Heritage Toronto Tour - June 6Did you know that our Flatiron building (the one in our neighbourhood!), was built 10 years before NYC’s and was the HQ of the biggest distillery in the British Empire. Its spirited traditions continue as it is now home to a Firkin Pub.
This is just some of the information to be shared during Heritage Toronto's "Creating Toronto" tour sponsored by the SLNA and happening this Thursday, June 6, 6:30 p.m. starting at the meeting point - Market Lane Park (149 King St. East). The Tour is free but donations are welcomed.

Toronto Centre Cyclists Event - June 9
All are invited to join Toronto Centre Cyclists this Bike Month as they ride up the Don Valley Trail to Taylor Creek Park and then back to meet at C’est What on Front Street. The route was chosen because it was a favourite of some of Toronto's cycling icons.
