Woodwork projects bring seniors and youths together

The Summerland Asset Development Initiative’s Wonderful Woodworking sessions this fall and winter will bring seniors and youth together.

The Summerland Asset Development Initiative’s Wonderful Woodworking sessions this fall and winter will bring seniors and youth together.

Seniors interested in woodwork and related activities will pass on their skills, knowledge and passion to youths.

SADI recently received a Government of Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Grant.  Through this grant SADI will be running several woodworking workshops this fall and winter.

The first session was go-kart building. Over the course of two weeks the youth and senior combination built five go-karts for the youth. With great teamwork and fun, the carts went together quickly.

The Wonderful Woodworking Project’s next two events include a SADI booth at the Festival of Lights, Friday Nov 30,  where they will be putting together yo-yos.

The next session will be making wooden Christmas ornaments

The sessions will involve some scroll  saw work for the youth plus assembly and painting of ornaments.

The sessions will run at SADI on Monday, Dec, 3 and 10 and also Thursday, Dec. 6 and 13 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

If you are interested in volunteering for either of these sessions or for one of our future sessions please call Mary Beth  Rutherford at 494-7136.
