Week in Review

I would like to thank Mr. Carl Fraser of the Glen Cairn Public School and the Glen Cairn Hand Bell Band for coming to City Hall last week to perform the National Anthem for Council.   The performance was wonderful and memorable and we received many compliments!

 Congratulations are also in order to the Glen Cairn senior girls volleyball team who held its first ever D.I.F.D. Charity Volleyball Tournament to promote awareness for youth mental health.   The tournament was to raise both funds as well as awareness about/for the Do it for Daron fund and the Royal Ottawa Foundation.  The fundraiser was a huge success and raised $2000!  Well done!

 Thank you to all the community groups who organized events in their communities for Hockey Day in Ottawa, it was great to see so many brave the cold to enjoy some winter fun!
