The residents of Aitken Circle, Roverdale Court and Birchview Lane rejoiced on Sunday, November 12th. Neighbours came together to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday by planting a tree at the entrance to Toogood Pond Park. The initiative, led by Debbie Dasios, Ernesta Rossi and Victoria Walseth was funded by the City of Markham’s Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant Program. Unionville Ward 3 Councillor Don Hamilton and Nory Takata, a Parks Planner with the City of Markham, joined the festivities.
