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.

Family fun was the goal and based on the number of smiles the school year is off to a great start.
