Fall fest on Upper Avenue – Saturday, October 19th
Our Businesses on Upper Avenue between Joicey and Roe put on a very enjoyable Fall fest – a fall-themed “open house” event to celebrate our vibrant Upper Avenue community on Saturday, October 19th.   Councillor Colle and his Staff made a great piping hot minestrone soup.  Good turnout and everyone enjoyed the events/giveaways/specials.  We will be starting the planning soon for an even bigger and better event in 2020!

Fall Fest on Upper Avenue

Supported by:  Councillor Mike Colle, the Upper Avenue Community Association, the Bedford Park Residents Organization, the South Armour Heights Residents’ Association and the Ledbury Park Connects Group.

 

14th Annual Neighbours’ Night Out on June 18 2019

We had a great evening for the 14th Annual Neighbours’ Night Out!  This year we visited the  Northern portion of the SAHRA area, holding the event in front of 2 Armour Blvd.

The firetruck/firemen were there as well as the police car/policemen – the children had great fun climbing about/experimenting.  We all enjoyed the ice cream and the colourful ballons – thanks to Baskin Robbins and Party Rock.

Thanks as well to our Raffle sponsors for the great prizes – The Miller Tavern, York Mills Eyecare and the Bank of Montreal.

Special thanks to our Volunteers who helped make it a successful event – Joanne Alter, Lynda Holloway, Michelle Nichol, Johan Duker, Robin Dunbar, Heather Crawford, Wendy Johnson, Eileen Su and our student volunteers Madison Wang and Tess Gillanders.

See below for a link to photos of the event.

A good time was had by all!

ROM – 3rd Monday Nights Free

The Royal Ontario Museum has announced a new initiative that will enable members of the public to visit the Museum free of charge once a month.  3rd Monday Nights Free furthers their commitment to provide greater access to the Museum and open the doors of the ROM to as many visitors as possible.  This program is supported by the TD Bank Group and The Bennett Family Foundation.  The program was launched on April 15th.  The ROM is offering the public complimentary access to the Museum’s 40 galleries, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month.  Entry to feature exhibitions such as Zuul: Life of an Armoured Dinosaur and Treasures of a Desert Kingdom: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur will be separately ticketed and subject to a surcharge.  Working with their community partners, these evenings will also feature local artists and performers, further enhancing the Monday night experience.
