Party in the Park – 2010

Party in the Park came back to Healey Willan Park on June 6, organized by the Healey Willan Improvement Project (a local community parents’ group) and supported by PARA. Close to 300 parents and children from the neighbourhood and beyond passed through the park throughout the day, which raised $1400 in support of improvements to the playground. Kiddies got their faces painted and splashed in the newly painted wading pool. A bake sale, BBQ, music and a visiting fire truck rounded out the day.

The organizers paid special thanks to the helpful volunteers and to Gaucho Gourmet (for their donation of sausages), Mirvish Productions, Red Pegasus, the Knit Café, The Paper Place, Kid Brother, the Teri Parker Trio, Heinz, Weston Bakery, Costco, Annex Academy of Music, The Bike Joint and Hersh and Marni Perlis for their help.
