#LoveDanforthEast – show the love this week!

Do you feel love in the air? Whether or not you are pro- or anti-Valentine’s Day, getting out and enjoying the neighbourhood is a great way to embrace February.

We put a call out on our Facebook page for Valentine’s Day events – see below for what we heard back. But first, be sure to get your skates ready for the Friends of Monarch Park annual community skating party, happening tomorrow (Sunday, February 11) at 3pm.

Here are some Valentine’s Day ideas for everyone, whether you are celebrating or not! Shopping and dining locally boosts our local economy and keeps our neighbourhood vibrant and thriving. Stores we love don’t stay open unless we support them so check out these or other shops and show how much you #LoveDanforthEast!
