Neighbours’ Night Out was a smash this year. The weather was wonderful, and hundreds of people came out to listen to live music, eat, and just hang out.

Neighbours’ Night Out is, if you ask me, one of Weston’s highlights—up there with the Santa Claus Parade. But things keep getting better. This year, I think more community organizations than ever were there: off the top of my head, the WHCD,Frontlines, some weirdos who think that sweating is fun, and Shakespeare in Action. Some great-looking vendors were there, too—but I ran out of time because I talk too much.
This is the 15th annual Neighbour’s Night Out Barbeque! Come down to Elm Street between King St and Church St. from 5:45 PM for this big community celebration! Burgers and hot dogs including a drink are available for just $2, while supplies last, and there will be plenty of fun for the whole family! Click here for more information!
Frontlines, located at 1844 Weston Road is having a free summer barbeque! Check out the fun activities, grab a free hot dog, burger, or drink, and learn about Frontlines and the great services and resources they offer.

The June Fair was a huge success. The weather was perfect, and hundreds of people turned out. There were bouncy castles, hamburgers from Zeal Burger, and great games and prizes. On a melancholy note, both Ms Madarasz and Ms Sestito announced their retirements.
The Queens’ Drive (and neighbourhood) annual garage sale was awesome, as usual, today.

Seniors will reflect on the past, present and future through a variety of arts including collage-making, illustrations, mixed media painting and photography. All workshops will be facilitated by a trained arts professional. The program will culminate in an exhibition that will be open to the public and feature the works created by the seniors alongside portraits taken by youth throughout the project.
