On November 19th, the Qayqayt school community was invited to attend a Community-Building event at the school to celebrate the diverse cultures of Qayqayt and the recent installation of our Phase 1 play structure (not yet open).

 The event included screening of short films in English and French, and free food (including sushi, stir fry, samosas, pakoras, pizza, fruit, and dessert).  Approximately 100 people attended and a good time was had by all!

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House

This was the second year The Food Connection received a Neighbourhood Small Grant, and we couldn't be happier with how much we learned and shared with the community! The Food Connection is an ongoing project, and it's essentially a community of food-loving folks that meet for monthly potlucks and free food workshops at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House.

Lakewood Drive

We started with a centennial celebration a few years ago which was such a success that everyone wanted this to become an annual gathering. The block party brings together neighbours from surrounding blocks - young and old, of many different backgrounds. The closing of the street creates such an amazing open space for people to gather, sit and chat, kids playing freely, riding bikes and playing games we've made over the years.

Thanks to the grant, we can keep this event going - thank you!

Bring on the tissue paper, balloons,string, scissors,markers, LED lights, wire, coloured tape and lotsa lotsa glue! Presto- an original handmade lantern. The neighbourhood was invited, and the neighbourhood showed up!
