March Updates

It is hard to believe with the weather we’ve been having in Niagara that spring is officially here, but it is! As usual, there is so much happening at Community Crew. For weekly updates, be sure to follow us on social media.

The month of March marks the one year anniversary of our Executive Director, Stephen Cooper, and he has shared a one year reflections letter in this email update. Thank you for reading!

Calling all Princes and Princesses!

You are hereby invited to experience a wonderful afternoon with your little ones (and support Community Crew!) at the upcoming Fairytale Ball, happening May 5th at Rodman Hall in St. Catharines. From meeting princesses like Cinderella and Elsa to enjoying a lunch buffet and taking part in games and activities, this afternoon is sure to delight. Check out all of the fun activities happening at this memory-making event below.

We appreciate the generosity of 43 North Restaurant Group for hosting this special event in support of Community Crew, and we hope to see you there!
