"Close ups of the Boom Times notice, the map and a poster for our Amalgamation Celebration at Humberside Collegiate Institute on May 1 between 6 and 11pm. We are inviting the Junction and the greater Toronto community to celebrate once again with us as to commemorate our joining the city of Toronto as an equal. There will be community booths with family games, a historical recreation of the original night, which was pretty hysterical in itself, the unveiling of the Community Spirit of the Junction, and dances from a hundred years of Canadian life. What was the event of 1909 is shaping up to be the event of 2009!"
Just a reminder: next meeting of the Junction Historical Society will be:

Thursday, April 2
7:30 pm
Annual General Meeting
8:15 pm
Barbara Myrvold, Toronto Public Library's local history services specialist, presents an illustrated talk about the decorative murals at the Dufferin/St.Clair Branch painted between 1925 and 1932 by George A. Reid, Lorna Claire and Doris Mc.Carthy, and the community-led campaign to restore them.

YourHome: A throwback to a simpler life: Barbara Myrvold owns an 89-year-old Arts and Crafts house in the Beach and followed the style's dictates when renovating it. Such houses often feature wide porch overhangs.
