Highlights from GeNA’s “Come Meet Your Neighbour” Picnic 

Close to 200 people came out to meet new neighbours and connect with old ones at GeNA’s first-ever community picnic on Sunday, September 10th. The weather cooperated perfectly for us at Elmwood (Roxy) Park and we enjoyed a memorable afternoon of games, live music, desserts, and conversation.

Thank you to all who helped make the event possible and to everyone who came out to celebrate with the community! Here are just a few photos from the day; we welcome your photo submissions to add to the website.

For those who have asked: yes! We are planning to do it again next year. Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 9th, 2018.

Welcome to Glenelm, Lime & Pine Hair.Spa & AJ’s Collectibles and More

A warm Glenelm welcome to two new businesses that recently opened on Henderson between Noble and Cobourg: Lime & Pine Hair.Spa at 228 Henderson and AJ’s Collectibles and More at 220 Henderson.

There was an article about Lime & Pine in the Canstar Herald a few weeks back — some of you may recall that before this building was home to its previous occupant, Liberty Tax, it was actually the Kelvin Beauty Shop for many decades. And, if you haven’t noticed the fun artwork painted on back of the AJ’s Collectibles building, be sure to go take a look at the “super” job they have done. There’s an article on AJ’s in the Herald this week too.
