The leaves are changing, the furnaces are on but that doesn’t mean that we need to stay home and hibernate. Here are some upcoming events and opportunities that should keep us out and about (even if we might need a coat).
Happy 100th Anniversary To Gledhill!
Did you or someone you know attend Gledhill Junior Public School? Do you live nearby and have always wondered what goes on in there?

Pumpkin Parade Postering
It’s the most magical time of the year – the annual DECA Pumpkin Parade at East Lynn Park! Can you help us get the word out about this wonderful event by putting up some posters around the neighbourhood? This is a great way to:
- get some exercise
- give you a guaranteed sense of accomplishment with minimal output
- allow you to finally have some time to yourself
- help out your trusty neighbourhood association, and
- generally make you feel like you are a really good person – which you clearly are.
Here is a teeny tiny version of our poster to fill you with excitement about the event because it is always a truly magical evening!
Now that you are burning with desire to help, send an email to Amanda, our volunteer coordinator (who is also a volunteer, because we all are!) and she will get you started.
Spoiler alert: we will also need people on the night of November 1 to help toss the pumpkins into giant bins following the event, so if you want to do that, let Amanda know!
Little Robot Friends Coding Class
Did you know that there’s a little business called Little Robot Friends at 1832 Danforth? Well, now you know and just in time to register for their 4-week coding club for kids aged 9 and up. Details can be found here:
What are little robot friends?
They’re cute robot characters that inspire kids to get creative with technology. These robots are packed with smarts, sensors, and big personalities. You can program them to make expressions, sing songs, perform tricks, and play games. It’s all about learning to code in a fun and engaging way with friends!
About the coding club
They will help participants build their 21st-century skills with an introduction to visual coding using our LRF Blocks App. They’ll also learn fundamental coding concepts through tons of hands-on and collaborative activities. By the end of the course level up with real-world programming in Arduino (C & C++). Gain the core knowledge and skills to tackle independent coding projects with your Little Robot Friend!
Cost: $150 for four weeks on Saturday mornings from 10am-noon, beginning October 21st.
Police Station Consultations
Don’t forget about the consultation meeting being held Tuesday, October 17 (6:45 to to 9:15 p.m.) at SH Armstrong Community Centre, 56 Woodfield Rd about where to put the new police station. One of the three options is at Coxwell & Danforth! Here is our previous blog post for more information.
