I'm going to this!

Wonderful

Don't forget to fall back this weekend. It is also a good reminder to check the batteries in your fire alarms.
Be safe!

Even the rain yesterday couldn’t dampen the spirits of the out trippers who visited the Power to Be site at Prospect Lake. A nature walk that accommodated all levels of mobility followed by a camp fire and snack made for a lovely afternoon. Trips are being planned monthly from both our centres, and other outreach locations as part of our Senior Community Outreach Project in partnership with James Bay New Horizons. ... See MoreSee Less
