At Jim Deva Plaza in West End, Vancouver
November 13 2018

"Puzzle Party" is an event where people get together, share puzzles, enhance their knowledge and have fun!

This year, we hosted the event in the beautiful Jim Deva Plaza of West End. This outdoor space is very active during the summer months and we were able to connect and engage with neighbours during this time.

We feel we provided a platform for improving the social skills and encouraged the cooperation among participants to complete the puzzles. They took turns and helped solve each other's problems!

The initial workshop at the Riley Park Community Garden was held in June, where a selection of gardeners and new Syrian settlers to the area attended. The basics of composting were explained to various interested people and the City’s composting leaflet was made available for gardeners to take away. Everyone enjoyed the Syrian-influenced lunch that followed.

This is the summary of our event on Sep,22. It went very well.

We had about 150 friends and family joined us including most Chinese families and a few Canadian husbands / wives. We had a very good time BBQ and handing out some prizes. Friends were introduced to each other and kids were making friends as well.

Thank you very much for supporting us to build the event, having opportunities to know more neighbors and make more friends.

500 Block of Kelly Street
October 31 2018

Though Halloween is classically meant to be eerie and dark, it is quite depressing when you live on a street that is deserted on Halloween. We moved into the 500 block on Kelly street 2 years ago and were very disappointed to have less then 10 trick or treaters come to our new home. This was just not acceptable. Having grown up in a bustling Halloween street, I remember the magic, sense of community and fun it had been just outside my door. From then on my mission was to revive the neighborhood.
But how?

Our goal was to get more people in our community connected and familiar with one another. After forming the first ever Block Watch community of over sixty families in our neighbourhood, we decided to plan a potluck lunch. A committee of 5 neighbours planned the event and there was an outreach to other neighbours for support with; poster making, organizing the food and inviting neighbours that didn't speak English.
