On August 11th I was surprised to see Halloween candy in a grocery store! I felt we were in the midst of summer and here was evidence that Halloween was coming up too soon!

Attention budding photographers! Please send us your favourite photos of Clarkson Village in the Summer. Email to clarksonbia@outlook.com. “Best” photo (judged by directors of The Clarkson BIA) will receive a gift certificate to one of our award-winning restaurants.

The Clarkson BIA hopes that your summer 2018 was memorable and will continue to be enjoyable in through the fall! We hope that you will visit our fabulous stores and services, who carry excellent products and provide superior customer service. October is a great time to walk the length of Clarkson Village, along Lakeshore Rd; visit your favourite businesses and make acquaintance with ones that are new to you.

And speaking of Halloween! Halloween in the Village is perhaps the most favourite event to some. Residents from far and wide anxiously await this exciting event which is being held this year on Saturday, October 27th from 10 am to 2 pm. The usual children activities will be available, and we encourage you to visit all our businesses who will be shelling out to “trick or treaters”.

We encourage adults and children alike to walk the village in their favourite character costume.

We would like to remind you to kindly bring a non-perishable food donation for The Compass.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
