York Memorial information meeting

From The Star.com

This Sunday morning, January 12, a question and answer session will be held to provide clarity on the current state of affairs at York Memorial Collegiate which burned down in May last year. Students are continuing their studies in temporary accommodation in Etobicoke. Shortly after the fire, Toronto Council passed a non-binding resolution to re-build the school.

The meeting will provide residents with a Q&A on topics including,

  • Future plans for the site and respect for its heritage
  • Current impacts on student population, and efforts to mitigate those issues
  • The investigation, its findings, and clarity on lingering rumours
  • Effects on local businesses and what support is available to them

Councillor Nunziata, MPP Hassan and Trustee Tonks will attend.

Where: York Council Chambers,
2700 Eglinton Avenue West
Time: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Toastmasters is coming to Weston / Mount Dennis.

From inc.com.

Would you like to improve your public speaking skills and your confidence in front of others? Toastmasters is an organization that helps people do just that. They hold weekly meetings where participants perform fun exercises with the goal of becoming more confident in social situations.

According to an old survey, most people fear public speaking more than death itself. Toastmasters can help with that.

A brand new Weston / Mount Dennis branch of Toastmasters is opening on January 23 at 7:00 at the Artscape Weston Hub – 34 John Street. Meetings last 90 minutes and are held weekly.
