If you are like me, you wait until after Remembrance Day to do any Christmas decorating – so needless to say on November 13th the outdoor Christmas lights together with decorations made their appearance on my home.
As a challenge to brighten up the Glenelm neighbourhood, we at GeNA are excited to announce a fun and friendly “Light Up the Neighbourhood” contest, with the prizes being:
- Bragging rights to having the brightest block
- Publicity and pictures of the winning block in the January issue of Glenelm Community News
- A lovely sign highlighting the block with the most (or most impressive) Christmas lights decoratively put up!
Details will soon be released on how to vote for your favourite festively lit block. So – take advantage of any lovely day these next few weeks, conspire with your neighbours and let’s light up Glenelm!

The soapmaking workshop that GeNA hosted last month was such a success that we’ve organized another one just in time for the holidays. On Saturday, November 25th at 1pm, come and learn how to create beautiful handmade cards! Card-maker and scrap-booker extraordinaire Kristyne Hallmuth will walk us through five different sets of Christmas and holiday-themed cards. Participants will leave with 10 cards and envelopes.
The cost of the workshop is $30 to cover materials and instructor costs, and advance registration and payment are required to hold your spot. To register and arrange payment (by cash, cheque or e-transfer), please email Mellanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that registration is limited to 20 participants.
GeNA thanks Gordon King Memorial United Church for providing space for the workshop!
