The Limers Association began with friends and family coming together to plan an annual summer barbecue. The group wanted to form a foundation for the upcoming generation; one that builds on the principles of unity, collectiveness and a shared responsibility for investing in our future.
The association has evolved into an organized body of people who pride themselves on enjoying family fellowship with one another while recognizing the needs of the community. In recent years, The Limers Association has focused on giving back to the community through various initiatives such as organizing Parangfest. The members have decided to formalize their structure in 2017 to a Not-for-Profit Status in order to further their work in supporting various causes such as community development, youth investment, and education.
In 2016, the Limers Association lost our founding member, Horace “Carl” Moore after a lengthy illness. An educator with decades working in the Toronto Catholic and Dufferin-Peel School Boards, Horace Moore sought to create a scholarship that would provide funds to assist a talented and deserving student. Starting this year, the scholarship will be renamed The Horace Moore Memorial Essay Competition for students of Caribbean Descent in his memory.
