neighbourhood_forumTo follow-up on the successful Jim Diers workshop from last year, the Neighbourhood Champions (with support of the MR/PM Parks and Leisure service) is holding a seminar on May 25, 2013. There will be a guest speaker (Joe Roberts, the Skid Row CEO”) and workshops on how to start a neighbourhood, how to connect and communicate, how to organize events and how to make neighbourhoods safe.

It’s free and everyone in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and the Katzie First Nation is welcome.

We will have display tables with information about local community groups around the main conference area. If your group would like to put up a display, let me know. You don’t need to be there at your display – the idea is that people will wander around and look at displays during lunch and breaks. If you aren’t attending, you can drop your display materials off with me before the event and I’ll set them up for you. Please pass this along to any community groups who you think might be interested.

Hope to see you there!

  1. […] had a great seminar today on Neighbourhood Building (if I do say so […]

  2. Sorry I wasn’t able to make it to the workshop yesterday. I had an event of my own on the bandstand for the whole day. However, I do want people in every neighbourhood – even if you’re not quite sure you *are* an official neighbourhood – to know that the Maple Ridge Museum & Community Archives shares your enthusiasm for community building and will put whatever resources we have for you at your disposal. Feel free to contact us any time.
