A sensory garden has been planted at Lorne Avenue Park to commemorate our 100th Anniversary.

A celebration was planned for June 2021 but due to the pandemic it will not be held at this time. We are hopeful that an event can be planned in the fall.

Visiting other clubs has always been an important social outing for club members.
