Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee
I was honoured this week by Lisa MacLeod, MPP for Nepean-Carleton with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
Tim Hortons Dragon Boat festival
I was very pleased to be chosen the Honourary Chair of Dragon Boat Foundation this year.
Join me this weekend for the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. This is the largest dragon boat festival in North America and will take place Friday June 22 to 24. The Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation to-date has raised $2.4 million for key Ottawa community organizations. I am looking forward to working with the community and local paddlers to achieve the new fundraising goal and I hope you are too.
Around the Ward
I enjoyed taking part in the opening ceremonies of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event last weekend at the Walter Baker Park in Kanata. I would like to thank Donna Morin, Jonathan Eisner and team for organizing such a successful event. I would also like to congratulate the participants on their achievement.
Summer break is just around the corner. This past week I had an opportunity to join a number of schools for their end of year BBQ. I would like to thank Cynthia Menary for her work in organizing an incredible event for Roch Carrier Elementary School. I would also like to thank Sharon Fine for inviting me to unveil the new bench at Katimavik Elementary School that I was able to secure for them from the City.
I had the pleasure of joining the Kanata Lions Club for their 35th anniversary celebration. I would like to thank all Lion members for their contribution to the community. If you are having an event and you would like me to attend please feel free to contact my office.
July 1: I hope you can join me as a proud supporter of Canada Day in Kanata. The Annual Canada Day in Kanata Celebration is one of the largest community events in Ottawa with crowds of over 30,000 gathered at the Walter Baker Park off of Terry Fox Drive in Kanata.
