After the disappointing postponement due to rain, our community was treated to an evening of glorious weather and an outstanding turnout at the Annual CGYHA Street Party. Our volunteer chefs, Adam MacArthur and Gareth Mercer, served up hamburgers and hotdogs to over 150 neighbours, along with fresh corn, watermelon, drinks and chips. This year’s hosts, Jimmy, Sunny and Ben Kim, created a safe area on their driveway for the our youngest neighbours. Kids enjoyed a tattoo station, ring toss, bean bag toss and a water balloon race while neighbours welcomed those new to our community, met some new friends and caught up with old ones.

Thank you to Robinson’s Your Independent Grocer and Miller’s Farm and Market who donated the food and refreshments. Special thanks goes to all of our neighbours who volunteered their time and resources and to our Events Director, Darlene Mercer, who coordinated everything to make it happen!!!!
