On Saturday September 23rd, the stage was set for the first ever Cooskville Community Street Party. The warm sunshine acted as a natural magnet to draw people to the event. Jointly organised by VolunteerMBC, Mississauga Cooksville Library, NewComer Services of Peel, Afghan Womens Organization, Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Services, The Dam, Mississauga Arts Council, City of Mississauga, Centre for Education and Training, these organizations all came together with the local community to celebrate their unique culture, diversity and multiculturism. There was fun and games for all. The community got a chance to say ‘Hello’ to their neighbours, learn about the various programs, services and businesses in Cooksville and have fun at the same time.
