On Wednesday May 29, 10 current and past members of the Board of Sheppard East Village BIA had the opportunity to meet with Mayor John Tory, at lunch, to talk about local matters of interest and concern to our members – the businesses and professional offices on Sheppard, between Midland Avenue and Markham Road.
On May 3, Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC hosted ‘Drive for a Cause’ - a successful event in support of the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association.
In a unique approach, people could take a ‘no-obligation’ test drive of a Hogan car, in return for a $50 contribution to the Sharks. Some 181 people took a test drive that day and others kicked in for some delicious foods barbequed at Hogan’s. This event generated a total contribution to the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association of $9,621!
When people talk about Sheppard East Village, one comment comes up all the time: “We love the food in your area -tasty, reasonably priced and it’s authentic – just like the people who make and sell it.”
These comments came to mind with all the recent publicity – Toronto Star; CTV; Global TV and others – about a blog by American economist and author Tyler Cowen, in which he stated: “Scarborough is the best ethnic food suburb I have seen in my life – ever – by an order of magnitude.”
At the recent Annual General Meeting of Sheppard East Village BIA, 8 members were elected to serve as the Board for the next 4 years. Once the Board was elected by the BIA members, it then elected its Officers, from among the Board members.
We thank these individuals for agreeing to provide their time for the good of all the businesses and professional offices on and near Sheppard Avenue East, between Midland Avenue and Markham Road.
Here is the new Board of Management of Sheppard East Village BIA:

We are pleased to report that the recent Hogan Chevrolet, Buick GMC food drive in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank was a great success.
