Thank you to the fantastic team at the North Burnaby Neighbourhood House!

We were selected for a Neighbourhood Small Grant Project and we had an excellent Block Party on Canada Day, July 1st, 2014.  Check out our video:

The party was in N. Burnaby in the Heights and was held on 4000 Cambridge. In addition to our block, we had family and other neighbours from the Heights join us for some fun and of course, food!!!

3000 block East 59th Avenue

After a morning of showers, the sun came out just in time for our annual Block Watch Party. Sixty-five neighbours – young and old — from the streets around the 3000 block of East 59th in Vancouver gathered to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. After the brief Block Watch Annual General Meeting, everyone enjoyed a range of food items. One family brought boxes of fresh tomatoes for everyone to share.

main between 53rd and 54th - south vancouver

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.
