THUNDER BAY – The Vale Community Council celebrated spring Saturday with a very successful and fun dance. Young people from the Limbrick neighbourhood were lined up at the door waiting to get in as VCC President Amanda Perreault opened the door and greeted the young people.

The saying is “It takes a community to raise a child”. In the Limbrick neighbourhood, perhaps it takes that and more. For the Regional Multicultural Youth Council, and the Vale Community Council support from many places are starting to come together to make a difference in the neighbourhood.

The youth have a big role in making a difference. Over the past week, the VCC youth have been out doing community clean ups in the city. The clean up scheduled for Saturday in Limbrick had to be postponed due to fresh snow in the morning. It is also likely it will take more strong hands and help for the youth to make their own neighbourhood cleaner. Winter has left a pretty big mess in Limbrick.

The music ‘Thundered’ through the Vale Community Centre under the careful supervision of Thunder Perreault. The young people enjoyed the dancing, the food, the snacks, and the special candy bags prepared by the Easter Bunny.

Making the Limbrick neighbourhood a safer and more engaging place for all the residents starts with action.

Vale Community Council President Amanda Perreault stated, “Our Easter Dance was phenomenal. I loved the parents who came out with their children, who came over telling me concerns, sharing ideas for future dances, and giving me the encouragement to move on more time to get space and expand on our activities in Limbrick/Vale Area. The volunteers were amazing”.
