Jessie Avenue Block Party – Saturday, June 10, 2023

This coming Saturday (June 10), our Jessie Avenue neighbors will be hosting a Block Party starting around 2:00 p.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. (or thereabouts).

While The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg is not directly involved in the organization of this community celebration, we are participating on a small scale by serving up some delicious cake to any and all who come by (and when the cake is gone, it is gone!) – but, we have enough for around 200 folks (so, we think we are good!).

We provide this advice as a courtesy forewarning primarily regarding the parking situation. Jessie Avenue will be blocked off for one block (between Hugo St. N. and Cockburn St.) and no parking will be permitted. The expectation is also that there will be more noise than usual with little and big people having fun and simply being neighborly.

We will be escorting some of our Residents outside so that they, too, can soak up the sun and the atmosphere. Families/friends of our Home are most welcome to bring their loved ones outdoors to enjoy some of the fun and to partake!

The weather is looking like it will be a perfect day – but, Mother Nature will indeed still have the final say. 😊

Wishing all “Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows”!
