President's Message

It seems hard to believe but spring will arrive later this month.

Saturday March 28th we will be holding a special evening featuring The Rattles “Only The Beatles Do It Better” . This social evening will be held at West Rouge Community Centre starting at 6:00 p.m. It will feature a reception, buffet dinner and a 2 hour live show featuring music of the Beatles. This should be a really fun evening. Mark this date on your calendars, round up your friends and neighbours and reserve your table now by getting in touch with events chair Heather Lemieux.

We have also started our annual membership campaign. The form was included in last month's newsletter or you can join online from this page. Don't put off purchasing your membership. Do it now!

A reminder to students about the William A. Dempsey Scholarship. Details and the application form can be obtained at the bottom of this page.

Looking ahead to spring Earth Day will be held on Saturday April 25th . We'll have more details on this community event in our next newsletter.
