For promoting my project, I designed a poster and had posters up in Judy Darcy's office, BC housing seniors house, Royal City Centre and Seniors Services Society. On Friday June 27, I rented out the picnic shelter in Lower Hume Park and invited all the seniors in New Westminster to come for BBQ and Bingo in the park. We provided free hotdogs, burgers, salads, fruits, coffee teas and water for everyone. We also had MLA Judy Darcy sponsored us with a cake.

What a wonderful 8 days in our neighbourhood! We began our project Monday, with kids from ages 3-18 years making painted butterflies with mini-flashlight tails, to be used as decorations in our final performance. Classical Indian dance moves were taught to the group next by local teen dancers Simran and Rachelle. All the teens were wonderful mentors to the younger fry all week. The last hour of each day was reserved for rehearsals of the edited script of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

June 14 2014 to August 23 2014
With a separate small grant from the one received for the spring garden cleanup, volunteers from DIGS (the Downtown Intercultural Gardeners' Society) have hosted a series of summer socials over June, July, and August. The socials are held in the garden, are potluck style, and sometimes include special workshops such as one on bee-keeping. What a great way to build community!
