Have you noticed DECA has a regular podcast? It’s put out with radio traffic announcer Damon Scheffer and his volunteer-partner-in-crime Emily Anastasiadis, a Grade 4 teacher with a passion for radio.
They’ve just finished Episode 4.
This is what Damon had to say about it:
In this episode we talk to Billy Dertilis. He’s the chair of the Danforth Mosaic BIA, owner of the Red Rocket Cafe and he was also a judge for the DECA Gems contest. Billy talks about his interesting life, working with DECA and the challenges facing the hood.
As well, the East Lynn Farmers Market is back up an running again. Every Thursday at East Lynn Park from 3-7pm you can join hundreds of your neighbours at the park and take in the sites, sounds and most importantly, the tastes of fresh, local fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy products and more. Emily Anastasiadis spoke to a number of the vendors at the market and if her report doesn’t whet your appetite you may need to check if you still have a pulse.
And if that wasn’t enough we’ve got a BONUS feature on Face To Face Games. They recently celebrated their grand opening (even though they’ve been open for nearly a year – they just wanted to make it official) so we thought we’d bring you some of the audio Emily recorded the night of the DECA Gems contest finale that didn’t make it into the last episode.
Enjoy and let us know what you think. If you have any suggestions on stories, events, stores or people you think deserve some coverage in the hood, let us know that as well. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
