Spring is finally underway and I hope that you and your families are enjoying the good weather as well as the many exciting ventures in Bay Ward and across Ottawa.
Now that spring has arrived let us all remember that children are at play in our parks, at wading pools, splash pads and in our neighbourhoods. I ask that drivers keep an extra eye out for children playing, running and riding bicycles at all times of the day.
Bay Ward’s Annual Mother’s Day Tea
I was pleased to host Bay Ward’s 6th Annual Mother’s Day Tea on May 6th. Thank you to all those who came, as always the afternoon was great fun and it was a pleasure to see each of you there.
I look forward to hosting it again next year! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the hard working volunteers and celebrity servers who joined us as well as the event sponsors and partners, Bayshore Shopping Centre, Accora Village, Seniors Solution and Carlingwood Retirement Community. If you attended the tea and would like a photo from the event, please contact my office.
Al and Betty Arsenault receive the Mayor’s City Builder Award
I was pleased to nominate Crystal Beach Lakeview residents Al & Betty Arsenault for the City Builder award and was glad that they received the award during the Council meeting of May 11. The Arseneaults are longtime residents of Crystal Beach Lakeview. Their love of outdoor sports – hockey, skating and curling in particular – fondness for their neighbourhood, and enthusiasm for building community come together in their commitment as volunteers, working with the City’s Seasonal Recreation branch, to construct, create and maintain an outdoor arena and separate three-sheet curling rink in Lakeview Park each winter. Congratulations to Al & Betty and thank you for all you do!
