SBCA Looking Forward To A Strong 2021
By Heidi Evans
The Scarborough Bluffs Community Association, like many other groups and organizations felt the blow of Provincial lockdowns and restrictions last year. As an Association that organizes in-person events, we were faced with the challenge of how to fulfill our mandate in bringing about a stronger community, when we can’t be with the community.
We pivoted to virtual events and looked for other ways to help – namely those affected by job losses – and the resulting surge on our local food banks. We’ve brought joy to people with random-draw contests, videos and concerts, and we learned a lot about our amazing community!
We are continuing to plan for remote and virtual activities for the foreseeable future, and when we’re able to do so, will host in-person events.
In the meantime, due to popular demand, we’ve re-launched our Scarborough Bluffs Hoodie and Toque fundraiser. Deadline for orders is January 29th. See our website for details.
We are excited to share some of our plans for 2021 that we hope the community will find uplifting and help to ease the stress that lockdowns can bring.
In February, in lieu of our Fire and Ice Event, we’ll be hosting a Family Day Scavenger Hunt, details will follow on our website and social sites shortly. Our Annual General Meeting will be held virtually at the end of February. We are always open to hearing new ideas for events and community building.

Thank you to our fabulous sponsors and the community for continually participating and supporting our Association in these trying times. The SBCA encourages you to keep supporting businesses by shopping local. Not only will it help the business but indirectly, you help Associations like ours as well.
The Scarborough Bluffs Community Association (SBCA) was formalized in January 2018 to help bring together the communities of Cliffcrest, Cliffside and Birchcliff through events that bring us together. By the community, for the community, for a stronger community. Find us at www.sbca.ca
