Annually the Social Development Department hosts the TTES Community Easter, Halloween and Christmas parties, and partners with Secwépemc Child and Family Services and Q’wemtsin Health Society to host the TTES Community Picnic and Heath Fair. The department hosts the Annual TTES Women’s Retreat in February and the Elder’s Retreat in September. These events take a lot of cooperation and dedication from not only Social Development and partners, but also from the Janitorial and Security teams. Social Development thanks all of our event partners for all you do!
