Fun and Family in February

            

The Rose City Curling Club was the place to be for Family Day on February 17th! A solid mix of curlers and non-curlers filled the rink to enjoy a free, fun-filled afternoon of curling with family and friends. Thanks to everyone for coming out and especially to the organizers and contributors of the cookies and refreshments after the curling. We hope to see you back for another curling event in the future!
