    The 31st annual Good Neighbours Awards, hosted by the Association of Neighbourhood Houses BC, was held on Thursday, May 12, 2016 and the evening was a resounding success!

    This year’s event was hosted by Hal Wake and took place at the Fraserview Banquet Hall. The theme was inspired by Indian culture and the guests were served delicious Indian cuisine and enjoyed a wonderful performance by Amandeep Singh.

    Over 225 guests, including volunteers, corporate partners and staff from a majority of the 15 neighbourhood houses in the Lower Mainland, attended the event to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism and neighbourliness.

    Congratulations to the award winners! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to neighbourhood houses and your communities!
