What's Happening

  • Since she appeared at a neighbourhood community family event at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC in the fall, many people in our area have been following Natalie Spooner, a talented forward on the Canadian Women’s Hockey team.

    The final pre-Olympic exhibition game between Canada and the United States took place before over 17,000 people, at the Air Canada Centre, in December – and our neighbourhood was delighted to see Natalie score one of Team Canada’s two goals.  We all wish Natalie and her teammates great success at the Sochi Olympics in February.

  • Among the annual events in the Sheppard East Village neighbourhood that always generate strong interest are the Chinese New Year celebrations at the Oriental Centre (northeast corner of Brimley and Sheppard Avenues).

    For further information, please email orientalcentre@gmail.com or call 416-298-8298.

  • The annual Holiday Season Food Drive – for the Daily Bread Food Bank – is now underway at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC.

    Everyone is invited to drop off some food or to participate in some very appealing raffles that will raise needed funds for the Food Bank.

    Hogan’s (5000 Sheppard Avenue East, between McCowan and Markham Roads) collected 1,341 pounds of food during their Thanksgiving Food Drive, earlier this year.

    The staff at Hogan’s are pleased to support the Food Bank. “To give back to our community is a very good feeling,” noted Office Manager Suzanne. 

    Hogan’s invites everyone to stop by with a donation for this very worthy cause.

  • These concerts and plays, at neighbourhood schools, provide great experience for the participating students and also help them grow as individuals, through their performing and arts experiences.

    People who live nearby have an opportunity to come out and enjoy these performances – right in our own neighbourhood. The tickets are very reasonable and help defer some event costs.

    Everyone is welcome – hope you can make it!

  • Agincourt Collegiate has been recognized, for many years, for its outstanding arts and music programs – and for the enthusiasm and dedication of its 1,400 students, many of whom are members of its award-winning orchestras and choirs.

    ACI offers our community the opportunity to enjoy the excellence and efforts of its talented staff and students, at these events.

  • Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School has also been recognized for the excellence of its instrumental and vocal music programs – ones that help its graduating students to easily ‘fit’ with high quality programs at nearby Agincourt Collegiate.

    You are invited to contact the school for more information.

  • Community events will be one of the features of this new Sheppard East Village BIA  website – and neighbourhood organizations are invited to contact the Executive Director, Ernie McCullough [ ernie@sevbia.com ] with information about their events that are open to the public - they would like SEV BIA to help promote.

    We will also be providing information about upcoming events and activities being  organized by members of SEV BIA – to which everyone is welcome.

    Our goal will be to highlight upcoming events and to refer you to the organization that is sponsoring or presenting the event – to obtain all of the event information you will need. Here are a few upcoming events of which SEV BIA is aware.
