Cavendish Youth Group
Cavendish Youth Group meets Tuesday evenings from September until June. All children are invited to join us at the Cavendish Community Centre from 6:00 to 7:30. There is no registration fee for being part of our group.
Some of the activities that we do with the children include shoreline clean-up, Settlers Village for Haunted Halloween, Festival of Trees, Pete’s Hockey, Pizza Night, camping and crafts. We have movie night on the last Friday of every month.
We are also looking for your favourite recipes to go into the cookbook that we are creating!
Knit & Lit
Trent Lakes Public Library is starting a new program on January 13th for local crafters of all ages. Whether you are an expert or a beginner, come join for an informal gathering of knitting, crocheting and fibre arts. All you need to bring are your craft materials. If you are looking for a project we will supply the yarn and pattern to create items for local shelters. We can help teach people who want to learn the basics as well. We will also have a variety of crafting books available.
Knit and Lit will be held at 11am every Friday at the Buckhorn Branch of the Trent Lakes Public Library starting on January 13th. Everyone is welcome to attend this free program and registration is not required.
