On February 20th, 2024 MHBPNA had its first AGM in two or three years, but who is counting?
Thank you to the 16 community members who attended on Tuesday. We had several longtime members, many new to the organization and new to the neighbourhood, and also representatives from the City of Kitchener, the Lions Club and our City Councillor Stephanie Stretch.
Ted Parkinson (Communications) presented an overview of MHBPNA’s 40 year history and we discussed past events that attendees remembered. The discussion included Jane’s Walks, the celebration we planned for the re-opening of the Margaret Avenue Bridge, various Lantern Walks, Breithaupt Park camp outs, the soccer program and the Duke St. West Music Fest.
Emily Slofstra (Treasurer) discussed our current funds and our City of Kitchener representative, Shannon Thompson, mentioned some of the funding grants that are available from the city.
Everyone there talked about how they envisioned the MHBPNA going forward and most were interested in the idea of EVENTS. So we are looking at three or four events this coming year including:
–Earth Day cleanup
–Running event through Breithaupt Park
So this year looks pretty exciting. But we still want to hear from you! What are you looking for in your neighbourhood association? Do you want to get involved? When we work together, anything is possible.
