Around the Ward
I had the pleasure of joining the Bridlewood Community Association for their 7th annual member and volunteer appreciation barbeque. This was a fantastic event, with a wide variety of activities for the whole family. I would like to thank the BCA President Margaret Kellaway for all of her hard work with the community. I would also like to thank all of the members and volunteers with the association.
This was another great year for the Annual Canada Day in Kanata event held at the Walter Baker Park and the Kanata Recreation Complex. I enjoyed celebrating with residents who stopped by for some shade under my tent. A special thanks to Theresa Morin and her team of volunteers who made this year’s celebration such a success. Without their dedication, we wouldn’t have this great community event.
If you are bringing an exciting activity to Kanata or hosting an event that you would like me to attend, please contact us with your details.
The SPA Day Retreat is officially an international success. Their sister Spa, a luxurious Hotel in Negril, Jamaica called the SPA Retreat Boutique Hotel has received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. I would like to congratulate Tanya Farlinger and the entire team at the SPA Day Retreat and the SPA Retreat Boutique Hotel for their continued success.
Kanata Food Cupboard Needs Our Help
The Kanata Food Cupboard is a non-profit agency in Kanata that helps residents in our community in their time of need. The KFC spends all year-round working hard to gather food and donations for our neighbours. With the summer finally here, a lot of us are focused on enjoying the weather and spending time with our families. Unfortunately, this summer has brought a strain on the KFC’s supply. For the first time, the Kanata Food Cupboard experienced a shortage in hot and cold cereal last week. Please consider making a donation either at their warehouse at 2 The Parkway, off of Teron Road in the old Canada Post Office building or at one of our local grocery stores.
