Dear Neighbourhood Small Grants and The Vancouver Foundation,
I was a recipient of a $400.00 grant to help host a BBQ for the tenants of Maclean Park Housing. We completed our event on Thursday August 8th, 2013. We hosted approximately 280 tenants from 4pm to 7pm. There was a fabulous mix of children, adults and seniors. I have attached a few pictures for you to see.
It was a nice sunny day so everyone was in good spirits! The property manager, community developer and a local cop came out too; Wes also came out to mingle with the tenants. We served hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, watermelon, chips and a wagon wheel. We had a raffle of gift cards for the adults and some amazing face painting, air brush tattoos and balloon twisting for the kids! Some adults participated too and got matching family tattoos!
All in all it was a fabulous night of the community coming out meeting up with new and old friends, children on their bikes and seniors mingling with everyone. Thank you again for helping me make this possible with your financial contribution,
