Yes there is a farmers’ market this Thursday (Canada Day). It’s the Strawberry Social special event. There will be delectable strawberry treats courtesy of Celena’s Bakery (thank you Celena’s!) You can do the East York Canada Day Parade in the morning and then make your way to the market in the afternoon. Can’t think of a better way to celebrate your country and your community.
Woodbine Subway Station
In 2011, the TTC is making the Woodbine subway station more accessible by building a second exit and putting in two elevators. You are invited to attend an open house information session to see the design and learn more about the project and the construction. The open house is at the Coxwell Public Library (at Danforth) on Tuesday, June 29th from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
If you can’t make it to the open house, you can contact the TTC at Woodbine.Station@ttc.ca or 416-393-4001
the 3/50 project
Thanks to Mary-Margaret McMahon for pointing us to this (American) website about ‘saving the brick and mortar our nation is built on.’ It asks the question, ‘what three independently-owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared?’ It encourages you to shop local with some very interesting statistics.
