KS – January 26, 2017


Week in Review

You may have noticed the new heritage signs going up around our community highlighting our historical beginnings in the early 1800’s as Hazeldean.  If you have information on our history, please consider sharing with us for our 2017 project.


2017 Project

As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.

Please send me your ideas of who you think should be highlighted in our book and why.

We will gather all your responses and compile them into a memory book available to everyone and placed in the Library for future generations to have a snapshot of what made Kanata South special in 2017.

We also want to know what places and activities you believe are special.  Maybe it is a local business, your favourite place to eat, a park or maybe it is the piano in the gazebo by the pond at the KRC.

Details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.


Alterna Crackup Comedy Festival

The Alterna Savings Crackup comedy festival raises awareness of the need for improved access to mental health services in Canada’s Capital Region.  This year marks the thirteenth season of the Festival and includes many events around the City during February 7th-18th.  Details and ticket information can be found at www.Crackup.ca .

I am happy to be co-Honorary Chair of the Crackup festival and will be taking part in the Guinness World Record snowman building event – The Crackup Snowmania Challenge.  Join us in attempting to again break the world record for most snowmen built in an hour!

Be a part of history and help to raise funds for local mental health charities and community groups.
