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. Next year will mark our 4th anniversary of our Community Yard Sale.
aNNUAL RAVINE CLEAN-UP
Every year for the past 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.

We typically meet at the east end of the Glenview School playground from 10am to noon with an ample supply of gloves and bags! Volunteer hours are available for high school students as well.
