Picnic in the Park: Highlights and Acknowledgements


Summer is now officially in full swing, and – mark your calendars! -- we are already planning our 20th August Fun Day! Before we’re completely lost in another round of event planning, however, we’d like to take time once again to acknowledge those individuals, groups and businesses who supported our Picnic in the Park in April.

Picnic in the Park was a huge success, not only in terms of meeting the fundraising goal of the Leith Walk PTC, but in bringing together two local groups to work together for the benefit of the community, not to mention hosting a really fun day for all! It was a pleasure working together, and we hope to do it again!

It’s amazing to note how many people helped in so many ways, both in the planning stages and on the day. Please take a moment to scan this list and in particular to acknowledge those businesses and local groups who helped us raise money for our neighbourhood school and park. We are all deeply grateful for the generous support of the following:
