The GeNA core organizing committee has decided to postpone the garage sale/bake sale that was planned for September 9th. Our group of volunteers is learning as we go, and we realized with the community picnic the same weekend, it was more than we could realistically manage. We are now planning to do the garage sale/bake sale in the spring, possibly integrating some opportunities for local businesses as well.
To anyone who had been holding onto items to donate, we offer our sincere thanks for your generosity, and our apologies for the inconvenience of our plans changing. If you aren’t willing or able to hold onto your sale items until spring, we suggest the Kildonan MCC at 445 Chalmers as a great place to donate to. They accept donations Monday-Saturday from 9:30am-5pm.
Thanks for bearing with us, and for your support of GeNA!

Have you ever wondered what the heck all the green stuff is that grows in our back lanes? Have you ever thought to yourself, Maybe I can eat/drink/use this stuff in some way? Well, your curiosity is about to be satisfied. GeNA has invited noted local film maker and edible weed enthusiast Joel Penner to Glenelm this Thursday, August 17th at 6:30 to conduct a tour through our own back yards to show us what we have growing here and how it can be used.
We will meet at Gordon-King United Church at 6ish. GeNA is requesting a $5 contribution to help us thank Joel for his time and expertise.
Please RSVP to Mellanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
