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!
Over the next few months we will be exploring ways to support healthy mental, emotional health in our children. In partnership with the Dalai Lama centre's Heart-Mind Well-Being initiative we will have special activities and events to share with you...stay tuned!
