There are 2 Daddy and Me events this week. Wednesday at Robert Ogilvie gymnasium and Saturday at the NP Cultural Centre. Come enjoy some active play together and/or create a valentine sensation for someone special.
The gym is open anytime after 5:45. We usually start clean up sometime between 7 and 7:15. Then we eat snack and enjoy time at Strong Start. There were some disappointed little ones last month who came after 7 when we were cleaning up. I apologize to those families for the confusion in scheduling.

The all ages Open Mic is starting to catch on at Patch Java. Several veteran musicians attended and took time to mentor some young performers. There were video clips from the Reel NEAT contest winners along with various performances including covers from the Beatles, KT Tunstall and the Bruce Cockburn. There were over 30 people in attendance varying in age from newborn to seniors. It was an excellent community event and is held on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 6 – 8. (The music didn’t stop until almost 9.)
