We printed 5000 copies of our winter 2008-2009 newsletter and delivered them to your door. But perhaps you lost your copy, or recycled it, or didn’t see it when it arrived. And you would still like to read about the “house of straw” or find out about the free cultural assessment our neighbourhood won. Now you can because this newsletter, and the Fall 2008 newsletter, are online. To view them click on this text.
