BLT Food Truck Fest

Food Truck

It was only a year ago that Bob Angus organized a food truck rally in our community, but it feels oddly like an eternity when we didn't have to social distance and or wear a mask when we meet in groups. As I look through pictures of events in our community, you truly don't appreciate what you have until it's gone.

BLT Canada Day

For over twenty years, I have sat on community groups and helped kick start many iconic events in our community. From simply picking up garbage on Earth Day in BLT or Belchers Marsh Park with the Friends of Clayton Park to founding larger events like our BLT Canada Day celebrations, I have always enjoyed contributing with the simple goal that we can have amazing events without leaving our community.

Covid-19 has rewritten the playbook on how our community celebrates, but it hasn't stopped our community spirit. As a long-standing volunteer in our community, I want to bring the experience I have of being a community leader to the council and take on the new challenges that Covid-19 present to bring back these celebrations that allow our communities and residents to unite.

    Raissa from Iain Rankin’s office was also a big help. I couldn’t have done it all on my own. Only two people contributed financially- the two -Iain and Ian. It was estimated by the Food Truck participants that close to 3000 residents attended the biggest ever event ever held in our BLT Area. I guess we all love a party, where friends can share stories and make up for lost time.
    I hope that you John Bignell, can fill the ‘communication void’ we have experienced in District 12 , over the last 4 Municipal years. Your current community involvement hasn’t stopped, since the last Municipal Election.
