September 2021 Community Meeting

It’s Small Business September! We’re rounding up small business owners around the neighborhood and giving them a spotlight this month to share news about their shops and upcoming events or promotions, and answer questions from you, the community.

Whether it’s about hours, safety protocol, how to order products or services – whatever is on your mind! 2021 is still a tough time both for residents and business owners, so let’s work together to figure out how to support each other as best we can.

Among the list of presenters are:

  • Mend Acupuncture
  • Blacksauce Kitchen
  • Cafe Los Sueños
  • Mt Royal Soaps

If you’re a local business owner and I haven’t reached out to you yet, please feel free to email me directly at or pop in during the meeting; all are welcome. There will also be room for general community announcements if you have any to make.
