Held annually on the third Saturday of June, Neighbour Day is an opportunity to get together with your neighbours and celebrate Calgary’s strong community spirit.
Neighbour Day began in 2014 to celebrate the incredible outpouring of support and generosity neighbours demonstrated after the 2013 floods. It has evolved into an annual celebration of what makes Calgary such a great city – our strong and caring communities. Neighbour Day continues to grow each year.
Small grants up to $200 are available for residents of Highland Park who plan an event with their neighbours. The event must be free and there is an application to fill out to request grants. Contact your Community Social Worker, Jennifer DiMarzo, to apply. Deadline for applications is May 24, 2019. For ideas and help in planning an event visit www.calgary.ca. Get creative!
