Winter Party in the Park - Thank you to our supporters!

It was a wonderful winter day for the Annual Winter Party in the Park and our 2nd Annual Soup Cook-Off on January 17th. Friends and neighbours enjoyed horse drawn sleigh rides, hot dogs, roasting marshmallows by the fire, hot chocolate and yummy sweets. Children of all ages had fun sledding, snowshoeing, and trying their hand at broomball & ringette.

A market sale will run once again alongside the Main Event Community Party on June 18, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., at Brantwood Park.
