Ray the Crossing Guard is retiring. Come out and help send him off with a SURPRISE THANK YOU PARADE! On Friday, December 19th at 8:15am we will meet in two secret spots. Join us at either the corner of Keystone and Patricia, or Oak Park just north of Danforth (out of Ray’s sight!). Come prepared to make some noise – bring noisemakers, homemade instruments, whatever may be in your toy box! Have your child write a letter to Ray, create a card, draw a picture, make a sign – ideally every child has something to hand over to Ray. At 8:20am, the music will begin and we will parade en masse, cheering for Ray, dancing up a storm. One by one, the kids will line up and say thank you and give him their card/letter/drawing. Parents too! After all, this is the man who jumps in front of cars every day for our safety, and does it all with a smile!
Please tell you neighbours and meet us on Friday morning at 8:15am to make some NOISE and show some THANKS!! Please note, we will be videotaping the parade, and taking pictures for local papers.
