Save the following dates this Spring and Summer!
Community Clean Up
Join the Community Association and your neighbours on Saturday, May 27th for our annual spring clean up! Meet us at the park to get your supplies and let’s clean up our parks and streets. We will be supplying garbage bags and gloves. See anyone in an orange t-shirt to get your volunteer hours signed.
At the clean up we will be accepting monetary donations that will buy gift cards for food and toiletries for the flood victims.
Ways to Help the Flood Victims
We are all feeling for the victims of the recent floods. If you would like to help, here are some ways to do so.
Those who want to donate clothing, household items and furniture to flood victims can do so at Salvation Army thrift stores. Donated items will not be sold. The city says those in need will receive vouchers they can use to retrieve donated items.
The Red Cross is also accepting donations. To contribute, connect with a local office or call 1-800-418-1111 for more information.
The local flood hotline number is 613-446-1518.
The volunteer registration number is 613-488-2960.
Community Garage Sale
Our annual garage sale is going to be June 24th this year. You can participate at the rink or in your own driveway.
If you would like to book a spot at the rink, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate if you will be bringing your own table or if we will need to rent one for you.
We will advertise the community sale with signs around the neighborhood as well as on Kijiji and Craigslist.
Our outdoor party will be held on Saturday August 26th! Let’s hope for better weather than last year! There will be no rain date for this event.
If you are a local vendor, we are going to open up the rink at this event for you to share what you sell with the community. Tables will be available to rent for a small fee or a donation to the silent auction.
More details to come, but mark your calendars for this event.
Tell your neighbours!
We have 800 members on Facebook and less than 200 on our email mailing list. The emails don’t come often, however they are a great way for us to tell you about upcoming events or community concerns.
