25th ANNIVERSARY RECOGNITION DINNER: We’re turning 25 and we want you to help us celebrate this milestone! On Thursday, April 6 join us at Mount Saint Vincent University’s Rosaria Student Centre for an evening of food, friends (old and new), and fun as we mark this occasion and recognize the many individuals and organizations who have supported the Centre. We’re honoured that Norma Lee MacLeod, Host and Producer of CBC’s Maritime Noon will emcee this special event and you won’t want to miss our guest speaker Dr. Brian Goldman, best selling author and host of the CBC’s award winning radio show, “White Coat, Black Art”.
