2nd Annual Glenelm Spring Cleanup

On Saturday, April 21st, GeNA will be hosting our 2nd Annual Glenelm Spring Cleanup!  As we did last year, we’re focusing on removing all the litter that has accumulated in our back lanes over the winter.

Please come out and help make Glenelm a little cleaner and tidier! Meet us as Gordon King Memorial United Church at 1pm, Saturday, April 21st. We’ll provide bags, gloves, pickers, and some light snacks – just bring your energy. We’ll also go over some safety instructions before heading out.

It’s not a glamourous job, but it makes a big difference in our neighbourhood, and is a great way to celebrate Earth Day with your neighbours. We hope to see lots of new faces out there!

In the event of rain or poor weather, we’ll move the cleanup to April 28th, and this information will be communicated via the email list and at http://www.glenelm.ca/cleanup/.

Sam’s Place Has Re-Opened!

Congratulations to our friends at Sam’s Place, which recently reopened after major renovations. Stop by and try out their new menu, catch some great live music, or pick up a few new-to-you books to read soon.

What makes Sam’s Place — an activity of MCC Manitoba — such a special spot? According to their website, “The youth who volunteer at Sam’s Place face some big barriers to employment, but in our kitchen, they find the mentorship, community and support they need to acquire meaningful employment.”

Sam’s Place is located at 159 Henderson Hwy. Hours: Tuesday and Wednesday: 10am – 4pm, Thursday: 10am – 9pm, Friday and Saturday: 10am – 10pm, Sunday and Monday: CLOSED.
