  • Big Smiles.

  • RSVP to Kate Mulligan @ 604-254-1060 or

In addition

We will also be selling tickets for our final fundraising event dedicated to playground funding taking place on September 19th at Hastings Community Centre. This fundraiser will be a chance to let your hair down (or perhaps pin it up) with fabulous bands, drink and special surprises. Meant for adults, this event will be themed “Prom Night, Your Era” and we encourage you to dust off your prom attire and get ready for an evening of dancing and perhaps the odd giggle. Tickets are $25 per person or $40 for two. More details will follow.
