Strand Cheque Presentation
“The team from the Little Mountain Neighbourhood House Society did an excellent job planning The Riley Park Community Garden and upon completion, it will be an invaluable asset to the community where the neighbourhood can gather, learn and socialize. Realizing the importance of organization, planning and leadership in the success of volunteer initiatives, Strand is proud to be the supporters of what will be an invaluable community asset. We look forward to visiting the garden upon completion and we hope that it can be used as a model to influence the completion of similar projects elsewhere in Vancouver in the future.”
