Rhea Pretsell brings this to our attention:

The Quinte Child Care Centre has been operating as a registered non-profit, full day licensed child care centre for more than 30 years. It first began over 35 years ago as the BCI Child Care Centre at the now closed Belleville Collegiate Institute and Vocational School as a drop-in program for adults who were returning to high school to earn their diploma, (not unlike the program at Abigail’s). The BCI Child Care Centre moved to Quinte Secondary School in 1992 and began operating under the name of QSS Child Care Centre, and continued to offer licensed child care services to the community in that location until 2018. Following the closure of Quinte Secondary School, the centre continued its partnership with the Hastings & Prince Edward District School Board, and it moved just down the street into Park Dale Public School in November 2018, where it has been warmly welcomed by the staff, as well as, the parents and students. Please see the website https://quintechildcarecentre.com/

The QCC Centre is currently seeking new board members; Board experience is preferred, but not necessary. For more information, contact Rhea Pretsell – pretsell@sympatico.ca


Martha Grant brings this to our attention.

Below is a link referring to a recent Globe and Mail in depth report on recycling. In it Nadine Kerr, our recent speaker and the daughter of Caroll Hennessy was mentioned


The following link has a video at the very first that features Nadine and gives others in the club who might not have heard her session useful insights into the world of recycling. I thought it might be nice to send it out and make the link available on our twitter.
