Farmers’ Market Help Needed

Now that our super barricade helpers are back in school, we really really need a bit of help with the street closure barricades on Thursdays.  We need help at 1:30 p.m. for about 30 minutes.  If you can help please let Diana know at diana.mymarket@gmail.com.

Thanks!

And speaking of the market, I am remiss in sending out a big thank you to all those who helped make our peach festival and movie night in the park another fantastic success.  First, thank you to the fabulous Vera and Slavicia from the Cozy Cafe and Bakery for their delectable peach strudels.  The peaches were from our peach farmers, one of whom was in hospital with a collapsed lung – so we wish Matteo good health and a quick recovery.

Also a big thank you to Better Bulk for donating the popcorn for our movies under the stars event.  Thank you to volunteers Mohit and Pria Raj for popping corn all night long and to Show Pro for donating all the electronics we needed to make it happen.  Thanks to Alison McMurray for organizing the whole shabang.  And thanks to you for supporting DECA through our (minimal) fundraisers and with your $10/year membership fees.  It costs us $450 for the right to show the movie.   We also pay permit fees every week for the park and for all the other stuff we do.  That’s where your money goes – so thanks!

Media on the new Tim Horton’s

I missed these stories when I was out of town in August about the new Tim Horton’s/Esso at Danforth and Greenwood.  Here’s one by the Star’s Urban Issues columnist, Christopher Hume. And one by Peter Kuitenbrouwer at the National Post.
