What’s Happening at the Evergreen Centre?

While in-person activities have been on hold, the City of Guelph has been using the opportunity to make many updates and improvements at the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre.

Please note that dining room service is not yet operating, and preorder and take-out meals are temporarily not available. We are in a state of transition for a while.

Many are patiently looking forward to our return to the site, and it is refreshing to share some great news of what has been happening in the facility.

We thought you’d like to know!
