April 15, 2020

Our update for April 15,2020 contains information about programs, refunds, the Fall 2020 session, and what we are doing to serve our community during these difficult times.


A message from the FHCA Board of Directors:
As we all know, COVID-19 has made many changes and cancellations of activities around the world and at home. We need to ensure the safety of participants, instructors, volunteers, and City staff.
All of our Spring programs are cancelled. Community Centre staff will start contacting participants and processing registration refunds next week.
We look forward to programming for the Fall session.

Thank you, and stay healthy this Spring!

Visit the City of Kitchener for more updates.
