July/August Newsletter Delivery Delay

June 28th, 2012

The July/August newsletter will be delivered about a week later than usual, on the week-end of July 7-8.

Here’s why:

The deadline for newsletter submissions was June 15, but there were some important community events that happened in the last two weeks of June: the Ramsay School 100 year celebration (June 22) and the Visioning workshop (June 23).

The newsletter team needed extra time to report on these events and incorporate them into the layout of the July/August issue.

Otherwise you would have to wait until the September issue to read about events that happened in June.

The September newsletter will be delivered at the regular time.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact

2nd Annual Hoe Down for Ward 9 on Wednesday July 4

June 28th, 2012

Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra sends the following invitation to next week’s Hoe Down for Ward 9:

Dear Neighbour,

In my efforts to be a different kind of politician, I’m trying to approach fundraising in a different way.

I’m leery of the ubiquity of $150 events that are attended solely by the development industry. The Ward 9 Hoe Down is my attempt to create an event that everyone can afford to come to, and that is such value for money (and so fun) that everyone wants to come.

I’d be honored if you came to the 2nd Annual Ward 9 Hoe Down with your family, neighbours, friends, and colleagues to celebrate the amazing community we’re so lucky to share.

A great meal, a great concert by T. Buckley, and a ton of fun all for $35 (it’s an Inglewood Party so bring your kids for free).

Thanks for your support and see you next Wednesday!
