This Saturday is the 2nd annual Kirkendall Food Drive, ‘ Fill a Bus, Feed a Family’.
Please remember to leave your non-perishable goods on your porch, or take them to Mr. Tony’s on Locke, Dell Pharmacy on Aberdeen, or Zarkys on Dundurn on April 30th, May 1st or May 2nd.
Mission Services reports that use of the food bank is up 62% from last year so this is a true crisis.
Monetary donations to Mission Services will accepted as well.
If you wish to help on Saturday, call 905-308-9678. Let’s continue to show that Kirkendall Cares!
Kirkendall has an opportunity this weekend to help send underprivileged children from the Hamilton Community to one-week fully subsidized spots at Camp Maple Leaf this summer!
Register to climb the stairs or walk the Bruce Trail on May 2nd and recruit donations from your friends, families, co-workers, and neighbours. There are 289 steps (that’s 578 steps up then down!) and 2 km or 4 km of Bruce Trail beginning at Chedoke Golf Course.We are seeking the support of clubs, associations, work places, community groups, and individuals to walk the stairs, a treadmill, the Bruce Trail, the block, or the Mall and gain sponsorship pledges to help send kids to Camp.
When: May 2, 2009
Where: Chedoke Stairs @ Chedoke Golf Course
The Goal: To send underprivileged children from the Hamilton Community to one-week fully subsidized spots at Camp Maple Leaf this summer. Thanks to initiatives such as this, these at risk children from the Outreach Program will have experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
The inaugural Steps for Kids event was held on March 1, 2008 at the Wentworth Street stairs in Hamilton. Through sponsorships and donations we raised enough money to send 54 kids from the Under 12 Outreach/Girls Connection program to Camp Maple Leaf in July and August 2008. It was a tremendous success.

The Pedestrian and Cycling Issues Committee presents
City Repair: Transforming Space into Place
Monday, April 20, 7:30 pm
Stanley Avenue Baptist Church
City Repair was formed in Portland, Oregon in 1996 by citizen activists who want to build a more community-oriented
and ecologically sustainable society. This inspiring documentary depicts City Repair’s efforts to transform spaces into places through public art, community gardens, street festivals, and the conversion of a residential street intersection into a neighborhood public square through streetpainting. By reclaiming urban spaces to create community-oriented places, City Repair plants the seeds for greater neighborhood communication, empowerment, and local cultures and economies.
A discussion of possible place-making projects for our community will follow.
Admission is free – all are welcome!
