Youth Update Youth Nights at the Youth Centre Now open to all Youth and Parents Due to scheduling changes and conflicts for Parents/Youth who attend Youth Nights at the Youth Centre, Youth Nights will now be Tuesdays and Thursdays starting approximately 4:30PM. Please remember that it does get dark out there fast, and it is pretty chilly out there this time of year so any Youth who are walking unsupervised should be dressed properly.

Tae Kwon Do Mondays and Wednesdays at 5PM Tae Kwon Do has been greatly attended. Since December, we have had 4 more girls join the first class. We are now up to 9 students for the 7-10 Years class, and are still at 3 for the 11-15 Years class, as well as 5 adult participants. Congratulations to Zac, Zeb, William, Aiden, Kiara, Joel and Jewel for passing there testing for their yellow stripe!
