From City Councillor Cindy Gilroy [email protected]
“Current COVID-19 restrictions prohibit exploration of new destinations. As families, neighbours, friends and individuals we are patiently awaiting a time where things feel normal. At this time Winnipeggers are engaging in their own exploration of our City’s neighbourhoods, within the Daniel McIntyre Ward boundary lies many Gems of the West End.
Adapting to ever changing ways, communicating online has become a new norm, behind those screens sometimes this world can feel rather lonely. This goes for personal relationships as well as business relationships.
This FREE campaign based on sharing life’s little pleasures, to remind us that sometimes it’s the little gestures that mean the most. Supporting the well-being of residents, creating smiles, is the goal.
Walk, bike or drive to 3 businesses this weekend starting Saturday April 24, 2021 and enjoy a taste of the West End.
