Looking for Halloween Costumes

Now that Halloween is over we are collecting clean wearable costumes of all ages to restock our Halloween Costume closet for next year. This was our first year and it was successful.

Costumes can be dropped off on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays 10am-3pm. Please do not drop off when we are closed with the weather changing if it rains or snows we usually have to discard the items.

Thank you for your continued support

Summer is here and so is so many new events & happenings at The Centre

To start with we have two new staff members Perpetual doing centre management and cooking. Kim Richer as our community connector.

Every Friday is COFFEE HOUR (11am-1pm) where we serve coffee, decaf coffee, tea, hot chocolate and lemon water. Usually accompanied by fresh baking by Perpetual.

The 1st and 3rd Monday is preparing delicious ready to eat meals. Ready for pick up after noon. Please return the container in comes in so we can reuse it.
