Wine Wednesday: Introduction to Whisky Edition!

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Last month, we held our inaugural monthly Wine Wednesday at Everything Wine! Our first event was a whisky tasting and it was a full house of River District residents in attendance. Everything Wine’s Kady Smith led a session informing us of the intricacies of whisky and how best to enjoy this drink.

We look forward to this month’s Summer edition of Wine Wednesday featuring refreshing cool, crisp wines hosted by Jonathan Yee.

Ladies Night: Let’s Get Organized!

Having a tidy and organized space can contribute to a more relaxed and calm state of mind. Last month for Ladies Night, Rosely stopped by the River District Neighbourhood Centre to give some useful tips and tricks on how to transform our spaces. It can be overwhelming attempting to purge our possessions but Rosely’s tips gave us the power to take back control of our spaces and our lives.

This month’s Ladies Night is an introduction to essential oils led by Arshia Khan of Souffle De La Vie, who takes pride in creating environmentally conscious products that are good for you and the wellbeing of our planet.
