LOCATION: Mayfair Community School, 510 34th Street West
This 2 hour session describes the journey to become a gang member, often beginning in early childhood or even prior to birth. Poverty, racism, abandonment, and various forms of dysfunction and abuse lead young people into a life which promises acceptance and fulfillment, but which in fact is addictive, criminal, and controlled by others. Our society seems unable to reclaim these alienated and troubled youth. In this presentation, the Medicine Wheel is the holistic model used in the beginning of a journey of healing. Stan Tu’Inukuafe will talk about the history of youth without belonging, as well as the needs and processes in a journey of recovery and rehabilitation.
During the second and third part of the presentation, STR8-UP members (all recovering gang members) will share their criminal and incarceration experiences and will focus on their self-empowerment and rehabilitation in achieving a healthy transformation. Open exchange and discussion with the audience will close the session.
SPONSORED BY: Hudson Bay Park/Mayfair/Kelsey Woodlawn, Westmount, and Caswell Hill Community Association. All welcome. Donations will be graciously accepted, but are not required.
It’s time for the Hudson Bay Park / Mayfair / Kelsey-Woodlawn Winter Snowflake Art Project for youth 2-16 years old! Your homemade snowflake will be displayed in the windows at furnaceguys Home Heating & Cooling (411-33rd St W) from mid December until January 6 (snowflake drop off location is Mayfair Library).
You can design your own paper snowflake at home and give it to staff at MAYFAIR LIBRARY from DECEMBER 5 – 18. Give library staff your name and phone number for the random draw happening on December 20 for a prize (not a contest so all youth have a chance). 1 entry per youth (you can make more than 1 snowflake, but 1 entry for the draw)
Or you can join Mayfair Library’s “Cards, Crafts and Chocolate” program on Friday, December 16 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm to make your snowflake. The library will provide all art supplies.
Have fun with your snowflake design and help bring winter cheer to the neighbourhood!

Community Clean-Up to Welcome Spring!
(meet at 9:45am to sign in at A.H. Browne Park, 37th St. W. between Avenues D and F)
The 2nd Annual Community Clean-Up will take place in A.H. Browne Park and surround-ing streets. The Hudson Bay Park/Mayfair/Kelsey-Woodlawn Community Association is organizing another come-on-your-own or come-as-a-group, all-ages, family-friendly clean-up to welcome Spring and enjoy getting some fresh air and exercise. Garbage bags will be provided, but please bring your own gloves.
A light lunch will be provided to volunteers and water will be available. The bathrooms will be open just before the clean-up, then closed during the clean-up, and opened again during lunch. The park has a beautiful playground, so bring your family and hang out for a bit. Meet at the A.H. Browne Park playground equipment around 9:45 to sign in and get your garbage bags. We also have “Community Volunteers” shirts that you can borrow to wear during the clean-up; the community event shirts are red, so feel free to wear your own red shirt if you like.
Note: Children’s wagons are great for helping to carry garbage bags and the kids can ride along or help pull the wagon.
Hope to see you on May 2nd – thank you for helping the community welcome Spring!
