The Valentine Skate and Chili Cook-Off warms hearts

Valentine Skate
Snow kissed rosy cheeks and roasted marshmallow smiles were all about at the Annual Valentines Skate on February 13 2015. Scenic Brantwood Park with a lush blanket of snow, stunning outdoor rink and billowing trees, would invite anyone to admire.

Children eagerly slipped into their skates to share giggles by torch light. Brass band songs soared and lifted our spirits. Family, friends & community sharing winter stories and laughter over ginger cookies and hot chocolate. Old Ottawa Easters from newborn to great grandparents all enjoyed a most memorable evening.

Children’s Garden Volunteer Open House

A number of founding members of the Garden Steering Committee are stepping down and the Children's Garden is in need of new volunteers.

In addition to positions on the steering committee, the Garden is seeking committed volunteers to help in all aspects of operations. These roles include landscape maintenance, skilled and unskilled gardening, woodworking, carpentry, general upkeep and other initiatives that volunteers wish to implement. With a few key volunteers staying on, incoming volunteers will have a wealth of experience from which to draw.

“The garden is ready to be passed on to a new group of volunteers who want to put their imprint on it,” says Rebecca Aird, one of the Garden’s departing founders. “There’s really an opportunity for people to step in.”
