Did you know...?

Welcome! This is a section designed to help keep you "In The Know". It's about ongoings in our region which do not necessarily directly relate, or apply to, the other categories of Forest Heights' website (for example, not to: Calendar or News, To Our Good Health, etc. sections). Also, do check out our Facebook account on our homepage!

See new information and opportunities posted as they become available. Our goal is to the best Community we can be!
