PAL Theatre
November 30 2018

Every Monday evening we have a drop-in table tennis event where anyone can come and learn to play table tennis. During the rest of the week we have various people playing their own organized games.

As the theatre is used quite often in the wider community, people are aware that a table tennis table and equipment is available so it has made an appearance at parties hosted in the theatre, and recreational time during event set up and events.

Club House
November 29 2018

We had four events in October and November, targetting different age groups from elementary school, high school, and the transition to adulthood. I invited a professional speaker to talk about important topics for each group. Parents got to know each other and made friends. Some parents shared their experiences, so new-diagnosis families can have some guidelines without wasting too much energy and time. It’s good to know we have so many similar situations in this community and that we can find empowering solidarity.

The 104th Avenue Neighbours had a great day/ evening of Christmas light hanging and pot luck bbq on Nov 24th. The weather was pouring in the morning but cleared up as the day pasted into the evening, so approx 45 + neighbours attended. There were many volunteers that helped organize the Christmas lights install, the coordination of the food, the tents, food tables, and etc. We met the new neighbours families and there seemed to be many new dogs. So others brought their dogs to visit with everyone. They discussed block watch and future neighbourhood get togethers.
