Now that it’s starting to get cold and icy, we need volunteers to help shovel, supervise and otherwise keep the rink operating. Contact Jim Kot 613-722-7519 aka firstname.lastname@example.org to get in on the action. High school students can get credit for ice work.
See https://champlainpark.org/the-rink/ for the more about the rink and hours of operation.

Calling all heritage trees
On the heels of September’s ceremony to honour heritage trees in Ottawa, Forests Ontario has confirmed that it can list more bur oaks from this neighbourhood in its provincial registry.
The deadline for nominating a tree to Forests Ontario’s heritage tree program is December 31, 2017.
2 Champlain Park residents have kindly donated $500 to our community association, and the Board is considering how to spend this money. We invite our residents to submit suggestions to the webmaster by January 8, 2018.The suggestions will be considered by the Board at our January meeting.
So far we have received the following suggestions
- Double our contribution to the SJAM Winter Trail from $250.00 to $500.00
- Winter event related to the SJAM Winter Trail
- A special spring event in conjunction with our membership drive
- An event to celebrate our community’s history and ecosystem
- Refill the planters on Pontiac with better soil and buy spring bulbs
- A bench and rack for skiing
- A chess or ping pong table
- Summer bonfire with free refreshments
- New paint for the hockey rink boards
- Bocce court
We look forward to receiving more suggestions from our residents. Please reply to email@example.com

Dear Champlain Park Community Association,
The Heritage Inventory Project is moving into your neighbourhood! We’ve begun some preliminary research on your neighbourhood, and we would really appreciate any input from your community.
The Heritage Inventory Project is a city-wide strategic initiative which is evaluating buildings built prior to 1980 for heritage significance. Buildings that meet our design and neighbourhood tests are recommended for addition to the Heritage Register. For more information on our project, please see our website: Ottawa.ca/heritageinventory.

Boughs, boughs, boughs for sale
The Champlain Park Garden Club has many extra bundles of boughs left over from the two wreath making workshops this past weekend. They are nice for a mantle or decorate your railing and the smell is incredible.
