Emery Village BIA Executive Director’s message - October 2022

This Remembrance Day, Emery Village BIA will carry on our tradition of hosting a gathering and wreath laying ceremony in honour of our fallen soldiers and veterans, and in memory of Joseph Bannon. The ceremony will be held at Joseph Bannon Park - 65 Mary Chapman Boulevard – on Friday, November 11, 2022 starting at 10:30 a.m. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Please follow COVID-19 precautions and wear masks.

Emery BIA will also be partnering with 31 Division this holiday season, for our annual holiday toy and food drive. Every year many vulnerable families and children may go without food or toys for the holidays, and we will be collecting toys and non-perishable food items for families in need in our community. Toy donations will be delivered to 31 Division and food donations will be distributed to Weston Emergency Services and North York Harvest Food Bank. In past years, businesses have set up a donation box in their office and we encourage you to do the same. We will be picking up donations between December 5th and 7th, 2022.

We wish you and your loved ones a good start to the winter and holiday season. May the spirit of the season give rise to a healthy, prosperous and happy end of the year.
