Kick off to Summer Party!

Woo! It’s that time of year again, where the flip flops come out, and popsicle sticks are stuck to everything and CHARA throws and awesome party just for YOU! We’ve been working out tails off to get ready and we’re nearly there, so come and join us on Friday, June 26th from 5:30-9pm, at the Carleton Heights Community Centre, 1665 Apeldoorn avenue. We’ve got pizza and drinks and treats for sale, so no need to worry about dinner. Leave the screens alone, and let the kids try out some fun games, run through the bouncy obstacle course, laugh along with Monkey Rock, and be wowed by the talent of Corona Gymnastics.

We’re holding an amazing raffle with loads of prizes, and a 50/50 draw if winning cash is more your style.

Think you’ve got something to add? email us at
