The City of Beaconsfield is working closely with the provincial health authorities regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it had decided to close, on March 13, 2020, municipal facilities offering activities to the public, in order to respond to the risks of potential infections in our region.

Following a survey with members and friends, the Board of Directors of SHBBHS has decided to resume its lectures as of October 2020 but in virtual mode.

Check our website regularly as some last minute changes are possible.

Until further notice, the lectures will be in virtual mode and available free for everyone.
