Happy to hammer!

Upcoming Events

Posted on: June 14, 2019

We've added an "Upcoming Events" link to the top menu to make details of scheduled events more  accessible.  As occasions such as dinners or yard sales are planned, we'll announce them in "What's New" but also post the details on our Upcoming Events page so that you can refer to them easily as the event approaches.

Our spring yard sale was a great success again this year, raising over $800 for the Centre.  In addition to our own Rural 60+ tables, twelve other vendors rented tables, bringing a wide assortment of merchandise.  A huge thank-you goes to the members who volunteered at the sale and to those who donated baking or other items.
