Dear Centremount Neighbourhood Association Members,
We hope you have been enjoying the wonderful summer weather we have been experiencing this year!
The Centremount Neighbourhood Association thanks you for your commitment as Members and would like to provide you with an update on our past and future initiatives.
On Saturday July 2nd, we held the Centremount Community Garage Sale. Residents were invited to host their own garage sales at their homes and contact the CNA to have their address included in local advertising for the sale via flyers, social media and a Kijiji advertisement. 11 addresses participated in the sale and reported an excellent turnout from garage sale shoppers!
Our first neighbourhood event was the Centremount Block Party held on Saturday July 16th at Bruce Park. It was such a fun day filled with tons of free activities including a huge Slip n’ Slide, face painting, photo booth, yoga and live music from neighbourhood band Cannery Lane. We had a great turnout from about 200 residents and look forward to hosting the event again next year with some new surprises!
The committee and board members have been meeting on a monthly basis to discuss future events and initiatives. We are excited to share with you that we have tentatively scheduled three annual community events:
- Winter-themed Festival;
- Summer – Centremount Block Party;
- Fall – Movie in the Park Night.
We would love to hear from our Members and invite you to attend the first Centremount Neighbourhood Association Members meeting on Wednesday October 26, 2016 at 7:00pm at Finch Espresso Bar (601 Upper James St, Hamilton, ON L9C 2Y7).
During the meeting, we will discuss these proposed community events, provide an update on a potential neighbourhood splash pad, and open the floor to your ideas/suggestions. Councillor Donna Skelly will also be present to provide a ward update and answer questions.
We look forward to meeting with you!
Centremount Neighbourhood Association
