Mississauga’s Music Walk of Fame in Port Credit Memorial Park was established in 2012 by the late Councillor Jim Tovey. This inaugural ceremony recognizes the amazing musical talents that have come out of Mississauga.
In the past, four inductees had their names forever engraved on granite plaques that are installed in the walking path of Port Credit Memorial Park. Port Credit has a reputation as the musical hub of Mississauga. Therefore, it was fitting to establish the Music Walk of Fame there as well.
This year, to honour the late Councillor Jim Tovey, Jim will be the sole inductee for the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame.
The ceremony will be held this Sunday, July 22 2018. In Port Credit Memorial Park from 3:00-4:00 PM.
From our February newsletter:
We were very sad to hear of the passing of Jim Tovey-our Ward councillor and friend. 'Jim always had time for people and their issues. I remember meeting him for the first time at our door and spending several hours discussing his vision for Mississauga's waterfront'.
Jim was passionate about our community and his commitment to the future plans and growth for Ward 'Wone-derful' as he affectionately called it. We were lucky to have him - he will not be forgotten.
