Hello to All!
As many of you may already know, the Chalmers Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation is working towards their first general meeting and Community Celebration this September.
As part of the plans, we have been working on the development of a Community Visual that tells the story of these efforts and showcases the Chalmers neighbourhood in a 4-part video production.
Chapter One — the first Chalmers video on youtube:
so please take a look when you have a moment.
ON TOP OF THAT, WE’D LIKE TO INVITE EACH OF YOU TO CONSIDER PARTICIPATING IN HELPING US TO DEVELOP CHAPTER TWO OF OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD PRODUCTION THAT WILL FOCUS ON “PEOPLE, PRIORITIES AND OPPORTUNITY”!
WE’D BE THRILLED TO HAVE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
-BY CONTRIBUTING ANY PICTURES YOU HAVE ON THE PROGRAMS, SERVICES AND PARTICIPANTS YOU ARE CONNECTED WITH IN THE CHALMERS NEIGHBOURHOOD
-BY CONTRIBUTING YOUR FEEDBACK IN ANSWERING A FEW QUESTIONS RELATED TO OUR 6 MAIN PRIORITIES (SAFETY, RECREATION/GREENING, COMMUNITY SERVICES, COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS, WELLNESS AND HOUSING).
OUR VIDEO PRODUCERS (PROCTER BROS. INDUSTRIES) WILL THEN BE MATCHING UP VARIOUS TAPED RESPONSES WITH THE PHOTO COLLECTIONS IN PREPARING A 90 SECOND – 2 MINUTE VIDEO THAT WILL REPRESENT CHAPTER TWO OF OUR 4-PART VIDEO PRODUCTION.
WE ARE INTERESTED IN HEARING YOUR PERSPECTIVES ON BOTH THE PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES YOU HAVE IN TERMS OF TRYING TO MATCH OPPORTUNITY WITH THE VARIOUS NEEDS AND INTERESTS THAT EXIST IN THE CHALMERS NEIGHBOURHOOD….FROM BREAKFAST CLUBS, COMMUNITY GARDENS, BEAUTIFY ELMWOOD, HOUSING, RECREATION AND ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION INITIATIVES TO TIE TYKE PRE-SCHOOL, YOUTH, FAITH BASED,BUSINESS, ABORIGINAL AND NEWCOMER PROGRAMS & SERVICES WE KNOW THERE ARE MANY GREAT SUCCESS STORIES TO BE SHARED!
