Savour Our Neighbourhood 
Thank you to all who contributed and supported our fundraiser, Savour Our Neighbourhood. You helped to make it a great success! We couldn't have done it without the dedicated efforts of our board and volunteers, and the generous donations of food, beverage, and servers from our local restaurants, breweries, and wineries.

You are welcome to beat the rush and renew or purchase your annual membership in April! Speak to staff to find out more!
