SCACS, a non-profit society, is run by a group of dedicated volunteers, providing citizens of the Cariboo with a space to share expression through creativity at 100 Mile House. Society member, Patsy Granberg, appreciates the sense of community that comes of working with other volunteers who support this cause.
I believe in supporting local business,” says Patsy. “I love the personalized service you get by living in a smaller community.” There are many benefits to being in a small town; the slower pace of life and abundance of open space, but especially the connections you build with other people.
Patsy notes that there are a few other local spots that make this community special. Right next to Parkside Art Gallery is Centennial Park, home to Bridge Creek an an impressive waterfall, easily found by following a well-marked trail from the Park.
“I’m proud of the dedication and co-operation of our volunteers." explains Patsy. “Parkside Art Gallery offers so many benefits to those who live here. In order for a community to thrive, you need to provide for creative expression through the arts. Please support Parkside Art Gallery and its artists.”
Artistic. Creative. Eclectic.
