I had the opportunity to visit the Franklin Horner Community Centre yesterday, for their Family Fun Fair Extravaganza day. September 11th brought a perfect warm sunny day to this Alderwood area event. The field was filled with international food vendors, business displays and children’s activities.
The former school building was purchased from the Toronto District School Board and now operates as a community hub in the Browns Line / Lakeshore / Alderwood area.
Besides hosting a few special events, the centre is in operation every day, providing space to community groups, small businesses and seniors to gather and run their programs.
Local politicians Laurel Broten (MPP) and Mark Grimes (Alderman) were on hand to welcome the community to the event.
