Celebrate Summer / Célébr-été
This Saturday, the first annual Celebrate Summer family fun fair is going on behind the Earl Armstrong Arena. With a never ending list of events you can’t help but have fun. From midway rides to great food, from hours of live concerts to face painting, there’s something for everyone of any age. Founder and Sponsor Councillor Tim Tierney has made sure that this free, day-long event will be something that the entire ward can be proud of. The fun starts at 9 am with a free pancake breakfast. Pancakes will be flipped by Councillor Tierney and the presidents of the community associations from with the Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward. Visit www.beaconhillcyrville.ca/en/celebrate.aspx for a list of events and activities.
The bridge issue is pressing and, at the moment, is in high gear. There are consultation and community value workshops going on around the city over the summer. The list of events will be posted HERE, www.BHCA.ca/issues/the-bridge. WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU about what you want and how you would like to volunteer to help when it comes to the interprovincial bridge. Without your voice this pitting of community vs community will remain just that instead of being a fact-based, objective project. We’re trying to achieve a transparent and fair selection process that takes into account all possible pitfalls and benefits.
For all bridge related issues and to volunteer, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
