In response to the provincial government moving to Step 2 under "The Path Forward" plan, the JCC is currently reviewing these guidelines and communicating with our network of recreation centre colleagues regarding the re-opening of any onsite fitness programming. Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our staff, members, volunteers, and community. We will keep you updated with the details of our re-opening plan.
Effective February 8, we are offering pre-booked, in-person, one-on-one and one-on-one household personal training and swimming lessons. We continue to provide virtual programming for those individuals and families with an active JCC membership.  Learn more...

Party Snack Mix

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so with Father’s Day on the horizon, we’re here to give you a small boost! This Party Snack Mix recipe is easy to make with the kids as a gift to celebrate dad. You can store your mix in an airtight container for up to three days, if it lasts that long!


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 16 Servings



  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1¼ teaspoons seasoned salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2½ cups Wheat Chex square cereal
  • 2½ cups Rice Chex square cereal
  • 1½ cups nuts (peanuts, pecans, or cashews)
  • 1½ cups small pretzel sticks



  1. Gather the ingredients and preheat oven to 275°F.
  2. Melt the butter in a shallow pan over low heat. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, and garlic salt. Don’t use garlic powder as it changes the flavour profile and would be too strong.
  3. Combine the Wheat Chex, Rice Chex, nuts, and pretzel sticks in a large bowl and drizzle with the butter mixture. Carefully mix with a wooden spoon to avoid breaking the pretzels and cereal squares. Evenly coat all the pieces with the seasoned butter mixture.
  4. Place the mix in a shallow baking pan with sides. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes so to evenly toast the mixture.
  5. Cool for at least 15 minutes and enjoy!
