Council President Amanda Perrault stated, “Getting the youth engaged in our neighbourhood brings everyone together. Neighbourhoods are built when neighbours get to know each other.”

Moffat Makuto of the RMYC has invested countless hours into helping youth and helping build good neighbourhoods in Thunder Bay and across the region.

Moffat shares that “This is important. If there were sufficient funding, we could be doing so much more, not only in Limbrick but across Thunder Bay.”

The RMYC has been doing this kind of neighbourhood building since 1998.

The Vale Community Council consists of residents and helpers from the Limbrick neighbourhood.

NetNewsLedger congrats to the Vale Community Council, the neighbourhood youth, along with Moffat and the Regional Multicultural Youth Council.
