Mitchell Elementary School

The Canada 150 event was aimed at encouraging kids to engage with their grandparents and share their stories. All the kids and their grand parents were then invited to a grand celebration event which was attended by over 100 individuals from all age groups and ethnic backgrounds from around the Mitchell community.

The highlight of the event was a cultural performance by the "Sister Clan". It was a tribute to our roots. The lead singer and Mother of the five beautiful daughters, invited 20 random kids on stage and involved them in a first nations game. It was all fun!

Camden Place, Richmond

We held a neighborhood event On Sunday, July 9th with the help of all of our neighborhood friends. It was an opportunity to meet the new family who moved in to our community and re-connect with our other neighbors since we haven't had a chance to meet due to raising our families. We held a BBQ event and the weather was awsome. Thank you for this opportunity. We had over 30 people showed up for our event.

This was the first event of a two part project to build new relationships among neighbourhood residents as well as providing opportunities for participants to learn from each other. Approximately 45 people turned out on July 18 to learn how to play pickle ball, bocce ball and croquet. Everyone brought either a salad or dessert and their own plates/cutlery and the Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen was used to provide beef on a bun and roasted potatoes along with iced tea and lemonade.
