The start of the New Year brought in some change for the Leisure & Community Services Department at the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville.
In accordance with provincial guidelines announced in early January, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville closed it’s recreational, cultural, and administrative buildings to the public as of January 5.
Staff immediately pulled together to be able to continue to serve residents during the closure period.
If you’re looking for something to do with your family, the town has you covered.
There are now substantial lists with virtual and outdoor programming available for anyone who is looking for something to do. Some programs even have prizes to be won.
