Have Fun with the Inner City Rec and Wellness Program

With summer on the way, it’s time to put out a call for volunteers for our outdoor activities!

If you like gardening, then you’re in luck! We’ll be busy growing the LIVINGbridge, and taking weekly trips to Lady Flower Garden. The more the merrier!

Have more of an arts thumb? Then Creart is for you! Every Saturday morning at the Parkdale Cromdale Community Hall, there’s free music lessons from 9-1 p.m. Whether you’re a talented musician wishing to share your skills, or someone just starting to learn, you’re more than welcome to join the fun!

Just like last year, Heart of the City Festival will be hosting a concert series in drop-in centres this month. With a line-up of musicians interested in playing this year’s festival in Giovanni Caboto Park on June 6 and 7, performers will take the stage at Boyle Street Community Services in the afternoon on Saturday, April 18 and at Bissell Centre in the afternoon of Sunday, April 19. All are welcome!

Any questions related to participating in programs, or volunteering with activities, can be sent to rkafara@bissellcentre.org.

Rylan is the Program Coordinator of the Inner City Recreation and Wellness Program.
