Saturday was a great day for some fun in Lynwood Park!
Thank you so much to our sponsors, volunteers and fun enthusiasts of all ages for making it a great day. From the bouncy castle to the BBQ to face painting, everything was a hit! We even managed to hold off the rain, and we think the overcast skies might have been more accommodating than if it had been +30C...so the weather was perfect for running around with gaggles of children. :-)
The day wouldn't have been a success without the support of:
Dinakar Vladya - Edward Jones
Casey McGowan - RE/MAX Citywide Realty Inc
Alterna Savings and its wonderful team of volunteers
Bosnian Folk Dancers
Bells Corners Community Yoga
Lynwood Park Tennis Club
Messy Play by Creatively Right
Thanks to everyone, and we hope to see you all next year!
Coffee and Company welcomes "Creatively Right"
It is a new Arts, Crafts and Sensory program in our community for children ages 3 to 6. The sessions will start on Thursday, June 26th and run every Thursday morning until July 24th from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The cost to cover supplies is $5 per child. there are only 30 spaces available so book early. Creatively Right's "Messy Play" encourages children to play creatively through messy art. Messy art helps with the development of the right side of the brain. The children use their imaginations while exploring hard and soft, and dry and wet materials. Items like paint, play dough, water, sand, pasta, rice, shaving cream, paper and more are used. There are 4 different stations that encourage messy play and 2 sensory tables for children that want to explore different sensations. It is a fun time for the kids and the best thing for parents and caregivers is that they don't have to clean up the mess! :) Please call Elaine Jasvins at 613 292 7032 or you can register at 613 298 8563.

In the past few weeks there have been reports of an individual aggressively engaging in door to door sales.
It is important to understand that not every door to door salesperson is out to scam you; they may in fact represent a legitimate business. Keep your guard up and use the below safety tips to assess if this is a scam or legitimate offer.
What can you do - Safety Tips:
- Request to see their ID and check it closely
- Be wary if they say “We’re from your current water heater provider, utility or local municipality”, “We need to see your current bills”, “We can replace your device free of charge”
- Call the organization they’re representing to verify the information provided to you
- Don’t let them inside your home under any circumstance
- Request a pamphlet be left with you so that you can review it on your own time and make an informed decision. Don’t be pressured to sign a contract on the spot.
- If they are rude or insist on coming into your home, ask them to leave and/or call the police

Following some performances by our "Percu-chant" and Advanced ukelele students, representatives from the OCDSB will share important information about Early Learning, Full Day Kindergarten and Extended Day Programs (before/afterschool care program). Information will also include preliminary details on the construction of a new addition to Lakeview P.S. to accommodate these programs.
This is a great opportunity to hear about why Lakeview is a great choice for your child as an Early French Immersion public school with a Full-Day program.
You can contact the school at 613-828-8077 for more information. You can also visit Lakeview School Council's website at: www.lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca after the session to see a summary of the information that was provided.

So join us tomorrow from 1-3 and bring your old skates/equipment for a skate swap. Plus hang around and watch the game in the community building while enjoying a $1 hot chocolate!
