Executive Director's Report - July 2018


From the Director:


Lots of exciting news this summer! Our ImprovAPalooza fundraiser is happening on October 20, 2018. The very talented and funny  Michael McCreary , will keep us entertained and there will be a Silent Auction, a Story Wall and tasty finger food and refreshments. All in the lovely setting of The Aurora Cultural Centre at 22 Church Street in  Aurora.


All proceeds will go toward helping ImprovAbility! expand our programming, develop research and enrich our social outreach MeetUp program. There are still Event Sponsorship Opportunities and we are always looking for Silent Auction donations. Contact Ann, Lisa or Alana at


As a result of lower enrollment in the York Teen sessions, we are temporarily discontinuing those for the fall in York Region and adding another Young Adult York session there.  Meanwhile in Toronto, we are offering our first ever Toronto Teen Session this fall.  We are firming up details now and will be sending them out soon.


To everyone who attended this year’s MeetUp events thanks for your support! - with a big special shout out to all our Improbability alumni. So many of our Players have gone on to attend college, get jobs and create new networks of friends. It’s so great to be able to celebrate those successes when we meet for our monthly socials.


We want to know about your MeetUp experience - please feedback to . Your input and suggestions will help our new MeetUp coordinator, Sabikun Bahuiyan, to design and deliver an improved Meet Up program starting this fall. Sabikun’s bio is down below.  We’ll be sending updates on the 2019/20 line-up to our MeetUp attendees very soon.


For this summer, stay cool.  Have a safe happy summer whatever you are doing!
