Written by Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society

Happy New Year to all members and friends of the family centre

We hope you and your loved ones enjoy a truly new year, blossoming with health and happiness. We look forward to sharing lots of love and learning with you here at the centre.

We closed 2014 with our popular Holiday party at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House. It was great to see so many of you there. The party was funded by our successful bake sale. A big thanks to all our bakers and buyers who supported the sale!
