April at the Family Centre

An enormous thank you to everyone who helped to make our fundraiser, Savour Our Neighbourhood, a huge success!
This event would not have been possible without the generous donations from the community and the countless hours of work on the part of our volunteer board of directors.
Thanks so very much!

Membership Renewal Month is Coming! Membership fees are a much needed part of our annual revenue. They help to fund our family drop-in, parent education programs, workshops, special events, and seasonal celebrations. Memberships run from May until April. You can place your membership in person at the Family Centre with cash, cheque, or credit card. Memberships renewed in April will be applied to next year. If you don't yet have a membership, or if it has expired, you are welcome to make a donation to the drop-in each time you visit. Just drop your donation in the little box on the table where you sign in!

Lost and Found Our Lost and Found box is overflowing with hoodies, hats, water bottles, and more! Please check through our collection and take home anything you might have left behind. Items that have been here longer than 2 months will be placed in the donation bin at the end of next week!

Puddle Fun! Please remember that on particularly rainy days, part of our ball court floods, so we have a fabulous large puddle to play in. This is a great experience for the kids, just come prepared with rain suits and boots!

Clothing Exchange Donations We welcome donations of used clothing, books, or toys in excellent condition. Please do not donate stained, broken, incomplete, or worn out items. Also, as we have very limited storage space, please limit your donations to one or two grocery bags at a time.

And now, on to April
April 14, Tuesday: 9:30 - 11:30 AM Toddler Round Up! If you have questions about your child's health and development, Public Health Nurses will be available during the morning drop in to address your concerns. If your child will be attending the drop-in with a grandparent or other caregiver, a release form must be signed before the nurses can interact with your child. Release forms are available at the Family Centre.

Looking forward to May
May 2 - June 28 Saturdays: 10 - 11:30 AM 1-2-3 Jump! Physical Literacy for 2 & 3yr olds. Have fun with your child moving and learning in new ways. Registration is required. The program is offered free in partnership with Little Mountain Neighbourhood House. We ask that you have a current family centre membership to participate.
