Today we marked the beginning of our 2019-2020 programming year. ACHA held its first board meeting to finalize key dates in this year’s calendar of events and review the year’s programming structure, which is based on this years theme NIA (purpose). It was nice to have youth alumni Chioke Yafeu-Davis and Nai Sun share their perspective on youth programming among other things.
Thank you all for coming
We encourage members, new families, and community members to join us as we kick off this years programming
ACHA's highly anticipated annual cook-off is here again. Members and the community get a chance to showcase their culinary skills and see who comes out on top. This years main ingredient is TAMARIND.
Nutritionist and ACHA alumni Vicky Brooks-Johnson will be on hand to enlighten us on the health benefits of tamarind and the importance of adopting a holistic approach to healthy living.
Community members are encouraged to drop by for a taste of ACHA. Bring in your favorite tamarind creation. We'll love to see you there.
Winter Appreciation Day - Saturday January 5th 2019
Its that time of the year again, when members of ACHA, friends, family and supporters all gather at the Habourfront Centre ice rink, 235 Queen St. West between 12.00 - 4.00pm.
It's always a fun day for both young and not so young, skaters and non-skaters, as we catch up after the holiday break.
The weather promises to be great (not extremely cold) and there is always the indoor cafeteria where some gather to keep warm or grab a bite. Skates are available for rent from the centre.
Looking forward to seeing you there. The invitation is open to all, bring a friend along .
Please note: We will be back at Centennial College on Saturday, January 12th for regular programming.
