Friends of Trinity Bellwoods' General Meeting

When: Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 7-8:30pm
Where: Trinity Recreation Centre on Crawford, 2nd floor landing
Meeting Chair: Sian Owen

ALL WELCOME

Sian, who's volunteered to be our trusty Chairperson for the next few Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park General Meetings, is looking for your input in advance of the meeting on July 23rd.

Specifically, she's looking for feedback from everyone about the park and its use, ie: what's good, what's a drag -- it's a check-in opportunity.

In her walks around the park she's come across caterers who want to help on FoTBP's Park Days, and dog owners who want to hold a fund-raiser for something in the bowl (not a fountain). She's found that all were stunned at how the park has so little financial support from the city with many offering help. 

She's looking to get the word out that there ways our park neighbors and users can find common ground to help improve the park and the park experience for all of us.

So far the top-line Agenda items for the meeting include:

-Fireworks in the park
-Donation Stations
-Bike Valet at the market
-Movie Nights in the Park
-Activities for Fall Park Day 2014

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Send us your feedback about the park:  What's good, what's a drag?

Tree Tour in our Park this week

FoTBP is pleased to co-sponsor this tree tour in our park led by the knowledgeable folks at LEAF.  How can we make better use of our urban wood? Join us on this tour to hear from local arborists and woodworkers who are trying to do just that! You’ll hear the story of one big maple tree that fell during the ice storm, and see how it’s been transformed into a live edge bench by a local woodworker. Plus, you’ll learn how pests like the Emerald Ash Borer impact our urban forest – and what this means for woodworkers.

FoTBP's own Adopt-A-Tree Coordinator, Laura Jamer, is co-leading the tour and will speak about the program.

Tour Leaders:

Andrew Baughn, Eco Tree Co.
Adam Dalgarno, Rusted Maple Carpentry and Design
Laura Jamer, Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park
Erin MacDonald, LEAF
