The national edition of Neighbours Day in Quebec will take place on June 6, 2015. For the past nine years, this celebration has brought together thousands of people throughout the province. Its goal is to create a sense of friendship and to reinforce proximity and solidarity among neighbours.
For the occasion, partners with Memphré en Mouvement will pool their resources to help support activities in the Saint-Jean Bosco area, around the Maison de la Famille and the school, on Jean-Paul ll Street.
Although the event receives support from “neighbouring” organizations, it is organized primarily by neighbourhood residents themselves, in keeping with the concept of Neighbours Day. The idea is to offer activities that are simple, fun and inexpensive and that allow people to build ties.
Moreover, a similar event is in preparation in the Tisserands district, with the Centre d’Ecoinitiatives Populaires, in order to mark the opening of its collective gardens in the courtyard of the former Le Transit School.
As part of its vision, Memphré en Mouvement wants to encourage citizens and families to get involved. Therefore, we urge you to promote Neighbours Day by inviting people to take part in events in Saint-Jean Bosco or in Les Tisserands, if they live in those neighbourhoods, or yet by getting them interested in planning their own celebration with their immediate neighbours.
More information about the event will soon follow.
