It is with the greatest sadness that our dearest friend and BIA board member Janet Bedford left us unexpectedly on Feb 26 because of a sudden heart attack. We are devastated to get this news about this wonderful lady who gave so much to her family, to friends and for her volunteerism to the community as well.

The Board of the Bronte BIA has lost a tireless and dedicated board member for many years and a true community champion, and more, we have lost a dear friend.
