The Guild Festival Theatre Needs Our Financial Support
As many know the financial stability of the Theatre is currently in a precarious state due to the loss of its key sponsor. Progress has been made in the Theatre's request for support.  Ongoing fundraising efforts have continued to be positive.  Under my direction the City is also stepping forward. The City's Culture division and Theatre are now working together to form a partnership.  They have been actively working with the goal to have the production run this summer, and well into the future. The Guild Festival Theatre is an asset to the park's revitalization and entire city! It brings theatre goers to Scarborough to experience live theatre in a beautiful park setting.

The Guild Festival Theatre is a registered charity and non-profit organization which is a jewel in our community.  Performances have been held in the Guild Park and Gardens Greek Amphitheatre since 2011.  Although strides have been made to support the theatre group support is still needed.  If you would like to contribute in helping the theatre please click here for more information.

Guildwood Junior Public School is collecting dead batteries!
As posted on their Facebook page Guildwood Junior Public School is asking for your participation in their participation in the Ontario Schools Battery Recycling Challenge.  To bring awareness to the importance to recycling batteries.  The program compliments the schools eco-platinum which has been running for 8 years in conjunction with their environmental curriculum. Students are asking neighbours and friends to look around their junk drawers, empty the jar you have in your garage or basement, and bring them either to Valu-Mart, the Guildwood Public Library or to our school on Livingston Road. If you can’t make it to drop off, we have parent volunteers who will come to you. PM me and I will arrange it.

The top three schools out of 125 schools will receive a percentage of money raised. This challenge will also help support SickKids Foundation. For more information about the challenge, check out Thank you to everyone for helping the environment and supporting Guildwood Junior Public School!!
