City of Toronto officials and staff, in partnership with Lowe's Canada, will join members of the community on Saturday to celebrate renovations to Scarborough's Centennial East Arena that were made by Lowe's. Hockey great Curtis Joseph will make a special appearance at the event, which will include a ceremonial board cutting for the arena.

Time: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., remarks at 11 a.m.

Location: Centennial East Recreation Centre, 1967 Ellesmere Rd.

In May 2012, Lowe's Canada donated $50,000 as part of the Lowe's Community Rink Renovation Program aimed at helping to rebuild minor hockey in Canada one rink at a time. Volunteers got to work in the same month and painted all the dressing rooms over the course of two days.

During a weekend this past June, Lowe's employees, vendors, community volunteers and City of Toronto staff all contributed their time and skills to install an energy-efficient ceiling, spectator safety netting, water bottle filling station, and sinks, faucets and automatic flush valves.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people.
