Of course, the food was amazing. Drawing from an array of culinary excellence, no fewer than a dozen Roncy Village eateries charitably provided delectables for an open bar gathering of RoncyWorkers, RVBIA Board Members, supporters and local patrons.

The entire multi-coursed feast including Hot Chocolate and Desert bar that followed was overseen by Barque’s Event Planning specialist; David Neinstein.

Held at Roncesvalles United Church and co-Hosted by Rev. Anne Hines and Brian Bertrand, who is the head librarian at the High Park Library, the four-hour event attended by 43 locals which included 29 volunteers and members of the Roncesvalles Village BIA Board — was punctuated with awards, gift giving and group celebration with those who help make RoncyWorks a community engagement success.
RoncyWorks is the volunteer arm of the BIA, with an army of community people who come together to oversee the streetscape of Roncesvalles Ave by strategizing the tree canopy, maintaining the plant beds, and sweeping cigarette butt litter.

Additionally,  RoncyWorks members spearhead community projects such as the launching of the Dundas West / Roncesvalles Peace Garden, Shine Your Light Campaign  and the annual Earth Hour Walk.   Roncy works because the Roncesvalles community works together.
