Bravo To The Butt Pickers

May 5, 2019

Yesterday, a group of community volunteers performed their annual clean up of Grandview Park by picking up and disposing of more than 21,000 cigarette butts, several thousand more than last year.

The organizer Alexandria Weiderman notes that alleviating the environmental hazards posed by the toxins in the butts is just as important as the beautification the program brings us.

Thanks to the volunteers for doing this, and thanks to the CBC for covering it.

Happy Anniversary GHG!

May 5, 2019

Today is the 8th anniversary of the founding of the Grandview Heritage Group (GHG).

The GHG website has become the go-to place for anyone interested in the 100+year history of our wonderful neighbourhood, and the group has made enormous strides in its mission: to identify, preserve, and celebrate our local heritage.  The monthly meetings are always interesting, and it has been exciting to watch new people come into the group and keep it lively.

Well done everyone concerned and we look forward to more exciting work as we move into the future.
