This workshop will be held at 1 Scott Street on February 13th from 7pm to 10pm. It’s a class designed to help lift spirits on February 14th and all year round. This event may be helpful for seniors who are feeling lonely and isolated, as it will focus on building self-worth and self-love.
3. Art and Wine with Your Valentine

4. Valentine’s Day Food Nook Tour
This two-hour guided walking tour through Roncesvalles will start in front of the Starbucks at 2201 Dundas Street West on February 12th at 2:30pm.
