with logistics on the day of the event,” Meens said.
She is also thinking about the possibility of offering a Community Kokanee Fish Festival geared for the general community, families and older children and adults.
“I am thinking of putting in a proposal to do a community Revelstoke Fish Festival that evening as well, if presenters are interested in reaching a different audience,” she said. “Please let me know if you would be interested in running a session for an evening event tailored towards the general community… interested in learning about the Kokanee and their local habitat, health… I would be trying to find a Keynote speaker for the event as well.”
If you’d like to assist in this event you can contact Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
