The Friends of Cedarbrook & Thomson Memorial Parks are grateful recipients of a TD Park People grant. This has made it possible to host three of our park events in 2019:
- Jane’s Ride to Scarborough’s First Nations History via Thomson Memorial Park (May 4, 2019)
- Family Movie Night in Cedarbrook Park (August 15, 2019)
- Pumpkin Parade in Cedarbrook Park on November 1, 2019 beginning at 5:30 PM. This was preceded by a Community Pumpkin Carving event, October 26, 2019.

TD Bank: TD is providing funding to these events as part of The Ready Commitment. TD has a long-standing commitment to enriching the lives of its customers, colleagues and communities. That’s why TD launched The Ready Commitment in March 2018, a new multi-year program to help individuals and communities prosper. As part of The Ready Commitment, TD targets CDN $1 billion in total by 2030 towards community giving in four areas critical to opening doors for an inclusive tomorrow — Financial Security, a more Vibrant Planet, Connected Communities and Better Health. Through The Ready Commitment, TD’s aspiration is to link business, products, services, and community giving to help people feel more confident – not just about their finances, but about their future and their ability to achieve their personal goals in a changing world.
