Last Thursday marked our first 2-hour TTC venture in the history of Expressionworks. We departed as three teams, all of us in partners, enthusiastic to travel aboard the TTC! Two groups departed from our typical Birch meet up spot, but soon parted northbound and southbound. Dina and Alanna-Stephanie walked to ride the #82 Rosedale bus. The main group boarded at Summerhill, travelling northbound to meet up with Susan, Alex and Petra at St. Clair Station. We all met on the northbound platform and continued to Sheppard-Yonge station safely as a group. Upon arrival, we discovered the DWA and celebrated reaching our destination with our snack packs. We then practiced making phone calls with our partners in case of an emergency staged situation where we’d have to inform another of being late. On our southbound venture back to Summerhill, we practiced using polite language to ask for a seat, as well as give up our seat to someone in need and asking. We also followed our route on our maps, kept an open ear for the overhead announcements, and told jokes. Upon exiting Summerhill, we reconnected with Alanna-Stephanie and Dina for our final stroll back to our Birch site where we shared our fondest memories and excitement over next week’s venture south through Yonge and Bloor, and eastbound to Broadview. A fantastic adventure for all!
Looking forward to our final night with our guest Staff Support Raquel Beals on May 14th.
