Happy Holidays Centennial!

I’m excited for winter in Centennial! The festivities in our community kicked off with the Highland Creek tree lighting supported by the Highland Creek Community Association and local businesses on Friday, November 25.  It won’t be long until we are tobogganing in Adams Park and on Big Jake behind Charlottetown Junior Public School.  CCRA is pleased to co-sponsor the St. Dunstan of Canterbury Annual Carol Sing on December 11, at 7:30 pm, 56 Lawson Rd.  There will be Christmas songs and stories followed by refreshments in the parish hall.  We hope you will sing carols with us and partake in holiday cheer.

Our 2016 Annual General Meeting in late October had a great turnout.  We are delighted to welcome three new members to our executive, Wanda Wierzbicki, Rob Elbertsen and Lakshmi Anandaraj. I am delighted to serve for another year as President of CCRA. Here’s our great team for 2017: More
