Welcome to Curran Hall!
Thank you to John Barrett, a long time Curran Hall resident for joining me at the unveiling of the new “Welcome to Curran Hall Community” community sign located on the southeast corner of Orton Park Road and Ellesmere Road. I have been receiving many positive remarks on the signs. (The other one is located at the northeast corner of Orton Park Road and Lawrence Ave East!).
