The Block Watch Party was for Solar West strata residents to socialize and sign up for Block Watch. Snacks (hot dogs, donuts, lemonade) were provided. The Vancouver Police motorcycle squad attended, a great draw for adults and children alike. People could get a free bike tuneup by one owner. Children could paint bird houses, colour, play games and then hit the pinata at the end (great fun!). Free seeds from Bees Matter had us set up an information table about bees, plants they like, and gardening - it was of great interest.

Thank you to you, the New Westminster Neighbourhood Small Grants program and the Vancouver Foundation for supporting us in our event this year. We held the Welcome Back BBQ on September 26 and we had a fantastic turn out! Thanks to donations from Save on Foods and Canadian Tire we were able to stretch the budget and served between 200-280 people at this free event. It was a lovely way for parents to meet the teachers informally and we received lots of great feedback about the event.
Holding a vegan tasting to showcase and try delicious food as a step towards better health, a positive environmental footprint and compassion for animals.
Glad to see such a great turnout at the first VegTasting event, made possible by the Neighbourhood Small Grants project through the South Vancouver Neighbourhood House. Thank you NSG!!!!
