June 16: 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!
