Christmas gift basket up for grabs



Thousands of Christmas lights moved along Stittsville Main Street in the darkness of the early evening on Saturday, Nov. 27 thanks to 50 decorated floats and entries in the annual Parade of Lights. There was Christmas music as many of the floats featured not only lights but music as well. There were lots of smiling faces beaming from many of the floats, with many Christmas greetings filling the frosty minus six degree Celsius air. This all brought the wonder and spirit of Christmas to the hundreds who lined the parade route along Stittsville Main Street, with huge clusters around the Carp Road and Abbott Street intersections. But the real hit in this year’s parade, from the point of view of awe and amazement, had to be the spectacular flame which regularly burst into the night sky from the Re/Max Real Estate float as it moved along the parade route. Re/Max, of course, is well known for its hot air balloon logo and so what better float attraction than a hot air balloon power source which emitted a flame leaping up to 20 feet into the sky. Whenever the flame lept, the oohs and awhs from the immediate crowd lining the street followed, with the light from the flame illuminating the faces of those on both sides of the street. It may not have been a traditional Christmas light like those that adorned the entries in the parade but it certainly lit up the crowd in more ways than one as it moved along the route. Flame, though, does have a place in Christmas as evidenced by the scene on the Stittsville Royal Canadian Legion float which featured a scene huddling around a fire with an appropriate Bing Crosby Christmas tune playing.


A giant Christmas gift basket is up for grabs at Scotiabank in Stittsville. Once again this year, for the third year in a row, Scotiabank is raffling off this Christmas gift basket containing over $600 worth of items ranging from a golf bag to power tools to toys to Christmas decorations to Ottawa Senators memorabilia to wine (and even wine glasses). The raffle draw will be held on Monday, Dec. 20. What a pre-Christmas treat winning it will be for some lucky person. Anyone can enter this raffle draw. Just drop into Scotiabank at the Shops of Main Street Plaza in Stittsville and buy one or more tickets for the draw. You can buy one ticket for $5 or get three for only $10 which is a great deal. When you drop in to buy a ticket, you will also be able to view the giant gift basket which is on display at the branch.

A flame soars into the night sky from the Re/Max Real Estate float in the Parade of Lights in FLAME, SEE 9 Stittsville last Saturday. This fiery float drew lots of attention in the parade.

Grand slam after lifetime of playing JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF A grand slam in baseball happens once every so often. A grand slam in bridge, not so often. But for David Faubert of Stittsville, this once in a lifetime event has happened – a grand slam in no trump that was bid and made. “I’ve played over 60 years and this is the first,” he said last Friday, a couple of weeks after he and partner Ron Sheffield accomplished the feat in a game against Mary Heney and Joyce Sager. The four of them usually play three times a week at the Stittsville Villa retirement community on Stittsville Main Street. Mr. Faubert also plays bridge on Friday afternoons at the Stittsville arena hall as well as euchre at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Tuesday afternoons. He explains that a grand slam in no trump in bridge hardly ever happens, comparing it to a rare 29 hand in cribbage. “I started playing with cards when I was about three years old,” he says and started playing actual games such as cribbage when he was seven. He had older siblings which hastened his introduction to cards. “Cards was in the family,” he says, recalling that his parents played a card game that was something of a combination between bridge and euchre. When he was a youngster at Sarsfield, the family would walk to the closest neighbour about a mile away for an evening of cards.

“It was fun,” he recalls. Mr. Faubert acknowledges that bridge experts might comment that he and his partner Ron had no business bidding a grand slam in no trump when they had one ace missing from their hands. Had Joyce Sager, who had the lead, not led a club which was the strongest suit in her hand, the grand slam attempt would have failed. A lead in spades would have thwarted the grand slam. But clubs was lead and the rest is history. “That was the only tricky thing,” Mr. Faubert explains, although he also had to finesse around the queen of clubs which Joyce also held. “That’s what makes it interesting – to know when to finesse and not to finesse,” he says. Mr. Faubert acknowledges that a bridge player gets good hands and bad hands and when the bad hands come, he just smiles and laughs in the knowledge that at some point he will get good hands. He attributes some of his card playing ability to courses aimed at developing memory which he took during his 25 year career in communications and radar in the air force. His memory helps him recall what cards have been played. After retiring from the air force, he spent another 25 years as a land developer and then for 12 years worked in the home renovation industry before retiring this year at the age of 83. “I’m on my third retirement,” he says about his life’s work history.

Besides playing cards four or five times a week, he does quite a bit of reading. He also

Holy Spirit becomes Freggie Friday school JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF His hair is broccoli. His mouth is a watermelon. His arms are corn. His legs are beans (yellow and green). One foot is a strawberry. And so it goes. No wonder his name is Freggie. He is all made up of fruits and vegetables. And he was in Stittsville on Wednesday, Nov. 24, making an appearance at Holy Spirit Catholic School which is becoming a Freggie Fridays school this week. Freggie, you see, is the mascot for this pilot project that is now introduced in about 30 Ottawa Catholic School Board schools. The program is geared at encouraging students to bring and eat fruits and vegetables for their snacks and lunches at school, particularly on Fridays. For his visit to Holy Spirit School, Freggie was accompanied by retired Ottawa Catholic School Board principal Linda Mosley who introduced the program at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Kanata two years ago and now is the program’s promoter. “There’s all different ways you can bring in your fruits and vegetables,� she told the assembled Holy Spirit students, giving the example of making apple sauce from apples. During the presentation, in which she was assisted by Freggie, the students learned that they should eat four to six servings of fruits and vegetables every day. One serving fits in your hand, she said. It was explained that fruits and vegetables are a source of vitamins and calcium and other beneficial nutrition, giving a person energy. “They keep you going all day long,� Ms. Mosley JOHN CURRY PHOTO Celebrating the introduction of Freggie Fridays at Holy Spirit Catholic School in Stittsville, along with Freggie himself, right, back, are, at said about fruits and vegetables.

8 Reasons NOT to Visit a Chiropractor! If you’re looking for reasons not to visit a chiropractor, here are eight of them! 1.) You don’t have a spine. If you’re born sans spine, there’s really no need to worry about spinal degeneration, is there? 2.) If you can’t see it, it must be fine. Skin, eyes, hair, teeth… These front-facing body parts are important because other people can see them. If a healthy spine was really that important, it wouldn’t be in the back. 3.) You love taking medication. Taking risks makes life more enjoyable! Dizziness, headaches, dry mouth, constipation, seizures, cancer, death… What’s not to like about side effects? 4.) Your insurance doesn’t pay for it. Money is for important stuff like Netflix, cigarettes, and gambling. If your insurance plan doesn’t cover it, maybe chiropractic care just isn’t necessary? 5.) They don’t prescribe drugs. Why would you want to go to a doctor who doesn’t think you need another prescription? (See #3.)

New Listing!! 5541 Ferry Road, Fitzroy Attractive & extremely spacious 3 bedrm split level home, big 2 car garage, private 1 acre treed lot, circular driveway, new septic 2009, huge country kitchen, L-shaped livrm & dinrm, walkout lower level famrm with new woodsove 2009, laundry on bedrm level, den next to famrm, includes 5 appliances, central vac, shed, garage door openers! $249,900

6.) They think lifestyle “stress” can make you sick. Apparently they’re not aware of bad genes. Everybody knows you only get sick because certain diseases just run in the family.

Great Space!! 579 Bellamy Road, White Lake Village Incredibly spacious 3+1 bedrm bungalow on a pretty 99’ x 320’ lot backing onto parkland, fenced area for children or pets, 2 covered porches, cathedral ceiling in livrm, hardwd in livrm & dinrm, ceramic in kitchen, baths & entries. Finished walkout basement with 4th bedrm, huge famrm, 3 pce bath, laundry/mud room! Includes appliances. A real pretty home so act now! $229,900

7.) They expect you to do stuff at home. They want you to make time for rest, exercise, and stretching. On top of that, they think you should change your diet. Evidently they don’t understand how busy you are… 8.) Besides, you’re impervious to mistakes. You eat just fine, and there’s nothing wrong with the way you’re living. Even if your “habits” are making you gain weight and age prematurely, that’s none of the doctor’s business! Their job is to get you out of pain so you can get back to doing the things that brought you there in the first place.

Immaculate! 31 Cranston St., Arnprior Beautiful & updated 3+1 bedrm home in terrific area, 60’ x 100’ lot, private fenced yard, inground pool with cabana, 2 car garage, main flr laundry, hardwd & tile on main level, fireplace, gorgeous updated ensuite bath, finished basement has rec rm, 2 pce bath, spare bedroom & lots of storage, newer shingles, hi-efficency gas furnace & windows.

Holy Spirit students surprised Freggie, who left the gymnasium temporarily, by developing a fruit salad presentation that listed possible ingredients such as grapes, bananas, apples, peaches, pears and plums, all put together with movements. On Freggie Fridays, Holy Spirit students who eat a fruit or vegetable for lunch or a snack will get to write their name on a ballot. Once a month, two ballots will be drawn for each class, with the students receiving a certificate. The more fruits and veggies that students eat, the more ballots they can enter for this monthly draw. The school council will also be providing a prize. Participating schools also receive a “We’re a Freggie School” poster. These schools can also apply for a $1,000 award that is presented to help a school with its healthy, active living initiatives.

There is also a Freggie Friday website through which students can write to Freggie and can do other Freggie-related activities. This Freggie Friday program is being carried out in partnership with the Canadian Produce Marketing Association.

So-called Black Friday in the United States saw big crowds of shoppers, all seeking door-crasher specials. It’s a tradition of the day following the American Thanksgiving day. You could say that the Christmas pudding being sold at the first-ever Christmas Bazaar and Tea Room held by the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville was something of a doorcrasher special. This may become a tradition as the event becomes an annual attraction. The CWL ladies had prepared 30 of the Christmas puddings, made from an old family recipe that featured a plethora of ingredients such as raisins, currents, citrus peel, brown sugar, flour, mixed fruit, eggs, milk, cherries, cinnamon, spices and suet, all mixed together, steamed for four hours, allowed to age and then placed in an attractive wrapper with a bow, complete with attached recipes for a variety of sauces that can make it even more delicious. And these 30 puddings went in the blink of an eye, gone within half an hour or so of the opening of the doors of the parish hall at 10 a.m. last Saturday. Their popularity caused CWL president Gaye Lalonde to predict that the CWL ladies will have to prepare at least twice as many for next year’s event. This Christmas Bazaar and Tea Room proved to be a great success, not only for the sale of the Christmas puddings but overall. The baking proved popular. The handmade crafts drew attention. And all of the other at-

tractions like the silent auction helped make the event a seasonal hit. Even city of Ottawa mayor-elect Jim Watson dropped in for a visit. He knows a good thing when he hears about it. Proceeds from this Christmas Bazaar and Tea Room are going to the Stittsville Food Bank and to the Youville Centre in Ottawa where young mothers are supported and can get an accredited high school education, improving the future for both themselves and their children.



St. Philip’s Parish is holding its annual Christmas bake sale on Saturday, December 4 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the parish hall in Richmond. Homemade pies, baked goods, fudge. Everyone welcome.

greetings to one and all and youngsters along the parade route eagerly waved and shouted back greetings to the red suited Christmas icon. Every float and entry in the parade added to the festive atmosphere. Of particular note were the entry of Carleton-Mississippi Mills federal Liberal candidate Karen McCrimmon whose vehicle had two flying pigs on its roof. This made sense when reference was made to an accompanying message that cited a frequently voiced sentiment that people will vote Liberal only when pigs fly. Well, they did in this parade – it remains to be seen if the rest of the saving will hold true; the Guardian Angels Catholic School float which featured lighted candy cane shaped decorations as well as “Go Gators” declarations; the Wine Villa entry with a giant inflated Santa Claus and a lighted Christmas tree, all with a wine bottle floating in the air behind the float; the Stittsville Home Building Centre float, a brightly lit entry with an inflated Frosty the Snowman and a small building outlined with lights; the Jackson Trails School Age Program float which had music and featured Santa’s workshop; and the Ecole Jean Paul II float, brightly lit and filled with people in Santa hats. The parade, which began from the School Board Depot site on Stittsville Main Street right at 7 p.m. sharp, as advertised, was led by the Arnprior-McNab Pipes and Drums. It took half an hour for the parade to pass any point on the route and the last float, Santa Claus on the ladder truck, passed through the Abbott Street intersection right at 8 p.m. But, really, every float in this year’s 12th

annual Parade of Lights was a Christmas joy to behold. What a way to start off the Christmas season in Stittsville! Thanks, Stittsville

Lights on - Christmas is here! As if the annual Parade of Lights last Saturday evening was not enough of a spectacular kickoff for the Christmas season in Stittsville, the turning on of the Christmas lights in the trees at Village Square right after the parade added a seasonal exclamation point to the message – Christmas has arrived in the village. The lights on the trees throughout the park came on in unison, lighting up the sky and putting smiles on the faces of the 300 or so people who attended the event, just after taking in the parade on the adjacent Stittsville Main Street. It was at 8:07 p.m. that the lights came on, following a vocal countdown led by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, Kanata North councillor Marianne Wilkinson and Carleton-Mississippi

Village Association for once again providing this Christmas spectacular to the community of Stittsville.

Mills MP Gordon O’Connor. This 10-9-8-76-5-4-3-2-1-0 countdown came on the heels of the briefest of ceremonies when MC Mike O’Rourke introduced and sought comments from each of the three guest celebrities. “What a great event, ladies and gentlemen,” exclaimed councillor Qadri before wishing everyone Merry Christmas. MP Gordon O’Connor noted that this was the season of shopping but he also urged people to think about the less fortunate at this holiday time of the year. Councillor Wilkinson remarked that Stittsville had arranged for winter weather for its Parade of Lights this year. Hot chocolate was flowing at the Village Square gathering which was capped off with a singsong.

This year’s Parade of Lights had floats and entries of all descriptions and sizes, from giant flatbed trucks right down to a solo walker pushing a carriage with a dog in a Santa costume, all lit up by a single tall light. Among the flatbed floats were the snowmobile trails association entry featuring snowmobiles and a lighted hut; the Stittsville concert band playing Christmas music; city of Ottawa councillor Shad Qadri’s float which carried Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor and Penny Penguin, one of the mascots of the Stittsville Village Association’s Winterfest event; and the Brown’s Your Independent Grocer float featuring seasonal inflatables, lots of music and its own snowmaking machine which sent snowflakes fluttering out the back of the float. This year’s parade had a thin snow covered landscape as its backdrop but had it been like recent years, this snow from the Brown’s YIG float would have been the only snow around. But the Brown’s YIG float did more than just produce snow; it created a real Christmas atmosphere, right from its all-embracing music (what great Christmas melodies) to its enthusiastic drivers who motored through the Abbott Street intersection wildly clapping their hands and urging onlookers to do the same. Such enthusiasm is contagious and so is the Christmas spirit. Of course, right after this douse of Christmas spirit came the jolly gentleman himself, Santa Claus, riding in the bucket of the brightly decorated ladder truck from the Stittsville fire hall. He shouted Christmas

Here comes Christmas and all it means

Can you believe it? Christmas is now less than four weeks away and counting. It is coming fast. There seems to be so much to do. Shopping, putting up the Christmas decorations, sending out Christmas greetings and attending Christmas events. We hope that everyone will have an opportunity to attend a Christmas concert or event. They help so much in getting you in the spirit of Christmas. We hope too that you think of others, especially the less fortunate and blessed in society, during this upcoming Christmas season. Whether that means giving to the local food bank or to a charity of choice such as the Snowsuit Fund is up to you. But please do it because Christmas is so much about giving and looking out for others.


There is, of course, the religious aspect of Christmas. Some follow this tradition, some don’t. We hope that those who believe in the religious significance and blessedness of Christmas will have the opportunities that they want and need to make Christmas a time when they find themselves in a closer relationship with their God. Santa and all that he represents is a wonderful Christmas tradition, of course, and we hope that families and loved ones are able to share the Christmas experience together. Remember, as well, those Canadian soldiers who are in far flung parts of the world and will not have the benefit this year of spending a Christmas around the home hearth. We should never forget the sacrifice that they make day in and day out to preserve our freedoms.

And, most importantly, try to take time this Christmas to thank all those who are close to you for their involvement in your life, for their caring for your well being and for their ongoing support and love. Christmas is a great time of the year, not just because of the presents and gifts, not just because of the Christmas music, not just because of the warm thoughts that Christmas engenders in everyone but also because it provides an opportunity for us all to pause and reflect. We get to realize that what is really important in life is not based in material goods but is found in our relationships and the love and respect that we show not only to those whom we care for intimately but also for everyone in this world, all made in the image of God and all craving what we all want – a world of peace where love and goodness prevails.

pauses at appropriate times can enhance a message, letting the audience members absorb what they have just heard. Most importantly, though, pauses can eliminate those annoying “ums” and “aws” and “you knows.” “The recognition of silence is a terrific tool on stage,” public speaking trainer and motivational speaker Bob William Goy told members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at the Club’s Nov. 23 meeting. He said that it is a misconception to think that every moment of a public speaking event has to be filled with speech. Not only is silence far more pleasant than nervous “ums” and “aws” but silence can be a powerful tool for communication, he added. This was one of the public speaking tips which Mr. Goy relayed to the Rotary Club members in his presentation. The other tip which he provided

is that a speaker should never end a speech with a question and answer session which he says just about guarantees a low ball ending to the presentation. A speaker wants to make the final statement, he said. “You want to finish on a high,” Mr. Goy said, noting that with questions and answers, a speaker is not in control of what happens. He told the Rotary Club members that public speaking is a 100 percent learned behaviour. He himself, over the past three years, has gone from novice to his present status through involvement with Toastmasters, an international organization devoted to developing public speaking skills, reading books on public speaking and training with a world class speech trainer. He said that public speaking involves three skills, namely communication, leadership and confidence. All three can be nurtured

Stittsville project needs votes Fight leads to charges JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF

It’s time to vote again. Main Street Community Services, the Stittsville-based provider of services to special needs youngsters and their families, placed sixth in the large project category ($100,000 to $500,000) in the first round of voting in the Aviva Community Fund national competition. This has vaulted Main Street Community Services and its project called “A Place of Our Own” into the semi-finals of the competition where they will be up against 29 other projects, all

vying for a place in the competition finals where a panel of judges will decide the winners and allocate the $1,000,000 in funds up for grabs. The semi-finals will once again be an online voting competition, beginning on Dec. 2. Voting for the Main Street Community Services project can be done at A person can vote once each day during the voting period. Main Street Community Services received almost 5,000 online votes in the opening round of the competition, placing sixth in the large project category and bypassing upcoming

second and third rounds of voting to go directly to the semi-finals. There were over 600 projects proposed in the large project category. At present Main Street Community Services operates out of premises in the former Stittsville Public School facility (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program) on Stittsville Main Street. However, the programs offered by Main Street Community Services have outgrown the premises and space restrictions are preventing the introduction of new programs. In addition, the second storey premises are not handicapped accessible.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS A fight between two youths in Stittsville has resulted in injuries to one youth and criminal charges against the other youth. It all happened about 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24 on Orville Street in Stittsville as the Ottawa Police Service was called to the scene of the altercation. During the fight, a 17 year old youth brandished a knife and stabled the other youth twice. The youth stabbed was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and later released. The 17 year old youth who did the stabbing was arrested at the scene and he has been charged with a number of offenses including possession of a dangerous weapon, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, uttering threats and breach of an undertaking. The youth appeared in court for a show cause hearing on Thursday afternoon, Nov. 25. The Ottawa Police Service is continuing to investigate the incident. 401561

City of Ottawa Councillor Reports By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa On Thursday November 25, the Minister of Environment approved Waste Management’s Terms of Reference for its Environmental Assessment on the company’s proposal to expand the Carp Road Landfill renamed the West Carleton Environmental Centre. To view the document, click on the following link: < eaab/Documents/wcec_notice_of_approval.pdf> I am disappointed with the decision of the Minister of Environment, especially after all the work done by the community and the clarity of their opposition to the expansion plans. This issue has been a top priority for our community, please be assured that despite this latest piece of news I will continue to raise this issue at the council table at City Hall. I will continue to push for the implementation of new technologies for waste handling and continue in the fight against the out dated, ancient practice of burying waste. As more information becomes available, I will be updating my website, wwww. Please visit the website to view new information regarding the West Carleton Environmental Centre proposal. Hazeldean Road construction update Residents, I have received the following notice from City Staff regarding the Hazeldean Road widening project phase one and phase two from Terry Fox Drive to Carp Road. Hazeldean Road phase one from Terry Fox Drive to west of Iber Road • The contractor has completed majority of the roadway construction on phase one from Terry Fox Drive to west of Iber Road intersection. The outstanding work will be completed in the spring of 2011. • Both phases one and two contractors are trying to complete street lights installation on their respective section before mid December. Once the street lights are installed and energized then all four traffic lanes from Carp Road to street # 6 (west of

Waste Management Terms of Reference approved detour) will be open for public traffic. • During the winter months of 2011 the phase one contractor will focus mainly on the construction of Car River bridge. As per the construction schedule, it is expected to be completed before mid March 2011. The approach slab construction will take place in the spring of 2011 (section of the roadway connecting the Carp R iver Bridge and the Hazeldean Road widening section). Hazeldean Road phase two from west of Iber to east of Carp Road. • Noise wall footings around the condominium property east of Springbrook has been completed and the section west of Sprinbrook is in progress and as per the construction schedule. The noise wall work would be completed before the end of December 2010. • The contractor is targeting to complete phase two roadway construction on or before mid December 2010 before the contractor shuts down for the winter months. • If the weather permits, the target is to complete concrete curb and the sidewalk construction on the south side of Hazeldean Road eastbound lane between Sweetnam and Springbrook before the end of this week. • The remaining base course asphalt paving between Sweetnam and Springbrook including all side streets up to the project limits will be paved before the 2010 winter shut down. • The installation of street lights between Stittsville Main and Carp Road have been completed and will soon be energized. The next target is to complete installation of street lights between Stittsville Main and Iber Road. Once this section is completed, then all four lanes would open for public traffic. I thank you for your on-going patience and understanding. I fully acknowledge the construction work will make commuting difficult at times, but the long-term benefit will make it all worthwhile. The widening of Hazeldean Road is vital to meet our community’s growing infrastructure needs. If you have any questions or concerns,

please do not hesitate to contact my office or Suraj Harish, Project Manager, Design and Construction for the City’s Municipal West Division. Community helping neighbours With the holiday season upon us, it is time we reflect on how fortunate each one of us is, while we extend an offer of support to those who are in need. Several donation drives are operating throughout the community during the month of December. The number of families visiting food banks continues to increase, and that trend is expected to continue given the current economic state. With this in mind, the Stittsville Food Bank is running its annual food hamper program out of Brown’s Independent Grocer. There is a list of requested food and toiletry items available at the grocery store and you can choose what you wish to donate. Donations can be made up until December 14. As well, various community associations will be going door-todoor collecting donations. The Christmas Angels, Gertrude Brown and Janice LeBlanc, have helped to establish the Angel Trees program at St. Thomas Anglican Church and Holy Spirit Catholic Church respectively. The program accepts Christmas presents for children under the age of 16. Each angel on the Christmas tree represents a child under the age of 16. When gifts are donated, the gifts are wrapped and placed along with the Stittsville Food Bank’s Christmas hamper. The Kanata and Stittsville Community Police Centre is also accepting non-perishable food items for the Kanata / Stittsville Food Cupboard. There is a drop box set up outside the facility that is located at 211 Huntmar Road. I also encourage you to volunteer in our community through the many charitable organizations and community associations that operate throughout the year. I cannot thank you enough for spreading Christmas cheer this holiday season to families less fortunate.

Santa Claus is coming to … the ward office With Christmas just weeks away, Santa Claus is paying an early visit to Stittsville, just in time to receive everyone’s Christmas wish list. On December 11, Santa and his helpers will be at my ward office, located inside the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, meeting with the children of the community. Santa will pay a visit from 10am-12pm. Digital photos of your children and Santa will also be available. As well, children will have an opportunity to decorate gingerbread cookies from 9am-12pm. I look forward to seeing many of you on December 11. Parade of Lights rings in the holiday season A big thank you to the Stittsville Village Association, the organizing committee and the many volunteers who hosted a tremendous Parade of Lights celebration. Thousands of residents lined Main Street and gathered at Village Square Park as over 40 Christmas-themed floats weaved their way through the community. It was a great way to ring in the holiday season and I thank everyone for participating. I would also like to thank the Honourable MP Gordon O’Connor and Kanata North Councillor Marianne Wilkinson for taking part in the festivities and being a part of my float. Always listening and acting on your concerns As your Councillor, I always welcome your keen input and ideas on how we can improve Stittsville. Please contact our office anytime by phone at 613-580-2476 or by e-mail at My ward office is located in the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, located at 1500 Shea Road. The hours of operation for the summer are Mondays 9-2pm, Wednesdays 3-8pm, Fridays 9-5pm, and Saturdays 9-1pm. Please do not hesitate to pay us a visit.

Avoiding gift-giving disasters

Kanata Centrum Mall 250 Greenbank Rd. (next toTip Top) (Greenbank Mall at Hunt Club) 613-592-4488 613-726-6340

By Kate Mervynson (NC)—It’s difficult to find the perfect gift, but it’s a lot less difficult to avoid the wrong gift. Deals and shopping website has some advice to keep awkward silences to a minimum when it’s time to unwrap presents. Don’t assume that in-store and online prices are the same. Sometimes, competition drives online prices lower than the in-store prices at the same retailer. At the same time, bargain-hunting sites like also feature additional online discount codes or free shipping promotions to save even more. Parents get to “enjoy” children’s toys as well. Your nephew might be crazy about

a big drum set or an ultra-realistic remote control spider, but his parents and siblings might not be. Try a handheld music game (with volume controls) or a non-scary remote control car instead.

Do some research. If you’re buying a video game, make sure you’re buying the right system and that it’s the current version. You don’t want to show up with the hit game from 2007. Likewise, if you’re giving sugary treats or wine as gifts, make sure you’re not distributing them to dieters, diabetics or teetotallers. Be wary of “good intentions”. Even if you mean well, giving gifts like a self-help book, a gym memberships or a piece of exercise equipment may offend people. Instead, you could give a gift card to a sporting goods store or an MP3 player designed to withstand rigorous workouts. As for the self-help books? There’s never a good time to give them as gifts.

Holiday lighting checklist: Twinkle and sparkle the safer way (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Decorative lights add warmth and ambiance to holiday gatherings, but these festive lights should always be hung with care around the holidays. CSA International, a leader in testing and certification, has created the following checklist to help Canadians avoid common seasonal dangers and keep the holidays glowing bright. â&#x20AC;˘ Out with the old: Carefully inspect holiday light strings each year and discard any with frayed cords, cracked lamp holders or loose connections. â&#x20AC;˘ Size â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em up: Unplug light strings before replacing bulbs and check to ensure replacement bulbs match the voltage and wattage of the original. Make certain that bulb reflectors are the correct size for the light string.

â&#x20AC;˘ Spot the mark: When purchasing light strings, extension cords and electrical decorations, look for a certification mark such as one from CSA International that provides assurance that the products are tested and certified to the applicable standards for safety and performance. Also, ensure that outdoor light strings, cords, spotlights and floodlights are certified by CSA International and marked for outdoor use.

fasteners rather than metal nails or tacks to hold light strings in place.

â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tacky: Never hang decorations from fire sprinklers, or allow them to obstruct exit corridors or exit signs, fire extinguishers and hose cabinets. Never tack or staple lighting strings or extension cords to a wall or cubicle. When hanging lights outdoors, keep electrical connectors above ground, out of puddles and snow and away from metal eavestroughs. Use insulated

â&#x20AC;˘ Watch the flicker of candles: Do not use open flames or candles on or near flammable materials such as wreaths, trees or paper decorations.

â&#x20AC;˘ Safe storage: After the holidays, wrap and store lights and decorations in their original packaging, as they likely contain manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructions on replacement bulbs and details for proper product use. Remove outdoor lights promptly after the holiday season to avoid damage caused by extended exposure to harsh weather conditions.

â&#x20AC;˘ Designate those decorations: When decorating the tree, place breakable ornaments on the higher limbs to protect children and pets. Remember to always use flameresistant decorations.

â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get juiced: Before working with outdoor wiring, turn off the electricity to the supply outlet and unplug the connection. â&#x20AC;˘ Fresh or fake, be safe: If you buy a real tree, make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresh. Fresh trees will be less likely to dry out and become a fire hazard. Artificial trees with electrical lights should have a certification mark on them and should be made of fireresistant material. â&#x20AC;˘ Pardon the interruption: Whenever possible, connect all outdoor lighting into receptacles protected by weatherproof ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI). These can provideprotection from electric shock by sensing ground leakage and cutting electrical power.

tives on this new library board. In the spring of 1975, this new Goulbourn Township Public Library Board decided that the time had come for Richmond to have a library building of its own. Various alternatives were considered before it was decided to purchase a portable classroom available in Belleville for $5,700. Goulbourn township council gave permission to place this portable classroom among the trees in what was then Centennial Park on Perth Street at the west end of the village. Wintario grants were sought and citizens and community groups in Richmond donated to fundraising efforts. The new Richmond library branch was formally opened on Oct. 23, 1976 when Goulbourn mayor Betty Hill cut the ribbon. Total cost of this new Richmond library facility was $51,386, of which $39,725 was covered by donations and grants. Ten years later, in Nov. 1986, a newly expanded Richmond branch of the Goulbourn Township Public Library was officially opened, with then Goulbourn township mayor Anton Wytenburg cutting the ribbon. This involved a new 1700 square foot addition to the library plus the renovation of the existing structure, giving a hwole new appearance to the branch. Total cost of this expansion and renovation was $171,000. Goulbourn township council contributed $17,000 annually for three years. A group known as The Friends of the Richmond Library raised about $30,000 as the community portion of the fundraising. One of the group’s fundraising endeavours was selling “square feet” in the new addition for $65 each. The names of all those who contributed were included on a list erected in the branch. Wintario provided a sizeable grant to round out the funding for this expansion and renovation. With the creation of the new amalgamated city of Ottawa in 2001, the Richmond library branch became one of the 33 library branches in the new city’s library system.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF An open house is being held at the Richmond branch of the Ottawa Public Library this Friday, Dec. 3 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is meant to be an opportunity for residents in the community to meet library staff and to enjoy some refreshments. Everyone is welcome to attend. Karen Craig has been managing the Richmond branch for just over a year now, having taken over from the retiring Sharon McMullen. The Richmond library will soon be reaching its 40th anniversary of service to the Richmond community. While the inaugural Richmond library opened in Jan. 1972, its roots really go back to the year before, 1971, when a community library board, with Nancy Smith as chair, was formed with the goal of establishing a lending library in the community. Arrangements were made with the then-Carleton Board of Education for this community library to be housed at the South Carleton High School library on a temporary basis. The long-term plan was to establish a permanent public library building in Richmond. After opening in Jan. 1972, the Richmond library was operated for its first eight months of existence solely by the efforts of volunteers. It was only in Sept. 1972 that Muriel Gingras was hired as a library assistant. In 1972, the first year of operation, total circulation was 3,910, with a membership of 342. In 1973, circulation grew to 8,624 with a membership of 715. This circulation and membership growth matched an increase in the hours of operation of the library. The amalgamation of the villages of Richmond and Stittsville with rural Goulbourn township in 1974 resulted in the creation of the eight-member Goulbourn Township Public Library Board with representations from Stittsville, Glen Cairn, rural Goulbourn and Richmond. John Harrison and Jim Scammell were the inaugurual Richmond representa-

Thank You Metroland Media would like to thank our preferred business partners for their support with the launch of our four new community newspapers:


Stittsville’s Seguin family involved in ‘Willy Wonka’ PETER MAITLAND SPECIAL TO THE NEWS In one way or another, a member of the Seguin family of Stittsville has been involved in eight productions by Suzart Productions, a non-profit Ottawa community theatre company. But the upcoming musical “Willy Wonka” marks a new level of involvement as it is the first time that all four Seguin family members will be filling important roles in the production of the show. Indeed, four years ago, if you had told Marc Seguin that he would be intimately involved with a theatre company with his entire family, he probably would not have believed it. But that is exactly what has happened. This month, in the Suzart Productions’ musical “Willy Wonka,” all four members of the Seguin family – Marc, 47, his wife Ellen, 46, and their daughters Alina, 25, and Anna, 15 –are playing important roles in the production. This is what Suzart Productions is known for, namely putting on family-oriented community theatre shows by family members. “I never thought that we’d have all four of us in this,” says Mr. Seguin. “We really did think that we were doing this just for Anna. But I Love the fact that Suzart does live up to their mandate. They really do push to have everybody have a good time – whether you’re 6 or 60 or 8 or 80.” By day Mr. Seguin is the chief architect for Embotics, a computer software company. His job involves developing operating systems that allow customers to use their com-

puters to their full potential. When involved with Suzart Productions, thought, he is currently the stage manager for the upcoming musical “Willy Wonka,” a stage version of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” In his role as stage manager, Mr. Seguin has to ensure that all of the sets are moved onstage properly as the play progresses. While Mr. Seguin is serving as stage manager for “Willy Wonka,” Mrs. Seguin is serving as its director, her first directing assignment, while Alina, the elder daughter, is the musical director and Anna, the younger daughter, is playing the role of Violet, one of the play’s lead characters. This involvement makes for an interesting family dynamic. While Mr. Seguin has been a stage manager previously and so is familiar with the job, he notes that it is different when his wife is the director, one daughter is the musical director and the other daughter is in the cast. “But it’s no different than dinner at our house,” he says. “It’s entertaining.” His wife agrees. “We’re closer now than we’ve ever been,” she says. “It’s incredible.” “It really gives us something to do together and talk about together and enjoy together as a group,” says Alina who is a full time psychology and linguistics student at the University of Ottawa.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just me doing it or just Alina doing it,â&#x20AC;? says Anna, a grade ten student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all of us working together. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more fun that way.â&#x20AC;? It all started in August 2007 when Mrs. Seguin went on the internet in search of a creative outlet for Anna who had taken dance lessons and had been to musical theatre summer camps. She came upon a call for auditions for a Suzart production. Anna tried out and was successful, performing in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oliverâ&#x20AC;? in December 2007. Since this was community theatre, there was a need for help behind the scenes and Mr. Seguin stepped forward to help with set construction. While used to installing drywall and doing home renovations, theatrical set construction was a new experience for him. But for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oliver,â&#x20AC;? he built a knife grinder cart using wood and Styrofoam. Being involved with Suzart Productions proved beneficial for daughter Anna in other ways than performing. It provided motivation for her to get her homework done since she would have rehearsals on the weekends and knew that things had to be done on time to work in everything. Because of his positive impact on Anna, Mr. and Mrs. Seguin decided to let her stay on with Suzart. Her involvement since â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oliverâ&#x20AC;? has ranged from chorus member to assistant costume designer to set construction. She is now also Youth Director for Suzart. In this position, she helps all of the children involved with Suzart put on their own individual shows. Annaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to hard work and her positive attitude has not gone unnoticed by Suzartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic director Susan Dacey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna has always been a cheerful and willing participant in all aspects of Suzart, not just performing,â&#x20AC;? Ms. Dacey says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first name off my tongue at rehearsal or at camp when I need help with anything is Anna.â&#x20AC;? Since his initial involvement in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oliver,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Seguin has served as master carpenter, canteen fundraiser and actor in other shows. Acting was not something that he had envisioned but his fun disposition off set and his singing talents at Suzart fundraisers led to his being cast as the character â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lumiereâ&#x20AC;? in Suzartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beastâ&#x20AC;? last December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marc always does whatever job needs to be done, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setting out chairs, running the fundraising canteen or stepping in to an unexpected leading role,â&#x20AC;? says Ms. Dacey. Mrs. Seguinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer involvement with Suzart started with set construction and progressed to makeup design. But since high

school she had always wanted to try directing. When she voiced this long-held desire to become a director to Ms. Dacey, the response was positive and she became an apprentice director for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? in December 2008. She loved it and a year later, she helped Ms. Dacey director â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beast.â&#x20AC;? Now she is directing the upcoming â&#x20AC;&#x153;Willy Wonkaâ&#x20AC;? production. Alinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement with Suzart started with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beast.â&#x20AC;? There was a need for a musical director and Alinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience teaching private instrumental music lessons and also minoring in music at the University of Ottawa made her the obvious choice. It took some coaxing to convince her that she could do the job but she has since gone on to be musical director for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oklahomaâ&#x20AC;? and now â&#x20AC;&#x153;Willy Wonka.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I forgot how much I missed it,â&#x20AC;? says Alina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You kind of get busy, you do work and you do life. I forgot how much I actually missed being in a pit with a band and being part of something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really rewarding. So in that respect, I loved doing the shows.â&#x20AC;? Alinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work as musical director has not gone unnoticed by Ms. Dacey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has a great way of working with full casts and getting them to sing multiple harmonies,â&#x20AC;? Ms. Dacey says about Alina. The upcoming musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Willy Wonkaâ&#x20AC;? in which all four members of the Seguin family are involved is a musical adaptation of a story of a poor boy named Charlie Bucket who tries to win a lottery ticket that will give him the chance to tour the magical chocolate factory of Willy Wonka. There are laughs and surprise turns throughout the musical as Charlie must join four other children who also won the tour. As director, Mrs. Seguin feels that Suzartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adaptation of the musical will work because of the fun script and the talent of the cast Anna agrees with her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment of the talent of the cast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is really strong,â&#x20AC;? she says, noting that showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choreography and other assets. Mr. Seguin is also a fan of the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m enjoying the script and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m enjoying the people attempting to put this thing together,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a funny show.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Willy Wonkaâ&#x20AC;? will be taking place at St. Paul High School on Draper Avenue off Baseline Road just west of Pinecrest/Greenbank Road on Friday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $18 for seniors and students and $13 for children under 12.

Better website still SVA challenge

Stittsville News 430399

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF An improved website presence remains a challenge for the Stittsville Village Association (SVA). This was one area in need of improvement that was identified by outgoing SVA president Metin Akgun in his president’s report at the SVA’s recent annual general meeting. “Our website could be better than it is,” he said, commenting that a lack of resources does not allow the SVA to do what it would like to do with regard to its website. His report outlined that while the SVA has tried to keep its website up to date, efforts to do this was “rather spotty.” He said that the issue is not a technical one but rather a matter of entering and deleting information on the website on a continuous basis. “This issue is still an outstanding matter,” he wrote in his report. In his report, though, he did praise the SVA’s annual community events in the past year, calling them a success and noting that they were appreciated by Stittsville residents. “It is not an exaggeration to say that the events in the past year were the best we have staged so far,” he wrote in his report. He noted that the annual Artists and authors in the Park event at Village Square attracted its largest turnout of artists and authors in 2010. He noted that Stittsville youth through the Youth Connexion program were involved this year, with their participation showing the talent which youth have in art, sculpture and other creative pursuits. Other events during the past year were Canada Day 2010 celebration with its spectacular fireworks display, Villagefest and its Soap Box Derby, the 2009 Parade of Lights and Winterfest which was held at the Ralph Street Park at the end of February.

Terms of Reference OK The environmental assessment for the proposed expansion of the Carp Road landfill site should now be getting underway in earnest. This follows approval of the draft Terms of Refer-


ence submitted by Waste Management for the expansion which involves creation of the West Carleton Environmental Centre including a new landfill. The Ontario Minister of the Environment approved the submitted Terms of Reference on Thursday, Nov. 25. The Terms of Reference as approved can be viewed on the website Documents/wcec_notice_of_approval.pdf City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri has expressed disappointment with the decision by the Minister to approve the Terms of Reference for the environmental assessment of the proposal. He pledged to continue to fight for the implementation of new waste handling technologies and against what he terms “the outdated, ancient practice of burying waste.”

Rainbow of art on gallery walls The walls of the gallery space at Art Mad at the Stittsville Shopping Plaza were a rainbow of art last Saturday. It was the end-of-fall show of art work done by the young artists who take courses at Art Mad. And the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow was the exhilarating feeling experienced by all those who visited the show and viewed the art. “It’s like a treasure trove of colour and creativity,” said Maggie Madden who operates Art Mad with her husband, John. The artwork on display demonstrated

not only the progression of instruction in Art Mad’s ten week introductory courses but also showed a variety of styles and techniques, ranging from pen and ink drawings to watercolours to acrylic painting to tempera painting to still life work to collages. The Art Mad instruction courses for youth are delivered by three instructors, Kala Ritchie, Rebecca Pilon and Fiona Knight-Gagne. Rebecca Pilon, one of these instructors, said that the most difficult thing in instructing young artists is in getting them to be patient with their painting. She noted that young artists like doing things that take only a few minutes but that they

must realize that good art does take time to do properly. The show had a display which showed with art examples what is covered in the ten week youth introductory art course. This goes from still life to pencil art to learning about perspective to etching to paints. Rebecca, who is a grade 12 student, hopes to pursue a fine arts program in university in the future. Art Mad had the art work of over 40 children and youth on display in this endJOHN CURRY PHOTO of-fall art show.

Stittsville News - DECEMBER 02, 2010



Graveyards prove most popular subject in contest 7 Manure Spreader which sat in a woodlot for decades. Indeed, the winning photo shows it sitting in its treed surroundings, abandoned. Keith, though, did recover the manure spreader from the woodlot this year and after painting its sides and its iron wheels entered it in the Richmond Fair parade. Getting it to and from the Fair parade from the Hobbs’ family Mansfield Road farm proved to be an adventure and while the wheels stayed on despite their extended stay in the woodlot, a wheel did stop turning twice enroute and required some emergency measures to get it working again. The photo of this old manure spreader in the woodlot was, surprisingly, not the only photo of it entered in the contest. There was also a photo of it entered by John Bottriell, also in the Antiques category, taken after it had been in the Richmond Fair parade with its painted sides and wheels. But it was the woodlot photo which captured the eye of judge John Brummell and earned “Best in Show” honours. The Antiques from Attics or Sheds category winner was a photo of wagon wheels entered by David Sutton. Other winners were Josh Jefferies in the Historical Goulbourn Buildings category for his photo of the Stittsville arena; Kelly Moore in the Good Fences Make Good Neighbours category for her

photo of a sumac covered fence on the Carp Road; John Bottriell in the Old Roads and Trails category for his photo of the Faulkner Trail; Kelly Moore, for a second time, in the Then and Now category for her photo of the stone Munster schoolhouse; and Jill Carty in the Grave Matters category for her photo of a Hands family headstone in the old Anglican Church cemetery on Young Road in what is now Kanata but was Goulbourn’s Hazeldean. Each of the winners received a prize from the Goulbourn Township Historical Society as well as a certificate from city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. In his comments at the presentation ceremony, councillor Qadri thanked the Historical Society for organizing this Heritage Photo Contest which ran through much of the year. He also congratulated all those who entered the contest, praising them for their participation and for taking the time to learn some of the history of the Goulbourn community. Earlier in the day, he had attended the launch of the “Jumpstart I Love To Skate” program providing financially disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to learn to skate, commenting that helping young people in this way is a way to build community. He compared this to the Heritage

Photo Contest, commenting that such a photo contest is a way to remember a community. Judge John Brummell, in his remarks at the ceremony, thanked those who entered. “It was very difficult,” he said in regard to the judging, not only because the photography dealt with objects rather than people but also because today’s digital photogra-

phy provides a lot of advantages to the photographer. “Judging is always individualistic,” he said in explaining his choices.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF The inaugural Heritage Photo Contest this year sponsored by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society attracted nearly 50 entries. There were submissions of historical buildings, fences, roads and antiques but the category which drew the most entries was one that almost wasn’t included in the contest – graveyards. “It was the most popular category,” said Historical Society Board member Lee Boltwood as she announced the winners at a brief ceremony in the lobby of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex last Saturday, while also commenting that the category was almost not included in the contest. Not only did the “Grave Matters” category attract more entries, 12, than any other but also the submissions included a lot of documentation about the scene photographed. Ms. Boltwood said that the Historical Society really appreciates all the effort that went into this since such documentation really makes a difference to the Historical Society with its historical mandate. Of course, documentation was not restricted to the “Grave Matters” category. The “Best in Show” entry, a photo entered by Keith Hobbs in the Antiques from Attic or Sheds category, included information about the 1933 Massey-Harris No.

Th e

Here comes ‘Fill the Bus’

Stittsville News - DECEMBER 02, 2010


SPECIAL TO THE NEWS “Fill the Bus” time is coming up again in Stittsville. No, it has nothing to do with riders and commuting. Rather, it has everything to do with helping out those in need in the community. This is a Stittsville Food Bank initiative in which an OC Transpo bus is parked all day long in front of Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville, collecting donations of food and also cash to help out those who need assistance at this holiday time of the year. “Fill the Bus” day will be this coming Saturday, Dec. 4. Previous “Fill the Bus” campaigns by the Stittsville Food Bank have proven to be extremely important. Indeed, the “Fill the Bus” program is now an important component in the Food Bank’s program as it tries to meet the growing demand with which it is faced. Any donations that can be provided to help

“fill up” the bus will be most appreciated by the Food Bank. All of the food items and cash donated in this “Fill the Bus” campaign on Dec. 4 go to help in the local community. The Stittsville Food Bank is a volunteer run, registered charity serving the communities of Stittsville and Ashton. Monetary donations are gratefully accepted at any time and can be sent to the Stittsville Food Bank, P.O. Box 878, Stittsville, Ont. K2S 1B1. A tax receipt will be issued for such donations. Regular food donations can be made at the bins at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer or at Giant Tiger or at city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri’s office at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. The Stittsville Food Bank can be reached by leaving a voice message at 613831-0451. The website can be found at www.

Christmas hamper program

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The Stittsville Food Bank is offering its Christmas hamper program again this Christmas. This program, which is available for registered clients of the Stittsville Food Bank, means that clients can pick up hampers featuring all of the seasonal trimmings a few days before Christmas. These hampers are possible thanks to cash donations from members of the local community. In addition, local churches have set up Angel Trees so that gifts can be donated and distributed by the Stitts-

ville Food Bank to hamper recipients who have children. Clients must register for this Christmas hamper program by filling out a registration form that is available at the Stittsville Food Bank each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The deadline for registration is Monday, Dec. 13. Any questions should be directed to 613-831-0451. “We are pleased to be able to continue to offer the Christmas hamper program,” said Robin Derrick, chair of the Stittsville Food Bank. “It is only through the generous nature of our community that this is possible.”

When in doubt, don’t throw it out Our homes are filled with many municipal hazardous or special waste (MHSW) materials that need extra care when they’ve reached the end of their useful lives — things like paints, batteries and pharmaceuticals. Throwing them in the garbage or pouring them down the drain can be dangerous to our families and our environment. That’s why we’re encouraging Ontarians to follow the BUD rule:

Buy only what you need Use it all up Drop off the rest and we’ll recycle, reprocess or safely dispose of it These materials can be taken to local Orange Drop collection events, municipal recycling depots or retail drop zones.

Stittsville News - DECEMBER 02, 2010


Richmond’s Santa Claus Parade The Santa Claus Parade in Richmond this Saturday, Dec. 4 is a great spectacle which will help get people in the mood for Christmas. But it is also an opportunity where people can help some of the less fortunate in the community. As in previous years, members of the Richmond District Lions Club will be collecting items for the Richmond Food Bank along the parade route. These donated items will help the Food Bank meet the need over the holiday period. Besides collecting items

for the Richmond Food Bank, the parade will also be a vehicle for the collection of new unwrapped toys for Toy Mountain. Toys will be collected along the parade route that will go to the Salvation Army for distribution to less fortunate children in the Ottawa area. So, when you attend to watch the Santa Claus Parade, come armed with a donation for the Richmond Food Bank and also a toy for Toy Mountain. It will be Christmas spirit in action. The Santa Claus Parade will leave from South Carleton High School at 11 a.m. this Saturday, Dec. 4, heading north along McBean

Street to Perth Street where it will turn west and finish up at the Richmond Plaza. There will be chili available at “Santa’s Café” at the plaza along with hot chocolate and children will have an opportunity to visit with Santa Claus. This Santa Claus Parade is, of course, only half of a Christmas doubleheader in the village this Saturday, Dec. 4. At 6 p.m., the annual Lighting of the Park ceremony will take place at Memorial Park. The Christmas lights will be turned on at the park for the first time, officially launching the Christmas season in Richmond.

Rash of thefts in Richmond personal identification was stolen out of an unlocked vehicle and a Garmin GPS unit was taken from another unlocked vehicle. Sometime on the same night, also on Oradea Crescent, a pickup truck was stolen from a laneway. That same overnight period saw a commercial trailer stolen from a vehicle storage yard on Perth Street. This stealing spree did not stop there. Sometime that same night, in the mid-evening period, about ten John Deere snow blowers were stolen from a gated storage area at the Green Tech AG Turf Company on Perth Street in Richmond.


SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Thieves have been out and about in Richmond recently. And it’s been more than just stealing from unlocked vehicles. There have been some incidents involving unlocked vehicles, however. Sometime overnight recently, a thief rummaged through an unlocked vehicle on Mary Hill Crescent in Richmond and stole a GPS Garmin Guvi unit. Just after midnight recently on Oradea Crescent in Richmond, an unidentified male was seen running from a laneway towards a black minivan being driven by another male. It was discovered that a wallet containing
