LINC (ESL) Classes Finish June 18
LINC stands for Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada and is a program created for immigrants who know some or no English. Here at Abbotsford Community Services LINC classes finish on June 18 and will restart near the end of September 2015. The exact date is still to be determined. However, we will be doing assessments, intakes and registrations all summer.
This is What Your Support Does
On May 29th the New Beginnings program celebrated 25 years of supporting young moms and dads to complete their high school education while providing quality child care to their children. ACS is proud to offer this service to the community in partnership with the Abbotsford School District. When you support ACS, you support programs like New Beginnings and almost 80 other important programs that make a difference in your community. Visit the New Beginnings Website.
It’s Almost Here
The Annual Seniors Picnic in the Park, hosted by ACS’ s Lunch With the Program takes place on Monday, July 27th. And YOU are invited! Meet us at Mill Lake Park (by the Bevan Street entrance) at 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM. It only costs $6.00 but you need to RSVP to Nancy by July 23rd. Call 604.870.3764 or email us. “Programs like Lunch with the Bunch (and this annual picnic) are huge,” says Dr. Alf Chafe. “Anything that brings seniors together is amazingly beneficial. We know that engagement, activity and socialization all have a very positive effect on one’s health.”
