The annual Holiday Party for members and their families will be held on Friday December 2, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at the Ojibway Park Nature Centre located at 5200 Matchette Road, Windsor, Ontario. The dinner is “pot luck” style and will be served around 7:00 p.m.. Please contact Mike Mastronardi at (michael(dot)mastronardi(at)stantec(dot)com) to coordinate what you will be bringing and confirm the number of people in your party. We typically have a small gift raffle/exchange depending on the number of donations so if you can bring a small ($10 - $20) wrapped gift that would be great!
