Do you walk around our neighbourhood regularly? Do you notice changes and wonder what’s behind them? Do you have some time on your hands to help us make the Danforth a more active commercial strip?
Then you might be our next Amanda!
For the past year, our dear friend Amanda Olson has been the lynchpin of DECA’s Pop Up team. She’s been our master Tweeter, Facebooker and blogger, keeping you all informed about new developments along the Danforth. She helped organize the DECA Dreams event, where we all got to share our ideas and dreams for the neighbourhood. She helped to vet new pop up shops.
She made a big difference in our little pocket and we are so grateful to her.
But sadly, her maternity leave has ended and she’s back at work.
We need a new Amanda — someone who is curious, likes people, and gets a flutter in their belly when something new opens on the Danforth. Someone with a little time to give during the day. Someone who is ready to give back to the neighbourhood.
The Pop Up Shop team (also know as Renew East Danforth) needs you! Email me, Catherine Porter, if you are keen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will even throw in a box of Amanda’s “Sweet Snaps” for Christmas. They are her new invention. Not so subtle plug: Rumour has it, they’re on sale at LEN and Silly Goose Kids.
