Youth Appreciation Day
Thursday, May 5th is Youth Appreciation Day in Qualicum Beach!

We will be celebrating at Town Square from 11:15am to noon, with hot dogs, cookies and prizes!

Youth Week is a provincial celebration held annually from May 1-7, to help build strong connections between young people and their communities, and to profile the issues, accomplishments, and diversity of youth across the Province.

Let's continue to invest in our youth, and recognize the contributions they make to our community and future!
