First of all, thank you to everyone who came out to the Pumpkin Parade at East Lynn Park on November 1st and especially to the volunteers who tossed pumpkins in less-than-ideal weather to help us restore the park at the end of the night.
The Pumpkin Parade was the first of four November DECA events. Here is the low-down on what else is coming up!
DECA Pride cinq-à-sept | November 9 |5-7pm
Bringing together East End LGBTQ+ folks and allies, DECA Pride is hosting a casual get together at Local 1794 from 5-7pm. Light snacks provided. Meet at the back!
DECA Annual General Meeting & Party | November 20 | 7-9pm
It’s our last official #DECAde event – the Annual General Meeting & Party! Come to Hirut Café and Restaurant to eat delicious Ethiopian food, listen to some live music, meet your neighbours, renew your membership or join DECA and celebrate another great year of community-building. Cash bar. Board elections and formal remarks will be short, starting at around 8. Facebook event is here.
Stay tuned for our recommended nominations for next year’s Board. Spoiler alert: change is afoot!
DECA’s Festival of Lights | November 25 | 5-6pm
For the past five years, DECA has organized a tree lighting event at East Lynn Park to celebrate the festive season and this year promises to be the best one yet!
Rumour has it that Santa himself has cleared his schedule to visit us.
Watch this space for the beautiful poster to come, and in the meantime, save the date!
