Make sure you are following us on Facebook. We are running some great posts on our Facebook page as the community deals with the COVID-19 outbreak. We are posting fun things to do as a family around your house, we also have some arts & craft suggestions, and we will be showcasing some of our programs with recorded or live interactive videos.
Since 2014 the Huron Community Association located within the City of Kitchener continues to offer programs and events to help build a sense of community within our part of the City. Our community is a great place to explore with many nature trails, parks and history. We welcome you to our website and hope to see you at an official HCA event in the near future. Our community is one of the fastest growing areas in the City of Kitchener, and like our community we are growing too, with more programs, locations and events in 2019 and into the future. Should you be inclined to get more involved in our association please refer to our contact page to get in touch with us. Here on our community home page you can find everything you need to know about upcoming community events, HCA board discussions, and info on what and how to register for our community programs offered at Jean Steckle or Janet Metcalfe Schools.
We are proud of everything we've done and look forward to being able to do so much more for our community in the months and years to come. Our community programming attendance is near the top of all City of Kitchener Community Centres, and we thank you all for supporting our programs and reaching out to us and telling us what you would like to see in the future. The future looks bright as we look ahead to being a part of the new Community Centre build on Tartan Avenue. HCA members are actively involved working with the City staff to ensure the new space has everything we could want in a brand new community space!
Our Community is home to some amazing places to visit. We have the Huron Natural area, Parkvale Park, Sophia Park and so much more. We're proud to show support for our environment with our new Bee Pollinator gardens that will be coming soon to spaces around our community. Running an awesome community association can be hard work, and we thank our dedicated team of volunteers for all they do. We could always use a few more helping hands at our events.

COMING EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Check out these upcoming Huron Community Association events. We look forward to seeing you there!
HCA & COVID-19
We are cancelling all of our Spring Programs due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 in our region. We thank everyone for their tremendous interest in our programs, and we are hopeful that come summer session we will be at a place whereby our community programming can resume. For now make sure to check out some of our free live streaming classes on Facebook!
COMMUNITY CLEAN UP
Every spring the HCA and community volunteers go around the neighbourhood cleaning up the litter that has accumulated over the winter. Follow our social media for updates, on a possible date and time for this event. Right now the HCA wants everyone to practice safe social distancing, so that collectively we can slow the spread of COVID-19
POLLENATOR HABITAT BUILDING
This planned event is also on hold now, as the K-W community fights the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to presenting a new date and time sometime soon. We encourage everyone to follow our Facebook page for updates, and want all of our community members to stay safe in these unprecedented times.
SPRING COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING
Unfortunately we have made the decision to cancel all of our planned Spring Programs. This is due to the on-going community concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We want to recommend the continued practice of social distancing & good hand cleaning hygiene during these weeks ahead. Together as a community we can all contribute to the fight against this virus. Stay safe everyone & always remember to think of your fellow community members that may be in need of sometime of assistance during these difficult times in and around our community.
