I've arranged for trees at Dieppe Park and the East York Civic Centre to be decorated with holiday lights.
Paula Fletcher has a long record of service to Toronto-Danforth residents. She first became involved as a leader in the East End Parent Network and was then elected as the TDSB Trustee in 2000. Paula was elected as City Councillor for the former Ward 30 in 2003 and has served as Councillor since. She was re-elected in 2018 and again in 2022 to represent Ward 14 Toronto-Danforth.
About Ward 14
Ward 14 Toronto-Danforth is home to many residential and commercial neighbourhoods that teem with activity and energy, including the Danforth, Leslieville, East York, Riverdale, Riverside, East Chinatown, Gerrard India Bazaar and GreekTown. With over 106,000 residents, Ward 14 extends from the Don Valley Parkway to Coxwell Ave and from Lake Ontario to just north of O'Connor Drive.
We are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaty signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
Join me for the annual Withrow Park Tree Lighting Ceremony on Thursday, November 30th starting at 5:30 p.m.
There will be live performances, a visit from Santa and plenty more festive cheer thanks to our friends from Riverdale Share!
We'll also be collecting non-perishable food items to support our local food banks.
