Executive Director's message - Oct 2017

The upcoming month of November symbolizes gratitude for and the sacrifice of those who fought in wars for our freedom.

Please join us at Joseph Bannon Park to pay our respects to our veterans at the annual Remembrance Day service on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.

It is located at 65 Mary Chapman Boulevard.

In the upcoming year, we are pleased to pay tribute to soldiers from Emery.

We want to reach out to families to participate in the creation of a living monument that begins at CFB Trenton along Highway 401 to Keele Street. The Highway of Heroes project will plant one tree for each of the two million lives of veterans who have served for Canada and the thousands that gave up their lives to fight for our freedom.

Commemorating and honouring proud Canadians on the Highway of Heroes is our way toward creating a rich culture and tight knit community.

Please email us with information of your loved ones who served or are currently serving; we want to know your stories and experiences and plant a tree in their honour.

Also this year we would like to get an early start toward the holidays and help children in need.

The Toronto Police Service, 31 division is currently holding their annual toy drive. The Auxiliary and Community Response Police Officers will have a drop box located at the front desk of 31 Division police station to collect new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls (ages newborn to 17 years). Located at 40 Norfinch Dr., Toronto. Donations will be accepted until Friday, Dec. 8.

Let’s make this month count and help out.

Have a great month!
