Glabar Park Community Garage Sale – Saturday, June 6

Once again it is time to share with our community those well-loved treasures that you are no longer showing the appreciation that they rightly deserve. This is the opportunity for the community to search for bargains and to cherish these treasures as others have.

On June 6th, the GPCA will be hosting the annual neighborhood garage sale. Once again the GPCA will be organizing a “garage”. This year volunteers from the DRK School Council will be joining the GPCA with proceeds going to support their fundraising efforts for a play structure at DRK. The community “garage” will be at Kingsmere Park beginning at 7:30 am.

If you have items that you would like to donate towards our community “garage” please contact Michael Nadon (Michael.Nadon@aadnc-aandc.gc.ca). Donated items may also be dropped-off at the park on June 6th. Please stop by to meet your GPCA members.

Benjamin Street Block Party – Saturday, June 6 From 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm on June 6th,

Benjamin Avenue between Hare and Kingsmere will be closed to traffic to host a block party. See the enclosed article or contact Norm MacNeil at nmacneil@rogers.com for more information.

Fools in the Park – Glabar Park Common – Tuesday, July 14

A Company of Fools will be returning to our community this summer! Barring unforeseen issues they will be in Glabar Park Common on Tuesday July 14th.

This summer “the Fools” are celebrating their 25th year with a remount of the play that started it all for them – “A Comedy of Errors.”
