affects the entire family, they organize and fund day trips the whole family can enjoy
together. Some of the favourites are Wonderland, African Lion Safari, Disney on Ice,
Bingemans Big Splash, Niagara Go-Karting and Mini-Putt, a Fishing Derby, Safari
Niagara, SkyZone Trampoline Park, a family picnic, and a Christmas party.
