Our neighbours to the west in Westboro could use some help with reinforcing the sandbagging at the north part of Churchill Avenue. If you have an hour to spare (or a wheelbarrow or other sandbag mover), head over to there (about a 20 minute walk). Details in their Facebook post.
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.
The City has dropped off sand bags and now we need a few more volunteers to help place them. Pontiac Street between Keyworth and Cowley. Also, a few wheelbarrows would be welcome!
Due to the rain and generally miserable weather on Saturday, and fieldhouse scheduling conflicts, the Spring Cleanup has been moved to Sunday April 28. Meet at the fieldhouse at noon (not 10). See https://champlainpark.org/2019/04/19/spring-cleanup-2019/ for the rest of the details.

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.

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.
