I was thrilled to see the editorial in last week’s Oakville Today newspaper promoting the idea of holding street parties. The author, Michael Howie told a story about attending a nearby neighbourhood party held on Rushbrooke Drive in the the Glen Abbey area of North Oakville. He says that “the kids were running around (safely), the adults were laughing (without malice) and everyone was having a good time. The best part was that it brought an entire community together”. Isn’t that what Playbourhood is all about? Congratulations to the folks who planned and hosted the event. And thanks to Michael for telling the world about it in the newspaper.
