Around the Ward
The long weekend proved to be an exciting time for the community. The annual Scott Tokessy memorial little league tournament was a great success. This highly regarded event played host to teams and their families from around our city and province, as well as teams from Quebec and northern New York State. Since its inception in 1996, they have raised more than $255,000 for CHEO. I would like to thank the Kanata Little League Baseball Association for all of their hard work in organizing this great event.
Residents also got to enjoy an outdoor movie at the Hazeldean Mall. This event, Movies in the Parking Lot, was hosted by the Glen Cairn Community Association and featured the film Mrs. Doubtfire. A special thanks to the GCCA for their continued effort to bring exciting events to the community.
August 27: Help me celebrate summer by joining me, in partnership with the Glen Cairn Community Association, for a Community Barbeque Meet and Greet on Monday August 27 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at Clarence Maheral Park and The Dick Brule Community Centre. There will be free hot dogs, drinks and entertainment for the kids. This event is rain or shine.
In Your Community
When school starts, for many families there are no worries of their children going back to school without being fully equipped. But for some the reality is that they just don’t have the financial means to get the items that their children need. Last year the Kanata Food Cupboard helped out almost 100 families, which included 187 children and 8 adults that were going back to school. There are many ways that the community can help these families; you can drop off the items at any of their grocery store bins in Kanata or stop by the Kanata Food Cupboard at 2 The Parkway.
Each year the Kanata Seniors Council gives out the Frank Valentine award to a senior person or couple in the community who have made a contribution to seniors’ quality of life. If you know someone who is deserving of this award, please visit www.kanataseniors.ca and submit your nomination by August 17th.
Residential Protective Plumbing
A reminder to residents in Kanata South that the opportunity to get 100% coverage for the Residential Protective Plumbing Program (RPPP) for those who qualify is running out and I want to encourage all residents to consider this important protective measure for their properties.
The City of Ottawa’s RPPP provides consultation and grant assistance services to property owners who have experienced a backup of water or sewage in their basement caused by the overloading or blockage of city sewers, or those who live in an area that is at risk.
