A great way to kick off the holiday season in Weston Village!
On Sunday December 9th, 1-5pm, Weston Park Baptist Church is sponsoring its annual Christmas Community Food Drive. Each year the Christmas food drive helps 330+ local families. For almost 30 years the community has graciously responded with the needed food.
This is achieved is by distributing 4000 bags into the Weston community a week prior to the drive. With more than 50 volunteers the food is collected door-to-door, it is sorted at the church, boxed and prepared for distribution by the Weston Area Emergency Support WAES Food Bank.
Food may also be brought to the church at 1871 Weston Rd. Volunteers are welcome. Contact Shawn Watts email@example.com.

Capping off the week before the August long weekend will be our own Weston Village Annual Neighbours’ Night Out! on Thursday, August 2nd and our theme for this year is: A Midsummer Night’s Dream! Along with the yummy burgers and hot dogs – still a toonie including a drink – we’ll have Frontlines serving dessert treats as their fundraiser for summer camp. And we are excited to have numerous other community partners joining us this year: sponsors Weston Lions and Luminous Financial will be having tables; Weston Minor Hockey will be offering information for sign up; Weston Road Runners will invite interested runners to join them; Options For Homes, who are building 10 Wilby, will be there with there information on the new development; and, Artscape along with UrbanArts and Shakespeare In Action will have a table to show off their new digs at 22 John St. Along with all these wonderful community partners, the Weston Historical Society will have their display so people can learn more about Weston! For the evening entertainment, we’ll have a craft table for the kids for mask making (keeping in the theme!) and Shakespeare In Action will be offering a workshop for all on Midsummer Night’s Dream … using rap!! And to cap off the night, we will be showing kid-friendly movie, ‘Strange Magic’ with free popcorn!
