Party in the Park

Wow what a great Party –  check out the pictures
 
The Mount Dennis Community Kitchen provided hamburgers, hotdogs, fruit, snacks and drinks for all those who attended.  Noticable in the their chef hats and aprons – and their great big smiles.  Thanks so much to this great group.  Want to find out more – stop by on Friday evenings 6 – 9pm at Mount Dennis United Church  (guestville and dennis ave)
 
The Community Play project gave us two sneak peaks from their planned fall performance  (Sept 19/20/26/27).  The turtles showcased the eglinton flats and some of the local children who are very ‘green’ aware.  The kitchen & vegetable parade provide a great opportunity for the audience to participate and highlighted the talent of local musician Obie who is the youth musical director for the play.  The play project team meets on Friday nights along side the community kitchen.  Contact Dale Hamilton if you are interested.
 
b-current dancers – with their ‘nancy spider’ faces, great music and dance moves provided lots of excitement and once again got the whole audience participating.  A surprise visit by a Moko Jumbie that got a mini caribana style parade started in the park.  Thanks to the new to us group –  check out thier website  or their

Arts in your Backyard BBQ on August 15th in Weston-Mt. Dennis (in partnership with Toronto Community Housing) 30 Denarda Street 12:00 to 5:00pm.

Dave the turtle guy and Amanda one of our local youth environmentalist / activists lead groups on a tour of the pond area. If you have never been into the flats you are missing out on prime urban oasis with more than 100 bird species  (spotted during one of the tours was a blue heron), turtles, fish, foxes amongst lots of trees and green space hidden behind soccer fields and tennis courts.

Also thanks to Dave for providing fishing rods and help for all the children who wanted to try and catch something –  no fish, but lots of fun was had.

Thanks  to YCS who provided had washing stations and information.  The Clean Train Coalition had an info table with an update on efforts to get electric transit running on the rail corridor by 2014. We  want to see this happen instead of the current plan which will have our neighbourhood polluted by increased diesel train traffic. As part of this, a Speak Out  Poster Art station attracted local several  sign artists for signs to use at future events. Also, a petition to the Province was signed by a number of party-go-ers.   See CTC for further details

Finally thanks to all the Mount Dennis community for coming out on a beautiful summer evening and celebrating all that is good about our neighbourhood.
