Event Recap: Lunar New Year Celebration at Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House

On February 18th, Frog Hollow (the Neighbourhood House I volunteer for) had a Lunar New Year Celebration as well as their "Intergenerational Hub" Launch. It was a successful turnout. I had the opportunity to spend some time with the staff and learning about the project and planning the event. It was a fun and exciting event where the community celebrated the Chinese culture with music dancing, food & refreshments, and even a Chinese lion dance performance.

Some of the lovely staff that I volunteer for and work for at the Neighbourhood House.

As for the Intergenerational Hub, it is a project that is planned by various staff and volunteers. The purpose is to get the community involved with activities within the neighborhood. Frog Hollow recently had the Cardio Stepper as well as benches installed at the site along the entrance. Intergenerational means "the interaction between members of different generations." For example: youth and seniors exchanging knowledge and skills with each other. Areas of THE HUB include asset map & community walk, technology, The Hub development itself, out-trips, and workshops.
