McCauley Families

Building friendships through creative activities.

My main vision is to build a stronger, positive community through the families that live in McCauley. With this project, we will hold an event once a month, on a Sunday afternoon between 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The purpose of each event is to bond with our children through creative activities and build friendships among the kids and the parents of the community. With the friendships we can hopefully drive more positive traffic through the area and make the streets feel safer. Programs and camps for the kids will also be built so that we can continue the strong friendships we made and also give our children more opportunity in activities they are interested in.

I’ve joined with both McCauley Revitalization and the Community League to be able to give such a great opportunity to the families of McCauley. Anyone with children ages 2 to 16 are welcome, but I do need an RSVP emailed to me at lily@viphalay.com. There is limited space and supplies so I cannot accept walk-ins. A light lunch will be provided as well at each event. The first event will be held June 3 at the Multicultural Centre lunchroom at 2 p.m.

Dates of Events:
June 3
July 29
August 26
September 23
October 28

All events are 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please RSVP to lily@viphalay.com at least two weeks in advance.
