Community Action Group on Homelessness

Up for being a book? The Fredericton Community Action Group on Homelessness (CAGH) will host a Living Library on 10 Oct 2017.
 
Volunteers, or living books, are needed who are willing to share the story of their life with “readers” who will ask them questions one on one. A living book can be anyone who has a history of housing insecurity and/or homelessness, as well as people who are currently experiencing these issues.
 
Each reader can check a book out for twenty minutes. The conversation can also finish before twenty minutes if the reader and/or book feels the most comfortable this way.
 
Why? By giving people with lived experiences of homelessness and/or housing insecurity a chance to share their story, people in Fredericton can have a chance to see the human side of these issues.

NB Lung Association

The NB Lung Association’s Bike For Breath needs CROSSING GUARDS on Sun, 24 Sep 2017 for its 21+ km trail ride route, viewable here.

  • Crossing guards meet at the Picaroons Roundhouse between 1200-1300 hr to pick up their vest, sign, and complimentary Bike For Breath tee.
  • Cyclists on this route depart the Roundhouse at 1330 hr, so crossing guards must be in place by this time. This route should take approximately 2 hours for the average cyclist to complete, so you are looking at a 2-2.5 hour crossing guard shift.
  • Crossing guards are to be placed in the Victoria Health Centre/Sunshine Gardens area (parking available at Victoria Health Centre), with one situated at the crosswalk by the Town and Country Motel on Woodstock Rd. , just to ensure safe passage and visibility to motorists for the few times the trail route intersects with streetways.
  • All volunteers are invited for a meal by Locavore foods and a beer tasting by Picaroons at the Chillout Afterparty, scheduled to begin at 1700 hr!

To sign up, contact Maggie at (506) 455-8961, ext. 103 or Maggie.Estey@NB.Lung.ca, provide your t-shirt size and any dietary restrictions (for the delicious meal), and come party with the Lung Association and the New Brunswick cycling community!
