Dockside - Coal Harbour

As the opportunities to meet the foreigners of our building were rare, we prepared cooking meetings in order to be attractive.
The meetings were really good, with the help of Small grants we had success during the barbecues sharing the knowledge of Vancouver history and culture. Curiosities about the neighbors name, as Coal Harbor or Gastown for example. Local or old residents are proud of telling their history as well the newcomers are curious to learn.
The group is still small, but we can say now we have friends in neighborhood.

Club House

We had four events in October and November, targetting different age groups from elementary school, high school, and the transition to adulthood. I invited a professional speaker to talk about important topics for each group. Parents got to know each other and made friends. Some parents shared their experiences, so new-diagnosis families can have some guidelines without wasting too much energy and time. It’s good to know we have so many similar situations in this community and that we can find empowering solidarity.

105th Avenue, Maple Ridge

The 104th Avenue Neighbours had a great day/ evening of Christmas light hanging and pot luck bbq on Nov 24th. The weather was pouring in the morning but cleared up as the day pasted into the evening, so approx 45 + neighbours attended. There were many volunteers that helped organize the Christmas lights install, the coordination of the food, the tents, food tables, and etc. We met the new neighbours families and there seemed to be many new dogs. So others brought their dogs to visit with everyone. They discussed block watch and future neighbourhood get togethers.
