GeNA’s core organizers are working on planning these events (and others that are still top secret!). Are you interested in volunteering or delivering flyers? We always need extra hands. Please get in touch!
Glenelm Family Bike Jam to the Forks – Sunday afternoon, June 23rd. We are finalizing details and will share very soon!
Movie Night in Roxy Park — Saturday, August 24th. We’re bringing back the giant 29-foot screen for a fun & free family movie night.
Community Picnic in the Park — Sunday, September 8th. Come meet neighbours old and new… this is GeNA’s biggest event of the year and we can’t wait!
The 18th annual Happy Days on Henderson takes place this Saturday, June 8th. It’ll be a day of free, family-friendly fun. GeNA will be there at our community table and giving out free “I Tree Glenelm” stickers. Hope to see you there!
At long last, we have some positive news to share about the vacant former gas station site at the corner of Henderson and Johnson!
The Friends of 243 Henderson Working Group, which was formed thanks to leadership by Chalmers Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation and includes representatives from GeNA, invites everyone to attend an Open House to provide feedback on a proposed plan to revitalize this site.
GeNA’s Tree Committee is positively thrilled to announce that plans are well underway to replant a significant number of missing boulevard trees in Glenelm this summer! More details will be shared soon.
GeNA is excited to announce we’ll be hosting a plant and seed swap for the third time this spring. Our Sweets & Seeds event will be back again in late May, where green thumbs will have a chance to share seeds, plants, gardening knowledge and each other’s company. So, if you’re starting seeds indoors in the coming months, why not plant some extras to share with your neighbours?
Soon it will be Glenelm’s turn to show off our winter spirit and creativity! We are excited to bring back a neighbourhood Snow Sculpture Challenge for a second year. Based on feedback from last year’s participants we’ve made some changes to the format – namely, more prizes for participation!
Judging and photography will take place on Saturday, February 2nd beginning at 2pm — so make sure you’ve built your sculpture and registered your address by then!
Visit www.glenelm.ca/snow to learn more and to sign up for free. You can also see this great article CBC did about last year’s challenge here.
Here’s a peek at some of our generous sponsors – big thanks to them! If you’re a local business who would like to support this event through a donation of prizes or financial support, we’d love to hear from you at glenelmcommunity [at] gmail.com.
