Café and Community Terrace

The CTS Café and its gracious Community Terrace overlooking the canal and river provide the perfect venue for food and fellowship. After 50 years, however, the Café and Terrace at CTS both require significant restoration to return to the warm, graceful hospitality for which they were originally designed: to provide destinations for play, fellowship, and reflection.
