500 Block of Kelly Street

Though Halloween is classically meant to be eerie and dark, it is quite depressing when you live on a street that is deserted on Halloween. We moved into the 500 block on Kelly street 2 years ago and were very disappointed to have less then 10 trick or treaters come to our new home. This was just not acceptable. Having grown up in a bustling Halloween street, I remember the magic, sense of community and fun it had been just outside my door. From then on my mission was to revive the neighborhood.
But how?

Our goal was to get more people in our community connected and familiar with one another. After forming the first ever Block Watch community of over sixty families in our neighbourhood, we decided to plan a potluck lunch. A committee of 5 neighbours planned the event and there was an outreach to other neighbours for support with; poster making, organizing the food and inviting neighbours that didn't speak English.
