First, Adam Vaughan is hosting a community walk, tomorrow, July 10 that starts at Vermont Square Park at 11:30-1:30.
If you are interested, you can call Adam’s office or just show up on Palmerston Avenue, near the playground.
Secondly, the Park Renewal Committee and the City are making progress on the selection of a design consultant for the park. The deadline for submissions was July 8. Now the city (together with three reps from the neighbourhood) will be selecting a firm. Expect news about the selection by about August 10.
Third, in a few weeks we are going to be posting an ad for some administrative support for the SVRA. The position may involve an honorarium, or some other form of compensation. The post will be right here on this website. We are looking for someone who can develop and maintain an excel membership list over at least 12 months, plus someone who can coordinate volunteers. If you have any early ideas contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, mark August 25 6pm in your calendar! The plan is to have a ‘Sing Thing’ – a marching, singing party from outside Scoop and Bean to the Vermont Square Park. Wind instruments, brass, percussion, even pots and pans are all welcome. The main song for the marching band will be “When the Saints Go Marching In,” so start practicing! More detail will be posted in the area and online in August.
