We’re very excited to open our 2022-23 season on Tuesday September 20th with a new menu, several new ensembles as well as many of our favourites. Unless the government reinstates Covid protocols, the wearing of masks is recommended however not mandated at First United. Pre-registration is no longer required as well.

Special thanks to Jean Hoffmann who has sourced out a new dessert supplier since Costco is not offering the boxes of squares that we’ve enjoyed in the past. Our team of volunteers will be up and running so please give them a special thank you when you visit.

Remember to order your lunch requests by NOON every Friday at firstunitedconcerts@gmail.com

Free Noon Hour Concerts will resume on Tuesdays starting Tuesday September 20th from 12:15 - 12:45.  Lunches will also be available from 11:30. Hope to see you then!
