Our neighbourhood is a unique community described as a “small town feel”. We have a Facebook page so we can share events, problems, garage sales, babysitting info, or anything else. Many of us know each other through our kids, our dogs, the Community School, or just through walking/biking the neighbourhood. So i wanted to hold an event to celebrate our friendships and create new relationships. My block is even more unique than our neighbourhood, however, because along with the 35-40 residents living on our block, we also have a Mosque and a Buddhist Temple! That’s why i love to hold events on our block so that people can share these diverse cultures and we can all learn more about each other. This year’s neighbourhood party did just that. As you will see in the photos, it was attended by all cultures, religions, and ages. Everybody mingled and learned something new. We had about 12 information booths as well to provide relevant news and info to the residents. North Shore Safety Council, Parks, CN Police, North Shore Neighbourhood House, Shift Dance, and Sunny Kim Tae Kwon Do were among the groups that attended. It was a fantastic gathering!
Neighbourhood Small Grants
We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.More by this author
