Heritage Thursdays


Heritage Thursdays is a weekly Thursday afternoon children's program that operates in the summer. Each year the program is based on a popular or pertinent theme. In 2017, to commemorate Canada turning 150, the program theme was Canadian history. Another past theme implemented was Discovering Decades in which activities correspond to the cultural activities spanning the decades from the 20's to the 80's.

We invite you to join us this summer for our 22nd annual Heritage Thursdays! We will be taking part of traditional children’s games, crafts, and activities such as the egg toss, tie-dye, butter making and more, which show us how important history can be while still having fun!



Blast from the Past – July 12th
