York West executive director Suzanne Texiera brought the program together to bridge the cultural and generational gap that kept Frontlines and York West worlds apart, even though they were neighbours.
“It was important to have these two populations meet and dance to break down any stereotypes that they may have of each other and to build a friendship that extends beyond the dance floor,” she says.
Weston’s Santa Claus Parade will be Sunday, November 25 at 2 p.m.–and it’s sure to be great. This is the 40th anniversary of the best little Santa Claus parade in Toronto.
The BIA hopes you will volunteer or participate.
Frontlines will also be hosting their second annual holiday brunch. Tickets are between $10 and $25.
If, like me, you forgot that your kids have the summer off, it’s not too late to keep them busy with something other than nightcrawler harvesting and Amazon warehousing.
The city has a few spots available in CR Marchant’s day camps. Grab them while you can!
UrbanArts also has limited spots in their summer arts camp.
If, on the other hand, your kids are more into STEM, Frontlines has that, and several other other camps, available this summer.
Frontlines has won a $20,000 grant from Epicure.org.

The grant was awarded based on votes from the community, and will go towards supporting their youth culinary skills program, for those aged 18–29.
Frontlines hopes you’ll vote for them to receive a $20,000 grant for their Frontburners youth kitchen.
Frontburners helps young people from 18-29 learn with “hands-on training in the kitchen, in-class instruction and food handling training and assist them with finding employment”. Participants also cook for the kids from 6-12 in the after-school programs, and “facilitate workshops to teach them about meal preparation and healthy eating”.
Frontlines has really been knocking it out of the park with their culinary skills programs. This week, they catered the local politician’s Holiday Open House (and they would be delighted to cater for your holiday event, too).
Thank you once again to @FrontlinesTO for having us during the Holiday Open House. What a great turnout and a chance for residents in the area to meet with their local government representatives. @Laura_Albanese @AhmedDHussen #ward11 #ysw #Weston pic.twitter.com/m94OJbPkd0

Frontlines will be having a 30th anniversary celebration on April 22. A few tickets are still available, and I can tell you from experience that it’s a great evening. Tickets are available here.
