Spring in Woodfield!
AGM, April 19 at 6:30, Bishop Cronyn Church
This year, we're moving the AGM to Bishop Cronyn Memorial Church at the corner of William and Queen! Why the move? A year ago, when the church was looking for tenants to take over the historic space, a deal was struck between the church and Clark Bryan, executive director and founder of the Aeolian Hall, to lease the space to El Sistema, a free UNESCO award winning music program for children and youth. To welcome our new neighbours to the community, we wanted members to learn more about the program and meet Clark, who is our special guest speaker this year!
This is a Voting Year! Most of the members of the current executive have agreed to stay on for the coming term. However, if someone would like to stand for a specific position at the AGM, let us know by April 9 and we will add your name to the nominations.
Also at the AGM we will recognize our Neighbour of the Year for 2016! Nominations welcome! Email email@example.com. We'll also announce the Woodfield Streetscape Improvement Awards.
Again this year we are launching a membership drive! A robust membership count is important not only as an indication of community engagement but more members means we have a louder voice on issues impacting our neighbourhood. So renew or sign up for the first time! The cost of a lifetime membership per household is $50 and a 4-year membership expiring December 31, 2020 costs $5.
Spring Plant Exchange, May 20
Spring is here and that means the 22nd Annual Woodfield Plant Sale and Exchange will happen Saturday, May 20. Skip breakfast and treat yourself to coffee, a tasty breakfast sandwich or baked goods while you browse the beautiful selection of plants that your neighbours have dug up and donated to share and spread to new gardens. As usual there’ll be compost, mulch, annuals, perennials and native trees from Trees for Woodfield. Come early for a great selection.
Summer Porch Concerts
Dave and Denice, organizers of the incredible porch concerts last summer, are looking for locations for this coming summer! Send David an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), with your address, a general description of your availability for June and July, and an idea of music genres you like! They are looking to book the June shows asap, and will be looking at July/August a bit later. If you have room on your porch/lawn for the performers need and the audience, email Dave! He provides the Port-a-potty and sound engineer and all gear. Great fun!
That's it for now!
