Small community grants celebrated

A celebration of the Small Community Grants program in 2012 will be held Feb. 22 at Centennial Lodge in Queen’s Park (6-9 p.m.) with the hope of hooking up neighbourhood groups for more in 2013.

The program, instituted by the Vancouver Foundation last year, gave money to little events that connected neighbourhoods.

Last year’s grants included block parties, sports groups amd community cleanups totalling more than $10,000.

A resident advisory committee was formed in New Westminster to review and approve the applications.
