The Ambassador Program is hosting a beverage and burger evening on Friday, Mar. 10 at Cottonwood Golf Course.

The event is a fundraiser to help pay for the annual program, which works with Ladysmith youth to help them mature in both personal development as well as learn about their community.

Since last October the candidates have been meeting every Thursday as well as participating in many community events to further their knowledge of community and volunteerism.

The program includes public speaking, taught by the Cowichan Toastmasters, as well as courses in local history, interpersonal skills and an opportunity to work and cooperate with others.

The Ambassadors travelled to Vernon two weeks ago to participate in their annual Winter Festival.  This past weekend two of the Ambassadors went to the Hyak Festival and Coronation in New Westminster.

The trips are an opportunity for the Ladysmith Ambassadors to talk about their community and spread the knowledge that they learned while taking the program.

The March 10 beverage and burger starts at 6 p.m. and the tickets are $20 a person.  It is also the opportunity for candidate sponsors to meet the candidates and one of the last times the 2017 Ambassadors have to thank the sponsors as well.  There are also silent auction and other events. Tickets are available at the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, L.C.U. Insurance or from any of the Ambassador candidates or by calling 250-245-2263.
