The MessengerNEWS Good turnout for Municipal All Candidates Meeting in Manotick

About 100 residents of Rideau Goulbourn turned out to ask our two municipal candidates, David Brown and Scott Moffatt, about their priorities and focus for the Ward at a public meeting on September 20. The questions covered a variety of topics from their vision for the Village of Manotick, to safe injection sites to truck traffic and parking. Other questions related to protecting green space when developing new areas, safety concerns around traffic at Bridge and Main – particularly at the seniors building on Bridge Street, traffic congestion at Bankfield and Prince of Wales, garbage disposal and ensuring a balanced municipal budget. Each candidate was given an opportunity to answer all questions and to provide brief opening and closing statements. Both candidates indicated they would work closely with the local community associations, noting the strong community commitment in Manotick. They also supported the work of the Ottawa Public Library and supported increasing public parking in the Village Core. When asked about removing the truck traffic from Bridge Street, David Brown indicated he would work to make that happen and if it was not possible, then he would work to reduce it. Scott Moffatt indicated the easy answer is yes to remove trucks, but the reality is that many feeder routes on to Mitch Owens are truck routes so it is difficult to ban trucks completely from Bridge Street. Scott responded that it is important to find ways to bring residents and business into the Village Core as part of revitalization of the Core. David indicated that reducing property taxes might be a way to achieve

walks, the ability of persons with mobility issues to be VILLAGE able to move easily through the core, and connections VOICE between key areas of the Village Core.

Still time to input into Beryl Gaffney Park consultation If you missed the public meeting held last July, you can still provide feedback on the future of Beryl Gaffney Park. The City has over $600,000 available for improvements to the Park, located behind the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority building on Rideau Valley Drive North. The City is looking for input into how that money should be used. Feedback so far indicates the majority of people want to maintain the park as a passive park and would like to see betterARTIST: tree maintenance, PRODUCTION AFIN more parking and more garDATE: JUL 5, 2018 bage removal (particularly REVISION: in the 05 winter months) and measures to reduce noise from surrounding roads.

Jim Watson announces his plan for Safer Roads and Safer Communities Incumbent Mayor Jim Watson announced how he would strengthen community and road safety over the next four years “Earlier this month, as children returned to school, the Ottawa Police undertook an enforcement blitz in school zones that clearly showed that we still have a lot of work to do to make our residential streets safer for our residents, families and their children. Although we’ve made progress, we have to take an even more aggressive approach to make community safety a daily priority for each and every resident of Ottawa,” said Watson.

The enforcement blitz led to 540 infractions, including three people who were charged with stunt driving, 59 distracted drivers and 358 who were caught speeding in school zones. If he is re-elected, Watson will: - Hire an additional 75 police officers over the next four years, including fifteen new officers that would be dedicated to traffic and enforcing speeding violations in neighbourhoods - Hire an additional 56 paramedics over the next four years, in order to improve response times for residents across the city, including our rural and sub-

Trust us to grow

urban communities - Increase funding for the highly successful traffic calming measures in each ward from $40,000 to $50,000 annually, an increase of 20% Pilot new safety - technologies like speed enforcement photo-radar cameras to catch speeding drivers in school zones - Double fines in many high-risk school zones by designating them as Com-

munity Safety Zones - Decrease the incidence of red light running and collisions by adding an additional 20 new Red Light Cameras at the most high risk intersections for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists - Fund an additional 40 crossing guards across the city (where minimum warrants are satisfied) by 2022, for an additional investment of $1.2 million over the next term of Council

“One of our key goals is to reduce aggressive driving and speeding in areas that have a high concentration of schoolchildren, pedestrians and cyclists,” stated Mayor Watson. “If accidents do happen, I want our first responders to be able to respond quickly and effectively, which is why these 56

new paramedics and 75 new police officers are so needed. As Ottawa grows, we need to ensure that we have the resources in place to continue reducing crime, support community policing and enhance paramedic service throughout the city, including in our fast growing suburban and rural communities.”

Grade: 12 Parents: Lee Goodman (mum), Jim Goodman (dad) Brother: Chris (13), grade 8, Metcalfe Public Pet: “Gus, a small black lab with dwarfism, a rescue we adopted 4 years ago from the Ottawa Humane Society.” Pet Peeves: “People who are ignorant, people who choose to be mean, and people who chug their water.” Part-Time Work: “I don’t have a part-time job, but I’ve volunteered extensively at a not-for-profit in Almonte called The Hub. It’s currently under renovation, but is an excellent place to stop in Almonte.” Favourite Subjects: “Art is my all time favourite subject, especially the parts that tie in to Art History, followed by History (specifically around the 1500-1600s), and Politics. I am not very good at math, or really any of the sciences, but I do enjoy both Chemistry and Biology.

also enjoy some history books as well, such as Divorced, Beheaded, Survived – written by Karen Lindsay.” Who are your favourite authors? “My favourite authors include Sarah J. Maas, Holly Black, Maggie Steifvater, Danielle Paige, A.G. Howard, Garth Nix, and Brandon Mull. Accomplishments: “I don’t think I have accomplished very much in the scope of life, but I have won the OTHS Panther Pride Award. This award is given for students who participate a lot, and as the title indicates, show pride in their school. I help run the Rainbow Alliance Club with Ms. Cranston. (It’s an accomplishment in itself that we even have a Rainbow Alliance club.) Back in Grade 9 I won a Best Female Rower Award on the rowing team. Last year my artwork was featured on the

Activities/Interests: “I am involved in my Rowing Team at school where I row 3 nights a week on the Ottawa River with my teammates Carolin, Ava, Lauren, and Caileigh. I go to the Art Gallery as much as possible where I sketch and gather ideas for my University applications. I paint a lot and try to paint my favourite people in my life. For the past several years I’ve gone to an amazing Photo Camp during the summer called GTA Photography Camp. It is the best thing ever, and has inspired me in my everyday life. I do some swimming just for fun, although not with the school. I’m a certified lifeguard under the City of Ottawa guidelines. I love reading. It makes me so happy that I sometimes read very late and forget to do my homework.”

Why did you get involved with what you do? I love living life to the fullest, even if life is only in its infant stages right now, I think that participating in as much as you possibly can while you can, will leave absolutely no regrets in life. It’s important to put yourself out there, because no one else will.”

Career Goals: “My career goals are to eventually be an art restoration expert for the National Art Gallery of Canada. That starts with hopefully getting a major in Fine Arts OCAD at Ottawa U or Concordia. After that, I need to then get a small Chemistry Degree – hopefully through Queen’s and get into their amazing Art Restoration program. If none of that works out, then I just hope I find a job where I can sustain myself and be happy.”

A Successful first Free Dental Day for Dentistry @ Manotick

Dentistry @ Manotick held its first Free Dental Day on Saturday September 8th 2018 at their new clinic on River Road. As you may have seen advertised around town, this was a free day to have simple dental services performed such as a cleaning, tooth extraction or filling. The office wanted to give back to the community of Manotick and improve people’s oral health without the financial stress of paying for the servies. Many offices in North America perform free days similar to this, and it is a great and simple way to give back to those in

need. Dentistry @ Manotick saw a total of 19 people and performed over $5,000 of dental treatment. The office was asking for donations to the Terry Fox Foundation as they participated in the 5km Terry Fox Walk/Run on Sunday Sept. 16th and had a goal as an office to raise $1,000 to go towards cancer research. Dr. Grewal, the owner of the clinic, explained that the free dental day would be an annual event. As the office grows, they look forward to seeing a larger number of people each year. She was overwhelmed by the thanks and gratitude each person

showed towards the free day. The office would like to thank Patterson Dental, a dental sales company out of Ottawa, for donating dental supplies which helped make the event possible.

Richmond Town Hall: Residents seek leadership, innovation and action By John Shearer RichmondHub.ca

A “Town Hall” Meeting hosted by the Richmond Village Association Sept. 19th provided a crowd of approximately 100 attendees a voice and an opportunity to assess the two candidates seeking to represent RideauGoulbourn on City Council. Residents have a choice between incumbent Scott Moffatt and his challenger, David Brown. Brown is President of The Richmond Agricultural Society/Fair Board and has experience working as a staff member for Moffatt as well as on Parliament Hill. Both candidates have deep roots in the community. Other than a brief thank you to the organizers Moffatt stated that he would rather listen and answer questions than speak about himself. Brown took a similar stance after briefly introducing himself but added that one of the reasons he is running is it always feels like you are fighting the City to get more service. The format of the meeting was that of a question and answer session rather than a debate. The questions asked were revealing as they portrayed a sense of what ward residents are seeking. Several strong themes emerged from the questions posed: residents want visible leadership, innovation and action … in a nutshell, more value from their tax dollars. The Village Association opened the evening by questioning the candidates on the biggest challenges facing Richmond in the next four to five years and how they should be addressed. Brown would like to sit down with developers with a view to moving up the schedule for planned improvements to infrastructure rather than waiting until 70% of the homes are built. This is something he stated is unfair to existing residents. Moffatt acknowledged growth as a challenge for existing residents but felt the 70% isn’t necessarily true as there is a review every 5 years. He also stated “you cannot browbeat

developers to do stuff they don’t have to do”. Landfill vs incineration, the possibility of having increased garbage pick-up in the summer, and the elimination of plastics were the subject of several environmental questions looking for leadership, innovation and action. Moffatt argued for the status quo supporting garbage diversion vs filling up the dump. He would not support more pick-up in the summer arguing it would just cost more. Using plastic bags in the existing green bins will help the “ick” factor and the plastics can be recycled. He cited a 10 year process as being necessary to consider changes to the current approach and that it was unfortunate Plasco was a failure as it was a great deal for the City on paper. He is concerned incineration could result in a near doubling of costs (tipping fees) for garbage disposal. Brown would support moving to modern incineration solutions that produce energy from waste to offset their cost. He claims there are proven models in place in Canada and Europe that the City can learn from. He feels there is more than likely a private public partnership that could bring such a scheme to fruition. Citing the landfill in this ward as “unsustainable” he stated “I don’t want to wait another 25 years for a solution”. He is also prepared to look at increasing summer garbage collection and wants to better understand how it is residents now pay more than they used to for half the service. Questions posed about transit, accessibility, road safety, the state of roads as well as long range plans for a ring road were raised. Several residents cited a lack of leadership, innovation and action and stated that Ottawa as the Capital should be taking a leadership position. On transit, Brown recognized that with only 4 buses at rush hour, having one late is a 25% reduction in service. He will work to ensure improved on-time service and look for ways

Incumbent Scott Moffatt and challenger David Brown squared off in an all-candidates Town Hall in Richmond in September. to increase service. As for roads he stated the CIty itself recognizes 75% of the roads need repair and there is a $70 Million deficit in the budget. The current plan will take 10 years to catch up. Brown proposes using the $56 Million per year received from the federal government from gasoline taxes and directing that towards the deficit. Much of it has been spent on acquiring buses in the past. On the issue of accessibility he is concerned it is not just an issue for the physically impaired but also for seniors. He proposed trying a new type of crosswalk in Richmond that is being piloted elsewhere in the City. On safety, he was critical of Moffatt for only using $35K of $160 K available this year in the ward for traffic calming safety measures, the lowest expenditure of all wards in the City. He will treat traffic calming as a priority. He also agreed that looking into the future at the need for a ring road made sense … perhaps extensions to Earle Armstrong or a public private partnership for a new road. Moffat contends most delays to the bus service are

a result of downtown issues. (This should change with the LRT.) He stated the 283 is the best rural bus service in the City and cautioned that increasing service could result in a huge increase in the tax levy for the service. Moffatt agreed accessibility for the physically impaired is an issue and cited a plan to resurface Huntley with hard shoulders in a couple of years. ParaTranspo is available for trips inside the greenbelt and ROSSS is available and doing a good job for rural to rural destinations. On the roads deficit Moffatt defended the current approach saying the federal gas tax has never been in the roads budget. If you take it away from transit then you have to find money for transit somewhere else. On traffic calming measures Moffatt defended not spending more of the funds available to him saying he didn’t want to simply blow the budget but didn’t offer a solution for calming. He will try to ensure the budget carries over to next term. He did not support looking at a ring road. There was a question about tax increases and the candidates support for them.

Moffatt stated that he voted for all eight of the last budgets which saw increases from 2 to 2.5%. These increases were far lower than those prior to his taking office Brown pointed out that $26 million comes to the City through those increases. While he understands that most of that goes to pay for staff salaries and he is not advocating wholesale cuts he feels there is a need to look at where that new money goes. If elected, he looks forward to finding ways to increase funding for infrastructure services within the existing budget. On representing the ward, ward priorities and communications: Moffatt stated that there is no rural urban divide when it comes to the City. The job is all about how you work with others on Council. As for priorities he believes in making the communities better through planning for “complete communities” and making sure growth brings things the community wants. He also believes the old plaza needs to be redeveloped. Moffatt admits communications are a challenge despite

a strong presence on social media. He has done a series of town halls in the past and sees a need to do more newsletters. Going forward he would “localize” those newsletters to each area in the ward. Brown sees large shortfalls in basic infrastructure and services as the priority. He wants to look at the annual budget and federal gas tax revenues as a source of revenue to address these problems. A ten year horizon is unacceptable to him and he believes he can make a difference. He commented “the City does not have a revenue problem it has a spending problem”. He believes the four rural councilors need to work very closely together to ensure rural issues are addressed. On communications he pledged to hold annual community meetings in addition to weekly open door drop-in policy meetings. All his written communications will carry his cell number where residents may reach out to him at any time. Monday, October 22nd is election day. Make sure you get out and vote for the candidate of your choice.

Trip to Kenya brings something new and special to Third World Bazaar

It just keeps getting better and better every year. That was a common comment heard last weekend as the Bakker family opened the doors to the Third World Bazaar for the 2018 season. “It’s hard to believe that this is our 15th year,” said Dick Bakker, who runs the family business with his wife, Peggy. The bazaar is located adjacent to Bakker’s General Store at Mitch Owens and Manotick Station Roads. The Bakkers bought the business in 2004 from Paul and Evelyn Gervan – Peggy’s brother and sister-in-law – who operated it out of Kingston until 2003. The Bakkers moved the business to Mitch Owens Road for the 2004 season and used the same model of direct purchasing and destination, event retailing. The Third World Bazaar is a family business that purchases products from around the developing world and sells

directly to consumers. The Bazaar is operated over a sixweek period where our products are sold in a large barn, with a festive atmosphere. The Bakkers’ goal is to bring a wide range of exotic and interesting home décor, garden, musical instruments, art, furniture, and much more to their customers. The Bakkers buy the majority of their products directly from the artisans and craftsmen in the source country. They maintain very low operational costs, allowing them to pay fair prices to the producers, buy in reasonable volume, maintain product variety and remove expensive middlemen. Core to their business success is maintaining a good relationship with their suppliers, paying them a good, fair rate and providing advice on changing trends in Canada. Dick Bakker said that the bazaar is a good fit with the nearby Manotick village busi-

ness core, just down the road. “In addition to our local customers, we draw people from all over Ottawa, as well as some throughout Ontario and Quebec,” he said. “Many of the people will come here and turn it into a day out in Manotick, stopping here for a few hours and then heading into the village to shop or maybe have lunch or dinner at the restaurants in Manotick.” In preparation for the bazaar, the Bakkers go on an annual buying trip. This year, they visited Indonesia, Thailand and Turkey. They also visited Kenya for the first time. It was supposed to be an exploratory visit, but it turned into a major buying destination for them. “On arrival, it was shocking how quickly we were drawn to the warmth and enterprise of the Kenyan people,” they said. “We were not expecting everyone to be so friendly and accommo-

dating. Security and traffic issues were never an issue. And surprisingly, the countryside was much cleaner than we had expected. In 2017, Kenya banded plastic bags and the people were enthusiastically changing their habits. Everyone (we talked to) was happy about the change – they all said ‘something has to be done to clean up the country… we were fed up with the garbage’. We have decided to purchase a large number of the new re-useable Kenyan shopping bags for the Bazaar.” One of the most visually striking things inside the Bazaar is the display of wooden giraffes from Kenya. “The craftsmanship of Kenya is very strong,” the Bakkers added. “We were thrilled to quickly find wonderful craftsmen and women to provide beautiful carvings, Christmas decorations, clay jewelry and Massai blankets.

Third World Bazaar is located adjacent to Bakker’s General Store on Mitch Owens Road at Manotick Station Road. We also met with Ocean Sole (www.oceansole.co.ke), a social enterprise that collects old flip-flops along the coast and recycles them into colourful African animal carvings. We are confident that our customers will be very impressed with the variety of crafts of-

fered by Kenya.” The Third World Bazaar is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as Thanksgiving Monday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. After the final weekend, they are also open for a last day of the season Mon., Nov. 12.

Beautiful hand carvings and items from Kenya are new to the Third World Bazaar this year.

Watson’s Mill creating a 3D experience for visitors with accessibility issues Visitors to Watson’s Mill who have difficulty navigating the stairs will now be able to visit the different floors of the historic museum through a virtual 3D tour. Spencer and Logan MacPherson of Point 3D Commercial Imaging spent a day at the mill last month taking digital images with their Matterport camera to create the tour. The camera can capture a completely immersive 3D view of any space. The technology lets you “walk” through the space on your smartphone, computer, or virtual reality headset to experience it as if you were actually there. “We’re the first company in Ottawa and third in Ontario to have this camera,” said Spencer MacPherson, the older of the two brothers. Spencer has always had the entrepreneurial bug. “It started when I was a kid,” he said. “I was always knocking on doors looking for grass to cut in the summer or driveways to shovel in the winter.” Spencer did a high school co-op placement at Canadian Tire, and a simple moment there made him change directions on what he wanted to do with his life. “I had wanted to be a mechanic,” he said. “I wanted to work with cars. I was at Canadian Tire, and one day, I was coming into the garage and slush fell down on me and went down the back of my shirt. Then I saw the guys working on hot engines and then going out in to the freezing cold. I just didn’t want that, so I went in a completely different direction.” Spencer went into the advertising program at Algonquin College. “I wanted to become a graphic designer, but the opportunities in marketing really excited me,” he said.

Building outdoors? Choose Western red cedar, naturally! Spencer and Logan MacPherson took digital images at Watson’s Mill in Manotick last month. The project is to enable visitors with accessibility issues to see the entire museum. Jeff Morris photo

Spencer began to work as a brand manager for an auto care company, and did wedding photography on the side. He was asked one day to shoot some apartments and was asked if he could do a virtual tour. It got his entrepreneurial spirit excited. He contacted Matterport, the company that creates the cameras and software for 3D imaging, and after a few months, made the purchase of top end equipment. “I wanted to have a company by the time I was 25, and we incorporated three days before my 25th birthday,” he said. Spencer’s younger brother, Logan, is his business partner. Logan, 21, is in his final year at Ottawa U. and was able to get an entrepreneurial grant and co-op placement to work

full time for the company and to get it up and running. “We have been able to do 3D imaging and create tours for a number of different businesses and organizations,” Logan said. “We have done dealerships and retail outlets, museums and construction sites. There are limitless opportunities in the city for us.” Last month, the MacPherson brothers were on site in Manotick at Watson’s Mill, creating a virtual tour for the old grist mill and museum, which also happens to be on the list as one of Canada’s most haunted buildings. Logan added that the opportunities for museums and other organizations is endless. “There are great opportunities with museums,” he

said, referencing a museum that was recently destroyed by a fire in Brazil. “If there was 3D imaging of the museum before it was destroyed, it could have been preserved digitally.”

Local musician to take part in Ten Guitars for Alzheimer’s By RichmondHub.ca When local Richmond musician, Dan Deslauriers, heard about the Ten Guitars project, he said, “I’m in.”. The brain child of fellow musicians Denny Welburn and Paul Johanis, the CD pulls together ten local and Ottawa area musicians, doing ten different instrumentals and it’s all a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society serving Ottawa and Renfrew County. Hearing music helps Alzheimer’s patients recall their ‘music memory’ and music therapy is used to lower anxiety levels in patients. It helps caregivers as well and the Alzheimer’s Society will help families and caregivers put together a music CD of favourite tunes – for free. ‘Ten Guitars’ features musicians who have been involved in the local music

scene for decades. Deslauriers still works playing country music and songwriting. And the other guitarists involved continue to perform. Collectively they’ve been providing some of the best music to come out of Ottawa and the surrounding areas for decades. All the proceeds – 100% – go to the Alzheimer’s Society serving Ottawa and Renfrew County. Visit www.alzheimer.ca for more information. Check out Ten Guitars website – www.tenguitars. ca. Buy the CD online at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/ tenguitars or at Legend records in Ottawa.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Our fall colours provide a beautiful backdrop for Thanksgiving

It is the Thanksgiving season in Canada, and tonight the sun showed its presence only by a thin line of orange, after all-day of grey clouds scattered over our quiet town. The winds are sleeping, but somewhere someone is burning leaves and our village is “adrift” with the smoke, acrid and haunting. Long ago an Algonquin brave remembered the campfire smells during the cool moon, along the banks of the Rideau River. It’s like I hear the stealthy rustle of a

moccasin in fallen leaves; I am taken back in time, trying to imagine what it may have been like many years ago right here! It is time to harvest – after all, the first lovely place in the world was a garden and perhaps when the dew hangs we feel a closer kinship with the beginning of all things. From ancient Rome came lettuce and turnips, Mexicans gave us maize/corn, beans from Europe, the smart Iroquois gave us the squash, pumpkins and potatoes. The age-


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis old miracle has happened again, and Thanksgiving will be celebrated with thankful Canadian hearts. The birds, urged by ageold instinct, are collecting, holding meetings, circling and drilling, for the trek

southward. The geese can be seen in flocks in a long vee, orderly and straight and noisy but sometimes quiet and wobbly with occasional stragglers. The wonderful Canada Geese, handsome, aloof, wise, are a noble site,

and their honk is the spirit of the wilderness. My favourite poem “Indian Summer” with the lines - “Along the line of smoky hills the crimson forest stands, and all the day the blue jay calls throughout the Autumn lands. Now by the brook the maple leans with all its glory spread, and all the sumacs on the hills have turned their green to red.” Wilfred Campbell was the poet who lived nearly a century ago, in a stone house near Merivale Road

in Ottawa. And so we celebrate another Thanksgiving, how fortunate we are; we give thanks. There are millions who would trade places with us, even just to witness our season of fall. Look at the scarlet torches of the maples; listen to the sighing of the bulrushes as the wind whispers and the music of the river as it flows over the dam at Watson’s Mill, my favourite place! Here is a tip: do not eat turkey without dressing – you might catch cold!

PHARMACY Q: Do I need to get the flu vaccine every year? A: Yes, the flu shot is recommended annually because it only provides protection for 1 year. Although, vaccination is the best protection against the flu, follow preventative measures Pharmacist such as washing hands frequently, sneezing into arm/elbow and getting proper nutrition to stay healthy and stop the spread of the virus. Stay home and rest if you feel like you have symptoms of the flu (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, weakness). A pharmacist can recommend overthe-counter products that are suitable for you. Or to protect yourself against the flu, pharmacists will be providing flu shots by the end of October.

DENTAL SERVICES Q: Do you know how much your dental insurance will pay per year or when your new insurance year begins? A: A mouth guard is a soft plastic or laminate device used in sports to prevent oral injuries to the teeth, mouth, cheeks, tongue and jaw. Children and adults involved in contact or non-contact sports should consider wearing a mouth guard to prevent injuries to the mouth. The types of dental injuries that can occur are chipped or broken teeth, fractured crowns or bridgework, lip and cheek injuries, root damage to the teeth and fractured jaws. Any athlete may be at risk for oral injury and any injury can be prevented with the use of a mouth guard. Child or adult, a mouth guard is essential for all athletes.


VETERINARY SERVICES Q: If my dog is healthy, why do wellness blood work? A: Blood and urine tests are important tools for looking at the overall health of your pet. In the results, we can look for early signs of disease or infections. Many problems may not be obvious on a simple physical Dr. Andrew Sparling exam, but if caught early can be D.V.M. successfully treated or controlled, giving your pet a longer and better quality of life. It’s also important to have lab tests performed when a pet is healthy, so there is a baseline to compare results when/if your pet does become ill. Lab tests must be coupled with a complete physical examination and patient history from the owner to be of the most use. Blood work is usually performed when young to have that baseline and then annually once older. Ask your veterinary team what timeline is best for your pet.

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 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 join-

ing 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
