Come join us at Breithaupt Park on August 27th for the 'Big Breithaupt Campout'! Bring your own picnic dinner, a tent, and some marshmallows for the camp fire as well.
The fun will start at 6pm. We have arranged that the splash pad will stay open later than usual.
It has been almost a year and we are working on getting our second annual MHBPNA soapbox derby race ready to go!
If you missed the last one, it was held at the end of the summer on the Louisa Street hill, just off Margaret Ave. We had four, enthusiastic racers. We ran several test runs, test races and a couple heats. A winner was crowned before noon. Good times were had by all!
This year we are doing things mostly the same -- cart specs are the same, registration process it the same, rules are mostly the same. The big change is that we are going to use a different hill. More details once everything is confirmed. The race will be held on August 20th, 2016.
As we wind our way towards the promised land of summer we should remember the terrible beauty of our 'mini-icestorm' of a couple of weeks ago. Certainly it was not as brutal as a few years ago but some trees did lose branches. One thing that always occurs after the worst subsides is that our neighbourhood fills up with photographers hitting the streets.
Thanks to all who came out to our AGM on
Saturday October 3rd.
Good things are being done in our hood!
