On Friday August 10th 2012, the North End proved we are a community united.
Over 80 people attended the 36th installment of Meet Me @ the Bell Tower, simply titled: UNITY. This event was organized in partnership with the Winnipeg Police Service, and City Councillors Ross Easie & Mike Pagtakhan. It was intended to create a forum where North Enders could approach councillors and especially Winnipeg Police in a respectful way to create dialogue so we can work together on addressing the issues our communities face. Last week the MM@BT movement drafted its own Safety Plan (click here to check it out).
Check out the below phots & videos of the event! (special thanks to Jacquie, Evan & Greg for assistance in documenting the event!)
After these comments were made, several individuals made announcements.
- All Nations CFS (ANCR) has recently held a Walk-A-Thon in support of AYO and presented our group with $300 to further our efforts
- Tony Niiganii presented AYO with 2 lap tops so we can continue our planning, networking and connecting of various causes/initiatives.
- Nona of Ralph Brown Community Centre announced that NEON (North End Opportunity Network) had recieved a grant from GCWCC to support a part time staff person for 6 months!

The Children Ring the Bell
Many of the young people rang the Bell. Summer Students from the Indian Family Centre, the Winnipeg Police and several young children rang the bell at UNITY!
