On Friday, May 22nd I Love Thorndale honoured the contributions of many members of the community at their event,
The evening was filled with words of "thanks" from I Love Thorndale (ILT) community group members to the local businesses who have subscribed to their new directory, which supports ongoing initiatives of ILT in the community.
I Love Thorndale revealed a tribute video to recognize the contributions of community groups and the volunteers they chose to recognize (video by: Colin Ziraldo). ILT proudly presented a plaque that is now displayed in the Thorndale Community Centre. This plaque will be updated annually. Contact ILT to nominate a community volunteer.
