I was pleased to joined fellow councillors, Mayor Jim Watson and local celebrities to serve breakfast at the United Way Ottawa’s community campaign launch. This event brings together Ottawa’s top business and government leaders, agency representatives and the general public to celebrate the start of United Way Ottawa’s annual campaign.
I also had the honour of speaking alongside Helene Campbell and Dr. Donald Chow at the “Life can Change in an Instant” motivational event for the DFAIT 2012 fundraising campaign for the United Way. I would like to thank Artur M. Wilczynski for the opportunity to speak to the importance of the United Way to our city. I would also like to thank Menna Andrews for all that she did to organize this great event.
AROUND THE WARD
I had the pleasure of joining some more groups for their Clean the Capital Campaign this weekend. I began with the Kanata Food Cupboard at their first site near their warehouse at 2 The Parkway.
From there I joined their second group who were cleaning St. Paul’s Church at 20 Young’s Rd.
Then I visited the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association for their 2012 Fall City Park clean up. My final stop was with the Kanata Youth Haven along the Carp River from Castlefrank to Old Colony. Thank you to all the volunteers for their effort in keeping our community clean.
