I’ll have more information about this event.
Etobicoke-Lakeshore MPP (and Minister of Education) Laurel Broten distributed the Gems of the Lakeshore certificates and awards.
Three judges were also at the table on the stage, helping out with proceedings.
Such an event serves to highlight the work of independent businesses on the Lakeshore, as well as the work of community and service organizations.
Events such as the May 7, 2012 meeting at the Assembly Hall serve two main purposes.
They are great for (a) networking and (b) celebration of the great work that people are doing in the community.
I’m delighted that I had the opportunity to attend.
The event helped me to place my own efforts on behalf of the community within the context of all of the other great work that a large number of people are doing, day in and day out, in serving their local community.
