Heather and I are very pleased to announce that our son, Benjamin Hogan Cherniak, was born at 3 a.m. on Thursday, August 21, 2014. He was 8 pounds, 2 ounces and we are all home and healthy.
August has been a very busy month! Before our baby was born, I attended Minister Helena Jaczek's volunteer appreciation event, the Alzheimer Society of York Region's Golf Tournament, Minister Reza Moridi's annual BBQ, the Lake Wilcox Grand Opening, Richmond Hill Deputy Mayor Vito Spatafora's campaign launch and Our Lady of the Annunciation's annual BBQ. You can see some great pictures on my Facebook page – click here to see one of my volunteer canvass teams.
This past week, I enjoyed the first policy meeting of our new riding, Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill. Congratulations to Policy VP Dave Grewal for his successful organization! The attendees spoke about foreign affairs, domestic issues, the economy, the environment and health care. There were some exciting ideas in the room and I look foward to working on them as the future MP!
My team and I are organizing the following events for September:
- September 6: A meet and greet at 3 p.m. at Menchie's, 13390 Yonge St, Oak Ridges for the young and young at heart, with free frozen yogurt for Young Liberals and members' children.
- September 12-14: I am on the steering committee for the Liberal Party of Canada (Ontario) General Meeting in Markham.
- September 28: An afternoon meet and greet in Aurora. Details to follow.
I look forward to seeing you at one or more of these events!
