Several community agencies promoted their programs to residents of a social housing neighbourhood in High Prairie at a block party Sept. 15.

Heart River Housing hosted the event on Evergreen Drive between 76th Street and Poplar Place.

“It’s great to have local service providers promote their programs in this way to people in social housing,” says Shirley Matula, tenant liaison co-ordinator.
“A lot of these residents don’t know what’s available locally and this shows them what they can access.”

Hotdogs and popcorn were also enjoyed by residents who attended.

The block party featured agencies:
* Alberta Health.
* High Prairie Parent Link Centre.
* High Prairie and District Children’s Resource Centre.
* Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council.
* Alberta Works.
