Happy New Year! I hope 2011 is off to a great start for you.
the Legislature is not sitting, I am able to spend some more time in
the riding and am looking forward to meeting with constituents and
touching base on local issues over the next few weeks.
months following the holidays are always a busy time! I have several
local events coming up in the community and I hope you will be able to
join me for them.
First, my New Year’s Levee is set for
Saturday, January 15th, from 1 to 3 PM. We will be at the Toronto
Botanical Garden at 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). This is my 8th
annual levee and it is always a great time to reconnect – come join us
and let me know what you’re thinking about all things political. Our
federal member, Rob Oliphant, is co-hosting the levee, so you can see us
both at the same time.
On February 17th, you are all invited to my All-Politicians’ Town Hall.
This is the annual opportunity to hear from and speak to all the
government representatives for Don Valley West – provincial, federal,
municipal and school board. This year’s town hall will be at the
Canadian National Institute for the Blind at 1929 Bayview Ave from 7 to 9
Also mark your calendars for my annual Opportunities Fair
on February 26th (2 to 4 PM) – an event that brings employment resource
information directly to Don Valley West residents – and the March Break Skating Party
on March 16th (2 to 4 PM). The Opportunities Fair will be at the Dennis
Timbrell Resource Centre (29 St. Dennis Dr.) and the skating party is
at the Angela James Arena (165 Grenoble Dr.).
Finally, my office is accepting nominations for our annual Volunteer Service Award!
If there is someone who you feel makes an outstanding contribution to
the community through their volunteer work, please send your nomination
to my community office at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28th.
Legislature resumes on February 22nd and I can say it’s going to be a
busy period. We face plenty of challenges as we continue to climb out of
the economic downturn, but I’m optimistic that the numbers are all
moving in the right direction.
I hope to see many of you in the
coming months at your events and ours. Please contact me at any time if
you have questions or concerns about the work the provincial government
is doing on your behalf.
All the very best, Kathleen
