April 2024 e-Newsletter

Happy Spring!

April will be a busy month for many. There are many special events for families to be observed: Ramadan has already begun, Passover, and Earth Day will come later this month. We celebrate Easter this weekend. The sporting life will be enhanced as the Baseball season has begun and returns to Toronto on April 8th. The playoff seasons will begin for Hockey (our Toronto Maple Leafs) and Basketball (alas, not our Toronto Raptors) .

It’s that time of year – the days are getting longer. Maple syrup season is almost here but products may be in shorter supply this year. Flower gardens are beginning to blossom.

..and we’re getting ready to file our taxes. Income Tax will need to be calculated as it is due on April 30th (all payments). Check out the End of Year Tax Tips from RTOERO:

Both our website and our STONY Bridges magazine, will contain all of the registration forms and links to these events. Read all about what has been planned and register early!

Our first Speaker Series: Protect and Promote Pollinators will be held on Wednesday, April 10 following our Executive Meeting.

Details are outlined below.

Consider joining our executive District 23 team.
The current vacancies for 2024-2025 include: Second Vice President, Recruitment, Membership and Cycling Conveners.
