August in Richmond Hill

It has been a great summer in Richmond Hill. There has been great summer weather, and lots of outdoor activities to take in. On top of all this we have the excitement of the Olympics – Go Canada Go!

I will be hosting my 3rd Annual Ward 4 BBQ on August 23rd at Larrat Lea Park near the corner of Shaftsbury Avenue and Brookside Drive (details below). At this year’s BBQ, We have an expanded community information area to share the many things that happen in our community, and we also have a number of fun actives planned for kids and families. It is a great opportunity to meet our neighbours and have fun at the same time. I hope that you can come out to join us.

Thanks for taking the time to read this newsletter. I always appreciate hearing from you regarding any issue in the town. It is through this collaboration that we all make our community the vibrant and active place that it is! Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email at any time. My email address is [email protected], my cell number is 416-346-3090 and my office number is 905-771-2480.
