MHBPNA General Membership Meeting, Wed, Oct 28, 2009

Our Neighbourhood Association is holding an important General Membership Meeting. The date and location are:

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009
6:30 - 9:30
Room 109

We have a special guest attending: Architect John MacDonald who will be discussing how we can proceed with a cultural assessment grant that we won from the 2008 Festival of Neighbourhoods.

Please attend this meeting and encourage others who live in the neighbourhood to come as well. We have been working on a very basic constitution and we need your support to implement it. Over the years, our association has helped many people and groups to offer courses at the Breithaupt centre, run events and to meet with other helpful individuals. The NA also works with the City of Kitchener to publish a newsletter and to support events and programming. Creating a constitution is one way to ensure our organization is transparent, accountable and easy to understand.

An organizational chart of our current neighbourhood association can be found on this page. Our boundaries can be found here.


Kitchener’s Festival of Neighbourhoods Finale, Oct 25th

This BLOG is all about our great neighbourhood. Throughout the year we post articles about what is going on, various events etc. You can look through the BLOG's history to find what has happened over the past several months.

The city of Kitchener is celebrating the past year with their Festival of Neighbourhoods finale at city hall on Sunday, Oct 25th. This event was advertised in our newsletter and it is described on the city's website on this page.

The city of Kitchener says: "Come celebrate with us! The finale takes place rain or shine on Sunday, October 25, 2009 starting at 1:00 pm. in the Rotunda at Kitchener City Hall. Registered Kitchener neighbourhoods are encouraged to come, share their experiences, and take part in the activities and award ceremony."

Throughout the past year our neighbourhood (and many others) has registered our events with the city (e.g. Lippert Park picnic, Jane's Walk, Duke Street Playground pot luck). During the FON finale there will be a draw for a $10, 000 grant. Each event a neighbourhood registers gives them a ballot for this finale draw.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event. We'll post on this BLOG the 2009 winner of the grant.
