THUNDER BAY – The Vale Community Council brought the Limbrick Neighbourhood together Saturday night to celebrate the end of summer holidays with food, fun and dance.
With help from the Regional Multicultural Youth Council, John Susin from Superior Sounds offering a great mix of music and karaoke the youth got to end summer at the Vale Community Centre in style.
Dinner was tasty hotdogs, with fruit punch.
The young people enjoyed the freedom of playing in a safe place, and the structure of a well supervised event.
The Limbrick neighbourhood has a large number of young families, working with the Vale Community Council and the RMYC the groups are working together with residents to make a positive impact in the neighbourhood.
The barbecue and dance tonight were well attended by young families.
Vale Community Council President Amanda Perreault said, “Our goal is building a safe and fun community in Limbrick, and tonight we showed it can be done. Thanks to all the kids and parents who came out.”.
The dance was, for those old enough to remember just like those first dances at junior high school with the boys on one side of the room and the girls on the other. It is pretty amazing that no matter how much things seem to change, they actually often stay the same.
The goal was a fun and safe family event and tonight the Vale Community Council delivered on that promise with the full measure.
