Are you a struggling student artist? Work with a pro and help your neighbourhood too by documenting the amazing green transformation going on right here in Champlain Park.
If you have been down to the river you will have seen the pollinator garden at the end of Carleton, and the “Tiny Forest” that has popped up along Pontiac.
There are other delights in the woods too that are the fruit of local volunteers with the Champlain Park Community Association.
We would like your help (photographers, painters, sculptors, etc.) to showcase the plant biodiversity and volunteer spirit we are bringing into the neighbourhood.
Don Monet, painter and owner of Ottawa’s CUBE Gallery, lives here too and would be happy to mentor or otherwise support you in a local art project focused on the green transformation. If interested, contact Daniel Buckles (email@example.com) for a virtual introduction to Don.
We have several places for you to volunteer to help your neighbours: our councillor Jeff Leiper’s list, and now the Volunteer Ottawa / Champlain Community Support Network list (supported by the City of Ottawa, the Ottawa Community Foundation and United Way East Ontario).
Jeff’s latest message:
The Outdoor Rink recevied a whole set of New Boards in 2017/18!
New snow expected for 2018/19! Volunteers needed to shovel it!
Volunteers Urgently Needed!
Mother Nature and the Farmer’s Almanac are hinting at a longer, snowier winter this year, so we need extra help to keep our rink in great shape this season. To help with supervision, shovelling, and ice flooding, please contact Jim Kot phone 613-355-7519 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Jim will coordinate the schedule for flooding, scraping, and clearing the ice. You can also support the rink by donating a new shovel, tuning up the snowblower, refreshing the first aid kit, or donating funds. Or just show up with a shovel after a snow fall!
High school students can earn Community Volunteer credit hours by helping out.
Don’t forget to dust off your skates and get them sharpened… Come out and enjoy our community rink and have fun with your family and friends!
The first day of the rink is always weather dependent, it’s not usually sooner than December 27 but not later than January 1st.
The official last day is February 28, weather permitting the Rink Coordinator will try to keep open as long as he can.
Don’t forget to bring your helmet! Skate safe, have fun!
See https://champlainpark.org/the-rink/ for hours of operation, booking special events, and facilities.
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 email@example.com 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.
