COMMUNITY YARD SALE

LPRO hosts an annual Community Yard Sale the first Saturday of June. This is a much anticipated event in our community where you can find a new home for your gently used items, find something special and meet with your neighbours. Every year over 100 homes participate!

aNNUAL RAVINE CLEAN-UP

For over 20 years LPRO has organized the clean-up of the Chatsworth/Otter Creek Ravine as part of the City of Toronto’s Clean Up Days. The event, held on a City-designated Saturday in April, is a great opportunity to help keep our ravine free of trash and meet other members of our community. 

The 2023 LPRO Ravine Clean-Up took place on Saturday, April 22. In spite of a rainy morning, 25 volunteers came out again this year to help make the Chatsworth/Otter Creek ravine sparkle!

2019 EGLINTON-LAWRENCE FEDERAL CANDIDATES' MEETING*

LPRO hosted a candidates’ meeting for the community on October 2, 2019 to help residents make a more informed choice in the 2019 federal election. This was a unique opportunity to meet the candidates and hear them articulate and defend their party’s platform. The event drew a large audience from LPRO’s catchment and the rest of the riding.

A 50 Questionnaire Handout was completed by Candidates prior to the Meeting and was distributed to attendees on the night of the event.
