Neighbourhood Travelling 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. It is one small (but very powerful) way to Do Good in Your ‘Hood!

Supplies (platter, sharpie markers and baking instructions) are available at the Town of Canmore FCSS office located in the Civic Centre at 902-7 Avenue.  Please come by, pick up your supplies and start this wonderful project in your own neighbourhood! Or, take part in our upcoming workshop!


Book Now!

Check the calendar below for availability. Please note that the calendar only previews bookings up to 6 months in advance. To inquire about a date more than 6 months away, contact Family & Community Support Services (FCSS).
