Photo's from the St. John's Residents' Association AGM!

On Sunday October 20th, residents and community members gathered at the Ralph Brown Community Centre for the Annual General Meeting. It was a well attended event with representatives from our funders, residents and friends coming together for some food, entertainment and of course electing the new board. 

We had some delicious food prepared by Sharon & Mary that was full of meatballs and roast and potatoes with Three Sisters stew as our vegetarian/vegan option!

Former resident Wanda Wilson entertained us with her musical talents and beautiful voice.

Welcoming remarks were given by our City Councillor Ross Eadie.

We honoured our past chair & Vice Chair Madeline & Ian (and baby) as well as Ashley Grace for helping with the Communications committee.

Dale presented us with the housing report and gave us some good news moving forward in the next year!

We have this beautiful display board to welcome our guests - it is available to go and be shared with other community groups who want to get involved with the residents association!

Thanks for cooking Mary!!

We had kids and adults prizes. Every child in attendance walked away with a prize!

We were honoured to have some support from the North End Ambassadors!

Sgt Bonnie Emerson of the Winnipeg Police Service introduced some North End Police officers and explained how important it is for police and residents to be working together.

Tracey Procter of MPI Citizens on Patrol Program (COPP) also gave a presentation on the COPP Program inviting any neighbourhood groups to contact her to take ownership over our neighbourhooods!

It was a fantastic event, thank you to Sharon, our community Development Worker and all of the SJRA Board and Committees for making our AGM such a success. Special shout out to Ralph Brown & NECRC for their support of the event as well!
