Volunteers from the York West Active Living Centre spent yesterday morning cleaning up the gardens at the Weston Library to prepare for Doors Open Toronto, which happens this weekend. For the first time (that I can remember) a building in Weston is on the tour. The Weston Public Library is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
The YWALC also announced summer job openings for two students between 15 and 30. Click on the attachment below for the details.
The school board will be holding a community meeting at St John the Evangelist school on Tuesday, December 6th at 7pm.
Agenda – The board will be updating our community on all temporary accommodation options for students considered by staff.
CSAC will have a table in the Gym to help answer concerns and to gather more emails in an effort to advocate for a replacement school, not just an addition to our 1953 building which already has an addition.

COMMUNITY MEETING ABOUT ART IN WESTON and MOUNT DENNIS! Dec 9 2010 Time: 3:30-5:30pm
Neighbourhood Arts Toronto
The community meeting is our stepping off point where we will ask questions and learn more about Weston and Mt. Dennis’ creative scene. The meeting will be a good opportunity for participants to hear more about what’s happening in their local area and will help us better understand how people value the arts. There will be food and we promise to make it fun!
Place: Weston Library, 2 King Street
We want to know:
How do people participate in the arts? By this we mean all kinds of art forms including music, dance, spoken word, media arts, poetry, visual arts, hip hop, theatre, crafts, photography, painting, murals and mash ups of all the above.
What goes on in places dedicated to the arts like galleries and theatres but also what gets created in homes, courtyards, church basements, community centres, common rooms, parks and alleys?
How do people hear about what’s going on in Weston and Mt.Dennis?
Where are new ideas coming from?
Who are the people making things happen in Weston and Mt.Dennis?
What is Weston and Mt. Dennis’s best kept creative secret?
We’re organizing a community meeting because we want to meet:
People who attend arts events in Weston and Mt.Dennis and/or in other parts of the city
People who participate in arts projects or create their own work and enjoy the arts for the love of it
Professional artists who live and/or work in Weston and Mt.Dennis
Artists who have recently moved to Canada and have made Weston and Mt.Dennis their home
Anyone who lives and/or works in Weston and Mt.Dennis and is interested in creative activities in the neighbourhood
