Interested in learning more about us?
We will continue to collect knitted baby hats for Southlake Regional Health Centre throughout the year. A donation box, patterns and the Southlake newsletters are available at the community table at our monthly meetings.
Thank you to all our members who knit for this program. If there are members or friends of members who no longer knit and wish to donate any wool they have accumulated, we would gladly accept it and pass it on to those who continue with this pastime.

After sharing a delicious lunch, small groups will discuss their chosen topic. On Monday, March 18, 10-12, these groups will meet at 900 Bogart Mills to finalize decisions around these resolutions. Recommendations will be taken to the March 26 General Meeting.
