    Leader of the Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau, visited NCFC on Friday, July 5th, as a part of his tour of Western Canada. A BBQ was held to celebrate the visit and members of the community got a chance to hear Mr. Trudeau’s vision for his party and for all of Canada. We thank all the members of the community who came to listen, and we thank our community partners who were in attendance as well.

    This morning at 10:30 a.m. participants embarked on our annual five kilometer road race, which began at the NCFC. Those who participated were of all ages, and either ran, biked, walked, rollerbladed, or skateboarded. At the end of the race, a barbecue lunch was held at the Centre, and three awards were given out to our first place finishers. Damian (centre) finished first out of the skateboarders, Nick (right) finished first out of the runners, and Ryan (left) finished first out of the bikers.

    In partnership with the Crime Prevention Advisory Committee, the five kilometer road race brings the North Central community together, and by doing so, promotes a positive image of what MacLean’s Magazine once deemed to be “the worst neighbourhood in Canada.” This is our way of preventing crime in North Central, and we could not do it without our sponsors, PHIL CAN and the RUNNING ROOM, participants, and members of our community. Everyone at the NCFC would like to thank those of you who joined us this year, and if you have yet to take part in this event, remember, it takes place every year, so we will see you next year!

    For more pictures of the road race see below:

    Let the race begin!

    Thanks, Mom!!!!

    Posted in: Events

    Last Thursday, May 10, 2012, our teens at the NCFC cooked and hosted dinner for their moms. Although the dinner did not take place on the Mother’s Day, we would like to think of it as an “Early Mother’s Day”.

    On one hand, this was their way of giving thanks to their moms, while on the other hand, it also gave us the opportunity to get to know some of the moms of the teens who come to the Centre. There is a good chance that the teens’ “Early Mother’s Day” will take place next year, so prepare for another tasty turkey dinner.
