"I Love Canada concert” was a successful community event, with nearly 50 people participating in the event. Some parents also performed onstage with their children, and they developed the affection between their family in the course of the performance. The neighbourhoods have also enhanced their relationships, exchanged life skills , culture,and arts, and promoted the harmonious development of the community, this activity has also promoted the feelings of everyone to Canada!

Rain couldn't dampen the community spirit and amazing turnout at our Welcome Back Community BBQ at Lord Byng Elementary School on Thursday, September 20th (4-6 pm). Due to the weather, the event was moved inside the school gym and multi-purpose room with a record turnout of almost 500 parents, students, staff and volunteers who gathered to celebrate the start of the school year.
Table tennis for all! We had a great summer filled with neighbours who either learned to play or played competitively against each other in the shared common space of our back yard. It was an amazing way for some more introverted neighbours to become more engaged and for our "expert" players to share their knowledge with others. This summer also saw outside community members invited to play and share in the warmth of our community.
June 16: Glenbrooke Pie brought 70 neighbours together in a nearby park bearing fresh baked savoury and sweet pies. Kids played and some new and long time neighbours met and connected for the first time.
We have in recent years had an infestation of Garden Weevil Bugs - a real pest doing damage to leaves , roots & plants.
As we did not want to use toxic chemicals in our organic garden, we used a safe "Biological Control" of "Good Bugs to fight Bad Bugs".
With the help of NSG funding we were able to purchase the necessary
Microscopic worms - a natural enemy of our weevil pests.
We held a Garden Party at which we announced upcoming garden projects & the need for folks to volunteer their help.
We did get an enthusiastic response & all of our projects were completed through community teamwork.
A new path was laid by our team . After leveling the ground we added sand and then laid concrete pavers to create a permanent replacement for the formerly muddy path. Good job !
Our Yew Hedge which surrounds the garden was neatly clipped & we now have a permanent volunteer to co-ordinate future helpers with hedge maintenance.
