JRA Community Meeting, Thursday, May 9, 7 to 9pm
Your next JRA Community Meeting will be held this Thursday. It’s our last community meeting until September, so don’t miss out.
Our preliminary agenda items include Function in the Junction update, Emerald Ash Borer campaign update and our guest speaker, Rohit Chauhan, the new St. John’s Tim Hortons franchisee.
The meeting is at the West Toronto Baptist Church, 3049 Dundas Street West. Come out, meet your neighbours and help shape the Junction by getting involved.
All members of the public are welcome. If you are a potential JRA member (you live within our official boundaries), consider bringing along $10 for a JRA membership card showing one year of support. The more paid members we can claim, the more influence we can wield when negotiating with government and business!
Emerald Ash Borer / Urban Forest Project in Ward 13, Thursday, May 9, 7pm
Call for volunteers! Our tree canopy is being seriously challenged with several problems simultaneously. One of the most pressing problems is the assault on all our ash trees (860,000 across Toronto) by the Emerald Ash Borer, an insect which is thought to have arrived in North America in packing crates around 2002. Green 13 is looking for volunteers to address this challenge. Free training specific to the EAB problem and to identification of ash trees will be provided to volunteers thanks to LEAF. On Thursday, May 9, at 7:00 pm, volunteers are meeting at Annette Branch Library (145 Annette Street). To identify if you have an ash tree, please see the following document.
