Book from CC55 tells the stories of Beach during First World War
A great deal of thanks is owed to Jean Cochrane and Carole Stimmell for the research and publication of Vignettes of the Beach and East Toronto, which chronicles people in our community who served our country during terrible times. Their work is a tangible and lasting tribute that has particular significance given the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
Their booklet is Informative and educational and, combined with the continued writings of Gene Domagala, contributes to a wealth of local history. For those of you who haven’t read their work, it is available at the Beach Metro News and Community Centre 55.
A special thanks to all of those who sponsored its publication.
Cash instead of cards could save everyone money
Recently, we have heard that retailers prefer cash for goods because credit and debit cards cost retailers to process our personal data; so, I suggest that retailers offer customers a discount on the customer’s purchase total that equals the cost of administration which he or she will be charged by the banks, IF the customer agrees to pay cash.
Therefore, ‘Cash for Discount’ could influence whether or not we, as customers, pay cash or use a credit or debit card. Doable?
Beach Studio Tour gives thanks for 20 years of support
As you know the Beach Studio Tour has just celebrated its 20th anniversary! And we are happy to say that we hold the title of longest standing studio tour in Toronto. We just wanted to take a moment to thank the Beach Metro News and all Beach supporters as we could not have reached this milestone without your support.
With much thanks for all you do for the arts in our community,
Beach Studio Tour Chair
