is open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 (noon) and from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. We also open two evenings: Monday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 (winter hours) and 7:00 to 9:00 (summer hours)

People come to the Centre to socialize, watch t.v., play cards and/or board games, use the library, read newspapers etc. They also come to enjoy a daily breakfast; a special breakfast is served once a month. Once a month we also have a special lunch-BBQ in the summer. On February 21, we will have a special lunch of soup and submarine sandwiches along with desserts.

The Centre organizes a variety of outings for those interested in taking part—the most recent was a visit to the ice sculptures and a walk on the canal. The next, hopefully, will be to the sugar bush, weather permitting. The events are announced on the local bulletin board so that everyone can be informed well in advance.
