I was among a cast of volunteers last night helping to serve 200 turkey dinners at the annual Christmas dinner celebration at Monterey Centre. What a wonderful way to get right into the Christmas spirit! We were joined by Oak Bay Council members, MLA Ida Chong, members and staff of the Oak Bay Parks and Recreation Commission and all the wonderful people who make the Monterey Centre tick.
What a terrific community resource the Centre is and the word “centre” really means the center of such great community activities, volunteers and participants who come from near and far. The Monterey Centre continues to have a positive impact on our community and this time of year is particularly meaningful, as we remember and acknowledge all of those who give freely of their time and expertise to make the Monterey Centre an integral part of Oak Bay.
