Family-style fun for young parents

Family Place is reaching out to young families in Aldergrove with a “young parent movie night"

Family Place is reaching out to young families in Aldergrove with something new this month: a “young parent movie night for pregnant or parenting youth aged 25 or under.”

The first movie night is set for Thursday, Feb. 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Family Place, in the Shortreed schoolgrounds at 27330 – 28 Ave. The featured movie will be Friends With Benefits, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.

Like all Family Place events, it is free of charge, and if desired, free child-minding is also provided at the facility (call Kelly Quinlan at 604-308-7043 to reserve childcare that evening). There will also be popcorn, pop and door prizes, along with the chance to socialize with other young parents, children and Family Place staff.

Family Place is an initiative of Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services.
