The Power of the Travelling Neighbourhood Plate

The travelling neighbourhood plate is about connecting with neighbours, giving and random acts of kindness. The idea is to fill the plate with special treats, pass it along to a neighbour- ideally to someone you don’t know well. That neighbour enjoys the gift and does the same for another neighbour. The goal is to build connections in the very places we live, with the people who surround us each and every day. It is one small (but very powerful) way to Do Good in Your ‘Hood!

Facilitated plate making workshops have resulted in over 40 plates sent travelling in various neighbourhoods around Canmore. If you would like to create one for your neighbourhood, please stop by the Town of Canmore, FCSS Office (902-7th Avenue) to pick up supplies and instructions! It is a fun, family-friendly activities for individuals of all ages and abilities. The gift is in the connection and giving!
