We had a tremendously good time.
Areas of Interest
Inside the community centre, we set up tables for various areas of interest. Many community groups came out to talk about their initiatives. We also had idea boards where people could write their ideas about future projects.
These areas included:
- Community Building
- Neighbourhood Beautification
- Heritage Preservation
- Crafts & Arts
- Sports & Outdoor Activities
- Family Activities
- Community Safety
We also had representatives and contributors from many other local groups, including:
- MRPM Parks & Leisure Services
- Maple Ridge Museum & Archives
- Peter Tam and the Open Door Church
- Family Education & Support Centre
- MRPM Arts Council & the ACT Arts Centre & Theatre
- Girl Guides of Canada – Port Hammond District
- Maple Ridge Bicycle Advisory Council
- “Our Neighbourhoods” Initiative
- Ridge Meadows Recycling Society
Maple Ridge Thrifty Foods sponsored a free swim at the Hammond Pool and provided a giant cake! Port Kells Nursery provided a gorgeous fuschia basket as a door prize. Two RCMP officers in full dress uniform came by and chatted with community members.

Lots of fun and exciting projects to come!
