KS – December 21, 2017


Week in Review

Merry Christmas Kanata South! Thank you to St. James School and Tiny Hoppers Bridlewood for inviting me in to see their Christmas concerts last week.

I would also like to thank St. Martin de Porres School for all your efforts collecting items to donate to the CHEO Mental Health program.  Well done!
