Okanagan Falls, B.C.

On November 13th we hosted a mural party in Ok Falls. Our idea was to create two large plywood murals with the theme of, “What does community means to you?” and put them up in a public place for all residents and visitors to see. We set up up the boards so everybody could work on the mural at the same time. We offered organic food and live music and about 35 to 40 people attended this event. We had generous donations by Rona for the plywood, some paint and KJ Coffee Bar supplied organic coffee. We also had lots of support from Kim English and the staff at the RDOS.

Oliver B.C.

On Sunday Oct 23, neighbours residing on 6 different streets that form a big block in the Wolf Creek area of Oliver met for the first Block Party held in the area in over 20 years. Invitations were distributed 2 weeks prior to the event. People brought food items to share and donations to the local food bank, plus enjoyed hot fresh popcorn, hot chocolate and coffee and other snacks provided through the Neighbourhood Small Grant. Children and youth played hockey and other games together on the street and even were invited to check out each others backyards.

Burnaby 8 Rinks / Canlan Ice Sports

I hosted a party to bring in the New Year and celebrate Canada's 150th birthday on Dec 31st from 11am - 1:30pm at Burnaby 8 Rinks (Canlan).

We had over 100 people attend, with approximately 70 people on the ice. We had 50+ kids skating and roughly 30 adults. We had some people playing hockey while others simply enjoyed the skating and socializing.

We had quite a few people in Red and White or Canada clothing as well.

We played some games and had food and drinks.

We topped it off by singing Oh Canada and wishing Canada a Happy Birthday!!
