Annual Triangle Lawn Sale - A Success
The annual spring Triangle lawn sale was again a success. We were fortunate to have had lovely weather which helped achieve a strong turnout. In total, there were approximately 60 participants. We received 24 contribution envelopes and collected a total of $268. These proceeds were used to cover the advertising costs of the sale.

A Triangle Party?
As we all know, the Triangle is a community with great spirit! Many streets and laneways within the Triangle organize yearly get-togethers and other social events. In years past, the BTRA has helped to organize large-scale events for the Triangle neighbourhood as a whole, including Halloween parties, annual pumpkin carving contests for the children and Halloween costume parties for the adults, an outdoor barbeque event and dances at the Church.

Looking up and you see the original second storey windows and a third floor dormer (wait, no it is an attic window with pretensions). [More]

Online Bicycle Registration Program
Recently I visited a couple of the larger bicycle retail outlets in the City looking for a new bike and was amazed to see that prices currently range from $250. to $5,000. Specialty racing bikes can exceed $10,000. It is easy to see why bicycle theft and resale is such a thriving business in the City of Toronto and the Beach Community is not immune to bicycle theft.

Over the previous four years a few members from various local community bands have come together to perform an old Christmas tradition in the Beach Triangle: carol singing with brass accompaniment. [More]
