1. Other than the Dinner Dance, are there any other planned activities?

We will have a pot-luck lunch at the Niagara Glen Pavillion in Niagara Falls  Ontario on Sunday, August 18, 2013 starting at 10:30 am. For GPS coordinates please use Niagara Glen Nature Reserve Niagara Falls, Ontario or click on this link:

The Pavillion is located just a few steps down the parking lot of Niagara Glen Nature Reserve, it is before you reach the Botanical Garden. You can plan your Niagara Falls sightseeing before, during or after joining us in the Pavillion.


2. I need a driving direction to the Dinner Dance Venue and the pot-luck picnic venue.

Click on the Google map below, click on the venue, click on the Paetenians logo and click on DIRECTIONS:

3. Some maps put the dinner dance venue in Scarborough and some put it in Toronto?  Which is the correct city?

They are both correct.  Scarborough used to be a separate municipality until 1998 when it amalgamated with the city of Toronto.
