We’re so excited to announce our new inter-generational program here at The Firehall – Re-Generation! We had a successful soft launch of the program on Thursday, April 25th, 2019. This program officially launches on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 and runs from 10:30 am-12:30 pm. We’d love to see you there!
Re-Generation is a free drop-in for ALL ages! Parents/Guardians must accompany children, it is not a drop-off program. There will be coffee, cards, crafts, books, games, and more! This program is a way to bring together different generations in our community. As some of you may know, Inter-Generational day is coming up on June 1st, 2019, and we’re planning a branch-off event based on this program to continue the inter-generational celebration! More info about June 1st to come, so stay tuned.
So now that we know all about the ‘Generation’ aspect of this program, where does the ‘Re’ fit?! Well, we’ve added an eco-friendly spin to this program. Considering the recent declaration of a Climate Emergency in Ottawa, we want to do our part to bring more awareness and encourage all generations to do what they can to support our environment. We’re taking small steps in the right direction. We’ll have a craft each Thursday that is made from recycled material. That’s right, we’re going to give a new creative life to those egg cartons! This means that we’d also love to receive donations from you that can help to make these crafts new and exciting each week. The possibilities are endless, and it’s a great opportunity to show all ages that we can repurpose these sorts of items. Continuing with the environmental theme to this program, we encourage you to bring along those travel mugs with you and fill them up with delicious fresh coffee that will be provided!
Thursday mornings at the Firehall is the place to be!
