 At the Ward 32/Beaches-East York event held at Firkin on Danforth on the Saturday, adult beverages and hot finger foods imbued the air with an office party feel and bagpiper Sarah Severn added some ceremonial lustre.

Residents had a chance to talk to co-hosts Ward 32 councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, Beaches-East York MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith and B-EY MPP Arthur Potts.
