43rd and Quebec Street

It all started 5 years ago when Guilherme decided it was time he got to know his neighbours.  It had been years since there was a well advertised, and all inclusive block party.  For most of his life Guilherme hardly knew his neighbours.  Then one day he took it upon himself to get to know his neighbours.  He did so by going from house to house for a couple of square blocks and asking if anyone would be interested in having a Canada Day neighbourhood block party.  The overwhelming answer was yes, and the neighbourhood block parties on 43rd and Quebec St., took off.
