CCRA sponsored several great events this summer and the weather certainly cooperated. The Highland Creek Festival, Port Union Waterfront and the Summer Concert series were all well attended. I enjoyed canoeing at the annual Paddle the Rouge event on June 18th featured on page one. I was delighted that Prime Minister Trudeau was there to announce that the Ontario government will be transferring provincial lands to the National Park.
I have been working very hard to launch the Scarborough Community Renewal Organization (SCRO). SCRO is a multi-stakeholder group of community volunteers seeking to Renew Scarborough. We have been busy promoting our message that Scarborough is great place to live, work and play. At RIbfest, we had a map of Scarborough where people could mark their favourite places. I’m proud to tell you that several great spots in Centennial were chosen, including Colonel Danforth Park, the Port Union Waterfront, Adams Park, the hill named “Big Jake” behind Charlottetown JPS and the Port Union Library.
Thanks to a partnership between CCRA, Mural Routes, the Scarborough-based arts organization, and the funding received from the City of Toronto’s StreetARToronto program, we will soon be able to add the Port Union Mural to this list! Make sure to come out for the official unveiling on Thursday, September 8th at 5 pm. More
