Community Nights

The HUB is offering free programs for the community this May. Our Spring 2021 session will be for families and individual participants across various age groups. Some of them will be offered in-person (as Public Health allows) while others will be offered through interactive video online, so if you want to participate in more than one, you can! Please register to receive more information on how to join. 

Note: In-person programs will require all attending to take a health screening assessment prior to the start of each session and we will be following physical distancing guidelines and face-covering by-laws.
