We are looking for memories and historical facts about Burlington and the Mountainside community to use in the artwork that will be installed on the outside walls of the community centre.

The Project

What are your memories of the Mountainside community? Do you know of any important historical facts about Mountainside?

Those with memories or historical information about Mountainside can fill out a form at the Mountainside Recreation Centre from July 10 to 20, 2015, or share online using the form below:
