2016 Flu Shot Clinics

The Province of Manitoba and the WRHA will be providing free flu shot clinics from October 25-27. This will help residents who do not have access to a doctor to receive flu shots, within their community setting.

The flu shot clinic for our area will be held at Win Garner (363 McGregor St) on October 26 (12:30-4:30) & 27 (2:30-6:30).

Alternatively, flu shots are available free of charge at pharmacies and Quick Care Clinics within the city. Please bring your Manitoba Health card when attending.

Community Survey

Hello residents!
We are planning to meet next year to decide the fate of our residents association. We are currently on pause to assess our need within the community. We love making our neighbourhood a better place to live, work, and play and we truly want to return to continue our goals.
I have created a survey to gauge our need within the community. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey to help us better understand what our residents require from us. This survey is completely anonymous and we do not require information from you such as your name, address, etc. Results will be reviewed and published on our website at the end of the year.
Thank you for taking the time to help us out. We’re looking forward to returning in the near future.

Faraday Residents Association Important Notice

Good evening residents, friends, and supporters:

At a meeting held last night a decision regarding the future of the residents association was made, and we must preface the following by saying that it was a very difficult decision.

Effective immediately the Faraday Residents Association has been dissolved. At this time we are no longer able to continue with our organization and we felt that it was best to hang up the keys after many wonderful years. There were a number of variables that went into this consideration, and both my co-chair and I agree, that the FRA cannot run at half steam.

We would like to take this time to thank all of our residents and community supporters that have helped us over the years. You have ALL made our community shine and shared the importance and passion of our little neighbourhood. You truly are amazing.

We will meet again in the future to decide if the dissolution of the association will remain permanent, or if it will be viable to return at some point. For now, we have disbanded and it makes our hearts heavy.

When I took on this role as Chair in 2012, I had a vision for our little community – to lift it up and make it shine. From community picnics to family fun nights, it was our way to help support the community and from the turn out, we knew that you loved it. However, the old adage is true – “If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours.” The Faraday community has given me so much over the 30 years that I have lived here and I felt that it was my sense of duty to repay that honour. I still feel this way and I always will. This community will always hold a very special place in my heart. I am hoping that in a few years that we will be able to return, with a new sense of commitment and a fresh start. We hope that you will return, too.

Until that time comes, my co-chair and I thank you once again for your commitment to our community. The only we can make it better is if we come together collectively and lift each other up. We have the most amazing people that live within the boundaries of our community and it goes to show how truly great we can be!

This is not a goodbye because we will be back! We hope that you will join us. I will continue to update our Facebook and Twitter pages with community news and events to keep our residents in the loop with area happenings. Our website will continue to remain active.

For now, have the most enjoyable year that you can achieve and please continue to work together… because when neighbours get together, great things can happen!

Warmest regards,

Michelle Arnaud, Chair
