Ride' n ' Palooza at Earl Grey Community Centre

Earl Grey Community Centre has the best Ride & Play drop in.  The reason it is so good is due to organizer Alison McLean, her helpers, and the community who loves it.  Fundraisers are semi-annual for new toys.  They also have family fun nights once a month including most big holidays.  I would suggest if you have small children to have a look at their website and pop in and also come help support the playgroup at this fundraisers and shop some local goodies too. Here are the details!!:
