You voted and the winning movie is the new live-action Aladdin!
On Saturday, August 24th, bring your lawn chairs, blankets, bug spray and of course, your family, friends and neighbours, and come enjoy a free outdoor movie and popcorn at Elmwood (Roxy) Park! The movie will begin at sunset, which is around 8:30pm. More info here.
Family Movie in the Park is made possible through generous support from an Assiniboine Credit Union community sponsorship, a City of Winnipeg per capita grant, help from the Chalmers Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation… and neighbours like you!
Back for a second summer, the Exchange District BIZ is organizing group rides from different places in the city to the Exchange on First Fridays. This coming Friday, July 5th, the ride begins in northeast Winnipeg at Fraser’s Grove Park, and includes a meeting point at MBCI, just across Henderson from Elmwood Cemetery.
“Our guides take you on a leisurely ride into the Exchange District for First Fridays – where you can enjoy our outdoor Alleyways Market, art studios, shops open late, and an array of watering holes and eateries! The route is safe, fun, and offers meet up points along the way.”
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!

At long last, we have some positive news to share about the vacant former gas station site at the corner of Henderson and Johnson!

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?
