September 10, 2016. NOBLETON, ON – A group of RSI Ambassadors joined the Recreation & Culture department, alongside Toronto Region Conservation (TRCA) and other sponsors, to support the official opening of Tasca Park.
As reported in the King Sentinel, “Mayor Steve Pellegrini said achievements like this are due to the many partnerships with the community and sponsors. The Tasca family itself, provided land from the family farm. Both Joe and Bernice are the “epitome” of community volunteers, he said and there’s no better way to honour them than to put their name on King’s newest park. CN and Tree Canada provided the beautiful trees located throughout the park and the mayor lauded this partnership. ”
We literally dug in to help plant wildflowers, shrubs and participated in a variety of the other environmental discussions and activities throughout this celebrative event.
We are grateful for this opportunity to support such a worthy initiative
The RSI park crew members included Yasmin Glanville (RSI Chair), Darla Campbell (Advisor), Kenneth Poon (Advisor) and RSI Ambassadors – Usman Khan, Daniel King, Maria Albuquerque, and Majed Hargaaya.
To anchor the memory, here are a few photos of our RSI volunteers in action:
