Going digital Inside with GRC sign NEWS John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

City councillor visits with youngsters at Camp Curator March Break program at Goulbourn Museum See page 31

EMC news - It’s a sign of the times. It’s big, it’s digital and it’s coming to the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC). And despite some initial misgivings expressed by Stittsville Village Association (SVA) director David Jenkins at the SVA’s executive meeting on Thursday, March 14, the project has the support of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. Councillor Qadri explained at the meeting that the new sign, which will replace the existing 13 foot high blue sign at the main entrance to the GRC, will be 20 feet high, one foot higher than that allowed by the zoning and hence there is a need for a minor variance to allow its installation. He said that the cost of the new digital sign was included in the tender call for the second ice pad at the GRC. He said that the new digital sign will provide a lot more benefits than the current sign which has an area for announcing upcoming events and happenings at the GRC but uses lettering which is placed and removed by hand. See DIGITAL, page 5

EMC news - You can help raise money for the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association this coming weekend and it will only take you a few seconds. That’s because all you have to do is log onto the Kraft “Hockey Goes On” Contest website at www.krafthockeygoeson.ca and vote for contest finalist Cathy Bureau of Stittsville. If she

emerges as the contest winner for Ontario, $100,000 will be given by Kraft to Cathy’s designated minor hockey association, namely the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association. If she does not win the grand prize of $100,000, she could still emerge as one of four runners-up in her region of Ontario. This would mean that $20,000 would be coming to the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association.

Voting, though, is only open for two days this weekend, starting on Saturday, March 23 at 9 a.m. Voting closes on Sunday, March 24 at one second to midnight. And imagine what the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, which is a fledgling two year old organization,

could do with such funds. The money would be used not only for ice rental, for jerseys, for development costs for coaches and trainers and for equipment such as goalie pads, pucks, pylons and coaching boards. In addition, the Association would set up a bursary to help any families that could not otherwise enroll their children in hockey. See YOUR ONLINE VOTE, page 6

Meeting for reaction to MOE comments Special to the News

EMC news - There’s a public meeting in Stittsville this Thursday, March 21 dealing with the proposed new Carp Road landfill. The meeting, being hosted by the Stittsville Village Association (SVA), will take place in the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena beginning at 7 p.m. The focus of the meeting will be compiling comments from the public in response to comments that the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has made with regard to the amended Environmental Assessment (EA) submitted to Waste Management about its proposed new West Carleton Environmental Centre located on the Carp Road site of the Waste Management landfill that is now closed. Comments emanating from this public meeting will be incorporated by the SVA in the comments which it will be submitting to the MOE on its review of the Waste Management EA. Friday, March 29 is the deadline for the submis-

sion of such comments to the MOE. The public has a five and a half week period ending Friday, March 29 to make comments on the MOE review of the EA. Ottawa city staff will be making some recommendations about the MOE comments to Ottawa city council at its March 27th meeting which is prior to March 29th deadline for comment submission. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, addressing the issue at the SVA’s executive meeting on Thursday, March 14, said that in his view the MOE has not listened to any of the community’s concerns regarding protecting property values, odour abatement and other matters. He says that the MOE response to date has been that Waste Management carried out the EA process appropriately. The SVA executive felt that a public meeting to receive input and comments about the issue should be held before the SVA compiled its comments for submission to the MOE.

Barber is shaving beard to raise funds for Cancer Foundation Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A Stittsville resident who is a Kanata barber is raising funds by shaving his beard in memory of his wife.

Special to the News

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tea time in Ashton this Saturday, March 23. The Ashton United Church Women are holding a spring tea, bake sale and bazaar at the Ashton United Church in Ashton this Saturday, March 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be a great place to drop into for a delicious, nutritious lunch featuring a salad plate, tea, coffee and dessert. All of this for $8 for adults and $4 for children from 4 to 12 years of age. Everyone is welcome to attend.

And in a twist of goodwill, an anonymous donor in the Ottawa area is matching all funds raised, dollar for dollar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all gets attributed to momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tribute fund, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool,â&#x20AC;? said Busa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double the impact.â&#x20AC;? The money raised through the tribute fund will stay local. Morabito and Carmen were married for 41 years. They met in night school at the former High School of Commerce in an English class. Morabito immigrated from Italy, while Carmen moved from Ecuador. Carmen was first diagnosed with breast cancer 30 years before she passed away. The cancer moved into her spine and bones; and during her battle she underwent radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was always living with cancer,â&#x20AC;? said Busa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was an amazing

woman, a true example of strength and courage.â&#x20AC;? The familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to raise as much as possible, in order to give back to the hospitals that helped them during rough times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over those years we had so much support from the hospitals,â&#x20AC;? said Busa. Members of the public are invited to watch the shaving event, which will take place this Saturday, March 23 at 11 a.m. in the shop, located at 2 Beaverbrook Rd. in Kanata. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are welcome to stop by,â&#x20AC;? said Morabito, adding those who donate have the opportunity to cut off a chunk of his beard. His partner, Peter Busa, will be doing the final shave. To donate, visit ottawacancer. ca/carmenmorabito.aspx or visit the Kanata Barbershop, 2 Beaverbrook Rd.

JESSICA CUNHA /METROLAND

This Saturday, March 23, a day after the first-year anniversary of Carmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing, Morabito will shave his whiskers to raise funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, which has a tribute fund set up in Carmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. The idea came to him after his granddaughters convinced him to grow a beard in time for Christmas. He began growing his facial hair in October, so he could look like Santa in time for the holidays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got the idea from Movember,â&#x20AC;? said Morabito, who lives in Stittsville. Movember encourages men to grow mustaches and raise funds for prostate cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of putting a positive spin on this,â&#x20AC;? said his daughter Vicky Busa who also lives in Stittsville.

en Martin who delivered a stream of familiar classics from the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right up through the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. So, you heard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be My Baby,â&#x20AC;? one of the most famous songs by the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American girl group The Ronettes; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday,â&#x20AC;? the 1965 song by The Beatles that has become one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have You Ever Seen The Rain,â&#x20AC;? a 1970 release by Creedence Clearwater Revival; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Daniel,â&#x20AC;? Elton Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1973 hit that was inspired by the Vietnam War, telling the story of a fictional veteran returning home. Indeed, Gretchen remarked that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danielâ&#x20AC;? was always a popular song when she played the Legion circuit due to its appeal to veterans. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget American pianist/singer/ songwriter Billy Joel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gretchen sure didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as she sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honesty,â&#x20AC;? Billy Joelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1979 piano ballot, as well as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vienna,â&#x20AC;? his 1977 hit. Back from a trip to Nashville last fall where she played backup for a female performer, Gretchen admitted that she had â&#x20AC;&#x153;caught the feverâ&#x20AC;? when there, with music everywhere and so many good singers performing. And so her offerings included a number of country classics such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Just Want To Dance With You,â&#x20AC;? the

1998 release by country music living legend George Strait; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy,â&#x20AC;? the Patsy Cline 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song written by Willie Nelson that has become a country music standard; and even the iconic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tennessee Waltz,â&#x20AC;? made famous by Patti Page in 1950 and now one of the official songs of the state of Tennessee. Gretchen Martin, who was born and raised in Winnipeg, began piano lessons at the age of five. Her father was a church organist and music professor at the University of Manitoba while her mother, who was a piano teacher, still is a church organist. She thinks that the best pop music of all time happened in the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when she was growing up. Her idols include Sir Elton John, Billy Joel and Lionel Richie, among others. Gretchen currently is serving part-time in the Canadian Forces as a naval officer in the capacity of supply officer with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Falkland at Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake in Ottawa. The Gaia Java Coffee Company shop holds Friday music evenings every week, starting at 7 p.m. There is no admission with everyone welcome to attend, although an early arrival is recommended for the best seating.

Digital sign at GRC Continued from page 1

Councillor Qadri said that these letter signs are not being installed these days but rather ones with digital lettering. “The digital sign is so easy to work with,” he said, noting that digital signs can be easily changed to announce messages about upcoming events and activities at the GRC. Councillor Qadri also said that with the city’s initiative of naming recreation facilities with corporate sponsor names, this new larger, digital sign will play a role in that, whether it is Pepsi Cola or Tim Hortons or another corporate sponsor who purchases the naming rights to the GRC. However, councillor Qadri made it clear that he had insisted that the “G” logo representing Goulbourn be on the top of the new sign as it is with the existing sign. SVA director David Jenkins had expressed concerns about the size, cost and digital nature of the new sign. “The thing is going to be absolutely huge,” he told the SVA executive, almost twice the size of the existing sign. He questioned why a sign of that size is needed at the GRC. He also wondered about the cost, noting that such digital signs must not be cheap. He suggested that other parks and recreation needs in the community could be met with the funds rather than installing this new digital sign. Commenting that in his view people do not look at digital signs these days since they already have such information on their own smart phone devices, Mr. Jenkins suggested that the city go back to the drawing board and come up with something less ambitious in terms of a sign for the GRC. SVA president Phil Sweetnam lamented that the city would not be installing a digital component in the existing sign, utilizing the existing sign and saving some money. However, SVA director Theresa Qadri expressed support for the new digital sign, saying that in her view digital signs work. “It’s a fantastic way of doing it,” she said about the new sign, adding that community notices will probably be able to be displayed on the new sign. She noted that the new city of Ottawa fire hall on Iber Road has a digital sign. She also suggested that it might be more expensive to try to retrofit the existing sign with a digital component than to install the larger new digital sign.

Kraft received over 1000 nominations for the contest from across the country with a panel of judges narrowing this list down to the current 100 finalists. So Cathy Bureau has done well to get to this finalist stage of the contest. Indeed, she is the only finalist from the city of Ottawa. A groundswell of online voting support from the Stittsville and Goulbourn community could result in success and the money flowing to the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association. Altogether, Kraft is giving away one million dollars in this Kraft “Hockey Goes On” Contest, supporting minor hockey associations across Canada. Kraft has chosen the finalists in the five regions (Pacific, West, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic) across the country and will be awarding one winner from each region $100,000 to be given to their chosen minor hockey association which in Cathy Bureau’s case is the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association. In addition, Kraft will be given $20,000 to

four runner-ups in each region for their selected minor hockey associations. Cathy Bureau, who is the founder and president of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, has a long record as a women’s hockey pioneer in the Ottawa area. Inducted into the Nepean Sports Wall of Fame in 2009, she has served as president of the Ottawa District Women’s Hockey Association and helped to organize the 1990 Women’s World Hockey Championship hosted in Ottawa. An outstanding player in her own right in her youth, she was the first female hockey player from Canada to play at an American university on a scholarship. She starred in her university years, earning a place in the university’s hall of fame. Cathy also was the first female level four hockey referee in the Ottawa area. The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association was the brainchild of Cathy Bureau as she wanted to see Goulbourn have a local organization that could provide the opportunity for girls to play hockey with a Goulbourn-based association. Girls from Goulbourn have traditionally had to register with the Kanata Girls Hockey Association in order to play hockey. Cathy got the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association started in 2011 with no ice time and no money but armed with 24 girls from Goulbourn who wanted to play. She found a kindred

spirit and benefactor in the late Joan Thorneycroft of Stittsville whose family provided a much needed donation of $5,000 to the fledgling organization. This allowed the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association to purchase jerseys for its players. The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association teams are known as the Goulbourn Rockets in a tribute to Mrs. Thorneycroft who in her youth played hockey for a team known as the Rockets. Indeed, Goulbourn Rockets teams have a model rocket which they place at centre ice before their games, with the rocket bearing the initials JT for Joan Thorneycroft and the number 34 which was the number on the ceremonial Goulbourn Rockets jersey which the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association presented to Mrs. Thorneycroft. After an initial season of on-ice practices emphasizing skill development, as well as some exhibition games, the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association continued its development this season, gaining acceptance into the Ottawa District Women’s Hockey Association. The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association iced one novice and one atom team this season and also has an initiation-level program for young hockey enthusiasts. It has an ice allocation from the city of Ottawa which it hopes to expand in the upcoming season with the possibility of icing a peewee level team. With this program growth and enthusiasm, receiving funds from the Kraft “Hockey Goes On” Contest would be a godsend and would allow the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association to continue to offer Goulbourn girls a hockey experience that not only develops their hockey skills but also provides fun and a team experi-

A fresh look at consultation

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news when the city rethinks a process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for decades. Public consultations deserve a new look. Until now, the city has come to the public with a proposal and then asked people to react. It leaves residents with the impression that the city has already made up its mind about what it wants to do and is just going through the motions of consulting. Michael Powell from the Dalhousie Community Association has commented that city consultations are â&#x20AC;&#x153;like always being asked what you want on your hot dog, but never what you might like to eat.â&#x20AC;? There is also a sentiment among members of the public that consultations happen too late in the process to make a difference. Residents find out about a new city bylaw, p[olicy or program after it has been finessed with city staff and politicians behind the scenes. The city really needs to look at not just how it seeks input, but when. There is also value to tapping a diverse selection of people so that the true diversity of public opinion is captured. Too often, community-level

consultations, as well as public open houses at city hall, are like a reunion. The same people come out for everything. Mostly its because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re engaged and they have time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; retirees are one example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also because the processes, mechanisms and jargon are confusing and off-putting for outsiders and people who are new to civic engagement. The city needs to find a way to get all those voices into the process. Formal meetings alone donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the job. While on-the-street interviews may not capture opinions of people who have given an issue considerable thought, they are grassroots ways to find out how people who pass by a particular property feel about development plans. It would also be easy to phone people who live near a proposed building site, and then call them back after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a chance to consider the plans. To expand the circle of input even further, the city could involve students at local schools. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kids of today who will often have to live with the results of both good and bad planning deicions for decades to come.

Tackling yet another pesky first world problem

Y

ouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably familiar with the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;first world problem.â&#x20AC;? It refers to the kinds of things people living in a privileged country like ours worry about. Not having enough room in the garage for the second car would be an example. If you look for people with first world problems you find them all around you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the letters to the editor, on the phone-in shows, at parties, in politics. There are people whose wi-fi is too slow, who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough cable channels, who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a tax break for their private school fees. Canada as a whole is beset with first world problems. Anyone who travels to less privileged countries is always struck by this on returning. You have just come from a place where people are not free and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough to eat and you pick up the Canadian newspaper and find that our politicians are arguing about the constitution. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a first world problem. Some places donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have constitutions. In some places, arguing about the constitution gets you locked up. All of this is by way of introduction to the fact that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the new money. Those new polymer 50s and 20s are too shiny, not to mention slippery. Mind you, W.L. Mackenzie

Funny Town King, who is on the 50, was pretty slippery himself. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like money. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even smell like money. There have been questions about the authenticity of the maple leaf. And so on and so on. First world problem: many people in the world would like to have new Canadian 50s and 20s. Still ... you can see right through the new money if you hold it up to the light. Does that seem like money to you, something you can see through? What it seems like is play money. The kids see these shiny pieces of not-exactly-paper lying around that they can see through and they want to play with them. They are more fun to play with than the Published weekly by:

Canadian Tire money which, by comparison, now seems more like real money. So does Monopoly money, come to think of it. First world problem: Canadian kids play with money. Not too much was heard of all this until fairly recently. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the first new plastic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, polymer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bills issued in 2011 were 100s and 50s. The plastic 20 didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit until last November, which is when ordinary people began to notice that the new bills stuck together, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work in vending machines and smelled wrong. In a related development, a poll reported in the Globe and Mail says that the people most likely to be happy with the new money are people with high income and education. Seventy-three per cent of people earning more that $100,000 a year were happy with the new money. And why not? If you had lots of 100s and 50s, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy too. Somehow your displeasure over bills sticking together would vanish if the bills sticking together were 100s. The Bank of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official explanation for the use of shiny money is that it will last longer (not that many of us will have it around long enough to notice) and that it is harder to counterfeit. That, you can understand.

Also, the new 20 depicts the Vimy Memorial, which is a worthy thing to do. However, this could have been done without converting everything to plastic. Printing it up on good old paper would have done the trick. (By the way, do you remember when the previous version of the paper bill was introduced? That was 2004. It was durable, had cotton in it, and hard to counterfeit.) More is to come. By the end of the year, new polymer 5s and 10s will be issued. Then the complaining will begin all over again. As Canadians know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough living in the first world.

Quilters Nancy Grundy, left, of North Gower and Joanne Hunter, right, of Richmond stand with Nancy’s current quilt project with an agricultural theme which was on display at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show at the Ernst and Young Centre in Ottawa last week.

Quilting at Ottawa Valley Farm Show Special to the News

EMC news - Quilting was part of the Ottawa Valley Farm Show in Ottawa this year for the first time. Richmond area quilter Joanne Hunter and North Gower quilter Nancy Grundy were on hand throughout the show which was held at the Ernst and Young Centre near the airport in Ottawa from Tuesday, March 12 to Thursday, March 14. The two ladies offered quilting technique demonstrations each day during the show – techniques such as pinwheels and paper piercing. The idea was to try to get show-goers interested in the craft. The quilting display also featured several

antique quilts from local collections. One quilt on display was a “crazy quilt” made by Nancy Grundy’s great-grandmother, grandmother and mother in 1914. Crazy quilts like it were made of scraps of leftover fabric which were sewn together and then embroidered. These quilts often featured the date and quilter’s name somewhere on one of the pieces. The display also included a quilt on which Nancy Grundy is currently working, featuring an agricultural theme with quilted pictures of cows. “It’s very traditional in the farming community to be quilting,” Ms. Hunter said. “It brings back memories for people.” With notes from Emma Jackson

EMC news - Treasure your own family stories, interviewer and story recorder Linda Preston told the more than 50 attending last Saturday’s March program presentation of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. The lifelong Goulbourn resident who has compiled two volumes full of family stories based on interviews with Goulbourn residents called “Voices from Goulbourn’s Past” said that everyone should write their family stories down. “Don’t let them be lost,” she said, commenting that people should look upon the recording of such stories as a gift to their children and grandchildren. Ms. Preston’s sister, Cheryl McCoy, who was unable to be at the presentation due to illness but who sent along a message with her sister, reminded people that the greatest gift

that they can give their elders is to take the time to listen to their stories. “They all have a story to tell,” she conveyed in her message. Ms. Preston, in her presentation, said that she and her sister grew up in Goulbourn with a large extended family and were always listening to stories told by grandmothers and aunts and uncles. “We always loved to listen to these stories,” she said but expressed the regret that these stories were never written down and so are now lost except for the memories of she and her sister. She said that this situation had a lot to do with the “push” by she and her sister to preserve other people’s stories and make sure that these stories are not lost and forgotten. Ms. Preston said that Goulbourn needs to preserve its stories and hence its identity, especially important in these years since amalgamation when, she lamented, Goulbourn’s communities don’t seem to exist any longer, losing out to the term “West Ottawa.” She said that in their interviews, she and her sister Cheryl have tried to represent a geographical crosssection of Goulbourn. Other factors in deciding on whom to interview include how a particular family has impact the community over the years and also whether the family is a descendant of Goulbourn’s pioneers. She said that the interview process is time consuming, usually taking three one-hour interview sessions. Then there is the transcribing of the recorded interview and then providing a copy to the person interviewed for checking. Ms. Preston, who lives in Richmond, said that initial responses from people to a request for an interview frequently brings responses like the person has nothing much of importance to say and that the person’s family was not that important in the community. Yet, interviews with such people at times end up with extensive, interesting interviews. In addition, the person is usually appreciative that someone has taken an interest in the family’s history and its stories. She said that she and her sister Cheryl both get great satisfaction from saving someone’s stories and sharing them in print, complete with accompanying photographs. She said that doing and compiling these interviews in printed form have allowed both she and Cheryl to learn a lot about the extensive family connections in Goulbourn where previous times have seen large families

and limited transportation, meaning that local marriages were extensive. She also mentioned that the interviews have revealed some language oddities – phrases used by oldtimers like Willie Anderson, Willie Mains, and Robbie Hobbs. Ms. Preston also noted some unusual discoveries such as a medicinal liquor prescription for a quart of rye issued in 1919 to Willie Anderson or Emery Smith’s steam engine operator’s license. She also uncovered things like a recipe for a treatment for bad coughs and a mixture of feed for range turkeys. She and her sister Cheryl are currently working on a third volume of the “Voices from Goulbourn’s Past” series. A number of interviews have already been done and more are in the works. Illness and Ms. Preston’s recent arm injury due to ice have delayed the work somewhat. In thanking Ms. Preston for her presentation, Georgia Derrick, who arranges these Historical Society monthly presentations, expressed the hope that everyone was writing their stories down while compiling their family histories. She said that hopefully someday people will want to know what today’s current Goulbourn residents did in their daily lives. Copies of “Voices from Goulbourn’s Past,” both volume one and volume two, are available by contacting Linda Preston at 613-838-3115. Interviews in volume one include those with Herb Arbuckle, Freemy McCaffrey, the Eadie family, William and Mabel Anderson, Elwin Vaughan, Herman Dawson, Reg Faulkner, Emery Smith, Delmer Green, Mabel Anderson and Isabel Crawford and her sister Mary Collins (talking about Christmas when they were children). Interviews in volume two include those with Bertha Desjardins, Lola Sample, Andrew Bak, Dr. Ken Hartin, Russell Dowdall, Lois Dowdall, Wayne Conley (about the Morton/Conley sawmill and other enterprises), Patricia McCoy, Percy Cathcart (by Linda Cathcart) and Vivian Cathcart. The interviews in volume one were conducted by members of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society and were transcribed by Cheryl McCoy and compiled for publication by Linda Preston. The interviews in volume two were done by Cheryl McCoy and Linda Preston, along with one by Grace Thompson with Bertha (Alexander) Desjardins, and were compiled for publication by Linda Preston.

Using books to learn John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Books and learning about structures. Makes sense, doesn’t it? You read a book which explains all about structures and related information. Simple. But, whoa! That’s not what happened at the “Radical Structures” youth workshop at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Thursday afternoon, March 14. Granted it took place in a library, the ideal place to find books. Indeed, workshop leader and instructor Deirdre Hartman aka Dr. DNA asked for books to be brought into the library meeting room where she had 14 youngsters aged 6 to 8 present, wanting to learn about construction and structural techniques. But the books were not brought into the room to be read; no, they were brought in to serve as props as Dr. DNA

gave the youngsters a single sheet of white paper and challenged them to make a paper bridge running between two piles of books. And not just any bridge but a bridge strong enough to hold four stones, each not quite Timbit size. “Is that impossible or what?” she asked rhetorically as the youngsters, working in teams of two and three, began the challenge. None were able to discover the key – sticking the paper between books provided some strength to the paper but it still sagged under the weight of the stones. Rolling up paper and placing it underneath the paper bridge helped add some strength but not enough as well. In the end, Dr. DNA demonstrated the secret – she folded up the paper, like a fan, creating a series of triangular ridges and valleys in the paper. See YOUTH, page 15

Youth learn value of the triangle Continued from page 14

on stilts above water, like housing found in some Third World countries. The key turned out to be taping a number of the spaghetti sticks together before using them as the stilts for the tin can aka hut. Individually the spaghetti sticks were too weak to hold up the can, no matter how many were used. Dr. DNA aka Deirdre Hartman, who lives in Stittsville and just last July came from Ireland, works for Radical Science, an organization which puts on such workshops and does programs in schools, all in an effort to help make science and its principles more understandable for youth. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Radical Structuresâ&#x20AC;? session at the Stittsville library was free for youngsters aged 6 to 12 to attend, although prior registration was required.

This gave the paper the strength to easily hold the four stones while being a bridge between two piles of the books. She reminded the youngsters about how triangles can make such a difference in the strength of paper. Indeed, she had begun the workshop by talking about structures and mainly about bridges, showing photos of different bridges and the shapes involved which add strength to the structure. She explained about arch-type bridges as well as suspension bridges like the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our bridges have to be very, very strong,â&#x20AC;? she told the youngsters, leading them in an exercise where acting in pairs, they teamed up and standing up, pushed against each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands stretched over their heads, replicating an arch-type bridge structure and its use of compression for strength. It was a structure that became even stronger when two others sat at the feet of the original two, creating a buttress that made the structure even stronger. A bridge like the Golden Gate bridge, known as a suspension bridge, uses the tension of cables for its strength.

Dr. DNA explained that the shape most used in constructing buildings is the triangle which she explained â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even demonstrated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is stronger than a simple square. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Egyptians had the right idea,â&#x20AC;? she said, referring to their triangleshaped pyramids. She told the youngsters that it is not only materials that make structures but also the shapes of these materials is a consideration as these shapes have much to do with the structureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength. The youngsters then broke up into three groups in which they experimented in creating building shapes. One group used plastic balls and rods to attempt to build an igloo-like structure using a combination of triangle and square shapes. Another group used small plastic building sticks to form squares and triangles and even a truss bridge here and there. And yet another group used toothpicks and small white marshmallows to create small structures featuring squares and triangles. And, afterwards, they and their workshop cohorts were given some marshmallows not for building but for eating if they wished. Dr. DNA wound up the workshop using a tin can and spaghetti sticks to try to replicate a hut that would stand

Fundraiser coming up for World Transplant Games athlete EMC sports - Samantha Eastop of Stittsville hopes to compete in the World Transplant Games in Durban, South Africa this year. This will be her third appearance at the World Transplant Games where she set the world record for her age category in 2009 with her ball throw of 42.88 metres. But for Samantha and a guardian to travel to this year’s World Transplant Games in South Africa, it is going to cost about $4,000 in transportation and registration costs. That’s why a fundraiser is being held this Sunday, March 24 at iPlay at the Sensplex in Kanata to help Samantha with some of these costs. At this fundraiser on Sunday, March 24, spots at iPlay will be sold for $10 an hour from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., with all of the proceeds going to Samantha. Those who want to arrange a playing time at this fundraiser should email helpsamgotodurban@ gmail.com Samantha had a heart transplant in Nov. 1996 when she was just 19 months old. This makes her eligible to compete in the World Transplant Games. Requirements for participation are that a person has to be

healthy, a member of the Canadian Transplant Association and a transplant recipient (heart, lungs, kidney, liver or bone mar-

row transplant). This year’s World Transplant Games in Durban, South Africa will be Samantha’s third such

games. Her first was in London, Ont. in 2005 while her second was in the Gold Coast in Australia in 2009 where she set her ball throw world record. Canada also has national Transplant Games every two years but in even numbered years, unlike the World Transplant Games which are held in old numbered years. Samantha first participated in the Canada Transplant Games in Windsor in 2008. She then participated in the Canada Transplant Games in Quebec City in 2010. Due to health issues, she was unable to attend the 2012 Canada Transplant Games in Calgary, Alta. Since receiving her heart transplant as a baby, Samantha has had most of her follow-up medical appointments at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. To date she has had over 50 procedures (32 biopsies, over 10 angiograms, and a couple of scares with cancer which turned out to be benign). She had more surgeries over the summer of 2012. Samantha, who has lived in Stittsville her entire life, is very competitive and loves playing softball. She enjoys meeting new people and keeps in contact with a lot of other transplant recipients that she has met through the years.

Bakers Bean - a village cafe Special to the News

When Jodie and Kent Baker decided to move back to Jodi’s hometown of Richmond, they brought with them the village café idea. They had opened their first coffee-based business way off in Australia where they had noticed a huge difference in the coffee scene there. “The coffee scene really changed in Australia about ten years ago,” says Kent Baker. “It went from bigger chain coffee shops to a lot of these smaller village cafes.” When Jodie and Kent returned to Canada, they noticed that the village café concept had not really been introduced here. “When we came back to Canada, there was a gap in the market,” Kent says. “They hadn’t really caught up with that yet.” So, upon settling in Richmond, they introduced the village café idea to the community in 2012, opening Bakers Bean on McBean Street. This village café offers a wide range of specialty teas and coffees as well as a range of homemade sandwiches, soups and pastries, with everything created and made fresh daily on the site. Local ingredients are used in these pastries and sandwiches while fair trade coffee is served. Gluten/dairy free food is also included on the menu. It is these unique offerings that large chain coffee shops do not offer, allowing Bakers Bean to set itself apart as a unique village café. “In Canada we love our brewed coffee and we want to take it a step beyond larger chain coffee shops,” Jodie Baker says in explaining the village café concept. And already Jodie and Kent, who have about 16 years SYDNEY STEELE experience in the restaurant business and could not imagJodie and Kent Baker of the Bakers Bean village café shop on McBean ine doing anything else, have opened a second location. It Street in Richmond are with their children, Grace, left, and Juno, who is was opened recently in Perth.

get to work had suggested the opening of this second location in Perth and Jodie and Kent Baker responded by opening their second café there. But they still are retaining their roots in the Richmond community. “They’re our people,” Kent says. “They are very supportive and give us lots of feedback.” He adds that word of mouth in Richmond has allowed Bakers Bean to be known by lots of people. And the support continues and has been seemed to grow since the opening of the new Tim Hortons at the Richmond Marketplace shopping area at the entrance to the village last December. “It seemed that more people came in and wanted to support our local business,” says Kent.

500 is goal in rain barrel sale John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rain barrel time again. Last spring, the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) sold over 400 rain barrels, generating over $4,000 to help fund SVA activities like the Canada Day celebrations, the Parade of Lights and Artists & Authors in the Park. This spring, the SVA has raised the bar and is aiming to sell at least 500 rain barrels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to 500 this year,â&#x20AC;? SVA director Tim LaPlante conďŹ dently predicted in explaining this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rain barrel sales initiative to the SVA executive at its meeting

on Thursday, March 14. The rain barrels are available now for purchase or reservation online at http://rainbarrel.ca/stittsville. Rain barrel orders can also be placed by calling Marilyn Jenkins at 613-836-5075 or Tanya Hein at 613-6861842, although the online ordering is preferable. The rain barrels this spring are selling for the same price as last year, namely $55 each. The SVA makes $10 for every barrel sold. The purchase includes the 220 litre/55 U.S. gallon barrel as well as a ďŹ lter basket, spigot, nipple, overďŹ&#x201A;ow adaptor and four feet of overďŹ&#x201A;ow hose. The rain barrels are made of recycled material as much as possible.

One change this year is in the colours available. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colours are grey, terra cotta and black. The rain barrels will be available for pickup in the parking lot at Stittsville Sobeys on Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ten thousand ďŹ&#x201A;yers promoting this rain barrel sale have been printed thanks to Mr. LaPlante who also owns the Stittsville Sobeys in Stittsville. These will be distributed through his store as well as elsewhere in the community. Stittsville Sobeys will also have a display of the rain barrels so that people can see what they are like. Mr. LaPlante has also included notice of the rain barrel sale as part of his advertizing in the Stittsville News EMC newspaper.

Casual Elegance Fine Gifts closing Special to the News

EMC news - A decade-old Stittsville business is closing. Casual Elegance Fine Gifts & Home DĂŠcor in the Shops of Main Street plaza on Stittsville Main Street at Carp Road has targeted Saturday, March 30 as its last day in business. Owner Chantelle Turcotte admits in an email to customers that the decision to close was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very emotional and difďŹ cult decision,â&#x20AC;? not only for herself but for her children, Hudson and Kennedy, who have literally

grown up at the store and who she says are upset about the closure as well. Ms. Turcotte pinpoints the inďŹ&#x201A;ux of big box stores into the area as making it more difďŹ cult for a small local business to compete in the market. She writes that from a business standpoint, the timing is right to close the business. But Casual Elegance Fine Gifts & Home DĂŠcor is going out with a bang that even these big box stores probably canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t equal. As of last Monday, March

18, Casual Elegance is offering 50 to 75 percent off all of its remaining merchandise. Saturday, March 30 is tentatively being earmarked as the last day in business. The storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ xtures, props and display units are all being sold off as well. Ms. Turcotte calls the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifetime as â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost ten wonderful years in business.â&#x20AC;? She notes that being in business for ten years if considered quite an accomplishment for a small family business.

While my job was primarily to help out with the camp, in terms of setting up in the morning and helping the kids through their activities, it was extremely interesting to spend some time looking at the many historical items, specifically the political items. Having studied History at Carleton University, I have a great interest in the subject but even more so when that history is local. The Goulbourn Museum has an incredible collection that tells the near 200 year history of Goulbourn Township. From the 1946 aerial photo of Richmond showing virtually no buildings other than on McBean Street to the picture of 1933-35 Wardens of Carleton County, you could easily lose yourself in the history. The Goulbourn Museum is a true asset to our community, not just for how they preserve our history but also how they promote it. Their youth programming also brings in kids from our communities and gets them involved in a variety of different ways. It was a fun day, as it always is around kids, and I’d like to thank my boss for the day, Tracey Donaldson, who is the Education & Community Programmer. Thanks also to Goulbourn Museum employees Kathryn Ward and Sue Woodford. For more information on the Goulbourn Museum and their incredible youth programming, you can visit www.goulbournmuseum.ca or find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GoulbournMuseum.

Consider 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron Special to the News

EMC news - Youth from Stittsville are eligible to join the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron. Based at the Connaught Rifle Range in Kanata, this Squadron attracts Cadets not only from Stittsville but also from Kanata, West Carleton, Almonte and Bells Corners. Cadets, ranging in age from 12 to 19, can be found in communities all around the Ottawa area. The 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron is one of these Cadet groups. The aim of the Cadet movement is to promote physical fitness, citizenship and leadership. Air Cadets, more specifically, are for those interested in the air component of the Canadian Forces. The main attraction of the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron is that Cadets have the opportunity to learn to fly, including the chance to fly in a glider as well as in a fourseat light aircraft. A “Ground School” program is offered which teaches the basics of how an aircraft operates. Last year, a Cadet from 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron earned her glider pilot’s license after spending six weeks at St. Jean, Quebec learning how to fly a glider.

In addition, three Cadets from the Squadron earned their private pilot’s license, spending seven weeks learning to fly a Cessna. Opportunities for summer training programs for Cadets are numerous. Forty Cadets from the Squadron attended summer courses last year in place like Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. These summer courses cover topics such as how to run an airport, how to survive in the wilderness, how to organize sports competitions and how to be a good leader. The Cadet program provides opportunities for developing friendships while also learning new skills. There is no cost to the Cadet program and uniforms are provided. Cadets in the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron have been active in the community. Cadets have sold poppies during Legion poppy drives, have participated in Remembrance Day parades and have supported the Kanata Food Bank. The Stittsville branch 618 of the Royal Canadian Legion has provided some financial support to the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron. Last September ten Cadets from the Squadron, along with some parents and

On March 14th, I had the pleasure of spending the day at the Goulbourn Museum for a March Break edition of Councillor for Hire. If your kids are off from school, there is a good chance that the Goulbourn Museum offers a camp for them and March Break is no different. This year, they offered Camp Curator where kids had the opportunity to be a curator for a week. At this weeklong camp, the kids in attendance learned how to create exhibits and handle artefacts. On the day I was there, the kids took part in an archaeological dig.

90th birthday for Tony Van Doormaal in milestone year John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - It’s a year of milestones for Tony Van Doormaal of Fernbank Road. It’s now one down and one still to go. On Wednesday, March 13, Tony, who has lived on the Fernbank Road since 1956, celebrated his 90th birthday. And on Sunday, April 7, Tony and his wife Lina, who is 86 years old, will be marking their 60th wedding anniversary, although the major celebration of this milestone will not take place until early June when a number are travelling here from the Van Doormaal’s native Netherlands to participate in a gala anniversary celebration. It was back on April 7, 1953 in Diessen, their village community in the Netherlands, when Tony and Lina got married. A week later, they were on a boat to Canada where, after ten days at sea, they arrived in Halifax, with no money and no English language but with

a dream. Both growing up on farms, they wanted to have their own farm in Canada. After a two day train trip from Halifax, they arrived in Ottawa on their way to a farm on the River Road at Manotick where a dairy farmer was sponsoring their immigration. Tony became the herdsman on the farm. At home in the Netherlands, he had milked cows but only by hand. Here on this Canadian farm, it was machine milking but Tony quickly caught on to the procedure. It was a challenging life, with their lack of English and money (it was two years before they had a car), but, as Lina says, “We knew how to work.” “We really were settlers,” she adds but they got to know eight other couples from the Netherlands who were also working on farms in that area and who met and got together after mass each Sunday at St. Brigid’s Church at Kelly’s Landing on the River Road just south of Manotick.

An open house will be held on Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Stittsville Co-operative Nursery School at 27 Hobin Street (at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School) in Stittsville. Meet

Tony Van Doormaal While Tony worked on the farm, Lina eventually began cleaning homes, something that she continued to do for 15 years, even after Tony and Lina purchased the Fernbank Road farm of John and Mary Davidson in 1956. They had had an earlier

opportunity to acquire a farm at Twin Elm but the deal had fallen through. But then they were able to purchase the Davidson farm on the Fernbank Road which now sits virtually right across from the new Walmart shopping area. It had been for sale for five years. Mr. and Mrs. Davidson had farmed there for 32 years before selling to Tony and Lina Van Doormaal and in fact they lived together there with the Van Doormaals for several months while the Davidsons were having a new brick bungalow built on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. When Tony and Lina moved onto this farm on the Fernbank Road, there were working farms all along the road right through to Stittsville. Now there are no active farms on this stretch of Fernbank Road. Tony himself began milking the farm’s herd and gradually increased production and herd size, eventually shipping milk off the farm. He would eventually milk a herd of up to 40 cows while Lina continued

with her house cleaning work, including in the new nearby community of Glen Cairn. And, of course, they were raising their family of four boys and a girl – Jeffrey, Peter, Brian, Glenn and Diane. Indeed, it had been their idea in coming to Canada that they would be able to acquire a farm so that their children could continue in that family farm tradition. But, as things turned out, none of the boys opted for farming, instead entering other professions in which they have flourished. Their parents are very proud of all of their children and what they have accomplished, even though none chose farming. When he turned 75 years old, Tony got out of dairy farming. He did some beef farming and then turned to cash cropping before retiring. Eight years ago, Tony and Lina lost their Fernbank Road home to a fire. But they rebuilt on the same site. Tony and Lina remain active. Both still drive and ev-

ery Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7 a.m. will find them at the Kanata Wave Pool where they swim for an hour and a half. Indeed, they have been going there ever since it opened 25 years ago. And they are optimistic that this routine will continue. On his birthday, Tony signed up and paid for another year of Wave Pool activity – so you know he plans to continue. They are also regular attendees at weekday morning mass at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Kanata. Tony is also an avid gardener, with an extensive garden complete with potatoes that he tends in the backyard. It all conforms to what Lina Van Doormaal says is the secret of life: Stay fit and work hard. That’s what Tony and Lina Van Doormaal have done in their nearly six decades on the Fernbank Road. And now its full speed ahead to their planned 60th wedding anniversary celebration on Saturday, June 8.

Camp Curator program at Goulbourn Museum John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - They wore white lab coats with name badges. They used kits which contained museum curator tools like a magnifying glass a la Sherlock Holmes, a tape measure, a wisk brush and a breathing mask. And during their week-long, half day camp at the Goulbourn Museum during March Break, they each undertook an archeological dig, prepared a shelf display in an exhibit cabinet and prepared a poster-based exhibit that now adorns wall space at the Museum. Yes, it was quite a week for four youngsters who assumed the roles of junior curators at the Camp Curator program at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners last week. And the four – Isabella Mockett, 7, Jayden Easy, 7, Keira Fortier, 9, and Alyssa Mockett, 10 – even got to meet and spend time with city of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt who was at the Camp Curator program for a day as part of his ongoing “Councillor For Hire” program where he spends a day at various

businesses and other organizations in his ward, going through the daily routine. “These girls were the best junior curators I’ve ever seen in my life,” Goulbourn Museum education and community programmer Tracey Donaldson said during the wind-up unveiling of the exhibits and displays prepared by the junior curators at the Museum last Friday afternoon, attended by the youngsters’ parents. This wind-up event also featured an ongoing video slide show of photos showing the girls in action throughout the week – learning how to label and accession artefacts, how to photograph and document artefacts, how to create an exhibit and more. At this wind-up event, Ms. Donaldson presented each of the junior curators with a “graduation” certificate as well as a CD featuring the photographs taken during the week. At the wind-up event, the visiting parents got to enjoy coffee and donuts served to them by their children. Each of the junior curators was able to take home at the end of the camp her personal curator kit.

Historic season ends Special to the News

EMC sports - Samantha Bureau of Stittsville and her teammates on the Franklin Pierce University Ravens women’s hockey team have wrapped up their historic first season. The team finished with a record of seven wins and 14 losses in 21 games in its inaugural season. Women’s hockey became one of the varsity sports offered at Franklin Pierce in the 20122013 season.

Slow start but winning finish Sandra Thomson

Special to the News

EMC sports - The Blessed Sacrament Invitational Basketball Tournament in Hamilton sure didn’t start out too well for the Goulbourn Hornets Major Atom Boys team but it sure ended on a high. And now, coming off their gold medal performance in Hamilton, the Hornets are all set to pursue the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association (EOBA) championship. It was on the weekend of March 2 that the Goulbourn Hornets Major Atom Boys team travelled to Hamilton for the Blessed Sacrament Invitational Tournament. But losses in their first two games made for a pretty bleak picture – until the Hornets got winning, emerging with the gold medals in Division 3B play. The Hornets started off the tournament playing the North Region Crazy Cats. Trailing for most of the game, the Hornets kept plugging away and had their chances to win the game in JOHN MACMILLAN the dying seconds but the ball just did not roll Members of the Goulbourn Hornets Major Atom Boys team, Division 3B gold medal their way. The result was a 47-46 loss. winners at the recent Blessed Sacrament Invitational Basketball Tournament in Hamilton, It was then on to play the Blessed Sacrament are, front row, from left, Lexx Thomson, Noah Glogauer and Connor MacMillan; second No. 2 team but this also resulted in a loss – 54-

39. But then things switched around. The Hornets beat the Sarnia Valhalla Vikings 54-48 thanks to a great team effort led by David Nowlan’s 12 points and Aidan MacMillan’s ten points. On the Sunday, the Hornets faced the Mississauga Monarchs No. 2 team in division 3B semi-final playoff action. The Hornets were hot for this game, hitting 47 percent of their field goals while chalking up a 61-52 victory over this Mississauga team. David Nowlan and Noah Glogauer both netted 12 points for the Hornets in this game. This victory took the Hornets to the gold medal Division 3B championship game against the Tecumseh Saints. Right from the opening jump ball, the Hornets dominated with great back door passing, drives to the net, steals (16 during the game) and rebounds (42 in total). David Nowlan scored 15 points while Aidan MacMillan added 13 points. Ben Shoveller was awesome, grabbing 18 rebounds himself. No wonder the Goulbourn Hornets came home as the gold medal winners in Division 3B of the tournament. Now, it’s on to EOBA championship play for this Goulbourn Hornets team.

Green at St. Paul’s United Church John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Green was the colour of the day at St. Paul’s United Church last Saturday evening, March 16. The church’s basement hall, site of its annual Irish Stew Dinner and Auction, was a sea

of green – green shamrocks on the tables, green tablecloths, green table centerpieces, green hats of various sizes, green ties including one worn by auctioneer Jim Wagdin, green t-shirts and even green flashing shamrock earrings. But added to this visual green were, with apologies to our American neighbours, the “greenbacks” being spent on the more than 25

items up for grabs in the hour-long auction presided over by Jim Wagdin following the Irish Stew Dinner. Successful bids ranged from $20 right through to $180 for items ranging from a custom made baby’s quilt to a certificate for a pie a month from the St. Paul’s Pie Makers to a spring housecleaning to cans of maple syrup to rounds of golf to Ottawa Senators tickets to residential duct cleaning to income tax preparation to a necklace with matching earrings to a shopping trip to Watertown to transportation

to the Ottawa airport to gift baskets to a set of placemats to a hand-made afghan. Yes, this auction encouraged a spending of the “green” that would have made St. Patrick himself happy. And really, what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (March 17, the very next day) than enjoying an Irish meal in a green festooned environment while also sharing a little “green” in the auction to help raise funds for the church.

Spiderman on hand for ribbon cutting John Curry john.brummell@metroland.com

EMC news - With Spiderman holding one end of the red ribbon and a bear holding the other, albeit with human help, five year old Amelia Mohr cut the ribbon to mark the grand opening of “The Pottery Playhouse” at the Stittsville Shopping Centre in Stittsville last Saturday, March 16. She was accompanied in this ribbon cutting by her youngster sister Larissa and friends Em-

mie and Paige Hollinger, along with members of the Rothenberg family – Debrah, Scott, Alexandra and Austin – which operates the newly opening business and also city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. But this ribbon cutting was not the only celebratory marking of the opening of this new business which offers families, children and adults a place to go and have fun custom decorating and painting pottery of their choice. There also was an official cake cutting of a giant cake with yellow frosting, emblazoned with

the name “The Pottery Playhouse.” Councillor Qadri did the honours with the first cut of the cake, accompanied by owners Debrah and Scott Rothenberg. This, though, was not all for councillor Qadri. He also, as it were, “lent a hand” to these grand opening happenings at “The Pottery Playhouse,” providing his hand imprint on a ceramic cup which he then signed after Ms. Rothenberg did some artistic improvements, making the hand print into the image of a fish. “The Pottery Playhouse” is not a pottery supplies shop or a shop geared to the serious potter. Rather, it is where youngsters can go for birthday parties, where children can decorate ceramic pieces which will be glazed and kiln fired for later pickup or where adults can celebrate baby showers, anniversaries and other party happenings by making ceramic creations, choosing from a wide selection of ceramic pieces to decorate such as mugs, dinner plates, bowls and other seasonal and traditional pieces. But you don’t have to be a group and make a reservation for an event at “The Pottery Playhouse.” You can drop in at any time that the shop is open and enjoy some fun and creative making of pottery. There will always be a staff members on hand to help out.

“The Pottery Playhouse” has a wide selection of greenware for people to use thanks to the on-premises kiln in which Ms. Rothenberg can fire pieces made from moulds that are kept on site. Making the pieces on site from moulds also allows for a more affordable cost for customers. While the shop has no pottery wheel, there is a section of the shop where clay can be hand crafted. “The Pottery Playhouse” can also arrange for off-remises activities with the ceramics painted elsewhere and then brought back to the shop for firing in the kiln and subsequent pickup. While it is traditional for pottery operations to charge a studio fee for time involved in use of the kiln, “The Pottery Playhouse” is setting its studio fee as a donation to the Stittsville Food Bank, either a food item or a monetary contribution. “The Pottery Playhouse” is located at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. It is open seven days a week including Sundays from 12 noon to 5 p.m. For more information about “The Pottery Playhouse,” or to make a reservation at the shop, phone 613-831-0088. The shop’s website can be found at www.potteryplayhouse.ca.

A public registration night for the Stittsville Co-operative Nursery School for the 2013-2014 school year will be held on Thursday, April 25 at 7 p.m. at the Nursery School’s premises at 27 Hobin Street (at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School) in Stittsville. For more information, please visit

www.scns.ca. The Richmond Cooperative Nursery School is hosting a Mom-2-Mom Sale on Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds in Richmond. Gently used children’s toys, clothing and other items will be for sale. R0011978739

Rotary Club members hear about Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Bowl john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The 19th annual Max Keeping Foundation bowlathon has a companion event this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the inaugural ďŹ rst annual Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Bowl. Max Keeping Foundation executive director Jo-Anne Robillard told members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville about this new event, about the 19 year old bowlathon and about the Max Keeping Foundation in general at the Rotary Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting on Tuesday, March 12. The Max Keeping Foundation assists ďŹ nancially disadvantaged children and families to meet their emotional, physical and emergency needs. It all started 19 years ago when a group of people including Max Keeping wanted to help underprivileged children and staged a pool tournament to help raise funds to help a handful of low income children play sports. The pool tournament was turned into a bowlathon and it has remained the Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main fundraising tool over the years, raising about $80,000 annually. Over the years the Max Keeping Foundation has raised over one and a half million dollars to try to make a difference in the lives of children whose needs for assistance do not meet the criteria for support from other charities operating in the area.

Last year, for instance, the Max Keeping Foundation funded about 500 children so they could attend summer camp or play hockey or other sports or swim or dance or obtain scholarships for post-secondary education. Ms. Robillard said that the Max Keeping Foundation works closely with other agencies and organizations like the United Way and the Boys and Girls Club to identify these children in need. Applications for funding are made on an annual basis and the Max Keeping Foundation pays the organization providing the program or service â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the money does not go to the recipient family directly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many children fall through the cracks,â&#x20AC;? Ms. Robillard said about the situation of needy children today. She said that the Max Keeping Foundation really provides a last chance for assistance for these needy children. This year, in addition to the 19th annual bowlathon which happens on Sunday, April 7 at the Merivale Bowling Centre on Merivale Road, the Foundation is launching the ďŹ rst annual Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Bowl, a rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n roll themed event in honour of Max Keeping. It will take place on Saturday evening, April 6, also at the Merivale Bowling Centre. It is being promoted as an evening of fun going down memory lane with tunes from the 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, with two

rounds of bowling also included. After bowling, participants will dance the night away to a live rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n roll band in the Merivale Bowling Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lounge, while also enjoying some great food and an auction. The Max Keeping Foundation now has a branch in Cornwall where local interest and involvement has seen about $100,000 raised within the past year, with 90 children helped. The Foundation is interested in ex-

panding to other communities within the CTV Ottawa viewing area but it all depends if there is local interest and local residents willing to take on the work. The Max Keeping Foundation spends only three percent of its funds on administration costs as everyone involved in a volunteer except for the executive director Jo-Anne Robillard who is a part-time staff person. She readily admits that the organization

is very frugal in its spending on administration costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend where we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to on ďŹ&#x201A;uff,â&#x20AC;? she told the Rotary Club members. Registration for both this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowlathon and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Bowl is now open on the Max Keeping Foundation website at www.maxkeepingfoundation.org. This year there is an online system that allows a person to register, create a team, join a team, produce personalized emails for donor solicitations and also thank you notes. The system also automatically generates tax receipts for amounts over $25. Max Keeping, who is chair of the Max Keeping Foundation, is the retired news anchor at CTV Ottawa. He retired after 37 years as the anchor but remains active in the community, although he is currently recovering from major cancer surgery. He is currently CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ambassador to the Community. He also represents CHEO in the community, is chair of the Ottawa Senators Foundation and was campaign chair of United Way Ottawa in 2011. He also is involved with more than a dozen other charity organizations in the Ottawa area. He holds several honourary university degrees and has received many awards and citations for his charitable and community building work in the community.

Ottawa South S h United i d SSoccer C Club celebrates 10th anniversary Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take more than 15 years,â&#x20AC;? recalls OSU Founding President Bill Michalopulos, who remains President of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now the only Ottawa based club to: earn a top position in the provincial soccer club Terra rankings, a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association and win a couple of gold medals in North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prestigious showcase tournament; the Disney showcase, while helping to place scores of soccer players in universities and colleges on soccer scholarships in North America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By any tangible measurement, I think, thanks to our volunteers and full time operating staff, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve exceeded our vision in record time,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos adds. OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary, including establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Dallas Texans and Everton FC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and providing a dedicated and qualified staff approach to running a club in order to provide better programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still depend on our volunteers who are a key link to our community, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew that a completely volunteer-based club was not a sustainable model if one really wanted to improve the delivery of soccer and be efficient,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos emphasizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we had to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;professionalizeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; some aspects of the club while retaining the right type of genuinely soccer-loving and experienced volunteer Board of Directors in order to maximize resource efficiency, maintain value for money and to make sure that our soccer playing youth could be the best they could be.



â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to put together a sustainable environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and significantly improved the level of play of our youth. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our biggest accomplishment.â&#x20AC;?

A major project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which now stands as a physical symbol of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing membership base thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now reached 6,500 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from youth recreational/developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to adult & sr. levels. Within two years, a home clubhouse will be built at George Nelms Sports Park, a further signal of the bright future that lies ahead for OSU. Also playing a key role in ongoing success will be UEFA â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Licence Coach Paul Harris â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a recent groundbreaking addition as OSU Club Head Coach via Evertonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed youth academy. Moving top players onto the next level is an OSU trademark, with over 80 players receiving scholarships to play university and college soccer in Canada and the U.S., and others recruited into pro team academies.

Without discounting the tremendous success OSU has achieved in becoming a force locally, provincially and throughout North America, perhaps the biggest source of pride is seeing the deeper impact the club has made on membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives over 10 years.

Stittsville skyline changes John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stittsville’s skyline changed last week. No, it wasn’t a new building going up or an old build-

ing coming down. Rather, it was a giant tree having its highest branches cut. And these branches were among the highest in the community, soaring up into the sky over the Stittsville Glass & Signs building on Stittsville Main Street beside Village Square Park. Indeed, the giant tree, even now when stripped of its high altitude branches, looms up into the sky beside the building, easily seen by motorists passing southbound through the Stittsville Main Street/Abbott Street intersection. The tree, like another similar giant tree a little closer to Stittsville Main Street at this location which was severely cut back last year to building height, will be cut back further as well when Dan’s Tree Service, which did the tree cutting work last week, returns to the scene. The job could not be totally completed last week due to an equipment malfunction. Dan’s Tree Service had used its bucket truck to deliver a worker to the upper reaches of the giant tree where he removed the branches. Luc and Nancy Therrien of Stittsville Glass & Signs had become worried that the branches from the giant tree

would come down right on their building during a windstorm. That’s why they engaged Dan’s Tree Service to cut back the tree. This is similar to what was done last year when another giant tree closer to the front of the building had all of its branches removed, leaving only a two-storey tall stump. The same will happen to this second giant tree when Dan’s Tree Service returns to the site. Nancy Therrien of Stittsville Glass & Signs admitted that she and Luc had not really even noticed these giant trees when they purchased the property as the home for Stittsville Glass & Signs even though the trees at that time soared into the sky above the building. However, over the years, she and Luc have grown concerned about the trees and the possible damage which falling branches could cause to their building, so the trees’ upper branches over the building have had to be removed. The two giant trees, which are six feet wide at their base, stand in a small sliver of property on the south side of the Stittsville Glass & Signs building, between it and the adjacent property.

A sweet little boy born end of 2011... He is a HUGGER... loves to hug and loves to be hugged....a cuddle bunny. Other cats are his friends and he gets along with them famously....a true team player. A lovely gentle cat which would fit in easily. His contrast color fur makes him look crisp and noticeable among others. He is medium sized neutered and just waiting your call to go home with you. For adopting this or any other cat contact GWEN at 613-258-2622. Check out the Website www.countrycatrescue.com for available cats and more info.

Free advice about fraud Special to the News

EMC news - Financial fraud in Canada is extensive – and we’re not scamming you on that. In 2012, for instance, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre received almost 39,000 complaints about mass marketing fraud which cost Canadians over $53 million. In addition, 17,000 cases of identity fraud or identity theft cost victims more than $16 million. That’s why there is now a Fraud Prevention Month which happens to be this month, March. It is meant to highlight financial fraud and help Canadians recognize this crime and report fraud scams. The new RBC Royal Bank Fernbank branch at the Walmart shopping area at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive is holding a free advice event dealing with financial fraud this coming Saturday, March 23 at 12 noon. A guest speaker from the Ottawa Police Service will explain how you can protect yourself from financial fraud. While this advice event is free, those planning to attend are asked to indicate this intention at the front desk at the branch or by calling the branch at 613-271-4080 or email elena.pak@rbc.com or stewart.leckie@rbc.com. Some tips to project yourself from becoming a victim of fraud include don’t share personal information

freely; destroy documents with personal information; keep your wallet or purse safe; don’t carry identification that you don’t need on a daily basis like your Social Insurance Number; lock your household mailbox if possible; check your credit report once a year (it can be ordered for free): make sure websites are secure before transmitting personal information; delete emails that ask for personal information; keep computer firewalls and spyware filters up to date; keep your computer passwords safe; be skeptical of offers (if a offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is); and save paper bank records for at least year. If you have become a victim of financial fraud and have ben scammed, report it as keeping it a secret, while less embarrassing perhaps, only makes it easier for scammers to defraud others. This can be done by filing a report with the police, advising all financial institutions and other companies where you have accounts such as your phone or cable provider about the fraud, contacting Canada’s two credit reporting agencies and asking them to put a fraud alert on your file, contacting the Canadian AntiFraud Centre’s national call centre at 1-888-495-8501 or by email at info@antifraudcentre.ca , and writing down the steps you take as you report the fraud.

EMC sports - It was just three points that kept the Goulbourn Hornets Major Bantam Girls team from having a perfect record at the recent Mike O’Connor Memorial Basketball Tournament in Gloucester and bringing home the gold medals. Competing in the AA/AAA division of the tournament, the Hornets participated in an intensive championship final against the rival and also-undefeated Nepean Blue Devils. It was a defensive battle with several lead changes with Nepean eventually emerging with a close 30-27 victory, taking the gold medals with the Hornets bringing home the silver medals. The Goulbourn Hornets had advanced to this championship final against the Nepean

EMC sports - The final weeks of the 20122013 season are going to be exciting ones for the players of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association (GGHA). The GGHA is holding a fun day for all GGHA players on Saturday, March 30 at the new rink at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. And then, to add to this, the GGHA will be holding its first ever banquet on Saturday, April 13. Talk about ending the season with a bang!

A double bang, in fact! The GGHA was formed two years ago to provide a community-based local girls hockey program for players from Goulbourn (Stittsville, Richmond, Munster and Ashton). Up until then, girls from Goulbourn had to register and play with the Kanata Girls Hockey Association. For the 2012-2013 season, the GGHA, which calls its teams the Rockets, had teams at both the novice and atom level. The GGHA also offered an initiation level program.

Questions to ask camp director before you register your child Matt Barr Camps Canada

EMC lifestyle - Here is a list of questions to ask any camp director before you register. Pick and choose the ones that are relevant to you and your child. * Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? * What are your hours of operation and for pre- and post-camp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours? * What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A ratio of 10:1 is probably the most you would want. * Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? * What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities air-conditioned? * Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a

Ask yourself questions EMC lifestyle - Are you in the middle of planning your children’s stay at a summer camp? Before making your choice, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions. Summer camps, day camps, nature classes and specialized camps are just some of the options open to you and your children. All you have to do is find a camp that will answer their needs and suit your budget. The length of stay, the quality of the infrastructure and the food, safety, programs offered, the training that the staff receives and the costs of registering will influence your choice.

If your children want to spend one or more weeks in different surroundings, a summer camp would be ideal. Outdoor activities, hiking trips, excursions, cultural outings and meeting new friends will give them a complete change of scene. Nights spent in a dormitory or in a tent will be another unique experience. Perhaps your children prefer to have fun with friends during the day and come home in the evening. If so, a summer spent at a day camp would be just the thing. They can join in organized games, go on supervised visits to tourist attractions and spend

afternoons at the pool. The duration of this type of camp can range from one to several weeks. A specialized camp would give your children the opportunity of perfecting their knowledge in a subject which interests them. Sports, culture and the sciences are among the most popular ones. For a shorter stay, nature classes offer outdoor programs which are both recreational and educational. Activities are usually spread over a period of one or two days and include nature studies, climbing, water sports and wilderness survival skills.

Participating in sports day camps Metro Creative Graphics

EMC lifestyle - Parents who are looking for a specialized camp for their sports-mad children this summer have lots of choice. More and more businesses and summer camp managers have developed expertise in order to offer programs specifically adapted to the expectations of young athletes. By participating in a sports day camp, a child can acquire techniques and knowledge which will be very profitable when the time comes to return to regular activities with the hockey, basketball or volleyball team next fall. Hockey is still one of the most popular sports during the summer. One or two weeks at a specialized summer school will allow young hockey players to develop their abilities and improve their play thanks to the advice and supervision of a qualified team of instructors. Apart from

training sessions on the ice, the program usually includes off-ice exercises, video sessions and other recreational activities. Over the years, soccer has gained so much in popularity across the country that many camps now specialize in this sport for its young fans; a great way for players to develop their talents and improve their technique. As well as being able to practise their favourite sport during the summer, fans of golf, tennis, baseball and athletics can also improve their skills at specialized camps. The programming at these camps can vary as to content and often include extracurricular activities. In short, there is no lack of choice for young people interested in a particular sport and who wish to develop their potential while experiencing a wonderful group adventure.

EMC lifestyle - Even though we’re just at the beginning, the very beginning, of spring, it’s already time to think about the children’s long summer holidays. Among the myriad possibilities available, day camps organized by municipalities or private organizations are very popular choices. As soon as the school year finishes, the children can get together for a program packed with activities. Lasting from five days to six or seven weeks, the day camp allows participants to enjoy the outdoors while getting involved in supervised activities. If you decide on a camp lasting several weeks, you can pay for as many weeks as you

choose depending on your own vacation. In municipalities, the program often follows a specific theme which evolves over the summer. The children meet every day in the school yard or in a park where they participate in many different games. Indoor activities are organized during periods of rain. Camp programs often include time for swimming in outdoor pools or lakes as well as trips to tourist attractions and other interesting sites. Normally, children still at primary school are grouped according to their age. Traditionally, the day camp adventure finishes with a big party to remember the highlights of the summer and for everyone to say their goodbyes.

Summer camp offers a great experience for youngsters who do activities with others, developing friendships.

Summer camp choices camp simply because it’s one where they still have some places left. It is essential to take into account the interests of your children in order for them to have an enjoyable and enriching experience. There are conventional camps, which offer a wide range of outdoor activities and group games. Other camps offer special interest activities, such as specific sports, visual arts, music, cooking, or even the sciences, including astronomy. The length of stay can also vary. Some parents prefer to stick with day camps or short stays so their children won’t get home-

sick. Others opt to send their children for a week or more to develop their independence. Children living with a physical or mental disability can also benefit greatly from a stay at a summer camp. Some camps are specifically adapted to meet such needs and have qualified personnel trained to care for them 24 hours a day. Whatever type of camp a family is looking for, it is always advisable to visit it first or speak with camp staff on the phone – this will help you be sure their priority is the well-being of the children and their focus suits the needs and interests of your children.

Camp experience has positive impact on youth Camps Canada

EMC lifestyle - People who have attended or worked at a camp know that it is a very special place. Powerful and positive things happen in the camp environment that don’t happen anyplace else. The camp community and culture produce changes in people that are unique and long-lasting. It would be hard to make a complete list of all of the factors that make camp different. Here are five examples: 1 - Camp leads the way in using the best methods to help children learn and

grow. Camp is a lot more than “something fun for the kids to do when they are out of school.” Actually, camps are outstanding places for children to learn and grow. Why? For over 125 years, camps have been the leader in using the number one key secret to teaching: children learn most from doing. They learn most from hands-on discovery and practice, especially in small groups. The fancy name for this is experiential learning. When children are actively involved in high-participation activities, they not only learn much more, but their levels of atten-

tion, enjoyment, and motivation really blast off. In fact, camp is such a terrific community for learning that schools are now following the lead of camps as they look for ways to reach students. Parents have surely noticed that their children are spending much more time in school now working with “manipulatives” (hands-on materials to learn concepts) and “realworld” situations. Kids do stuff like that at camp every five minutes. 2 - Camp communities remove the typical pressures from school, and support children in a positive atmosphere that cherishes effort

Fantastic!

and persistence. One fast way to explain the incredible power of camping is in two words: no grades. It is amazing how children blossom when the burdens of constant evaluation and a permanent record are taken off their backs. Achievement is rewarded at camp just like it is at school. But what makes camp a special community is its focus on celebrating effort. It provides recognition when children try their best even if they don’t succeed right away. In this low-pressure atmosphere, children learn more readily what positive things to say and do when they make mistakes or face challenges. At camp, children learn to be persistent and positive. These values build stronger children. 3 - Camp has distinctive value in preparing children for future success. How do we prepare children for life in a modern world? Key current buzzwords in the workplace are teamwork and greater responsibility for independent problem-solving. There are higher expectations for employees to get along with others and to think for themselves. Again, camp has been leading the way by creating communities where kids make daily decisions about activities. They are put into situations every hour where how they act and meet their responsibilities will affect everyone else in their groups. It’s important to teach our children to get along with others, especially in an increasingly diverse world. Camps

make a unique contribution here. Camps are communities where children are put into groups with many children that they may not know. This is often not true at school, for example, where children may move from grade to grade with many children from prior classes who may live on the very same block or not much farther. Campers may have a special friend or two in their group, but at most camps the group assignments encourage building new relationships and provide lots of practice in cooperation and compromise. 4 - Camp offers an unequalled variety of opportunities to develop well-rounded children. Camps cut like a laser through the negative expectations and beliefs that can stick to children and hold them back. Each year of a child’s life, he or she finds new things they can accomplish. It’s a tragedy that children often decide what they are good at and not good at when they very young. These early, limiting self-assessments may last through adulthood. When children get more recognition for abilities in, for example, math and athletics than they get for reading and music, then their choice of future activities and how they spend their time will naturally tend to gravitate toward areas in which they have had the greatest success in the past. Like most parents, I want my children to be well-rounded. One of the big reasons my wife and I have sent our children to camps is because they encourage dabbling. Children can participate in, learn about,

and enjoy a wide variety of activities without any need to be an expert in all of them. Camps offer a fantastic variety of different opportunities throughout every day. I cannot identify any other institution that comes even close to the range of recreational, dramatic, musical, artistic, environmental, and other interest areas that are offered to boys and girls at camp. 5 - Camp combats youth isolation by offering positive and accepting communities. Camp is about belonging; belonging to a group that respects and values each member. The traditions and customs of each different camp are like a secret code that allows those who know it to feel embraced by something unique and very special. Adult camp alumni often return many years later to camp still thrilled by the inside knowledge of camp legends and rituals that continue to inspire loyalty and a sense of connection. Camp is, at its core, about learning how to make positive connections. The directors and staff of camps work hard to create a community that is enormously positive and accepting. Campers are urged to include, not exclude, others. They are praised for choosing new partners and not always the same ones. They are encouraged to respect the differences between people. In an increasingly sarcastic world, camps aim to be an oasis of personal safety where demeaning comments and disrespectful behaviour are not tolerated and children are taught responsible and positive ways to resolve conflicts. * excerpts extracted from Michael Brandwein/ mbrandwein@aol.com


Camp Guide 2013

Start thinking about summer learning plans www.newscanada.com

EMC lifestyle - While it may seem like spring has just about sprung, summer will be here before you know it. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, that means

that it’s time to start thinking about summer learning plans. “Summer learning is a critical – and often overlooked – part of students’ learning. By planning for summer learning now, parents will

help their children avoid the summer learning brain drain,” says Nick Whitehead, founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. He offers these five reasons why planning for summer learning this spring is so important: 1. Summer is going to be here soon. Spring may have just begun, but before long, students will be studying for exams and handing in their final term projects, which means that it’s not too early to think about what kids are going to be doing this summer. 2. Summer can undo what children are learning right now. Without maintaining learning momentum and study skills over the summer break, students easily forget everything they’re working hard to learn right now, which means that next year, students need to repeat the same workbooks and materials they are learning right now.

3. Summer can have an impact on how children learn next year. After a summer off, it can take kids up to three months to get back into the swing of learning. That represents a huge amount of wasted learning opportunities, and it means that students are not up to their potential from as early as the first day back to class. 4. Kids want to learn in the summer. Research in summer learning studies shows that 56 per cent of students want to be involved in a summer program that helps them keep up with summer schoolwork or prepare for the next grade. 5. Summer programs fill up fast. Most programs are already accepting applications and taking reservations for summer enrolment. Schools, camps, and supplemental tutoring facilities such as Oxford Learning are no exception.

Specialized summer camps EMC lifestyle - Does your child love the visual arts or maybe expeditions into the wilderness? Is he or she a sports fanatic? Specialized summer camps will give him or her the chance to discover a whole new world, broaden his knowledge and develop his or her talents. Specialized camps offer activities for all ages and for all tastes throughout the summer. For a week or more, depending on the organization, young people can participate in exciting programs involving them in enriching activities within a stimulating and friendly environment. Whether it involves excursions into the wilderness, an immersion course in a foreign language, a science or music camp, team sports or outdoor activities, there’s something to suit everyone. Along with these specialized activities, summer camps also offer events that involve Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

all the campers, outings and cultural visits. The staff also plans alternative activities just in case Mother Nature doesn’t co-operate. Staffed by professionals and students, specialized camps can also offer young people the opportunity to develop abilities in areas in which they could one day build a career. As well as having a lot of fun and meeting other children who have the same interests, these young people acquire a broader knowledge and understanding of many different subjects. Their camp experience is something they will never forget. Indeed, a specialized summer camp offers an unforgettable experience. Reservations have to be made early in the year as these specialized summer camps are very popular and the number of places often limited. So now is the time to make your choice.

All Students Need Summer Learning

Dancing is a great activity at any time of the year but a summer dance camp is not only fun but also can help develop dancing skills.

The research is clear: kids who take a complete break from learning in the summer fall behind. They fall behind in math. They fall behind in reading. They lose school motivation.

Visual arts, theatre, performing arts camps offer education and lots of fun

Summer learning loss is preventable with Oxford Learning. We have programs for students of all ages and grades:

EMC lifestyle - Specialized summer camps are now allowing young artists to develop their passion on an intensive basis. Summer art camps offer classes which are both educational and lots of fun. Children can develop their skills and broaden their interests while being supervised by competent instructors, all in an entertaining atmosphere. There are many different facets to the world of visual arts. At summer camp, young people can learn about kinds of media that they have fewer opportunities to explore at home or school, such as China ink, pastels, charcoal, oil paint, and clay. They acquire theoretical notions and draw inspiration from the great masters of the art world. Some art camps even organize an exhibit at the end of the camp so that friends and family can see all the creations. Theatre is a great way to break out of one’s shell. At summer camp, children will be able

to set aside their shyness and learn to express themselves in public. They will improve their memorization skills and they will also be able to study different actingmethods. Dramatic art includes many behind-thescenes activities, and during theatre camp children will be introduced to many of them, including lights and sound, costumes, makeup, and stage design. The performing arts are also a great way for children to discover their talents, develop a work ethic, and build self-esteem. All branches of the performing arts teach students about teamwork. At a performing arts camp, children are given the opportunity to work on a project throughout their stay and then have the very rewarding experience of presenting it in front of family and friends.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

At an early age, I developed an ability I thought at the time saved me from many a disappointment, worry and even heartache, and put me in another world. It took a lot of patience, a great deal of practice and much trial and error, but when I had perfected the exercise, it gave me great satisfaction and peace of mind. Through deep concentration and forcing my mind away from an unpleasant situation, I was able to move my thoughts from the source of my anguish and into a more pleasant place. This time of year, there were many occasions for me to put into practice this talent I had developed. The ice was gone from the Bonnechere, the current was fast and the mud pout could be seen from the shore. The three brothers had been watching the spring breakup for weeks, and now the time had finally come for them to do some fishing. I hated the very thought of the method used by the brothers to catch the fish. Using spears, some of which were made from a pitchfork from the barn, they straddled an old tree that had fallen across the river at a narrow point and stabbed them without mercy. When the mud pout became part of our supper, Mother, aware of my squeamish stomach, would put a slice of meat on my plate, or let me have scrambled eggs. Then, as I sat at the supper table, I would put into place my talent. I would picture in my mind pieces of bologna, my very favourite treat, sitting on the platter of mud pout in front of me. Even when my tormentor of a brother Emerson would smack his lips for my benefit, I was able to change in my mind, the picture of the mud pout and turn it into bologna. This talent was put to good use at the Northcote School on more than one occasion too. If my rival Marguirite was getting on my nerves, which happened at least once a day, I would picture her in my mind with homemade flour bag underwear under her skirt. She made sure every girl at the Northcote School knew that her

Able to move into a more pleasant place

underpinnings came from Walker’s Store in Renfrew. I got so good at this trick of imagination, that I could even see Pride of the Valley written across her seat. Emerson often said I was scared of my own shadow and that wasn’t all that far from the truth. In the dark of night, in my bed, the sounds in the country terrified me. The whippoorwills in the distance making their eerie cries, the wolves howling as they skirted the barnyard looking for their next meal, and the old house cracking from the frost in the dead of winter were all sounds that kept sleep at bay. Then I would call on this special talent I had developed over time. When these sounds surrounded me in my bed, I would force my mind’s eye to a street corner in Renfrew, to see the Salvation Army band playing and singing their rousing hymns. I would be able to block out the frightening sounds around me and sleep would come. This escape talent came to good use on Sundays too. We sat in the front pew at church. Our minister, a giant of a man, would come swooping down the aisle and climb into the little cubicle raised above the floor, scanning the congregation before he said a word. I was sure he was singling me out with his eyes, and knew every sin I had committed since the Sunday before. His thundering voice shook the rafters, and his enormous surplus billowed out as he waved his arms, looking for all the world like a large black bird. That’s when I would look over his head to a spot on the blue painted wall. I would pretend I was an angel, and my mission in life, in my mind, was to help the starving Armenians. These were the people Mother always said we took the food right out of their mouths if we didn’t eat everything on our plates. I thought they lived in Arnprior. So when I took on the role in my mind’s eye of this little floating angel high in our church, I pictured myself doing good deeds. The fear of the minister vanished. Such were the unachievable dreams of a young child of the Depression. All made possible through the simple act of imagination.

EMC news - Everyone has experienced it and everyone knows about it but just what is grief. There is very little information written for people about appropriate expectations that they can have when grieving. That’s why St. John the Baptist Anglican Church on Fowler Street in Richmond, in partnership with Bereavement Support & Education – Ottawa, is presenting a workshop entitled “Grief: What It is …and Isn’t…” on Saturday, March 30 at the church. This is the first of four workshops dealing with various aspects of grief

which will take place at St. John’s over the course of this year. Attendance at this March 30 workshop and the others that will follow this year is free, although donations will be accepted. Coffee and refreshments will be provided. This first workshop on grief on Saturday, March 30 will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon. For more information about these workshops, please contact Rev. Michel Dubord at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond at 613-838-9643 or via email at info@saintjohnsrichmond.ca.

the annual Girls Night Out event hosted by Friends of Hospice Ottawa is moving to Algonquin College this year, with the event scheduled for Friday, May 31. The move was necessitated by the fact that the Richmond arena will be undergoing ice pad renovation work this year and the arena was not available. But despite the change of venue, Girls Night Out will offer the same fun filled experience as in past years, with firefighters escorting ladies to their seats, dinner and drinks, entertainment and both silent and live auctions. Tickets this year are $70 per person, with a $20 tax receipt available. All of the proceeds will go once again this year to help fund the programs and services that Friends of Hospice provides free of charge in the community, such as caregiver support, bereavement support and transportation service….The Guiding community in Richmond will be going door-to-door in the village on Tuesday, March 26, selling Girl Guide cookies. The famous chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies are being sold. These are peanut free and will cost $5 per box. For more information about Guiding programs in Richmond or to order cookies, please call Richmond Community Guider Debbie Markell at 613-838-5998…Isabel Thompson was taken to hospital by ambulance last week. She as a result missed the annual Irish Stew Dinner and Auction held at St. Paul’s United Church last Saturday evening of which she was one of the main organizer. Another key organizer, Judy Wagdin, was also missing from the event as she was out in British Columbia…
