St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Association 40th Anniversary Celebration:
February 14, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. - St. Lawrence Hall, 157 King St. E., 3rd Floor, Grand Ballroom
Last weekend hundreds of residents and visitors to the St. Lawrence wrote wonderful love letters to the neighbourhood at the SLNA booth in the St. Lawrence Market. We want to thank all those who took the time to share their appreciation for the people, the vendors, the heritage buildings and the St. Lawrence neighourhood as a whole.
There will be another opportunity to write letters to the St. Lawrence at the Jamii Letter Writing Workshop on February 11th at the Jamii Hub on The Esplanade (see story below) and at our upcoming official 40th Anniversary celebration at St. Lawrence Hall on February 14th from 10 am to 1 p.m.
The St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Association was incorporated on February 14, 1983 so on February 14th we will celebrate 40 YEARS of residents volunteering to serve and advocate on behalf of their neighbours for the benefit of this communitiy and the historic heart of Toronto.
