ALEX HOUSE: Longhouse makeover weekend almost here

"Longhouse Extreme Makeover" to take place Oct. 18-20

We’re just weeks away from our upcoming Longhouse Extreme Makeover, Oct. 18-20.

This initiative has truly been a volunteer-driven activity, with Investors Group leading the way.

We have commitments from many donors, sponsors in-kind, volunteers, tradespeople and suppliers who are – and will be – supporting our makeover beyond what we could have imagined.

But more is needed. If you are a tradesperson willing to get involved, please consider volunteering. If you own a business or are connected to a supplier, please consider how you might help.

And, of course, volunteers are still needed both before and during the makeover weekend.

Call 604-535-0015 for information.

In co-operation with Crescent Housing Society, Crescent Park Elementary and Can You Dig It, Alex House will host a neighbourhood meeting tonight (Thursday) in the rec room at Kiwanis Park Place, 12882 26h Ave., 7-9 p.m, to discuss the creation of a community garden at 128 Street and 25 Avenue.

Everyone is welcome.

For information, call 604-535-0015 ext 236.

The toddler years are a time of exciting growth and learning, but they can also be challenging.

Positively Parenting Your toddler is an interactive group for parents of children ages eight months to three years that addresses many of the issues parents face.

The next group runs 6:30-8:30 p.m., starting tonight Thursday) until Nov.18 at Kensington Prairie Community Centre.

For information, call 604-538-5060, ext. 24.

Join your neighbours to celebrate community at our scrumptious three-course lunches the second Wednesday of each month from noon until 2 p.m.

Next week (Oct. 9), we’re celebrating Thanksgiving with baked glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, breaded carrots and green beans and, of course, pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

Register by Friday, Oct. 4 at 604-535-0015 ext 236. Rides are available – let us know in advance.

Cost is $8 members, $10 non-members.
