Family Fun Day Less Than 1 Month from Now! Sat Sept 14th

Greetings neighbours!

The Fun Day is getting closer and things are coming together!

We already have many community sponsors with details to come out closer to the big day.  But we can confirm there will be:
  • Complementary coffee for the grown-ups!
  • The famous bike parade (10am)
  • Open tennis courts (first-come-first-served)
  • A 12 metre (40 foot) inflatable obstacle course for kids to enjoy (10:00 - 2:00)
  • Cutie animal petting zoo including: rabbits, bunnies, guinea pigs, piglets, hedgehogs, chinchilla, chicks, goats, and a baby calf (11:00 - 1:00)
  • A fire truck from Ottawa Fire Services (12:00 - 1:00)
  • Police officers from Ottawa Police Services (10:00 - 2:00)
  • A great children's entertainer/busker
  • Local folk dancers (from Bosnia)
  • A Baking Contest!  Make your best baked dessert (pie, muffins, cookies) to judging by local business foodies and you could win one of the great prizes donated by local businesses!  Let us know if you're going to enter so we save you a spot at the tables!

There will be big barbecue with $1 hot dogs, pop, juice, water and ice cream sandwiches - funds going to pay for a much needed community centre air conditioner.

We are still looking for volunteers to help out on the big day (bike parade chaperones, table attendees, and other jobs need filling).  Send us a note and we'll keep you in the loop!

Delivering paper flyers is a lot of work, costs a bit of money and wastes paper.  Email is fast and convenient   Please ask 2 of your neighbours to sign up their email addresses so we can keep in touch.  Newsletters are about 3-4 times per year and we don't share the list with anyone!
