SHOAL Centre is a wonderful place to spend the festive season with special events and activities. Our kitchen staff are busy planning a turkey dinner with all of the trimmings for Christmas Day. Please make sure you call to reserve your table early. The kitchen has also been very busy baking delicious shortbread and mince tarts – a perfect gift for friends and family, or a treat for yourself. They’ll be available at the Tuck Shop starting December 10. I would like to thank all of our staff and volunteers for their hard work throughout the year; it makes SHOAL Centre a welcoming place for our community. Happy holidays everyone!
