Family Fun Day
This is an annual event hosted for ADF families by NECANA. Each year we choose a theme and
provide rides, entertainment, activities, show bags, morning tea & lunch and lucky door prizes.
There is absolutely NO cost to ADF families for this event. It gives our ADF families a great, fun
day out and the opportunity to catch up with others.
