February 2018 Community Newsletter

The month of LOVE: February

February 2018

Welcome February, the month to celebrate LOVE #downbytheriver. This month participate in our LOVE theme events. Join us and Everything Wine for a Red Hot Wine Lovers Wine Tasting and a Valentine’s Craft Session for the kids. While our current programs continue, try something new with a Nritya (Dance) Workout and Healing Mudras. This month we also celebrate Lunar New Year (year of the dog), stop by and pick up your lucky red envelope!

NEW NAME: River District Neighbourhood Centre

As we approach our 7th year (lucky number 7) #downbytheriver, it was time to review and re-evaluate our mission and purpose. With the growth of the River District community, there was some confusion of the role and services provided. As a result, we have renamed the River District Centre or River District Community Centre to River District Neighbourhood Centre. After all, we’re here for the River District neighbourhood. We will be making some minor updates so be sure to stop by and say hello.



This month get to know the people down by the river.
