Our annual block party continues to be an opportunity for intergenerational connections and relationship building. Our strata comes together each fall to celebrate the back-to-school season and connect children who may not have met one another that are new to the neighbourhood. Our strata management company provides all the food and beverages for the afternoon, and our grant funds go towards the costs of bouncy castle rentals. The whole neighbourhood pitches in to decorate, set up games, crafts and sporting equipment as well as pick up, set up and supervise the bouncy castles. Each year we choose a new theme for the party. This year our theme was pollinator gardens and we connected with border free bees to source information for our community in which plants were most pollinator friendly. A fun time was had by all! A big thanks to the NSG for the chance to bring neighbours together and build community relationships.
