CCRA brings information on what’s happening in and around Centennial to residents throughout the year with the free CCRA Centennial News and e-blast updates, as well as Facebook and Twitter posts.
Advocacy and community development
CCRA is on the front lines of social, cultural, environmental and community issues. During the Johns Manville plant closure, CCRA mobilized residents and local resources to help eliminate the hazard of concentrated residual asbestos fibres near the Port Union Waterfront.
Social gatherings close to home
Friends and neighbours get together every year at CCRA’s Spring Social for a buffet dinner and dance, cash bar, raffle and door prizes. Our 2017 headliner was up-and-coming country music artist Vanessa Marie Carter.
In 2016, residents watched as the west wall of Centennial Plaza was transformed with the beautiful Passage to Port Union mural. This massive painting portraying important aspects of the area’s history was introduced to our community at a public celebration and ceremony at the plaza.
