Congratulations to the ALL the racers last weekend. Ruth did an amazing time (!:17) first in her age category, in the Waterfront 10K. Where are the photos, Ruth? We need to celebrate that finish.

Rainer reported that the race in Brandon Hills Ajax waterfront was good. Frances and her daughter Rhianna came in 2nd and 3rd walker in the 10 km.  Margy and Rainer came in 1st and 3rd in the 5 km walker category. Very, very impressive - congratulations.

Announcements and Information - from Olwyn: A poisonous plant that we may encounter on our walks this summer.  Beware the Giant Hogweed!  

The city is warning Scarborough residents of poisonous plants along trails and in parks. Giant hogweed has a green stalk with very noticeable reddish-purple blotches on it and can grow to 20 feet tall. It's dangerous to humans and can cause serious burns & rashes on anyone who touches it. We’re being asked to call 311 if you spot it so city crews can deal with it. CityNews has video on what it looks like:
