I will be implementing a “WEEKEND UPDATE” at the beginning of each Calendar Posting.  This will fill you in on postings, news, and contest reminders from the week!

Sadly I am not funny like The SNL News Anchors but I figured it’s a cute picture to put up, right?

I announced yesterday that there will be another HOLIDAY PARTY happening on Friday, December 4, 2015 from 3pm-5pm at VIBE DANCE STUDIO in Thornhill.

This event is geared for adult shopping, however there will be a lot of things for kids to do, and an option of Supervised Babysitting so you can shop in peace.

There will be SWAG BAGS for each Kid’s Early Bird Ticket Purchased! The SWAG bags are valued at $40 and growing!

I will be adding new vendors and entertainment daily.

It will be a fun AFTER SCHOOL activity 🙂

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

NEVILLE-LAKE-FAMILY

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS TO OUR

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!
