Celebrate the Junction events:

Toronto Library Community Day — Saturday, September 10, 1 to 4 pm

The Annette Street Library is setting up a tent for an impromptu community day.  Your JRA, as well as the West Toronto Junction Historical Society and others, will be participating with a JRA booth.  Your JRA executive team will be on hand to talk all things Junction.  We will also be conducting some community planning activities that you can participate in, as we did last year with Activity Mapping.

Last year, the Arts Festival boosted our membership numbers substantially, so we’ll really miss that opportunity this year.  If you are one of those who joined during last year’s Festival, then your one-year membership is up for renewal next month.  Please stop by the Library on Sept. 10 and renew your membership ($10 a person), or take out a new one — support the work of your JRA!

JRA Members Meeting on September 8

Your next JRA meeting will be on Thursday, September 8 at 7 pm.

The meeting is at the West Toronto Baptist Church, 3049 Dundas Street West.  Come out, meet your neighbours and help shape the Junction by getting involved.
