May I have this polka?

Another fall festival!
But first, about last week:


A grey day and interesting clouds over the lake. Great way to see some dragon boat racing, particularly since we knew a couple of the participants. Congrats to Donna and Angela. Excellent work, and we enjoyed our visit. A ceremony to send pink and green carnations onto the surface of the lake, in memory of lost teammates, included racers and audience on shore. Those who’d lost family, friends, or team-mates to breast cancer or transplant-related illness found this very moving. I was glad to be there.

Team Transplant’s main goal is to raise awareness about organ donation. Are you a registered organ donor? Want to check? Go here, to be sure you’re signed up. This is important!

Click on any photo below to see larger, carousel-array of all. In the case of team-names, highly recommended – they’re a hoot!

We had a good walk back, too, through Liberty Village. A brief visit to the farmer’s market, and then a dash into Balzac’s, to warm up. What a great morning. Thank you for sharing another excellent walk.

This week, September 20, 2015:

Roncesvalles. Polish Festival. Pierogies. Music. Beautiful costumes. Polka!!
Do I really need to say more?

If you’re a die-hard polkamaniac, you may also want to head over there Saturday evening, to Dance Under the Stars. Sorry I can’t manage that. But I will see you Sunday morning at 10:00 for a walk over to one of our favourite west end streets. And a tonne of festival fun!

As always, please feel free to bring friends.

Other great things on, this weekend:

Bloor Ossington Folk Festival at Christie Pits! I wish I could fit this in, somehow. Maybe next year.

TIFF continues, all over. I have two films left to see. Glad to chat about the six I’ve seen, so far.

City Cider at Spadina House. I’ll be there!

Coming right up:

Next week, we’ll re-visit the music, food, history, community, marching and eco-smart-stuff that are all part of David Suzuki’s Homegrown Park Crawl.

Fall is a great time to walk in T.O. Great walks ahead. See you soon!

Are you reading about our club for the first time?

Welcome. You really should walk with us! See you in the morning!
