Jam at the Jam: A Block Party in the FraserHood

A couple of days ago, I heard a knock at the door. I opened it, despite the fact that when I'm surprised by someone knocking at my door, it's nearly always someone trying to get me to give money to a charity or go to a church. Happily, it was two new neighbours, Michelle & Brittney, from around the corner, come to let me know about a block party they're planning. Here are the details, in case you find yourself in the Fraser & Kingsway area this weekend:

Jam at the Jam
August 9th // 12-4pm: Laneway Revitalization * Laneway Clean-up
* Community Garden Building
* Laneway Scavenging

August 10th // 2-8pm: Community Celebration!* Arts & Crafts Workshops
* Improv Puppet Shows
* Clothing Swap
* Live Music
* Tamales, poutine, and hotdogs!
* Friendship Building Ceremonies
* Outdoor Art Gallery
* And Much More!

If you like, you can RSVP or ask questions via the Facebook Event page. More information at 

Hope to see you there!
