Picture of 2018 9th Annual “H” Block Barbeque.

This picture was taken at the 2018 9th Annual “H” Block Barbeque when neighbours from two streets met to share a meal, share their news, and check on one another. The annual gathering has generated a neighbourhood of trust and support and the interaction has become a treasured event.

It takes a community of neighbours to help raise the kids and provide a safe environment. Each year, these neighbours have raised money and chose to give it to the Community Foundation of Swan Valley to ensure that it is used to continue to make this valley a good place to live and work.
