As a member of my local club of adult LEGO fans, I received a request from The Toronto Star to participate in an article featuring ‘big kids’ who never stopped loving LEGO. Our club, ToroLUG, doesn’t have a regular meeting space, so I suggested meeting at my workshop, as I not only have space to host a small gathering, but the reporter also thought that a functioning LEGO workshop would make a perfect backdrop for the story.

On Saturday, September 28th from 1pm-5pm, I had the pleasure of giving back to my community and partaking in a local festival, Lakeshore Culture Days. The festival consisted of many local artists setting up booths and sharing their gifts with the families and residents of the Lakeshore communities of Mimico, New Toronto, and Long Branch in the West End of Toronto
