RASC, Halifax Centre Meetings

Meetings of Halifax Centre are from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM on the FIRST SATURDAY of the month (except July and August). There may be exceptions if the date falls on a holiday weekend.

In lieu of face-to-face meetings, we now host Members' Meetings using Zoom; however, we are hoping we can gather once more at the Saint Mary's University site. Stay tuned!
