It is always a pleasure for me to participate in the annual Côte Saint-Luc Seniors Garden Party. Located off the parking lot of Cavendish Mall, just next to the Kellert Avenue entrance, this is one wonderful piece of green space. Chuck Schwartz was outfitted in his chef’s attire to serve up a wide array of barbeque delicacies, as well as pizza, desserts and beverages. There was music and lots of banter. The skies threatened, but nothing could really rain on this parade. Pictured to the right (left to right) are Stephen Segal, Chuck Schwartz, Councillor Cohen and Sam Rappaport.
Congrats to Martha and Club President Sava Todorovic who organize the affair. A number of members of city council were on hand. So was Liberal Member of Parliament for Mount Royal Irwin Cotler. Why do members love this place so much? Listen to Dr. Paul Weinstein, the highly respected West End dentist (adored by all of his patients): “When my wife and moved from our own home to a condominium four years ago, I really missed having my own garden. Being able to come here is just fantastic!”
Sava Todorovic and Councillor Allan J. Levine
Stephen Segal and Sam Rappaport, a couple of other condo dwellers, echo those sentiments. The Garden Club will soon have some company when a brand new housing development goes up on the Mall property. Said one member: “That is fine with us. We are just grateful we do not have to move."
