It was a great pleasure to participate at the first Congregation Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem (TBDJ) block party held on June 21, 2009 in front of the synagogue on Baily Rd. It was a beautiful day with many residents of the neighbourhood coming out for a good time. Our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) truck was on display while kids enjoyed the face painting, inflatable games and street hockey. The event also featured a local dog show. It was a very well organized event and the city welcomes residents holding such parties and looks forward to more such events in the future.
