Tribute: Isobel’s Place in the Park

Isobel’s Place in the Park

Whitevale Park now has a special place of solitude, reflection and meditation. “Isobel’s Place in the Park”, is in memory of Isobel Thompson. Friends and neighbours will gather at the Whitevale Park for this sunset tribute to Isobel, followed by refreshments and the sharing of memories in the Whitevale Community Centre.

Date: Saturday, October 15, 2016

Time: 5:00 pm

Location: Whitevale Park, 371 Whitevale Road

Isobel and her husband Tommy have been the heart and soul of Whitevale since their arrival some 50 year ago. Their commitment to our hamlet and the preservation of the North Pickering lands is unparalleled. The dedication of this quiet place in the park is in appreciation of Isobel’s selfless devotion to our community.

She has been and will always be missed.

Portrait on the Bridge – May 18, 2013 @ NOON

From Gord Willson and Donna Bailey:

“The ‘Village Portrait on the Bridge’ to promote Spring Festival is a way to gain greater attendance at our annual event and it is the foundation of the idea that we must gain greater public support. On 25 May, we all become ambassadors of the village for survival.”

Please join us on the bridge – May 18 at noon for the portrait.  See the attached image below for more details.
