The following announcement comes from Michael Monastyrskyj, regarding the updated kitchen facilities and June 14th campfire at Campbell Park:

Hello everybody,

Thanks to strong support from ward 18 councillor Ana Bailao and her executive assistant Braden Root-McCaig, Campbell Park's rinkhouse/clubhouse has a new kitchen with sinks, running water and a stove. This lets us expand our menu at the winter snackbar and cook food for community events.

To celebrate the new kitchen, Campbell staff would like to invite everybody to a dinner and campfire at the park. Come join us 6:30-10pm Tuesday June 14. We will be a serving a main dish for a suggested donation of $5 and desert for $1. We ask for the donation to cover costs, but we don't want anyone to go away hungry. Give as much or as little as you like. After dinner, roast marshmallows over the fire. And if you have a guitar, bring it along!

Blog T.O. Review: Angel's Cafe

Excerpt from Blog T.O.:

Angel's Cafe is a little family-run coffee shop in the heart of the Junction Triangle. Angel works as a programmer by day and Matilda is a paralegal. The couple runs the small coffee shop, which is attached to the home they share with their two kids, after they come home from work and keep it open until 10 p.m. I was tired just listening to Matilda describe her day, but she seemed happy and committed to keeping the community hub going.

"When you don't have family here, you have to look to your community. That's why this is so important."
