Our 4th annual BBQ and Potluck focused on reduce, reuse and recycle to make residents more aware of the extent of recycling. We also wanted to provide an activity for the children to keep them engaged and occupied. This year we had a paint on canvas project with the intention of displaying the finished pieces in our amenities room. Unfortunately, everyone wanted to keep their "works of art" so we were unable to display them. Although we did this with the children in mind, a lot of adults participated as well. It was a very well received project idea.
Our first year started very small but we continue to label this as a yearly event, more residents are coming out. This past year we had our largest gathering with over 200 attending. We were happy to see such a large turnout. The younger and older ones, sitting, chatting and laughing together -- as neighbours should.
