Milton Community Hall MVPs -Most Valuable People
The past few years have been difficult for many – in so many ways. The Milton Community Hall cares about its community members and will host activities to reduce social isolation and meet the social and educational needs of people. The project aims to build a caring community, expanding current activities to learn, laugh, work and play together. People will increase their social networks, learn skills and techniques to increase coping skills and cope with or release stress. Inclusive activities held close to home will build a caring neighbourhood, where people feel comfortable to share stresses, help neighbours and increase their sense of belonging.
Over the three-year project, the Milton Community Hall would host a minimum of 150 free events for people (beyond the current level). These would be in many categories: Health and Exercise, Relationships, Creativity, Nature and Pets, Life Skills, Parental and Family Support, Youth, and Social Inclusion. This new staff person would organize the activities and coordinate volunteers, oversee the project budget and be responsible for purchasing for program supplies, coordinating presenters, documenting the project, and recordkeeping.
Activities will vary, e.g. a sleep workshop, Tai chi , Meditation/Mindfulness, Smoking cessation, Walking Club, Communication skills, connecting seniors and youth, eg learn to play crokinole, Postcard-writing, Community Get-Togethers, Creative art classes and groups, Barn quilts, Coffee houses, Music, Concerts, Foraging, Tree grafting, Gardening, Pet-related activities, Budgeting and cooking workshops, First Aid, Critical Thinking Skills, Positive Parenting, Baby Sitting Course, toy library, Care for the caregiver, Parenting group, etc..
