Applegrove's 3rd Annual Family Dance & Winter Social

Big thanks to our amazing youth volunteers who ran the games; to Jean, Ann, Natasha and Mercedes who welcomed guests and operated the Bank of Apple Grove; to Louise who took care of refreshments; to Janina who took care of all the details; and to Ian who ran the music and emceed our 3rd annual Family Dance and Winter Social!

There are great photos on the SNAPd Facebook page.


start of Punkin'-Grove 2016This was the scene early evening November 1 as Punkins arrived for their special night out! (Thanks to Mary-Margaret McMahon for photo at right.)

More than 50 punkins competed to be the happiest, scariest, artsiest and coolest-teal punkins, as judged by Councillor McMahon, Jean Lim, and Michelle Hedges (Ontario Heritage Trust representative). Thank you for taking on such a difficult task!

And there were at least 15 other punkins watching (as well as a sizable crowd of pumpkin people) when Pierre Bois announced the winners.

At the end of the evening, Aziza from Urban Bulk shared yummy chocolate chip cookies!

Some of the punkins went home, but most met their end in a smashing ceremony at the bin donated by Big Ben's Junk Removal.

See photos of some of the entries below. Thanks to Vai Yu Law, who volunteered her professional photography skills. (Photos below were subsequently cropped.)

Many thanks to everyone who participated and helped to make the event such a success!

Special Workshops: Keeping Our Kids Safe

Talking to children about their bodies and boundaries is extremely important but not always easy. Thank you to Jennifer Katz, from Toronto Public Health, who did two presentations for parents/caretakers in June 2016.
