Recreation Services & Schedules
Manager’s Message It is hard to believe that we’re entering the Fall and Winter season of recreation programming. While summer came and went far too quickly, I hope that everyone enjoyed our parks, trails and special events throughout the summer. A special thanks to all our volunteers and the local businesses and service clubs that helped in continuing the success of our many summer events. We are beyond excited to launch our new online recreation management program. Online registration is now available allowing you to conveniently register for programs any time, any place – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Be sure to visit www.arnprior.ca/registration to sign-up for your online account. A special thanks to our staff for the countless hours they’ve put into making this integral project come together. Our Fall and Winter Programming will feature many of the regular staples in aquatics, fitness, sports and lifestyle programs, and we hope you enjoy the many new programs were put in place including kickboxing, bootcamp, adult swimming lessons, youth pickleball and PA Day camps. We’re looking to add a little something to our Outdoor Rink (ODR) experience this winter. Rinks at Caruso Street Park and Olympia Park will have small boards set up, while the Legion Park rink will operate without boards. The Special Events calendar continues to flourish with new events, so be sure to circle the dates on your calendar at home (see pages 37-41). The very popular DJ Skate Parties (September 27 and February 14) and Rock & Splash Pool Party (December 13) will return and we’ve added a Haunted Halloween Walk (October 31), FamFest (February 17) and The Great Easter Egg Paint & Hunt (April 4) to name a few. Be sure to visit www.arnprior.ca/recreation for programming and event info or watch for news on the Arnprior Life Facebook page or download the Arnprior App. The Seniors Active Living Centre (SALC) celebrates its one-year anniversary on October 1. If you don’t have your membership, be sure to visit them at 77B Madawaska Street and find out about the many amazing programs, activities and events you can have access to. As this publication comes out, we will already be working on Spring and Summer programming and events and welcome your ideas and feedback. Please drop me an email, give me a call or stop by the Nick Smith Centre – my door is always open. To all our minor sports teams that are set to embark on new seasons, we wish you the best of luck and safe travels throughout the year. Cheers to a Fall and Winter season of fun and excitement!

Mayorâ€™s Message As a fun filled summer comes to an end there is still so much to look forward to in the coming fall and winter months. The recreation department has done an excellent job in offering a mix of new programs and old favorites to meet the interests and needs of everyone. These programs will be even easier to take part in with the upcoming launch of the long awaited online registration system. Council and staff worked tirelessly to ensure this system was brought to Arnprior after requests from residents on how we could improve the registration process. Of course those who prefer in person registration are still welcome to visit the Nick Smith Centre where staff can assist you with the new online registration or can process your registration at the service desk as in the past. Although summer is almost over, the very successful Arnprior Market is still in full swing for the month of September. Over 30 vendors will be on hand on John Street North every Sunday from 9 am - 2 pm. Make sure to stop by out new, free youth booth which sees young entrepreneurs under 18 selling a variety of items. Be sure to mark your calendar as you will not want to miss Arnpriorâ€™s Taste of the Valley Event which takes place October 6th along John Street North. Along with the plethora of recreation information and programing this guide is also a wealth of knowledge on events and resources in the community (Pages 37 - 46), and a variety of municipal services including finance, licensing, by-law, fire department, museum and library (Pages 47 - 61) Make sure you stay up-to-date with the Town by downloading the Arnprior App, following us on Facebook and Twitter, visiting www.arnprior.ca and reading the Municipal Matters section in the newspaper.

Greyfish Masters Swimming Program The Greyfish Masters is a volunteer run swim club, focused on improving stroke efficiency, speed and overall fitness in a friendly environment. Our members range in age from in their 20s all the way up to into their 70s. The range of abilities is just as large, from just starting to swim laps up to athletes competing in National (and even International) masters meets or Ironman triathlons. NCCP certified Head Coach, Shawn Moffatt, delivers workouts geared towards improving stroke technique and efficiency, including starts and turns of all 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly). Improving these skills is essential for those wishing to swim competitively but can also be beneficial for those training for triathlons or just wanting to improve their fitness. The workouts can easily be customized to suit individual goals. Many club members choose to compete in swim meets or triathlons throughout the year to display their skills. However, competing is completely optional and should not discourage new members from joining. For those wishing to compete in Sanctioned Masters Swim meets, there is a requirement to join Master Swimming Canada ($35/year). The club is open to anyone over the age of 18 who is interested in swimming laps and improving their strokes, turns and starts. Please note that this is not a learn to swim program and it is advised that swimmers can comfortably swim at least 2 laps of the pool without stopping. There is also plenty of scope for the more social swimmer, with social events throughout the year and breakfast after the Saturday morning swims. The yearly membership fee is for 11 months (pool closed for maintenance in September). For more information please check out our website at arnpriorgreyfish.wixsite.com/masters or contact Shawn Moffatt, Head Coach – firstname.lastname@example.org When: Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30–9:00 pm and Saturdays from 7:15–8:50 am Registration: September 16 - 20.

About the Arnprior and District Museum The Arnprior and District Museum is keen to share our local history with visitors of all ages. When did you last visit? Amazing exhibits, artefacts and information will enlighten and transport you back in time. Always changing, we are situated in one of the most historic buildings in Arnprior c 1896, the first to be designated as historically significant and architecturally important in the town. The keystone clock tower was designed by Thomas Fuller, the dominion architect, who also planned the Parliament buildings c 1860. Destined to become a parking lot, it was saved from demolition by the foresight and generosity of David and Jessie Gillies in 1963. The museum is owned and operated by the Town of Arnprior and receives financial support from the Ontario Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport, the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Friends of the Arnprior and District Museum, and Ontario Power Generation, among others.

Arnprior Fire Department Home Smoke Alarms Why do I need a smoke alarm? Most fatal fires occur at night when people are sleeping. A working smoke alarm will detect smoke and sound to alert you. Effective March 1, 2006, it is the law for all Ontario homes to have a working smoke alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas. This covers single family, semi-detached and town homes, whether owner-occupied or rented. What kind of smoke alarm should I choose? There are two different types of smoke alarms to choose from and they can be electrically connected, battery operated or both. 1. Ionization Smoke Alarms use a small amount of radioactive material to ionize the air between two electrically charged plates, causing a measurable current to flow between plates. When smoke enters the chamber, it changes the flow of current, which is detected and activates the alarm. 2. Photoelectric Smoke Alarms use a light source that is aimed away from a sensor in a sensing chamber. When smoke enters the chamber it reflects the light onto the sensor, which is detected and activates the alarm.
Where should I install smoke alarms? Because smoke rises, it is recommended you place the alarms on the ceiling. Avoid ceilings near bathrooms, heating appliances, windows and ceiling fans. The smoke alarm should be installed between each sleeping area and the remainder of the building or where a sleeping area is served by a hallway, install the alarm in the hall. Always install the smoke alarm on or near the ceiling in accordance with the manufacturer's installation instructions.
Arnprior Fire Department The Silent Killer Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week November 1 – 7, 2019 Carbon Monoxide (CO) is called the silent killer because it cannot be seen or smelled. Take action to stay safe from CO poisoning. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas. It can make a person feel sick and can be deadly. In the home, heating and cooking devices that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide. Carbon Monoxide Alarms • CO alarms should be installed outside each sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. It is best to use interconnected alarms. When one sounds, all CO alarms in the home sound. • Follow the instructions on the package to properly install the CO alarm. • Test CO alarms at least once a month. • Replace CO alarms according to the instructions on the package. • Know the sounds the CO alarm makes. It will sound if CO is detected. It will make a different sound if the battery is low or if it is time to get a new CO alarm. • If the battery is low, replace it. • If the CO alarm sounds, you must get fresh air. Move outdoors, by an open window or near an open door. Make sure everyone in the home gets to fresh air. Call the fire department from a fresh air location. Stay there until help arrives. Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
• When warming a vehicle, move it out of the garage. Do not run a fueled engine indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust pipe of a running vehicle is not blocked. Clear snow away. • During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove and fireplace are clear of snow build-up. • Clear all debris from dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace vents. • A generator should be used outdoors. Use in a well-ventilated location away from windows, doors, and vent openings. • Gas or charcoal grills can produce CO. Only use them outside. • Have heating equipment and chimneys inspected by a professional every year before cold weather sets in. • Open the damper when using a fireplace for adequate ventilation. • Never use your oven or stove to heat your home.
Municipal Services Residents are reminded that in areas with storm sewers, connection of a sump pump to a sanitary sewer or combined sewer is prohibited. Additionally, the connection of downspouts from roofs to any sewer (storm, sanitary, or combined) is prohibited and shall be discharged to the surface. The connection of sumps and downspouts to the Towns sewer system increases the potential for flooding in your home and leads to increased costs and stress on the sewer system and waste water treatment plant.
The Towns Sewer Use Bylaw (6227-13) states â€œWater from sump pumps shall not be discharged or drained such that it flows onto adjoining private property, onto public roads or onto sidewalks. Water from sump pumps may be discharged such that: it is contained within the lot until such time as it infiltrates into the ground; it drains directly into a roadside drainage ditch; or it discharges through a direct underground connection to the stormwater system servicing the property. In areas with storm sewers, connection of a sump pump to a sanitary sewer or combined sewer is prohibited.â€?
