Please Mark your tools with your name.
If you cannot make it but can lend tools, please identify them clearly with your name and address and leave them on the porch of : 87 Woodlawn Ave E. There are always more volunteers than garden tools.
Please note: This volunteer effort has never been missed since it's start in the 1990's. We have registered with the City's Official Clean-up on these dates which has attracted Volunteers from beyond Summerhill Area.
* to help with storm drainage please take a moment to clean up the debris in front of your house so it does not block the sewers and cause flooding.

June 16, 2018: Community Clean Up of Japanese Knotweed
What a successful and productive morning we had. A good number of volunteers (27 people) showed up and with the assistance of very helpful Toronto City Staff we were guided to where we needed to cut down the Japanese Knotweed. With such a dedicated & hardworking bunch of volunteers we cleared the area in one hour. Thank you everyone!
Longtime Summerhill resident Bill Davis was honored recently for many years
of volunteering in our community. For 60 years, Bill has contributed to the
fabric of Summerhill and he has run the Cottingham Girls and Boys club for
longer than most of us remember.
The playground beside Cottingham Public School
was named 'The Bill R Davis Playground' - the perfect choice as Bill has created and run
programs for young children for so many decades. Even Bill's father, a
famous lacrosse player, played sports in this park.
Councillor Josh Matlock came out to assist with the ceremony and many past
and present students and parents joined in the celebration, along with
Bill's wife Velma and family.
We are so grateful for Bill's contributions to our community - and thank
him for all the joy he's given our children and his tireless dedication to
fitness and creativity!
