This recipe started in the Shamrock Centre Canteen a few years ago. It was made regularly and never lasted long. The recipe has since travelled to the Hamiota canteen, where they post it for the public because people keep asking for the recipe. And now, the recipe has travelled throughout the province and has been given Dietician approval. So enjoy! and don't feel guilty!

Anyone who would like to drop-in to a class is more than welcome to do so. There is a $10 drop in fee per person per class payable to the Municipality of Killarney-Recreation. Payment can be dropped off at the Recreation Office after hours by sliding underneath the door. Thank you.

The Heritage House & Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council
The Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council is a newly formed council interested in the promotion of visual and performing arts from a central hub in the Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain.
Killarney has recognized the need for an arts council for some time, which would implement a strategic plan to organize the arts and support those groups that are already in existence but working independently of each other. With no hub or centre that specifically focuses on the arts of the entire community, a void has been created.
Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council hopes to provide a place that nurtures creativity and where artists and all members of the community can come together to share ideas, share resources and advance the arts and culture in our community.
As the Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council moves forward, there is interest from the community to have a voice in the needs of arts in our community.
Please find below a short needs assessment survey. It will only take a few moments to complete and will help the Arts Council in the direction(s) they should take as the Heritage House Restoration/Rehabilitation takes form.
Thank you for taking the survey. Your input is important to the Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council.
