Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections AGM and dinner Thursday

Exciting things are coming in 2019 for Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections.

We’d like to share our excitement at our free Community Dinner and Annual General Meeting, at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 17. Neighbours, students, parents and faculty are all invited for a delicious pasta (and spaghetti squash) dinner and dessert, featuring many items from our own garden. Participants are welcome to bring an appetizer dish if they wish.

In addition to the dinner, there will be a short AGM to highlight the year’s accomplishments, review the official financial report and invite input for LTNC and Lake Trail School’s exciting new direction as a community school. This fall, Lake Trail received official community school status from School District 71, along with funding to support the partnership between the school staff and our community non-profit. For over 10 years, LTNC has pursued its mandate to support the success of students, families and community members by sharing Lake Trail School as the “heart” of the community. The community-school garden is the most visible sign of our work, but we’ve also been running after-school and adult education programs, including fitness, cooking and preserving, crafts, music, special events and the fabulous salad bar. Plans for the seismically- upgraded Lake Trail School include spaces intended for shared community use. There are many possibilities for community input into future activities, redevelopment of the garden and a proposed childcare facility.

We are actively seeking new board members and encourage all those interested to attend. Our board is excited about adding like-minded community residents (aged 17+ years) who live in the Lake Trail area to our committee. The board is a volunteer position, meetings are once a month, and for the occasional special event. Bring your talents and passion and help us build a healthy, sustainable, resilient community. For more information please contact laketrailvision@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you for dinner. Join us on Thursday, Jan. 17 at Lake Trail School (805 Willemar Ave) from 5:30-7:30 p.m. to enjoy this meal, provide input into future directions and make new friends.
