Area Police Warning/Community Grants

Through the media yesterday, we learned the Toronto Police Service issued a warning to the area of Sheppard Ave and Don Mills Rd. due to several recent street robberies. Residents are advised to avoid isolated areas, not to travel alone if possible and to be aware of their surroundings and suspicious people. The robbery spree suspects are decribed as one or two men in their early teens to mid-twenties, medium build, dark clothing.

On a different note:The Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation has opened its community grants program for 2005. Grants are available to Community Organizations registered with Revenue Canada as charities in the amount of $1000 to $2500. Projects must take place on Toronto parkland and must improve the park experience. Past projects include: park plantings, flower box and container additions, annual clean-ups, story telling programs, river clearings, tree plantings, environmental presentations, art shows. Call Jenny or Collette at 416-392-4038 to get the brochure sent out to your organization. The application deadline is March 31st.
