Volunteer Corner for January 26, 2016

The Beach Village BIA is looking for outgoing volunteers who enjoy interacting with young children and families in the community, and who are comfortable speaking in public and encouraging people to participate in BIA events. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. High school students will receive confirmation letters for their community service hours. For more information or to get involved, call 416.693.2242 or email office@thebeachvillage.com.


Organizers of the Fairmount Park Farmers’ Market are putting out a call for new volunteer membership so that the market can continue operating every Wednesday afternoon in season. Some of the roles they need to fill include volunteer coordinator, event coordinator, site management (setup, tear down, safety), children’s activities, and vendor liaison, plus the paid position of market manager.

The market has been a partner in the Edible Forest Grant (which brought new fruit trees to the park), supports the Fairmount Park Ice Masters in obtaining additional storage for the rink, has obtained permits for the park bonfires for Winterfest, is working with the city for a permanent fire pit, and has been approached by a group that would like to build an outdoor bread oven. To volunteer, email info@fairmountmarket.ca by Jan. 30.
