Love Letters project, which was launched on St Lawrence Neighbourhood Association 40th birthday on February 14, aimed to encourage residents of the neighbourhood to express their love for their community in a meaningful way. The campaign involved distributing postcards and letters, inviting them to write about what they love most about their neighbourhood and community.
The response to this campaign was overwhelming, with residents expressing their love for the community and neighbourhood in a variety of ways. Some wrote about the beautiful scenery and history, while others talked about the friendly and welcoming people who call this neighbourhood home. Many expressed gratitude for the strong sense of community that exists in the SLNA, and for the sense of belonging and connection that comes with being a part of this neighbourhood.
Join us to share love to the Old Toronto and St Lawrence Neighbourhood.
