Sandbagging Complete

Thanks everyone for helping out, the sandbagging is complete in our neighbourhood, for now. If you want to join the roving bands of sandbaggers (a bunch of them showed up in an OC Transpo shuttle bus), check out the city web site or ask around (councillor Jeff Leiper’s staff would know).

Flood info page at: https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/emergency-services/emergency-preparedness/flood-information-0 There’s even a video there about making sandbag walls.

Snow Shovelling Critical Time for the Rink!

Date: Wed, 23 Jan 2019 16:23:04 -0500 (EST)
From: kris.tom <kris.tom@sympatico.ca>

Hi Champlain Park

Urgent request to shovel the the snow that has fallen between 4:00 and 6:00 pm in preparation for the rain.

If shovellers could arrive at about 6:30 pm for about half an hour we should be in good shape to save the rink for the carnival.

Thank you.

Subject: Candle Lighting on Thursday at Westboro bus Station

Hello fellow community members:

The Westboro Community Association is going to light a candle and lay flowers to commemorate those who lost their lives in the horrific bus crash on Jan. 11. We invite you to join us on the platform on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 7:00 p.m. and do the same. There is no ceremony or event; just the community together lighting a candle, laying flowers . . . whatever you think would be appropriate. See you then.
