    I would like to nominate the new arts programs being implimented at the Kamloops CMHA Clubhouse by the members themselves. One program is a rather nicely detailed 4ft by 8ft dragon mural assembled from discarted floor tiles and the other program they have just starting to impliment is wire wrap geodes.
