This Week at Centennial Place
Each week is a little bit different with things happening for seniors, adults, youth, and toddlers. So many that we decided to consolidate the publicly available programs into one event listing on the community event calendar and in the Hanna Herald. Every Sunday at hanna.ca/events and every Wednesday on page 3 of the Hanna Herald, the activities for the week will be posted. The website will include times, ages, and fees if any. You can always pop in or phone Centennial Place for more information (403) 854-4700.
