Mayor’s Message

O

n behalf of Arnprior Council and staff, it is my pleasure to present you with the 2020 Spring and Summer Edition of Arnprior Life. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and volunteers for their efforts with these events and programs for Spring through Summer. The Town has brought together so many programs and events to keep everyone, regardless of age, active and entertained all spring and summer long. Many of the Town’s popular summer events will be returning beginning with the 4th year of the Arnprior Sunday Market Season on Page 39 which begins on Sunday, May 17th. The musical entertainment at Robert Simpson Park will launch with 10 hours of live music and family fun at Priorpalooza on Page 38 on Saturday, June 6th and continue every Sunday with Concerts in the Park from 1–3pm on Page 38. You also don’t want to miss Arnprior’s annual Canada Day Celebrations on July 1st on Page 40 and Arnprior’s very own Dragon Boat Festival on Page 41 on July 20th. Being the town where the rivers meet means that Arnprior is fortunate to have a stunning waterfront. Whether it’s taking a nice walk along the trail, dragon boating on the water, renting equipment from our lending hub to get out on the river or swimming at the beach make sure to take full advantage of the waterfront during this Spring and Summer season. The Town will also be undergoing a Waterfront Master Plan this year to look at how we can improve Arnprior’s waterfront in the future. This process will involve public sessions and I encourage you to participate and provide your feedback on how we can best utilize this great community asset. Staff are always looking for new program ideas and events to ensure the Town of Arnprior offers something for everyone. If you have an idea or suggestion for an addition to the Town’s recreation offering, please do not hesitate to contact the staff at the Nick Smith Center. Make sure you stay up to date with what is happening in Town by downloading the Town’s App, following the Town on social media and utilizing the Town’s website which is full of useful information. Enjoy your Spring and Summer with family and friends and be safe.

Manager’s Message

A

rnprior is a beautiful place during any of the four seasons, but if we’re being honest we look forward to Spring and are most excited for the arrival of Summer! Our beautiful waterways, parks and trails make it a wonderful place to visit and a better place to call home. Be sure to get out and explore them all. I want to take a moment to highlight some key milestones from 2019. In September we launched our online recreation registration platform providing the convenience of online registration for our programs anytime, anyplace. This platform also provides schedules of our drop-in programs like public swimming, and skating, among many others. Watch for more features coming to our online system in 2020 including facility bookings.

Another highlight was the opening of our Community Lounge which serves as a viewing area for both the pool and Glenn Arthur Arena. A special thanks to Ontario Power Generation for their support in making this room possible. Watch for more additions to the space in the coming months. Hats off to all our staff for their hard work and dedication to these two major projects that represent just a couple of the key milestones achieved during the past year. We’re very much looking forward to our summer events schedule at Robert Simpson Park. We’ve got a great line-up for Concerts in the Park (June 14 – August 16) and you can see all 10 of our acts on June 6 at Priorpalooza. Visit our Special Events calendar on Page 37 and learn more about what’s going on in our community this summer. We’ve had some fantastic feedback on new programs offered last summer like our Adult/Senior Dragon Boat Program that will return in 2020 as will some of our Fall and Winter fitness programs like kickboxing and bootcamp through our friends at Movement Yoga + Fitness Studio. While we have a variety of programs on the go for our seniors, the Seniors Active Living Centre continues to offer an extensive compliment of recreation and cultural programming – get your membership and enjoy the vibrant community at the SALC. When visiting our parks this summer you’ll see some beautifully crafted accessible picnic tables thanks to the Men’s Shed, a SALC Program. Thanks guys! 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. My family and I hope to meet you during our many events this Spring and Summer. As always, my door is open and your ideas and feedback are welcomed.

Through a confidential application process, we provide grants so they can play a season of sport. Applications can be picked up at the Nick Smith Centre or you can apply online by visiting https://kidsport.smartsimple.ca.

Grant Eligibility • Preference is given to athletes being introduced to sport for the first time. • Grants are for youth 3–18 years and under, and residents of Renfrew County. • Eligible activities must be an introductory-level sport that has a series of ongoing lessons, taught by a qualified coach; elite camps, private lessons, travel to playoffs/tournaments, championships, and equipment upgrades are not eligible. • Funding for sporting activities in which the child/youth is already enrolled.

Grant Characteristics • Grants range from $50.00– $250.00 and are paid directly to the sports organization or retailer. Grant eligibility is one (1) per child/per season. We reserve the right to limit the total number of grants per family.

6 Arnprior Life  Spring/Summer 2020

• Grants are designed to help overcome social and economic barriers that have prevented or limited participation in organized sport. • Applicants for a registration fee grant must submit a copy of the registration form that identified the specific registration fee for the child/youth. • Equipment purchase requests are limited in value, must be a reasonable cost and grant requests must be accompanied by a detailed summary of the items and all costs, prepared and endorsed by the retailer. • Grants are not meant to replace existing recreation and/or social service funding for sport participation.

Located in one of the most historic buildings in downtown Arnprior c 1896, it was 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.

EMERGENCY 911

Back-up fire emergency number: 613-623-4141 Non-Emergency Number: 613-623-4231 extension 2 67A Meehan Street, Arnprior, ON K7S 2B7

72 hours – Is your family prepared? Why 72 hours? Experience has shown that it can take 72 hours or more to mobilize a significant relief effort during an emergency. The 72-hour preparedness message is commonly used across North America by first responders (fire, police, and paramedics), governments and relief organizations. Canadians are encouraged to be prepared to cope on their own for at least the first 72 hours – that’s 3 days – of an emergency. This lets emergency workers focus on people in urgent need. To support their efforts, the rest of us need to be prepared to look after ourselves.

Why prepare your family?

Municipal Services

While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, individuals also have an important role to play in emergency preparedness. By being prepared to take care of yourself, you allow community resources to be used more effectively during an emergency – and you help keep your own family safe too. Simply put, emergency preparedness begins at home. Start today. Prepare your emergency kit so you are ready to take care of yourself and your loved ones for at least 72 hours.

Do you own an Ash tree that currently looks like this? Your tree is likely infested with a small wood boring beetle called the Emerald Ash Borer. Dead and dying trees can cause significant property damage and/or injury when they fall. Maintenance of dead and dying trees on private property are the responsibility of the owner and are required to be removed by the Town’s Property Standards By-law. Emerald Ash Borer, or EAB, is a non-native, highly destructive, invasive, wood-boring beetle that feeds under the bark of ash trees. All species of ash are susceptible to attack, except mountain ash, which is not a true ash species.

Since the insect spends most of its lifecycle under the bark of trees, it can be easily moved with firewood or other tree materials such as nursery stock, logs, brush and larger wood chips. This insect is able to fly; however its spread has been primarily along major highways and transport routes, and therefore it is clear that humans are the main vector of dispersal.

For information on the proper procedures for dealing with EAB impacted Ash trees on your private property, please see the dedicated EAB page on the Towns website at https://arnprior.ca/live/eab/. If you suspect that a dead or dying Ash tree on Town property requires attention, please contact the Town’s Environmental Engineering Officer Deanna Nicholson @ 613-623-4231 ext. 1832 to report the issue.
