Many things are happening this weekend and next week.

In Situ event is now on

1) A reminder first of all that the In Situ event at the Small Arms Building in Mississauga is now on:

In Situ Multi Arts Festival at the Small Arms Building, Oct. 27 to 29, 2016

I draw inspiration from what is happening in Mississauga:

Is it time to set up a Long Branch expat community in Mississauga? Maybe it’s already been started.

2) In the event you have not yet sent a letter to the Committee of Adjustment regarding 14 Villa Road, please do so; doesn’t matter where you live; please do send in a letter.

A personalized letter of about one-and-a-half pages or so is probably the best, but a form or template letter works well also. Details regarding where to send your message are at the following post:

Lot Splitting & Committee of Adjustment (14 Villa Road Template Letter)

Please also encourage your friends and neighbours to write letters and turn up on Nov. 3 (please see below).

This is an issue that concerns so many of us.

The more networking we do among ourselves, the more we spread the word far and wide -even far beyond Long  Branch – the better it is for all of us.

It is vitally important that we make our voices heard, in all of the ways that are available to us in a civil society.

Please attend the Nov. 3 (5:00 pm) Committee meeting at the Etobicoke Civic Centre

Please make every effort to attend the Nov. 3, 2016 Committee meeting at 5:00 pm at the Etobicoke Civic Centre. Your presence at the meeting (just being there) will make a huge difference for us!
