In May 1976, we moved to Sumac Place in Westsyde, Kamloops BC. There were many young families and eventually 42 children on the block at one time. Today 11 out of 22 families are still here. Our children played together now our grandchildren are play together. Like anywhere this street had its tribulations of life – accidents, illness and death – yet we have stuck together and supported one another. We have celebrated throughout the years, Christmas get-togethers, community garage sales, weddings and well, just parties. This year to celebrate 35 years of living as neighbors, 3 couples flew to Las Vegas and cruised back to Vancouver. In August a reunion of neighbors past and present took place. We are 5 minutes from the backcountry, 5 minutes to the North Thompson River, 5 minutes from the Dunes Golf course and 45 minutes from wonderful Sun Peaks with its ski hills and spring flowers. Where else could you find this type of neighborhood and all these great amenities?
The McCauley neighbourhood in Edmonton Alberta has the old Victorian vintage charm mixed with modern day design. The area is as diverse in culture as it is in ethnicity. The LRT is central for easy access to the city or residents can simply enjoy the walking distance to parks, the river valley, the stadium and the annual summer fair grounds. The neighbourhood is only minutes away from schools, university's , new medical centres, the upgraded Royal Alexander Hospital and the popularly busy Kingway Garden Mall. Major renovations at the Commonwealth Stadium welcomes a state of the art Community Recreation center set to open early 2012. Of course for the football and concert fans, parking will never be an issue with the LRT so close to the stadium. If you are looking for a quiet neighbourhood, rich is diversity and culture from all "neighbourhoods of the world" then you will love your home in McCauley, an affordable, comfortable neighbourhood that is community spirit minded.
