SENIORS’ SCENE: Sweet ideas at Kent Street

Family Day and Valentine's Day are the theme behind just a few of the goings-on at Kent Street Activity Centre this month.

It’s Family Day on Feb. 9, and there is a free skate at Centennial Arena from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Free admission, rentals and refreshments – open to all ages.

Don’t wait until the last minute; be sure to include us in your Valentine’s plans.

Kick up your heels at Kent Street’s Feb. 11 dance, stop by the Kent Street Coffee Shop for a Valentine’s treat, or take your sweetheart out for a Silver Blades skate at Centennial Arena Feb. 11 or 13.

The Kent Street Senior Society will host a Book and Bake Sale on Saturday, Feb. 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Kent Street auditorium.
