Trivia Night

Every third Tuesday of the month, MEPEC hosts an online Trivia Night.

We invite you to put your thinking caps on and join us to test your knowledge. Team up with your family, in the comfort of your home, and answer a series of questions.

All the rules and procedures will be explained to the participants at the beginning of the activity. So, get your team ready and sign up now!

Intergenerational PEN-PALS

MEPEC will help to facilitate meaningful exchanges between school-aged children and seniors of our region to encourage literacy and social connections. We are looking for 15 to 20 seniors participants.

You can choose how many children you would like to write to. The time commitment for each child would likely be between 30 minutes and 1 hour. We have 3 teachers from the Riverside School Board interested in the letter-writing campaign.

Grade 2 – They want to perhaps write cards as their writing isn’t very developed currently. (English)
Grade 3 – They would participate if it can be done in French
