President's Message

Happy New Year Centennial!

It’s winter in Centennial.  I’m excited to toboggan in Adam’s Park and on “Big Jake”, the hill behind Charlottetown JPS.  Mark your calendars for Winterfest, Saturday January 28th, 11am-3pm at the Port Union Community Centre.  CCRA is pleased to be one of the events sponsors. This year will feature a dog show, ball hockey, entertainment and more. We hope to see you there.

CCRA has some big goals for 2017.  Our volunteers are watching the Scarborough Waterfront Trail and Metrolinx third rail environmental assessments closely. We will continue to provide news about these important local issues in our newspaper, and will provide feedback into the public consultation process at every opportunity.

In 2017, we would like to increase the number of members that we have. We are in need of a membership chair to join our team and manage our database. More

Fosters and their adopted families are great ambassadors for rescue

By Linda Striemer

Receiving Christmas cards is one of the highlights of the season for me. It’s so nice to hear from friends and relatives you haven’t seen much of in the preceding year. And there is always the promise of “we must meet up” and the renewed determination to make it happen. More

Outdoor fun at Port Union Community Winterfest

After December’s holiday rush, it may be tempting to stay indoors for the rest of the winter, dreaming of warmer months ahead. Happily, there’s no need for that in Centennial. More

Tales from the mural - The Annis House

The Annis family first arrived in America and settled in Massachusetts in 1670. Descendant Charles Annis arrived in Upper Canada in 1793 and settled between Whitby and Oshawa. During 1808, he moved his family to Scarborough and settled on Lot 16, Concession C and D. His son Jerimiah’s 1867 stone house still exists on the north side of Kingston Road, east of Golf Club Road, as The Olde Stone Cottage Pub. More
