Another year of music & movement!

The Family Centre - with its partners Centennial Place and incredible volunteers Nancy and Lee - is delighted to announce the dates for our 2016 Music & Movement Session!!

As with past years, this program is FREE for local children 0-5 and their caregivers.  This is a wonderful multi-generational activity as Centennial Place residents are able to join in with the fun and music.  A snack is provided by Centennial Place.

The sessions run on alternate Mondays (dates below) from 10-11am and are offered on a drop-in basis.  No need to register!!

Parents are reminded to please keep their little ones at home if they are sick - this is very important due to the fragile health of some of the Centennial Place participants.

There will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and lots of festive fall fun!  Hope to see you there.
