As this summer has progressed, we have seen the community come together to enjoy its bounty. We saw Sum Theatre host the opening night of its production of Alice in A.H. Browne Park. We had hundreds of people come to the park to enjoy this event. Currently our Local Area Plan is on summer break but returned in August to work on traﬃc safety for our area.
We are also working on organizing community events to enjoy and are looking forward to our Annual General Meeting where we will elect next year’s board. I encourage all of you to come out and be active in these issues.
Neighbourhood safety is still a concern and I hope more of you will come out and join the local neighbourhood watch to ensure the safety and security of our families and businesses. As we work together to improve our neighbourhood, it improves all of our lives and makes this a better place that others will look at for settling their families.
One ﬁnal thing I would like to mention is that we are an older neighbourhood with many older fruit trees. I hope if you have one of these in your yard you are able to enjoy its bounty, but if you are not able to harvest its fruit, please consider contacting Out Of Your Tree. This is a non-proﬁt organization that gets volunteers to assist you to harvest your fruit. You get a share, the volunteer gets a share and a share goes to those in need. If you are interested in volunteering your time or if you have fruit that you will not be able to use, contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and I hope this summer has been a very bountiful one for you.
