The Best Thanksgiving We Could Ask For - CH Newsletter #38 October 7, 2022

As part of joining our private residential community, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events, developments in the student residence and any other relevant news. We've decided to post these updates on our website in order to let our visitors looking for student housing get an inside view of the Chelsea House student life!

Dear CH family,
 
Another week has gone by !! Boy was this one something special for us for our 2nd annual Thanksgiving event πŸ™ with a record turnout of 65 Chelsea House members !!!
 
Needless to say, to see the level of involvement of every student member into contributing to the potluck, helping set up, plan an Afterparty and just give such a warm attitude…it was really something special. Thank you 😍

It's in those moments that all our efforts into building more than a student housing residence but actually a co-living community seem to be actually paying off 😊 ** I’m not crying you’re crying **
 
Asides from that we had a ton of cool giveaways -- Go Habs Go as well as a last warm summer weather. Midterms are coming πŸ₯Ά buckle down !!
