Come out for the Elks Soap Box Derby, visit Chauvin Greenhouses, experience 114 years of history at the Chauvin Museum, and take a self-guided tour of historical homes and landmarks. Repsol Community Centre hosts individual and family skating, hockey lessons and team games, skating and figure skating lessons, plus a three sheet curling rink, and offers a large arena and commercial kitchen available for rental/events.
