Community Potlucks

Hello neighbours,


After a month or two of organizing we finally have some dates & locations for beginning our neighbourhood potlucks.

Debbie Chapman has graciously offered to host a potluck once a month at her home, 45 Strange Street (the corner of Cherry & Strange St). Potlucks will occur on the following dates:

Wednesday, March 25th - cancelled due to Covid-19 - until fall


Except for this month all dates will be the fourth Wednesday of the month. If I remember correctly we said potlucks would go from 6-8 PM

In the future we hope to host two neighbourhood potlucks a month, one on the fourth Wednesday at Debbie's and another on a different night of the week and on a different week aimed especially at those who can't make it to the fourth Wednesday potluck.

Book your calendars and spread the word!

Corn Social - Labour Day - Thank you

We had a great day and turnout for Our annual Labour Day Corn Social on Sept 2nd at Gildner Green.  Thank you for all the volunteers who helped in any way with planning, getting supplies, setting up, husking corn, cooking and serving food, with games, the take down and the returning of equipment.  Without your work, we couldn't have had such a great event.
It was great to see so many people come out and spend time with their neighbours.

Cherry Festival 2020 - July 4 - CANCELLED

Due to Covid-19 and the demands to protect the health of everyone in our community, the 2020 Cherry Festival will be Cancelled.  

Capital Improvement Grant Proposals

In November at the Festival of Neighbourhoods, Cherry Park Neighbourhood Association won one of the Capital Improvement Grants of $20,000.

After extension consultation we voted at our AGM on March 13th, to go ahead with the Outdoor exercise equipment as our Capital Improvement Grant project.  It will be located along the Iron Horse Trail by Gildner Green Park.

We now need a project group to work with the City to bring this idea to completion.  If you would like to be on this group, please contact us as soon as possible.
