[Re]Connect with your Neighbours
Leduc’s Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) team is launching the Good Neighbour initiative for another season. Now in its eleventh year, the Good Neighbour program will revive some popular events from years past such as coffee pop-ups and introduce a new way for community members to connect with free mini libraries.
FCSS leads the city’s Good Neighbour initiative each year, which encourages neighbourly behaviour and community building through a number of events and projects throughout the spring, summer and fall months.
This year, residents are encouraged to connect with their neighbours and take part in any or all of the following:
- Plan a neighbourhood Block Party
- Sign up to become a Block Connector
- Create a Wee Free Library
- Book a Coffee Pop-Up
- Celebrate Good Neighbour Day on Saturday, June 17
- Recognize a Good Neighbour with a greeting card
“Neighbourhoods that are connected foster a safe and caring environment where residents are happy to live, play and raise their families,” says Mayor Bob Young. “Through initiatives like the Good Neighbour program, FCSS supports our community in making those connections and creating neighbourhoods where individuals and families will feel a sense of belonging.”
To learn more or stay up to date on Good Neighbour events this year, residents can follow along on the City’s social media, check out the website or reach out to FCSS at FCSS@leduc.ca or 780-980-7109.
