Another Newsletter is being written and published

We are in the process of writing and publishing another neighborhood newsletter. This is all volunteer written and delivered and we usually print about 2500 copies. The city of Kitchener prints them for us as part of their commitment to Neighbourhood Associations. We have more than 5,000 people living in the MHBP neighbourhood but we can only print what we can deliver. 

Can you help us deliver? If you can do your block or street please email us at mhbpna@gmail.com. We hope to begin delivering the newsletter the first week in September. 

Be sure and check out our fall programs in the City of Kitchener's Leisure Magazine!
