Doug and Pam Champagne entertained the crowd and played their signature song, “Richmond.”

We’re not sure what the fox says, but we know he can dance. Above, we are assuming that the 200th mascot and Louise are doing the Fox Trot.

Richmond was founded as a military hub in 1818, so it was natural that the 200th anniversary parade had a large military presence with re-enactors and cadets.

Military re-enactors got the Richmond 200th anniversary celebrations started with a bang!

The MessengerRICHMOND 200 Richmond 200th anniversary weekend a celebration for the ages By RichmondHub.ca

The weather was great, the parade was great, the events were great, the whole celebration weekend was great! In a word “great” just about sums up the whole weekend event and the sentiment of all who attended Richmond’s 200th Anniversary Celebration. What a memorable weekend it was! Following Friday night’s opening ceremonies and a fabulous fireworks display residents were greeted Saturday morning with a brilliant sunny day and a fantastic parade to get the day underway. With over sixty entries in the parade there was a lot to see and do. An air of anticipation could be felt throughout the streets of Richmond. With a printed program in hand of “keepsake quality” most residents had a plan for the weekend and were ready to celebrate! Starting at South Carleton High School, travelling north on McBean St. then east on Perth to Huntley Rd. the parade drew large crowds all along the route. Entrants included the 100th Regiment, the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the 84th Regiment, motor vehicle enthusiasts, politicians, the Fencibles – Fifer & Drummer, the Brockville Infantry, Canadian Voltageurs, the Richmond Nursery School, the Orange Lodge, the Shriners, vintage farm tractors, military equipment, vintage fire trucks, numerous floats, and much, much more. At the fairgrounds following the parade the Fireman’s annual chicken BBQ, campfire cooked food and all food vendors were very well attended. Whether your tastes went to chicken,

pizza, beaver tails, lemonade, fries, ice cream, lemonade or other refreshments it was all there. All around the site you could witness the activities of soldiers and settlers from days gone by … pipers, drummers and soldiers were all in the bright regimental dress of times past. Further onto the grounds a military encampment complete with tents, soldiers on parade, womenfolk doing chores and guns being fired added an air of authenticity and historical perspective to the celebrations. The encampment drew the interest of men, women and children alike. The day was hot and left one imagining just how hot it must have been for soldiers dressed in the authentic woolen uniforms worn yearround in those times. Speaking with one of the soldiers he confessed that it surprisingly was not all that uncomfortable. Apparently the heavy wool had the ability to breathe, releasing moisture while protecting from the heat. In winter the wool insulated sufficiently to keep one warm. The Richmond Village Association unveiled a 7th mural as part of its’ Heritage Mural Gallery which adorns the exterior walls of the arena. Appropriately, the mural by local artist Karen Xarchos captures Richmond’s bicentennial milestone to a tee. Quilt shows, art shows, entertainment and refreshment in the “big top tent” and at the arena provided something of interest for everyone. For the children, the Zorb Balls, climbing wall, and face painting were a huge hit as were the “timeless” activities of bobbing for apples and

tug of war. For some of the older children trying the art of arm wrestling led by world champion and local resident Devon Larratt was an unforgettable experience. Llamas, chainsaw carving and sheep shearing added another dimension of interest especially for the children who got a gift of newly shorn wool and an opportunity to pet the sheep and see her milked. Some were even offered an opportunity to try fresh sheeps milk which elicited loud complaints of “YUK! That’s too dirty … my milk is a lot cleaner than that!” Once the shearing got underway they moved in a lot closer to the action. Throughout the day, people toured the fairgrounds, watching, observing and participating in the over 70 free events available. With so many great entertainment offerings there was never a dull moment. Just having a seat and meeting with friends before taking in another event was something happening all around. Saturday evening at the arena featured a standout capacity crowd event headlining Kelly Prescott, Jason Blain and Mehghan Patrick. The Goulbourn Township Historical Society (GTHS) provided a popular horse drawn tour of Richmond Heritage as well as a self-guided stroll through historic Richmond. Along the way participants were greeted by GTHS members in period costume and treated to a more in-depth glimpse of the lives of former Richmond residents. Sunday brought another beautiful sunny day with a gorgeous mourning for the Pancake breakfast at St. John’s Anglican Church and the non-

denominational church service at the fairgrounds. As the day wore on it became very hot and humid thinning the crowd a bit but not their spirits. The children’s events, shows and entertainment went on until closing ceremonies at 4:30 pm. The organizing committee again wants to recognize and thank all

the volunteers and sponsors who helped make this celebration such a success. Without them it would not have happened. Once the weekend arrived the planning and organizing was all over but not the work of the volunteers. To ensure a safe and fun event for everyone there were volunteers to help whenever

and wherever needed. Staff in decorated golf carts and Richmond200 shirts were visible, connected to a command post and ready to assist in any emergency. Everything was so well planned, thought through and implement paid professionals could not have done better. Happy 200th Richmond!

Manotick Arena naming, West Richmond well system on ARAC agenda RIDEAUGOULBOURN

WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

For every communal well system in rural Ottawa, there is an identified area that is to be protected to ensure clean drinking water. Property owners within the area of potential risk are notified and informed how they can reduce the risk to the system. The commemorative naming application for Mike O’Neil Arena pertains to the Manotick Community Centre. Recently, an application was received to name the arena inside the Community Centre as the Mike O’Neil Arena to recognize his many contributions to the community of Manotick, specifically in the hockey community. Most recently, Mr. O’Neil spearheaded the initiative to expand the arena, working alongside various

Ivy and Gordon Scharf Park

Working with local residents, the City of Ottawa has produced a proposed design for new play equipment within Ivy & Gordon Scharf Park located at 5535 Pettapiece Crescent, in the Village of Manotick. Once completed, the park will provide a new play structure for children ages 5-12, spinner, basketball key, accessible picnic table, accessible bench and new deciduous trees. Concept plans are available for viewing at rideaugoulbour n.ca/ivyandgordon. If you wish to provide comments, please send, no later than July 10, to

Fallowfield Road & Moodie Drive Upgrades

Beginning in July, the City of Ottawa will begin construction work at the intersection of Fallowfield Road at Moodie Drive. The work, to be completed by Coco Paving, will include a new westbound right turn lane, extension of the eastbound and westbound left turn lanes and an additional eastbound shared right/through lane. In addition, the intersection modifications will include paving the road shoulders along Fallowfield Road from the Highway 416 offramp to Moodie Drive

to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, stopped vehicles and emergency vehicles, concrete sidewalks on all quadrants of the intersection, as well as replacement of roadside culverts to improve local storm water drainage. The work is planned to begin in July and be completed in Novem-

ber 2018. From what I understand, efforts will be made to reduce construction impacts during peak periods. As a result, some work may occur overnight. Lane closures or reductions are not permitted on weekdays between the hours of 6:00am to 9:30am and 3:00pm to 6:30 pm.

Dentistry at Manotick bringing smiles back to local faces “Thank you for giving me the ability to eat the foods I like again.” “Thank you for giving me my smile back.” “Thank you for giving me a better quality of life.” These are just some of the familiar phrases Dr. Raja Sandhu of Dentistry @ Manotick hears in his day-to-day practice since starting to place dental implants eight years ago. Many people do not realize how a simple titanium post in their jaw can change their life. Many people stereotype dental implants as a very invasive technique and generalize this procedure to be very extensive and painful. In fact, the same people that have once believed this, and have since got a dental implant, now say that placing an implant was easier than a tooth extraction and one of the best investments they have made in their health. A recent testimonial from one of Dr. Sandhu’s patient’s states: “I want to tell you how much I enjoy my new dental implants. Best thing I ever did! When you first spoke to me about it, I thought it was a joke and my mind immediately went to ‘no way!’ I was convinced it was too expensive and I was not going through such a scary process! I ended up watching the process on the TV in the waiting room. Very good advertisement because it convinced me to go with the implants - seemed like the best investment. “I remember watching you work with a mirror and I was very very impressed with how much care you gave me and the expertise you demonstrated. I don’t remember feeling any pain at all. You and your team are so professional, kind, patient and caring throughout the whole procedure,

its great! Now I have wonderful teeth (implants) that properly balance out my mouth and it makes me feel great. You were right, it is the best investment I could have made.” The best compliment Dr. Sandhu can receive is that his modern dental techniques with implants and oral moderate sedation has improved someone’s quality of life. Implants have always been an interest of Dr. Sandhu’s, even when he first graduated from Boston Tufts University and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2004. Four years after graduating from Dental School, Dr. Sandhu received his certificate to practice Adult Oral Sedation Dentistry through DOCS Education. The ability to use oral sedation in dentistry is an amazing tool for anxious and fearful patients. The idea of sleeping through your dental appointment while you can get a brand-new set of teeth is a huge factor for someone who normally would not step foot into a dental clinic. By using oral moderate conscious sedation, Dr. Sandhu can successfully treat anxious patients who have a high fear of accomplishing dental treatment. You are not alone if you are questioning why you should consider dental implants as a treatment option. Dental implants have been around for decades, and although they have gained popularity recently, Dr. Sandhu has placed over 3,000 implants. Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural tooth and are the best treatment option if you are considering replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Shouldn’t comfort, longevity, and function be your main priorities when considering spending money and time on

your oral health? That’s where dental implants are the number one solution. They will provide a long-term solution to missing teeth, help protect healthy bone, maintain your facial shape and smile, provide better fit, comfort and retention and give you a greater ability to speak, chew and smile. Bridges and conventional dentures simply cannot provide you with all these long-term benefits. For all those reasons, this is why Dr. Sandhu tells his patient’s that dental implants are an investment in their overall health. Implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implant supported dentures (or over-dentures) have gained a major popularity in the recent years. New materials and techniques have made the retention of the implant supported dentures superior than conventional dentures. This procedure involves a permanent solution to missing teeth by placing 4-6 implants on either the upper or lower arch and then getting a fixed ceramic bridge placed on top. In 2016, Dr. Sandhu completed more extensive training under renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Lin so he could offer his patients an advanced technique called Teethin-a-Day. Dr. Sandhu is one of the few General Dentists in the Ottawa area providing the Teethin-a-Day procedure. As you have probably seen or experienced yourself, after frequent wear of conventional dentures, the ridges of your bone change shape, and shrink, therefore the denture does not fit the way it was originally fitted for. Some people rely on denture adhesives and glue just to keep their dentures in place

while talking, eating and coughing. This can really discourage a patient and make them feel as though they will never regain the ability to eat the foods they like, not to mention talk and smile without shame. Dr. Sandhu states it is one of the best feelings of practicing when he sees a patient’s face when they get their permanent implant supported denture. It really makes the worlds difference in eating, chewing, speaking and digestionwhich contributes to overall health! The Teeth-in-a-Day procedure presents a more permanent, high quality solution and is considered a full-mouth rehabilitation of the mouth and jaw...and the best part? This procedure can be done all in one day! This unique and convenient technique has given many patients hope, even when they felt like they would never be happy with the state of their teeth. A testimonial from one of Dr. Sandhu’s patients reads: “I expect that many people would hesitate going down the road of implants. However, after experiencing decades of loose dentures, I have finally come to enjoy firmly fitting dentures with the implant procedure. I fully recommend the process. I now have well fitting dentures with both top and bottom implants. Thank you to the team!” With a 97% success rate, implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. With regular hygiene appointments and proper oral care at home, implants are designed to last a lifetime. If you are considering a dental implant your next step would be to contact Dentistry at Manotick. Dr. Sandhu provides complimentary

working on the conversion in partnership with Envari (formerly known as Energy Ottawa) who will continue to help to convert the remaining streetlights to LED technology. As new roads are built in the future, they

will also be equipped with LED lighting. LED street lights have lower maintenance costs, offer greater light control, reduce light pollution, and allow staff to more easily monitor problems and even receive automatic

notifications in case of failure. Switching to LED technology is allowing the City to reduce its energy consumption used for streetlighting by more than 60 percent, generating annual savings of approximately $4 million.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Grand Opening of Anisha Park in Findlay Creek last weekend. The new park, located at Kelly Farm Drive and Sora Way is now open and ready for the community to enjoy. This new park whose name means “just for fun” was created through consultation with the Algonquins of Ontario. The park was designed keeping features of Algonquin cultural and heritage values. These values are represented with both the natural and social features of the park. I hope you will have a chance to stop by and visit the park soon, if you have not already.

Park and ride at Manotick Arena will take commuters to LRT station There are lots of things happening outside of the Village boundary that will have an impact or benefit for Manotick residents. In addition to road resurfacing on Mitch Owens currently underway, a new site for an Ottawa Police campus, a new housing development on Longfields Drive and the extension of the LRT to Riverside South will all be completed in the next few years.

New Police South Campus planned

The City of Ottawa Police is planning to build a new South Campus facility on land adjacent to the Carleton Lodge on Prince of Wales Drive. An open house was held on Tuesday, June 26 at Rideau Valley Conservation Authority building to present an overview of the planned facility which will be built in three phases. The first phase to be completed by 2021 will include Frontline Operations, Canine Unit, Tactical Unit, Marine Dive and Trail Unit, Community Relations and a Collision Reporting Centre. The second phase, to be completed by 2023 will include a communications centre for 911 and call centre operators and a new Strategic Operations Centre. A third phase is yet to be developed. This will be a welcome addition to the south end of Ottawa and make it easier to interact with law enforcement in our area. You can see the full details here: https:// www.ottawapolice.ca/ en/contact-us/SouthCampus.asp

New development coming along Stonebridge Golf Course

Mattamy Homes has just announced a new development to be built between Stonebridge Golf Course and Longfields (formerly Jockvale) close to Prince of Wales Drive


VOICE by Grace Thrasher, President, Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA)

at 2701 Longfields Drive. They are holding an open house for area residents on June 27 to present their proposed 158-unit subdivision of single homes and townhomes. Mattamy has yet to submit a plan of subdivision to the City for approval so this is an opportunity to provide early feedback. This area has another development by Uniform Developments for a subdivision with 34 semi-detached bungalows and four low-rise condominium apartment buildings located at 2741 Longfields Drive, just north of the Mattamy Development. The Uniform development will also include a park. A plan of subdivision and zoning amendment request have been submitted to the City of Ottawa for the latter. You can read more about this development at https://app01. ottawa.ca/postingplans/ a p p D e t a i l s. j s f ? l a n g = en&appId=__06TJ2P

LRT Extension Riverside South

It is good news for Manotick that the LRT will be extended to Riverside South at Leitrim Station on Earl Armstrong near the Vimy Bridge (where the current park and ride is located), Lietrim/Albion and Bowesville/Albion. A public meeting was held in Riverside South on June 21 to provide area residents with the opportunity to learn more about the new stations. There will be park and rides located at the latter two stations with feeder buses coming from outlying areas during the morning rush hour and returning in the evening rush hour to all stations.

Ice cream and Swampwater It was a day of celebration Sunday, June 24 as Watson’s Mill hosted its inaugural Ice Cream Lawn Social in Dickinson Square. Ice cream, toppings, cake and strawberries were on the menu while Swampwater Dixieland Jazz Band supplied the entertainment. It was a family outing at its best. Gary Coulombe photo

Manotick residents will be encouraged to use the park and ride at Manotick Arena and take the feeder bus to Leitrim Station or drive to one of the further stations to catch the LRT. The extensions are to be completed by 2021. If you would like to provide feedback on the proposed extension, you can submit comments here: http:// www.stage2lrt.ca/connect/

Community Garage Sale Raises fund for YOMA

Thanks to perfect weather and the participation of many homes, the community garage sale was a success and will be repeated next year. This year, the intention was to raise funds for Youth of Manotick Association (YOMA). The final total of funds from the community table run by YOMA volunteers and donations from the garage sale participants is about $500. Thanks to all who donated goods or money.

Picnic in the Park and Soap Box Derby

Don’t forget to mark August 26 on your calen-

dar for the Picnic in the Park held in conjunction with the Derby. There will be crafts for children, face painting, corn, burgers and dogs and a fundraising bake sale as well as entertainment by Manotick Brass. The Picnic runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Centennial Park. The annual Soap Box Derby, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Beaverwood Road, still needs some able bodied residents to help with set up and take down of cones, barricades, ramps, etc. If you have an hour to spare on Saturday, August 25 or in the afternoon of August 26, please contact me at president@manotickvca. org

Around the Village

Contrary to information we received earlier this month, the Farmers’ Market will not be opening this summer after all. Apparently it lacks an organizer and vendors to make it happen. Perhaps someone will organize one for next summer as we know there is demand for a market in the Village. Properties along Main Street are starting to be

sold so it looks like things are heading in the right direction. No firm indications of what future development of these commercial properties might look like as yet but we will let you know once information becomes available. The Watson’s Mill Used Book Store is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (not 5 p.m. as reported in the last column) daily for your reading pleasure. We are still looking for someone to manage Manotick Village and Community Association membership renewals. It takes a couple of hours a month to manage and you can do it from your home. If you are interested, contact me at president@manotickvca. org

Community Events Canada Day celebrations, July 1, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Fresh ingredients and quality give Burgers and Shakes good food, not fast food Thirty-two years can seem like forever for some people. For the Tohme family, they can’t believe how quickly 32 years can go by. It was 1986 – the same year that the Manotick Messenger became the local community newspaper serving South Carleton – that Burgers and Shakes was born. A young entrepreneur, named Albert Tohme, had gone through many businesses, such as a grocery store and an automotive body shop. He had his heart set on a quaint little place called Burgers and Shakes and Fresh Cut Fries, located behind Drummond’s gas station at Mitch Owens and River Roads. The Tohme family has more than succeeded. He wanted a business that used fresh food that was never frozen, and had a superior level of customer service. Albert and Nadia, with the help of their children, have built one of the most successful family businesses in the history of the Village of Manotick. Ali Tohme, his family, and his business partner, Katryna Chaykowski, say the formula for their success is not complicated. Fresh ingredients, great food, a great location, and top notch customer service have all played a part in making Burgers and Shakes a local business success story in what has been a tough environment for many. “The quality of the food is what has been bringing people back,” Ali said. “Everything is fresh, and we use all natural ingredients. We ground the beef our-

selves for the burgers. We use ice cream from Tracey’s Dairy (formerly Breyer’s) for our shakes. We are like a 1950s-styyle burger and shake place, where the focus is on quality.” That focus has made Burgers and Shakes good food as opposed to fast food. Ali Tohme, who started working with his parents when he was an adolescent, opened a location in Barrhaven at Strandherd and Kennevale three years ago. “When my father (Albert Tohme) bought the business in Manotick, he wanted to create a burger that tasted like something you would have at a backyard barbecue,” Ali said. “They were located in the back of Drummond’s Gas Station, and the business had been called Burgers, Shakes and Fries. Even though fries are still a big part of the business, he simplified it to Burgers and Shakes.” Albert Tohme bought the business in 1986 from a friend, who wanted to move to Florida and retire. The business thrived as a destination and eventually outgrew its location. They moved two kilometres east to the corner of Mitch Owens Road and Limebank Road, where they have been since 2001. Located across from the OSU George Nelms Soccer Park and St. Mark High School, Burgers and Shakes in Manotick also has a golf driving range and a mini-putt on site. The customers come back for the quality of the food, and the critics like what they have tried. Burgers and Shakes has won the Top

Choice Awards Top Burger Place in Ottawa, and they have won the Top Choice Award for Best Burgers in Ottawa six of the last eight years. “A lot of families go to the soccer park in Manotick and then come over for burgers and shakes after they are done,” Tohme said. “They know us, and when we opened in Barrhaven, we already had a strong customer base.” Tohme started working for his parents in Manotick as an adolescent and, like many in family business, and learned the business from the bottom up. “I started by peeling and cutting potatoes,” he said. “They gave me two dollars a day. But it was always a nice, crispy brand new two dollar

bill. It was exciting to get that.” While the burgers are award winners, many customers think the shakes are even better. “They use the best ice cream on the planet,” said one customer, who wanted to chime in when he heard Tohme talking about the shakes. “I come all the way from Pakenham just for the shakes.” The shakes, like the burgers, are made the authentic and old fashioned way. While most fast food places have mixtures they put into machines, Burgers and Shakes uses milk and ice cream and a wide range of flavours to make the most authentic shakes found in Eastern Ontario. “We have 36 flavours

of shakes, and we are always featuring flavours of the month,” Tohme said. The menu is simple, but it does go beyond fresh burgers, fresh but fries and homemade shakes. They also have shawarma, and other items like onion rings, deep fried zucchini and deep fried pickles. “A lot of people don’t realize it, but our number two item behind burgers has always been shawarma,” he said, adding the hummus and garlic sauce is made from scratch using his mother’s recipe. “I thought about getting a spit for the shawarma, but my father advised me against it. Instead, we cook our meat on the barbecue on skewers. Our customers love it.”

Tohme worked in the family business and eventually worked at TD Canada trust in Barrhaven. He saved money for several years, went back to school, and began planning for the opening of the family’s second Burgers and Shakes location. “We put our hearts and our souls into this place,” he said. “Our family does, and our employees do, too. We are all like a big family here. Some of the employees were even customers as kids, coming to eat with their families. “When a business has been in the family for so long, it becomes a part of you. This is more than a burger place to us. It’s my father’s legacy.”

DINING OUT turing Fea

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and selfworth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can

The art of making friends

be challenging. That’s because making friends may not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They see the same kids each day at school

and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by joining groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be

more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough patches in your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem



complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think when they put themselves out there and shows a willingness to build relationships. • Go to an interesting or fun place that will allow everyone to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life, it’s always easier to be yourself when you are relaxed.
