Ta da!  Thanks to Meaghan Carrocci for all of her hard work and patient listening to input from committee members.  We hope you like our logo for the 45th Anniversary celebration of the Durand Neighbourhood Association.

In case you are new to the neighbourhood, the date for our celebration is June 24th starting at 1 p.m. in Durand Park.  You will enjoy:  Displays, music, vendors, face painting, balloon animals, and much more.  Hope to see you there!

Lots of spooky fun in the park!  Join us as we celebrate Halowe’en 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Updates and Dates to Remember


Our AGM was held on October 18 and the new slate for the board of the Durand Neighbourhood Association is as follows:

Dennis Baker, Roberta Harman, Barb Henderson, Wesley Jamieson, David Levy, Frances Murray, Paul Nichols, Christopher Redmond, Geoff Roche, Anne Tennier, Yonatan Rozenszjan

We’re looking forward to a busy and productive year!


Civic Plan has supplied the audit tool and a team of volunteer street auditors will fill in the data for 22 zones.  To learn more about the project, visit the website www.durandcharacter.com.  We need your input!  Fill out the  Survey to have your say about the features you feel are important on your street.  What do you love about your street, and which features do you dislike?  The more input Civic Plan receives, the more successful the outcomes for the Durand Neighbourhood!


Join us in Durand Park from 6 – 8 p.m. on October 29 for lots of fun and games.  Carve a pumpkin and bring it along to join the pumpkin parade!  Wear your costume and get into the spirit of the spooky season!

Movie Night is ON! Sat Sep 24th 5pm

Thank you to everyone who crossed their fingers and toes for good weather tomorrow.  The forecast is for a slightly chilly but dry day on Saturday, and we will begin showing the movie (The Minions Movie) at 7:45.  Bring chairs and blankets!

Please join us in our beautiful new park tomorrow at 5 p.m.   There will be face painting, glitter tattoos, popcorn and coffee for grownups.  Dora’s Express will have a value-priced menu in case you want to skip the cooking tomorrow night.

In addition to the Durand Neighbourhood Association’s program of events, we are going to have a bike lane celebration in addition to the movie night.  Please see the previous blog entry for details.

Fun for one and all!  It’s great that our park is buzzing with all of this community activity.
