All In Hand

Samba Claus!

Miss Vicky Mon Aug 4, 2008

OK, not really. But that's what we overheard one kid saying to another a couple of years ago at this event: "Samba Claus is coming!". Samba Ottawa performs every year at a fun family event in McCormick Park, behind the Ottawa West Seniors Support Centre on Wellington between Carruthers and McCormick. This year's fun takes place on Wednesday Aug. 6th at 7:30 PM ( rain date is Wed. Aug. 13).

From the HEDC's announcement:

Samba Ottawa is again coming to play for the community in McCormick Park. Listen to and dance to this amazing Brazilian percussion band. Meet your neighbours.

The music and activities are free - cookies, popcorn and refreshments will be sold. Proceeds from the evening will go to youth programming in
the community. The last 3 years Samba helped us fund the Hintonburg Hip Hop dance program. Four years ago Samba helped us dedicate the play equipment that we purchased and had installed in McCormick Park in 2003 (they helped us fund raise for it as well).

Hintonburg "The Burg" T-shirts for sale - $10. Proceeds to youth
programming.
See you there!

Bridge over the river Clyde

Miss Vicky Sat Aug 2, 2008

Yep. It's been that kind of vacation. Here is Miss Vicky, home on a Saturday night, enjoying a glass of Beau's and watching the Clyde Avenue Bridge Replacement.

Who's with me?

Smash and Scoot

The Webgeek Sat Aug 2, 2008

So, I was strolling up to Helen's to get milk this morning and I noticed 2 police cars across the street. It looks like the Green Pedal scooter store was broken into last night. The front window was smashed and one or two vehicles were removed. Not the best start to a business day.

If any of you were mulling over a purchase, now might be a good time to at least put down a deposit -- give them a slight silver lining in to this crappy event.

Many thanks to St-Ambroise / McAuslan Brewery for Sponsoring our Event and supplying the beer.

100% of the profits will go to raise money for The Transitions Action Coalition.Transitions is a community coalition comprised of members from various youth-serving agencies and community interests in Lanark County. Transitions was formed to identify and address the housing needs of transition-age youth (16-24) in Lanark County. Transitions hopes that through partnerships and collaborative efforts, this gap can be bridged so that these youth can become self-sufficient and live independently.
Transitions involves youth in the program development process. This provides them with the opportunity to feel heard, and have their true needs addressed, rather than the needs that adults assume they need addressed. In addition, being involved with Transitions offers them a chance to connect with caring adults, social services, and also make productive use of their leisure time by being involved in the community.
How can you help? We are asking people to bring quality furniture, tools, pots and pans, lamps, beds,
pillows, chairs…
Please bring items to the Event. Contact Patrick at (613) 729 0406.
Live Music, food, drinks, beer, children’s games, face painting….
Time to Celebrate and have a good time. Everyone is welcome and invited

Party continues at the Elmdale House Tavern that evening with Ball and Chain and The Wreckers.
