There’s no excuses for boredom over the next couple of weeks. A ton of things are going on!
The Community Place Hub will be hosting its Fall Festival on September 13 from 3 to 7 pm.
Colin Mendez Morris will be performing “Joshua Glover: The Opera” in Little Avenue Park. The opera tells the story of Glover, a slave who was freed, recaptured, and imprisoned before coming to Etobicoke. It is part of the Arts in the Parks Series.
Pearson Airport is the second largest employment zone in the GTA and working there is a natural fit for Weston and Mount Dennis residents since it’s a short hop away via the UP Express..
Air Canada is advertising full-time jobs for people who can lift repetitively, are able to work nights and who also possess a G or G2 driver’s licence. The starting pay is minimum wage but they pay benefits, pay for training and provide employees with career development plans.
Interviews will be held on Thursday, September 5 beginning at 10:00 am at 2150 Islington Avenue. Apparently it’s first come, first served.
Lots to do in August! This weekend is UrbanArts’ CultureShock Festival in their new digs at Weston Common.
Today, and every Friday until the end of the summer, Frontlines is hosting Beats in the Streets.
The Weston King Neighbourhood Centre (WKNC) will be hosting a weekly Talking Circle starting Wednesday, August 14. The circle will run from 2:00-4:00 pm at 2017 Weston Road.
The weekly Talking Circle will be Indigenous-led and resourced, but all are welcome. This will be a safe space to share, to connect and to learn.
This will be the first in a series of Reconciliation events for the local community. WKNC encourages others to join in with this initiative. For more information, please contact Ken at WKNC, at [email protected] or 416 241-9898.
Volunteers will also be adding mulch around native trees and shrubs in Eglinton Flats on August 14, between 10 and 12.
Sorry for the late notice—I only found out myself (thanks, E and M!)
There’ll be dance in Little Avenue Park today at 7 pm.
Three short dances evoke matters of the heart: healthy and connected living and a feeling of community and belonging. ‘Heart’ is choreographed by the award-winning artists Karen and Allen Kaeja, of Kaeja d’Dance.
