The Mount Dennis Community Association is the lead organizer for several events each year, but we also participate as partners or attendees with other groups. The best way to stay updated on our events and attend is by joining our email list.
If there are any local community events you would like to let us know about, please email us at email@example.com!
spring clean up
The yearly MDCA spring clean-up is a series of community volunteer events that takes place throughout April/May. We invite members of the community to join us on walks and pick up as much garbage as we can to help keep Mount Dennis beautiful. Some events are held in conjunction with community partners, so if your group wants to get involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
party by the pond
Since 2012, the MDCA has hosted a Family Fishing Week event called “Party by the Pond”. We invite the community to enjoy the beautiful green space and nature within Eglinton Flats, participate in activities such as fishing, and enjoy food and entertainment provided by local food businesses and artists. We hope to resume in 2022.
During the winter months, Pearen Park was transformed into an outdoor ice rink built and maintained by volunteers. Members of the public were welcome to bring their own skates and make use of the rink. Over the years many learned to skate on this rink and used the free skates and hockey sticks available to borrow from the Skate Hut. Warmer winters and COVID have caused a suspension, and regretfully it is unlikely to return.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The MDCA hosts an annual general meeting (AGM) where we invite residents to learn about our work and other neighbourhood efforts, and overall celebrate our wonderful community. The AGM is also the once-per-year opportunity to join our board. We usually hosts our AGM late November. Please email us at email@example.com or call 416-614-3371 to learn more.
Jane’s Walk are free, locally organized walking tours, in which people get together to explore, talk about and celebrate their community. We usually organize a walk on the Jane’s Walk Festival Weekend, in May. Our Mount Dennis walks focus on historical sites and the natural beauty of the area. It is a fun stroll in the neighbourhood that can also be very informative, as we invite guest speakers or visit sites not open to the public. Although MDCA does not host a walk every year, there are that do, typically listed at the Jane’s Walk website. https://janeswalk.org/
The MDCA has (co)hosted many partnered events to increase civic engagement and community building within Mount Dennis. Some past events included election debates, a Multicultural Forum, town halls on education, safety, and feral cats.
Candidates, Cabinet Ministers, Trustees, and business leaders are frequent guests at our events. For any collaborations/partnerships, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
