What: Following a short presentation about the community improvement project, the children will make suggestions, discuss the ideas and vote for their favourite name.
Where: Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club (Perth Outreach location) 120 Perth Avenue, Toronto (Bloor & Dundas West) When: Tuesday, July 14, 2009 10:30 a.m.
