Celebrations: More Dirty Dancing
Tuesday, November 6th
Leaving the Centre at 10:30 a.m.
It’s great to be alive, in the summer of ’65… unless you’re Chris “Babe” Gardiner that is. You see Chris (Babe to those who know him) has to spend the best weeks of the summer with his parents at some boring resort. To add to Babe’s lament, his mother has even signed him up for dance lessons. Babe’s fortunes start to turn however, when he meets his beautiful dance instructor. Can the boy from a stuffy, upper crust family learn to let go and dance like no one is watching?

Winnipeg Police Service Museum
Tuesday, October 9th
Departing the Centre at 10:30 a.m.
Join us for a tour of the museum and see the origins of the Winnipeg Police Service. The exhibits span the early history of the WPD and the other local PDs (which were eventually amalgamated into one), through to the turn of the century. If you are at all interested in Winnipeg History, especially law enforcement history, the Winnipeg Police Museum is a must see. Artifacts date back to the 1800’s are on display. Originally divided into 13 smaller cities, each having its own police department and they amalgamated in 1974, into metro Winnipeg. Uniforms, equipment, firearms, vehicles and documents tell the history of the department.
