Gatherings

Gatherings offer opportunities to connect and strengthen community. During the curriculum year, gatherings will bring all of our EPIC Community Rings together: Seeds, Roots, Pollinators and Forest. These gatherings are nourishing, inviting us to create bonds with one another, share food, learn together, seek support, celebrate and collectively continue to build our centre, aligned with our core values. With the current public health restrictions related to Covid-19 this is looking quite different for the community. We look forward to a time when we can return to meeting regularly and enjoy the time we have to connect with each other at drop off and pick up of our children.

Yearly Events:

Annual General Meeting, December, 2021

Our short business agenda includes the presentation of financial statements, appointing an interim financial director, and reviewing any necessary bylaws. The business portion will be followed by a family celebration to mark the end of the fall season and celebrate as a community. Stay tuned for more details.
