Programs Open on Saturdays and Sundays

Saturday, May 13th will be the last Saturday drop-in until September 9th (9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.). 

On Saturday, May 27th, you are invited to join our Stroller-a-thon, play in the backyard, and/or purchase tasty treats from the Bake Sale! All families are welcome to participate in the Stroller-a-thon—including an obstacle course at Jimmie Simpson Centre/Park—whether “strolling”, cycling, or moving in any other way! If you would like to collect pledges or donate to the Centre, you can do so online, or with cash or cheque any time. We are also gratefully accepting nut-free baked goods, sandwiches, and drinks for the Bake Sale

We hope you’ll join us on May 27 for this fun community event!
