More than 150 interested people crowded into the Greenwood College School on May 8 for SERRA’s annual meeting. This year’s AGM, with its theme “Take Back Our Neighbourhood,” featured guest speakers Councillor Josh Matlow and Senior Planning Director Gregg Lintern, who updated residents on the state of play in the very busy Davisville Village.

Many thanks to Greenwood College School Principal Allan Hardy and his fine staff for hosting our group.
