The exciting theme of the Oct. 7. Open House and Silent Auction at the Centennial Centre main gymnasium will be ‘Mindful Expressions’.

The open house, art show, and silent auction will be featured on Oct 7 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Organizers are searching for various forms of artwork, such as a paintings, drawings, poetry, sketches, stained glass, woodcarvings, quilting, flower arrangements and any other ideas and items that can be added to the exciting display. Musically gifted people are also required to provide the background music for the event. If you, or someone you know would like to display, demonstrate, or perhaps donate some artwork to the occasion please get in touch with Colleen McGinnis by phone at 403-783-7634.
