DECA Is Pinning!
Before we get to the round-up of weekend fun, a head’s up for Pinterest fans–DECA is now on Pinterest thanks to volunteer extraordinaire Vicki Ziegler. Our boards are a celebration of the east end businesses, resources, events and stories about the ‘hood. We’re aiming to include everyone eventually, but in the meantime you can help by sending us ideas and links for us to pin at info(at)danfortheastcommunityassociation.com.
Check out our Pinterest account here. While you’re at it, you’ll also want to check out our Facebook page for up-to-the minute events and happenings. And if you like your news in 140 characters, we’re here for you too on Twitter.
Thursday: Movie Under the Stars
A reminder that it’s our annual movie night on Aug. 22 in East Lynn Park, featuring the classic The Princess Bride. Come for the Farmer’s Market and stay for an evening of fun with your neighbours, plus Westley, Buttercup and the R.O.U.S. The action starts when the sun goes down, at 8:30 pm.
Friday: Healthy Lunches and Ca$h Mob!
Back-to-school is glimmering on the horizon (yikes) and Oaks ‘n Acorns is helping you get prepared. Join Nana Jokura of Accept Wellness at 10:30 am, Aug. 23 for a workshop on healthy lunches. Cost is $25. RSVP required at Oaks ‘n Acorns.
Later on Friday, join us for our first ever CA$H MOB! We’ll be mobbing a local business, having fun and heading out for some refreshments at a local watering hole afterwards. The rules are simple:
1) bring $20
2) meet 3 new people
3) have fun
Meet up at 6:45 pm by the doors of Coxwell station when the top secret “mobbing” destination will be revealed.
Saturday: Check out the Pop-up Shops
There isn’t actually an event planned for Saturday, but if you haven’t yet, why not check out the pops before these temporary shops are gone?
Sunday: Annual Summer Festival
The perfect way to end the weekend–at the Danforth Mosaic BIA‘s annual Summer Festival & Community Picnic! Head to East Lynn Park from 1-6 pm on Aug. 25 for games, food, coffee, art exhibitions, music and a raffle draw for 2 bikes!
