Thank you for your support! We held a block party for nearby residents and had over 100 attendees in attendance.
The inaugural mainblockparty held at 53rd and 54th initiated by Grace and Samuel Voo and supported by the Vancouver foundation was a great success! The event was energetic, creative and a showcase of the diverse community that lived in the neighborhood.
"We've lived here for 10 years. We built this house here, got married, and now we have three kids and we still don't know our neighbors," stated Grace, who won the Neighborhood Small Grant to host this event. She was inspired by a desire to create a safer community for her own family.
Car Free Day was a great success for us and THANK YOU children for making the banner and Dennis for his much needed help! A Special THANK YOU for all the donations: Vancouver Foundation, Vancouver Ecovillage, Sam and Jim at Gordon Neighbourhood House, Joe at No Frills, Safeway and London Drugs. Last but not least THANK YOU to all the volunteers for all their hard work and for making our day such a success!
We had an incredible neighbourhood street hockey tourney followed by a BBQ. Watch a cool 3 minute highlight video below, it's sure to make you smile. Great things are happening in our neighbourhood. Thanks Gordon Neighbourhood House, Vancouver Foundation, and good, good friends!
Car Free Day Vancouver: West End saw the WE Arts' Youth Art Jam, the beginning of a new mural, "What a Ride" by Steve "The Creative Individual" Hornung, and the birth of WE Arts as a local arts community group for Vancouver's glorious West End. King George students will design and paint stage two of the mural this fall semester as part of their art class, celebrating 100 years of King George Secondary.
