The Vision for Scandinavian Community Centre

SCCS Brainstorming Session 1pm Sunday January 14th, 2018

Members of all Houses are invited to the Centre between 1- 4 pm for an afternoon of ideas, input, wishes and goals for our Centre’s future. We are here to share all constructive input.

This should be the base of a 5 year 10 year plan for our Scandinavian home away from home.

Let’s make your voices heard. Please remember this is an afternoon to plan our future. Let’s keep it positive and work together. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
