NEIGHBOURHOOD BLOCK PARTY:
The 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.
In more recent years there has been a trend that relationships in many neighbourhoods are becoming less personal than they were years before. 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.

- Once your Block Party has been approved by our office be sure to stop by and pick up Block Party Door-Hangers to notify neighbours of your event as well!
