Friends, June 7 has the makings to be the perfect Saturday. Here’s why:
#DanforthEast Garage Sale, 8:00am-2:00pm
Our #DanforthEast Garage Sale got a bit of buzz today, thanks to a mention on CBC radio’s Metro Morning and an interview with Bruce (DECA Volunteer who thought up the idea of the big sale) on CBC’s Here and Now.

Planet Kid 2-Day Pop-up Shop! 9:00am-5:00pm
Exciting news: beloved west-end retailer Planet Kid is bringing their annual studio sale east! Did you check them out today? If you have or know any kids, there are some SERIOUS deals to be had on high quality stuff. It’s happening for 2 days only, and since today was one of them this leaves you only tomorrow to stop in! See below and our website here for all the details.
Everett Park Opening – 11:00am-1:00pm
In a city where land and space are at a premium, and condos are rising out of every open lot, it’s no small feat to open up a brand new park. And yet, we’re getting one!
Councillor Janet Davis is hosting the official opening of our newest park, located just north of Lumsden running between Oak Park Avenue and Everett Crescent. I’m guessing that the official stuff will happen closer to 11am, but the official Facebook invite says that it goes until 1pm. (And the park lasts forever, so go anytime!)
100 in 1 day – Gledhill School, 2:00-5:00pm
Looking for a family activity for this Saturday afternoon? Drop by the school yard between 2pm to 5pm and we will be transforming the walkway from the playground to Cedarvale Ave into a work of art! All ages welcome, no sign up required. Valumart is donating some light refreshments to keep us cool!
Gledhill is making a difference!
What is 100 in 1 Day?
On June 7, 2014, for the first time, Toronto will host 100 in 1 Day, a citizen-driven festival that invites individuals, communities and organizations to create acts of urban change (or interventions). Co-presented by Evergreen CityWorks and United Way Toronto, 100 in 1 Day is part of a global initiative where individuals, communities and organizations bring to life 100 interventions that reflect their vision for a better city, neighborhood or community — all on one day. From urban gardens to spontaneous art installations, these interventions have the potential to bring people together, to raise awareness of urban and social issues, to inspire ideas, and to motivate leaders to consider new approaches to old problems.
Channel 64 Photography Exhibit Opening, hosted by LEN, 6:00-8:00pm
LEN would like to invite you to the opening party for neighbourhood local’s (Andrew and Melody Tolson) Channel 64’s photography and encaustic exhibition. Refreshments will be served! 698 Coxwell Avenue (just north of Danforth)
