  • The CFHC Board was pleased to receive a $2900 rebate from Fortis for replacing our HVAC system. It felt good to be rewarded for upgrading our system to a more sustainable and efficient one.



  • The Seniors Co-ordinating Society is having a Strategic Planning Session in early May to chart their course for the next years.  This event will be supported by the CBT.
