West-end sign rally and fundraiser

18 05 2011

Recently there was a community meeting at Hilson School regarding fundraising for the OMB case against the proposed development by Ashcroft Homes at 114 Richmond Road (the Convent site). As it turns out, we agree on a lot of things – and the time has come for us to say so.

The appellants need your help. A simple sign campaign has been created to:

  • Show our united support for the community side of the OMB case
  • Raise money to support the OMB appellants representing Westboro and Iona

Here’s how it works:

  1. Make a donation to the appellants by sending an email to savantconnect@gmail.com.  Donations can be any amount over $20 and all funds go to legal costs for the OMB case.
  2. In your email, identify which sign you would like on your lawn, address and the donation amount.

Below are the signs that are available (click to enlarge)* :

*You may also request your own message on your sign. We ask that you focus on common issues such as height, density, the design plans and points we all agree on collectively.

You’ll receive your sign in 48 hours. Cheques should be made payable to Hampton Iona Community Group.

We need to get at least 500 signs posted. Please help us today. Please forward this information to your friends and neighbours.

The residents of Shannon St. would like to invite the community to a sign rally on Saturday the 21st of May. The rally will go from 11am to 5pm. At this time, Shannon St. will be open to foot traffic and this exciting community event. We will have music, good times, and the residents of Shannon will be out on their lawns to meet the community. The sign campaign coordinators will be taking orders for new signs along with donations to support our cause.
