Each year, Turning Leaf hosts an annual assembly to review our year and look ahead to the new year. On Thursday, March 9, we hosted our 2017 Annual Assembly at The Caboto Centre where we celebrated our accomplishments as an organization and honoured our staff for their years of service and their outstanding performances.
We would like to thank the staff at The Caboto Centre for a fabulous meal and excellent service! We look forward to hosting more events at their beautiful venue in the future! (And eating more of their home-made pasta and meatballs)!
