KCDS started in October 1988 at the Saint Joseph's Hall. Where - if there was a celebration of life - we didn't wear our tap shoes so we were quite. To the left a KCDS add from 1991 - we were in our 3rd year and had added the Boy Scout Hall on Marigold Avenue, the Hall above the library on Esquimalt Road and The All Saints United Church.
