NEIGHBOURHOOD BLOCK PARTYThe Town of St Paul FCSS is working to build communities one block at a time. Through the Neighbourhood Block Party Program, individuals, on behalf of their neighbourhood can apply for funding of up to $150.00 per year to conduct activities designated in their neighbourhood.
There seems to be a growing that relationships in many neighbourhoods are becoming less personal than they were years ago. This could be from families becoming more transient, children becoming more involved in activities away from the home, and an increase in both parents working. A Neighbourhood Block Party is a great way to improve connections or reconnect with our neighbours. Block Parties area great way for neighbours to share an evening of fun, food and entertainment. Remember that as friendships grow, so do safe and caring neighbourhoods.
