TBC Fundraising Bazaar: A Great Success
Beautiful weather, great music, plentiful and delicious food and drinks, innovative arts and crafts and family fun activities – all of these combined to make the TBC Fundraising Bazaar held on September 17 at 691 Scarlett Road a huge success. Of course, success can't just be measured by the activities themselves or even the funds raised. The event's success was seen in the smiles, heard in the laughter and the words of gratitude of all. We all shared the positive feeling of contributing to the maintenance of an important cultural and historical Heritage site.
Many thanks to the musicians, the artisans, the chefs and in fact to all who contributed their time, their talents and their effort to such a worthy cause.
Tired but happy – we are looking forwards to next year's Bazaar!………. >> Photos

October 2022
The vision of Toronto Bell Cote is its role as a centre for history, education and edification. In light of this vision, on Sunday, October 16, 2022 the 68 th anniversary of Hurricane Hazel, Toronto Bell Cote hosted its first community symposium on Climate Change and Emergency Preparedness.
Subhas Mukhopadkyay presented a report on climate change from the Toronto Public Library's environmentalist-in-residence Shamily Shanmuganathan (who was regrettably unable to attend in person); Rhianydd Phillips from Toronto and Region Conservation Authority summarized current endeavours by TRCA to protect our community from flooding. Sherry Waters from the City of Toronto's Office of Emergency Management showed us how to create a portable emergency kit and Bruce Longstreet from Toronto Bell Cote outlined a communication system to ensure communities could stay in touch with each other in the event of an emergency.
This community symposium was greatly appreciated by the attendees. It is our hope to continue to present workshops on these two very relevant topics for our community.
