Things to Do – April 2015

Spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the birdies is?” ~ Winnie the Pooh

March roared both in and out like a lion, but it seems like temperatures are slowly on the climb, and lots of great events are “springing” up for April!

April is Autism Awareness Month, which our community is changing to Autism Understanding Month. We want to move beyond awareness to understanding, inclusion and belonging. We are kicking the month off by holding a Community Carnival to bring everyone together for some good ol’ carnival fun! Everyone is invited to enjoy art, face painting, DrumFit, juggling, sensory story-time, popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs and more! It’s Thursday, April 2nd at Creekside Church (660 Conservation Road Waterloo) from 5-7pm, and the cost is FREE! Need transportation? Contact Becky at or 519-886-9992

Rock for Autism with Ryan McTavish and FRED PENNER! This exciting concert will be held at 6:30pm April 10th at Bluevale Collegiate in Waterloo, with all proceeds going to EAFWR. Celebrate Autism Awareness Month with a show that will delight both adults and youth.ryan poster
