The MHBPNA worked with others in the community on a Pen Pal Project which we reported on here. This was made possible by a grant from the Kitchener Health and Safety Advisory Committee.
We had over 20 families participate for a total of around 100 people in our neighbourhood exchanging letters over a 3 - 4 month period.
Much of the hard work of matching and organizing was done by Matt and Kim form Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region.
The projected ended with a picnic at George Lippert Park on Saturday, June 20th. The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time.

The Pen Pal Project is ending now, but we hope to have inspired a new group of letter writers and we had a great time organizing everything and meeting many of the "pen pals" in person. This was a great neighbourhood initiative so THANK YOU to all involved.
