NOTRE-DAME-DE-GRÂCE COMMUNITY COUNCIL

TABLE DE QUARTIER NDG

 

Supporting Local initiatives in NDG

An important part of our mandate is support for groups of local residents who want to make a difference in their community. This support can take the form of staff time, or use of the Council's space or other resources. If you are interested in starting your own NDG-based group, or if you belong to a group that you think could benefit from the support of the Council, please contact us at ndgcc@ndg.ca.


Christmas Dinner in NDG



A volunteer-run Christmas Day event of food and fellowship! This thirty-year-old tradition serves over 600 festive meals to the community as a means to promote cultural exchange, along with live entertainment, games and gifts for the kids. 

Organized exclusively by an army of volunteers, this Christmas Day event of food and fellowship has been running for more than thirty 

years. This event is heavily supported by donations from the community which include cash contributions, turkeys, baked goods, drinks and gifts for the children. Last Christmas a total of 742 meals were served with all the trimmings.

The Sandra Frosst Memorial Program

Residents can receive limited start-up funds to carry out projects with the goal of bringing people together to benefit the community. By facilitating and encouraging a broad range of initiatives and activities, the Sandra Frosst Memorial Program hopes to further the rich NDG tradition of volunteerism, resident initiative, and involvement. 

Some projects this past year include: 

L’art de soi: A craft workshop that brings together parents with children to encourage people to get to know each other;

Numina Singing for the dying: A non-denominational group that comes together to bring the gift of song with and for those experiencing terminal illness. They will record a CD and the grant will go towards the cost of printing;

Garden of Thyme Gallery : creating and displaying children‘s art work during NDG Arts Week .

The Sandra Frosst Memorial Program is currently at the end of its funding. Our intern from McGill Social Work presented a report to the steering committee that provided an analysis of the ability of the program to meet its original objectives, the impacts and successes of funded projects, and what support is needed from the Council for it to continue. To strengthen this analysis, interviews were conducted with past participants and steering committee members to develop a more indepth perspective of experiences with the program.
