BBQ and AGM, Thursday, May 24, starting at 6 PM at Orchard Park Public School
Looking forward to summer? Start it off with the neighbourhood BBQ followed by our annual general meeting. There will be burgers and hot dogs. This is a rain or shine event as we will have pop up tents. There will be display boards with information about the upcoming development that will be taking place on the former Sherwood Forest School site. City staff will speak at the AGM about how planning for the park will take place. Councillor Squire will give a city hall update and take your questions. Representatives from Western will be in attendance to talk about the university’s open space and car free plans as well as take questions about student rental issues.
We are looking for people to help, specifically with clean up after the BBQ. If you don’t mind missing part of the AGM or aren’t staying for the AGM, please let the chefs at the BBQ know you are available to help with clean up.
Also, we are looking for pictures and recollections and stories of the neighbourhood. The area was first developed about 60 years ago and we have already started a collection of photos and the original sales brochure for the area. Please send your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be posted to a Google doc we are setting up.
Two prowlers were reported in the area of Wychwood and Friar’s Way this week. It was reported to the police. If you do see anything out of the ordinary, it is fine to call the police to report it. It does influence how the police schedule patrols
