News - Stittsville Cubs and Scouts again this year have had a blast – literally. And, for the first time ever, Guides got to share in the thrill of it all. This all happened over a two week-plus period as the Scouts, Cubs and, for the first time ever, the 2nd Stittsville Guides, participated in rocket nights. This involved launching small rockets high into the sky, once again this year in the field across from the former Flea Market location on Hazeldean Road. This tradition began at least a decade ago when Stittsville Scout leader Kevin Chap-

pell invited a member of the Ottawa Rocket Club out to Stittsville to show his Cub and Scout youth about rockets and have the Cubs and Scouts make some simple rockets to launch as well. Well, Scouter Kevin and the Cubs and Scouts were fascinated by the flaming launch, the rocket speed, the trailing smoke and the “whooshing noise” of the rockets as they blasted off and soared upward. It was a hit with everyone! More rocket nights had to be held. Scouter Kevin was, though, concerned about the slowness in launching the rockets individually on a single stand rocket launch pad. To make the process quicker and to increase safety, he built a multi-launch saw-

horse mounted apparatus that allowed several rockets (initially four and later six) to be set up and remotely fired from a second sawhorse control panel. Thanks to this multi-launch pad, a whole section of Scouts could launch rockets in one evening, with everyone being able to launch twice, using more powerful motors for the second launch. Kevin even fired off his own larger rockets in-between Scout launches, with Beaver youth doing the launching. A few years ago, Kevin rebuilt all of the launching and control systems, creating two lighter-weight units that allowed for single or multiple launching. See ROCKETS, page 6

Zakari Frantz Trio performs at Gaia Java shop John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

News - You only had to experience the first song played by the Zakari Frantz Trio at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville at its music evening last Friday to know that you were in for a special night. This first song was a seven minute long version of the song “Two Degrees North, Three Degrees West” which is usually associated with American jazz clarinet and saxophone player, composter and arranger Jimmy Giuffre who was notable for developing forms of jazz which allowed for the free interplay between the musicians. And this Giuffre-like free improvisation was in evidence not only with this opening song but all through the musical offerings of the Zakari Frantz Trio on this particular night. It seemed like sitting in on a jazz session, the

way that these three polished and talented musicians played off of each other, seemingly knowing just where the tune was going. It seemed to be free improvisation at its best. And what is surprising is that saxophone player Zakari Frantz and drummer Matt Aston had not played together for at least a year. And yet there they were, following each other’s leads, just like an old married couple can finish each other’s sentences – that how well they know each other musically. This is how it was with Zakari and drummer Matt and also with bass player Joe Hincke who has played with Zakari for the last couple of years. The initial Jimmy Giuffre song was followed up with “Body and Soul,” a jazz classic recorded over the years by such voices as Tony Bennett, Amy Winehouse and Billie Holiday. This was a slower and more mellow piece that again saw

an interplay between the trio members which went on for ten minutes. And on it went. Indeed, the Ben Gatien musical artwork which lines one wall of the Gaia Java shop includes two paintings that feature saxophone players. But Zakari Frantz’ performance on the real thing showed that while a saxophone in a painting may have an appealing look, it is the sound that makes a saxophone such an engaging and mesmerizing instrument and Zakari produces this sound. And when added to the background and companion music of Matt Aston’s drums and Joe Hincke’s bass, you are transported to a musical heaven – in this case and on this particular night, one with jazz leanings. At the end of the first half of the performance, Zakari himself noted that musicians of the caliber of Matt Aston and Joe Hincke cannot often be found playing for free at a Stittsville coffee shop. He himself lives in Stittsville but he said that Matt and Joe were probably pulled away from gigs downtown to make the trip to Stittsville to play with him that evening. Zakari Frantz had just recently performed at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield before this Gaia Java shop appearance. He has recently re-

turned from a European tour with the Souljazz Orchestra of Ottawa, a group which has just put out its sixth studio album. Its previous two albums were both nominated for Juno awards, so you know that this group is one of Canada’s best. It has toured across Canada as well as in the United States. In recent years, it has been under contract to London-based Strut Records, a United Kingdom label that focuses on dance music and the afrobeat. Besides performing with the Souljazz Orchestra, Zakari plays with the resident quartet at Les Lundis Jazz in Gatineau and also teaches music. The Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street holds a music evening every Friday at which various performers, either individuals or groups, perform. Missy Burgess and Vince Halfhide will be performing folk songs and original tunes at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java shop this coming Friday, May 23. These Friday music evenings get underway at 7 p.m. and there is free admission, although early arrival is recommended for the best seating.

You can learn about its co-op program that allows a student to gain workplace experience while attaining a credit on the way to graduation. It is in this co-op program that students have a chance to “test drive” a career or it may even be related to a job that the student is already holding down outside of school. Exposure to the workplace helps Banting students learn life skills, develop their communication skills and practice other valuable workplace traits such as punctuality. Frederick Banting Alternate Program, by the way, is always on the lookout for businesses in the community which would like to be a partner in the school’s co-op program. You will be able to discuss these possibilities at the open house. A highlight of the open house will be the school’s art show which will be taking place during the open house.

Renowned Noffke buildings featured during Doors Open Ottawa 2014 By Jenna Guilbeault

Werner Ernst Noffke (1878–1964) was once a household name in Ottawa, but today he is largely unknown to those who are unfamiliar with our city’s architectural history. A German native, he was one of Ottawa’s most influential architects, and several of his buildings will be featured in Doors Open Ottawa 2014, a free event that celebrates the capital’s historically, functionally, culturally and architecturally significant buildings. Noffke’s interest in architecture developed when he was a young boy, and by the age of 14 he was an apprentice to local architect Adam Harvey, who was also of German decent. As his passion for architecture grew, Noffke went on to study at the Fine Arts Association of Ottawa. By 1904, he would celebrate his first independently constructed building, which became his own home. The oldest of five Noffke buildings participating in this year’s event was constructed in 1910 and is located at 534 Queen Elizabeth Drive. Currently, it is the official residence of the Greek Ambassador to Canada, but it was built for lawyer and Liberal Party organizer Andrew Haydon and was known as Haydon House. This marks the embassy’s first year in Doors Open Ottawa. Also featured for the first time is Powell House, built in 1913 for William Powell, who developed houses for the upper-middle classes in the Glebe before the First World

War. Located at 85 Glebe Avenue, it is now the Embassy of Vietnam to Canada and is referred to as Vietnam House. Shannon Ricketts, author of Werner Ernst Noffke: Ottawa’s Architect, said “Powell House is one of the largest and most elaborate of his favorite style – the Spanish colonial revival – a style for which Noffke was well known in Ottawa.” Other buildings that will be featured in this year’s Doors Open Ottawa include the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia to Canada, which was renovated by Noffke in 1917 and 1922; the Mercury Court Building, which received additions designed by Noffke in 1930; Mother House Chapel of the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa, built in 1936 by Noffke, Lucien Leblanc, and general contractor Henri Dagenais; and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, renovated by Noffke in 1948. This year’s Doors Open Ottawa will feature 130 buildings, many of which are not normally open to the public, including 20 that are new to the program or that have not been able to participate in over five years. History and architecture are at the heart of this event, and Noffke’s buildings have a big part in telling the city’s story. “Many of Noffke’s grand homes are perfect residences for embassies, because they offer such splendid spaces for entertaining and great detail in the staircases and woodwork,” states Ricketts.

Rockets launched Continued from page 1

A total of eight rockets can now be launched at one time if desired. In addition, the new launch controls have additional safety features that give an even greater degree of safety to the whole exercise. Bulk packs of simple-to-assemble small rockets can be purchased and then built in a Scout meeting or at home. Motors can also be purchased in bulk. These rockets and motors are purchased in advance by Kevin and then supplied at cost to the participating Cubs, Scouts and, this year, Guides. This year, the schedule called for Scouts to launch on Monday, April 28 while Cub Packs launched on Tuesday, April 29, Wednesday, May 7, Thursday, May 8 and Monday, May 12. The first-ever Girl Guide rocket night was held on Wednesday, May 14. The first Girl Guide unit to take up the challenge was the 2nd Stittsville Guides and as Guider Angie Wallace observed, the girls had a “blast” doing it. Kevin is often helped at these rocket launch nights by his daughter Colleen who went through Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers and who now helps out her father by taking care of all of the launching preparations and procedures.

No roundabouts for Carp Road Special to the News

News - Goodbye rounadabouts. Hello traffic signals. A reconstructed and widened Carp Road between Hazeldean Road and highway 417 is undergoing a revision of its first design which featured roundabouts at intersections along this stretch of road. It was because of public input received at and following a public open house about the project last February that the study team went back to the drawing board. The study team re-evaluated alternative designs, placing a greater emphasis on providing for adjacent site access and on minimizing property acquisition. This re-evaluation has seen the study team come up with a proposed design that includes signalized intersections with left turn lanes at Westbrook Road, RothGUIDER ANGIE PHOTO bourne Road and the Kittiwake Drive/EchoStittsville Guides Kiera Fortier, left, and Megan Babcock, right, gather up their rockets woods Avenue intersection as well as a central after they parachuted back to ground following their launch at the Guides rocket launch two way left turn lane in some locations along the road, intermittent mid-black raised medians event on Wednesday, May 14. to provide positive guidance to motorists and multi-use pathways on both sides of the road. In addition, there will be a two way left turn lane at Lloydalex Crescent with provisions made for possible future signalization at the intersection. These changes arose when public input from the February open house and subsequently saw many residents and business owners along this section of the Carp Road express concern that the proposed roundabouts would be detrimental and would be too drastic a change to how individual properties are presently accessed. In addition, the property requirements at intersections to allow for installation of the roundabouts was also provided as a concern. These comments were in response to a proposal put forward by the study team that includ-

ed roundabouts at Kittiwake Drive/Echowoods Avenue, Rothbourne Road and Westbrook Road with a 1.5 metre raise median running between the roundabouts. The proposed new design featuring signalized intersections means that there are less opportunities for greening this section of Carp Road and that some properties near the signalized intersections will have to have right in/right out access only. In the long term, growing traffic volumes may mean that a raise median will have to be installed, eliminating the two way left turn lane areas along the road. If this happens, then individual site access along Carp Road would be restricted to right in/right out movements. The city of Ottawa is currently doing a Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment Study to determine the most appropriate way to accommodate the increasing traffic along this section of Carp Road. The city’s Transportation Master Plan identifies the need to widen this section of Carp Road from two lanes to four lanes sometime between the year 2020 and the year 2025. This Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment Study began in June 2013 with two open houses having been held to provide information on the study. There has also been input received from business and public consultation groups and from meetings with individual landowners along the Carp Road. The study team is now going to be meeting with consultation groups prior to a third and final public open house in mid-June at which time a recommended plan for Carp Road will be presented.

It sure beats the snow

A

fter a long, cold winter, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing the people of this city would enjoy more than a heatwave. For what felt like an eternity, Ottawa, and much of the rest of North America for that matter, sat trapped in a semi-glacial state. Nearly all of the Great Lakes froze over. There was snow on the ground almost everywhere in the United States at one point. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had heavy snowfalls in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can forget the winter of 2007-08 when more than 400 centimetres of fluffy white stuff fell on the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it was the combination of snow and bonechilling cold that made the winter of 2013-14 among the most unbearable in recent memory. The depressing thing is things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get much better any time soon. Unfortunately weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at a wet spring and some long-range forecasts suggest a cooler-than-average summer. The spring thaw and rains that pumped up local rivers and streams have passed with minimal flooding, but it seems like the showers will never stop. Such is late spring in Ottawa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all bad news though. Rain may be a pain, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary part of the year for everything we get to harvest this summer and fall. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a farmer or growing backyard veggies,

surely we can all agree rain is better than snow. And better that we get the daily showers out of the way before the outdoor festival season gets underway across our city. Events like Ottawa Bluesfest, the Jazz Festival, Folkfest, Canada Day, Race Day and upcoming football and soccer games at Lansdowne Park are much more enjoyable on bright sunny days and warm evenings than when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overcast and damp. Yet the rain will be great for those who got out over the Victoria Day weekend to fill their gardens full of annuals, perennials and vegetables. Better yet, if the heat is toned down a little bit, the lack of scorching heat will only benefit most of those plants and save gardeners from going through litres upon litres of water on a daily basis just to keep the flowers perky and crops alive. This goes for local farmers, too, who bring their bounty to the tables at farmers markets across the city. Just the right amount of rain and warmth, but not oppressively hot, days will help them make the most of their efforts. Weather is an obsession with we Canadians, and it never seems to be perfect for anyone. But it always helps to take a wider look at these trends and see the good in what would otherwise be a dreary spring.

Bring back the guy with the cigar

A

s we find out every day, the Internet giveth and the Internet taketh away. The incredible convenience of doing things online is matched by the incredible inconvenience caused by what others do online. And this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even count what spending all your time online does to your waistline. The latest event to bring this to our attention is a minor crisis at Centrepointe Theatre where some ticket buyers wound up paying inflated prices to a ticket reseller. The theatre will honour the tickets, even though they were purchased from an unauthorized outlet. In all likelihood the buyers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the outlet was unauthorized, since all ticket resellers look quite respectable, even official, when they show up in a Google search. According to a Centrepointe official quoted in the Ottawa Citizen, about 50 per cent of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tickets are sold online. What happens then is unclear. Do ticket resellers jump in and snap up tickets and sell them for more than they are worth? Or do individual buyers, because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend, perhaps because they want to make a little extra cash, offer up their seats through ticket resellers? Whichever it is, the results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all good.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town While some laud the reselling system for making it possible for people to attend events for which tickets are scarce, others blame the system itself for creating the scarcity of tickets. And there is the further problem of phony tickets. The immediate impulse of many people is to demand that government do something to stop this. The problem is that governments already have. Across Canada, including Ontario, governments have put in place rules to prevent reselling at more than face value. But, of course, resellers operating out of the U.S., which was the case in the Centrepointe incident, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about Ontario law. And the laws donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have put an end to the ticket reselling business, which carries on. Just do a search on tickets for any

upcoming event in Ottawa and see what pops up. Despite a law against selling at inflated value, there must still be money in the reselling biz. Is this a problem? Depends on how you look at it. There are two issues: one is price, the other is availability. Provincial laws deal mainly with the first. The second is tougher. Those who remember the pre-computer days, remember lining up at 5 a.m. or trying desperately to get through on the phone to the box office on the day tickets to a big event went on sale. In the early computer days, the wait was to connect online to the box office the instant the box office opened. That still happens, but it appears in some instances that the resellers somehow get there first, snapping up tickets and frustrating the public. A lot of people just learn to live with this. They trudge off, electronically, to the reseller and get their tickets. Those that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know their way around have to do without, as do those who have an aversion to what they think of as computerized scalping. Some of them would sooner pay the extra dollars to the old-time scalper, the guy with the cigar whispering outside the arena. At least he seems like a small businessman.

For the moment, it appears that government isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the answer. Is the answer to ask large entertainment venues not to sell online? Imagine how that would go over. Even for older generations, using online to purchase tickets has become a habit. Could tickets be made non-transferable? Combining tickets with I.D. has been tried in various places. But what about the person who has genuine reasons for not being able to attend and needs to get rid of his ticket? Fixing this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be easy. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small consolation to know that, in some respects, we have ourselves to blame.

Robb Nash brings message of strength to students John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

R0012704842

News - A recovery from a vehicle accident in which had been deemed dead but came back to life. Miraculous. Walking away from a recording contract so that he could deliver his performance message at schools, detention centres, First Nations communities and other venues. Awesome. And delivering a message of optimism and strength at these venues that has seen 207 suicide notes and stacks of self-harm razor blades turned over to him by some of those who heard his message delivered in story and song at these performances. Priceless. But this is the story of entertainer Robb Nash who with his drum partner Jonny Holliday presents 150 shows a year across Canada, speaking to over 50,000 students directly and touching another 500,000 through mediums like Facebook and YouTube. He performed in the gymnasium at Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville on Thursday morning, May 15, taking the stage before an audience not only of Banting students but also students from another Alternate Program and a group from South Carleton High School. The concert involved not only songs performed by Robb Nash and complimented by images and words on a screen set up on stage but also featured stories told by Robb, not only about his own accident and its repercussions but also about each of the songs. In addition, Robb delivered a message of inspiration to the youthful audience, urging them to make changes in themselves and in the world around them. Having experienced the pain and anger from his own debilitating accident, Robb Nash told

the audience that he realizes that the pain of such negative experiences does not go away but he reminded everyone that neither does your strength to overcome such pain and make a difference in the world. He told how his miraculous return from the dead in his vehicle accident gave him a second change at life. After he recovered not only from the physical impacts of the accident but also from its emotional and mental impacts such as anger, Robb came to realize that he wanted to help others. That’s when he walked away from his commercially successful recording career in which he had songs in Canada’s top ten listings and decided to use his musical talents as a platform from which to influence and motivate young people. And not just any young people but youth who were looking for guidance in dealing with issues such as drug and alcohol addiction, bullying, self-harm, depression and suicide. He tries to inspire youth to stay hopeful, recognize their unique strengths and make positive choices. He delivers this message not only in schools but in detention centres, in First Nations communities and other venues. At the Banting concert, Robb Nash told about his accident when as a joy riding 17 year old, a head-on crash saw him believed to be dead with no pulse, no breathing and a damaged skull. But somehow he came back to life, his skull was repaired with metal and eventually three months later he woke up from his coma. Gone was his dream of a life in sports. His injuries made him feel useless but he turned his anger and bitterness around, deciding to turn his tragedy into a situation where he could help others.

When his record company would not support his vision of taking his message of hope and resilience to youth through his music, he ripped up his record deal and started off performing at schools, eventually joined by drummer Jonny Holiday. He sang several songs at the Banting concert, explaining the genesis of each other, such as his “One Last Breath” song written a year after his accident in response to nightmares that no one would show up at his funeral. Another of his song, “Shadows,” told how a youth was performing with him in front of thousands just ten months after lying across a set of train tracks, ready to commit suicide. Robb commented that those who feel suicidal have the power in them to see others who are hurting like themselves and that they can use this power positively to help other people.

He urged youth who are going through what he termed “hell” to use inner strength to get through it and then tell their story to others to help change the lives of others. Robb Nash himself does not charge schools for his concerts. Costs are covered through sponsorships. Indeed, Robb Nash’s initiative had touched many such as the couple who purchased him a tour bus and such as the airline company which came forward and provides him with transportation to his northern gigs. One highlight of Robb Nash’s concert at the Banting school happened when he invited Banting student Lana Smith up on stage to sing a song with him. Applause followed their joint performance. After the one hour and 15 minute performance, Robb Nash met with students, exchanging hugs and posing for cell phone photos.

Stittsville Lions hear about The War Amps Special to the News

News - The War Amps was front and centre at the Stittsville District Lions Club meeting on Wednesday evening, May 14 at the Lions Hall in Stittsville.

James Jordan, who is a safety coordinator with The War Amps, was the guest speaker at the meeting. He not only told about the origins of The War Amps and the services that the organization provides but also dem-

onstrated the prosthetic devices that help him lead an active life despite being born without the lower portion of his left arm. The War Amps is a registered charitable organization operated un-

At the presentation of a $500 donation to The War Amps at the Stittsville District Lions Club’s meeting on Wednesday, May 14 are, from left, Stittsville District Lions Club members Ed Meunier and Paul Riddell, James Jordan of The War Amps who is accepting the giant cheque, Stittsville District Lions Club president Beth Lewis who is presenting the cheque, and Stittsville District Lions Club member Jack Burke.

der the direction of war amputees. It began after the First World War to provide assistance to amputees returning from the war. In 1946, The War Amps key tag service was launched. This tag, when attached to a set of keys, will ensure that the keys, if lost, will be returned to the owner if the finder calls a 1800 number on the tag or drops the keys and attached tag into any mailbox. The key tag service, though, not only provides this important service to Canadians but also provides employment at competitive wages for war amputees. The War Amps address label service was introduced in 1972 while The War Amps child amputee program (CHAMP) began in 1975. This program covers 100 percent of the costs for artificial limbs for children under the age of 18 years. For those over 18 years of age, the provincial government pays approximately $10,000 for the costs of an artificial limb with The War Amps covering any additional costs above this amount. Other services which The War Amps provides include its Playsafe Program, the National Amputee Centre, the National Service Bureau and Operation Legacy. While The War Amps has changed and improved over the years, The War Amps has also adhered to its policy of providing employment through its services to Canadian amputees. The War Amps provides its programs solely through donations from the public to the key tag service and to the address label service. The War Amps does not receive any govern-

ment funding. Mr. Jordan, in his presentation, stressed that a person does not have to contribute to The War Amps to benefit from the key return service. Keys will be returned to their owner if The War Amps key tag is attached no matter whether the person contributed to the organization or not. Mr. Jordan also demonstrated the prosthetic devices that he uses as a replacement for the missing portion of his left arm. One device allows him to do push ups while another attachment allows him to grip a pen between his thumb and forefinger. Yet another attachment allows him to grip a hockey stick and play hockey which is his favourite sport. He told how in his early years in hockey, he was unable to raise the puck when he shot. He overcame this by spending two hours a day in his laneway after school until he had mastered the ability to raise the puck. He said that determination is everything and that a person can overcome a disability if he or she is willing to put in the effort. He said that this is a lesson that is taught in The War Amps’ CHAMP program dealing with adaptive behaviour. A philosophy of “amputees helping amputees” has been the hallmark of The War Amps since the organziation was founded. Counselling, selfhelp and practical assistance along with preserving Canada’s military heritage are themes that run through The War Amps programs and actions.

GMS Dreamcatchers John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

News - A group of students at Goulbourn Middle School is out to make a difference despite their youth. The 13 students of the grade seven gifted class at the school have created the GMS Dreamcatchers, a newly formed fundraising organization that has the goal of raising $3,000 for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission To A Million,â&#x20AC;? the campaign spearheaded by fellow Goulbourn Middle School student and Stittsville resident Tysen Lefebvre to raise one million dollars for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. This is all part of a class project which involves BMO (Bank of Montreal) and is focused on the students creating an organization as they learn more about the world of business. The students have been working with a mentor from BMO since January in learning how to set up an organization and how to present themselves in seeking partners and sponsors for their project. The students decided that they would set up an organization to do fundraising and hence the GMS Dreamcatch-

ers was formed. And once it was decided that the students would establish a fundraising organization, choosing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission To A Millionâ&#x20AC;? and Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario as the recipients of the fundraising was something of a no-brainer. Everyone was thinking about Tysen and his campaign, Katie Chen, one of the co-Chief Executive Officers of GMS Dreamcatchers says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really inspirational.â&#x20AC;? Co-Chief Executive Officer Areena Akhter said that having Tysen and his campaign as the recipients of the fundraising done by GMS Dreamcatchers makes it a lot more personal for the students and also a lot easier for the students to be passionate about what they are doing since it is to help a fellow student. Already the GMS Dreamcatchers have done several small fundraising events at the school. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a smoothies bar which raised $300. A basket raffle held in conjunction with a cake walk at the school raised another $300. In addition, GMS Dreamcatchers is selling Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission To A Million t-shirts, bracelets and necklaces, raising

more funds. But two major fundraising initiatives are yet to come. The GMS Dreamcatchers have arranged with the new Kiwi Kraze self-service frozen yogurt shop in the Jackson Trails Centre plaza in Stittsville to have a special fundraising afternoon at the shop. It will be happening on Saturday, May 31 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. with a percentage of the sales that are made at

the shop during these afternoon hours going to the GMS Dreamcatchers and their fundraising target. Besides this Kiwi Kraze fundraising, the GMS Dreamcatchers have also partnered with city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri whose annual Park Party and BBQ at Village Square Park in Stittsville, this year slated for Saturday, June 14 from noon to 4 p.m., is this year going to be the GMS Dreamcatchers Park Party and BBQ. It is going to be a youth focused event with a new bicycle pa-

rade to open the event, starting at Sacred Heart High School and ending at the park. In addition, youth from Sacred Heart High School who participated in a program to develop innovative projects will have displays at the Park Party and BBQ on June 14th. It is all part of focusing attention on students and youth while also hopefully raising funds for the GMS Dreamcatchers and their fundraising goal of $3,000. The Park Party and BBQ will also feature fun games, a bouncy castle and hamburgers and candy. But everything will be available free, with donations encouraged. The GMS Dreamcatchers are well aware of the generosity of the Stittsville community and feel that the donations on June 14th will be substantial and a big boost towards reaching the goal of $3,000. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how supportive Stittsville is, co-Chief Executive Officer Areena Akhter says. The GMS Dreamcatchers also have an idea of having some sort of fundraising at Chapters at the Kanata Centrum but no date has yet been set. The GMS Dreamcatchers, with all of this fundraising, want to show that youth can make a difference, no

matter their numbers or their age. The GMS Dreamcatchers have a website at www. gmsdreamcatchers.com. The organization is also on Twitter and Instagram. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission to a Millionâ&#x20AC;? has already raised over $82,000 for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. The granting of one wish costs an average of $10,000. Tysen Lefebvre, who had his own wish of meeting actor Adam Sandler granted, wanted to help others have their wishes granted and so that is why he launched his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission to a Millionâ&#x20AC;? campaign to raise one million dollars for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario so that 100 wishes could be granted. Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario grants the wishes of children with life-threatening or serious medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope and joy. To date, Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario has granted almost 500 wishes of children in the Eastern Ontario Tysen Lefebvre, who is 13 years old and is now a student at Goulbourn Middle School, was born with a rare genetic disorder called Pfeiffer Syndrome and so far in his life, he has had over 26 surgeries, beginning when he was only nine days old.

Rural Clean Water Program Farmers and rural landowners wanting to protect water quality can take advantage of new funding to help them with projects. The Rideau Valley Rural Clean Water Program (RVRCWP) has recently introduced new project categories to its existing grant program. Eligible landowners can receive funding to support up to 90 per cent of project costs and receive grants of up to $7,500. The RVRCWP, a grant and technical assistance program, has been operating since 2002 and has provided nearly $900,000 in funding to over 600 projects across the Rideau Valley Watershed. Its success can be credited to the individual landowners undertaking these great projects, and to the many generous sponsors that have supported the program over the years. New funding categories being introduced in 2014 include Tile Drainage Control Structures, Cover Crops, Manure Storage/Treatment and Land Retirement performance incentives. These categories will supplement existing projects, including Livestock Fencing along waterways, Clean Water Diversion, Nutrient Management Plans, Surface/Wastewater Treatment and Disposal, Well Decommissioning/Upgrades/Replacement and many more. For more information about the program and eligibility, please call the LandOwner Resource Centre at 613-692-3571 ext. 1128 or 1132, or visit www. rvca.ca/programs/rcwp/rvca_rcwp.html. Funding is limited, so interested landowners are encouraged to register promptly. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at Scott.Moffatt@ ottawa.ca or contact me by phone at 613-5802491.

Nighttime fire guts Richmond home Special to the News

News - A fire in the middle of the night last Saturday/Sunday has gutted a two-storey log home in Richmond. The home is located on the west side of Lennox Street right beside the Jock River Park. On the north side of the home is the building which was at one time the Richmond cheese factory and is now a private

residence. The fire is believed to have begun in the gazebo at the rear of the home, spotted by a person in the adjacent Jock River Park. Firefighters were called to the scene about 1:45 a.m. The three people in the house at the time got out safely. The fire spread from the gazebo to the rear of the home and then spread into the

open concept home. Firefighters managed to prevent fire damage to neighbourhood trees and the adjacent home but could not prevent the interior of the home from being gutted. Damage has been estimated at around $450,000 to $500,000. There were no injuries as a result of the fire.

Showcase on May 27th

OSU’s Mollie Eriksson invited to Regional Exceleration Training Centre (REX) Mollie Eriksson’s dream of making the women’s national soccer team (WNT) is one step closer. She was recently invited to participate in the Regional Exceleration Training Centre program (REX), a joint collaboration between the Ontario Soccer Association and the Canadian Soccer Association, aimed at identifying and developing Ontario’s “most talented players” on their path toward the WNT. Mollie, a member of Team Ontario, participated in the pre-REX program this winter, a four month try-out for the full REX. Traveling to Toronto every week was challenging, but well worth the effort. REX is a year-round comprehensive program in which high quality training hours are directed at working on the “right things”. Players are formally assessed and monitored by provincial and national team coaches to ensure they are progressing. REX players also get to train and compete with the “best of the best”. For example, Mollie trains with high-caliber goalkeepers such as Devon Kerr and Rylee Foster, members of the U17 WNT and REX. Mollie began playing soccer at the age of 4. She moved to Ottawa at age 8 and joined OSU as soon as she arrived. Mollie has always wanted to be a goalkeeper and has shown a lot of promise over the years. In 2012, she was selected from over 8000 players for Danone Nations Cup Team Canada, who competed in the 40 world team tournament in Poland. Mollie, the captain for Team Canada, was only 1 of 3 girls to participate in this first-rate tournament for boys. More recently, Mollie and her teammates won the 2013 Ontario Cup that was decided by a penalty kick shootout in which Mollie made 3 critical one-handed diving saves. OSU is very proud of Mollie’s accomplishments and wishes her the best in this next phase of her soccer career. We recognize the amount of hard work she has put into achieving her goals, and the role our coaching staff, in particular Shawn Edward OSU Force Academy Keeper Coach, have played in her development. OSU has partnered with REX in the delivery of technical training for Mollie. We are as committed as Mollie to making her dream of representing Canada a reality.

News -Oon the recent National Day of Honour for Afghanistan, the recently formed Canadian Military Wives Choir sang “Amazing Grace” and “Dona Nobis Pacem” at a special service for the Families of the Fallen in the Senate Chamber on Parliament Hill. This coming Tuesday, May 27 at 7 p.m., these same voices will be presenting a Canadian Military Wives Choir Showcase right here in Stittsville at the Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street. This showcase will be an evening of song in which this choir will showcase some of the songs in its repertoire developed since its inaugural practice at the end of last September. This Canadian Military Wives Choir Showcase will not have tickets but donations will be gratefully received at the event. Half of the proceeds will be given to the Wounded Warrior Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps Canadian Forces members who have been wounded or injured in their service to Canada. Everyone is welcome to attend this showcase on Tuesday, May 27 and enjoy the musical offerings of this recently formed choir. It has a varied musical repertoire but leans more towards modern than classical tunes. The choir rehearses every Tuesday evening in Stittsville, with many of ladies newly posted to the National Capital Region. The choir serves as a support for these newcomers to the area, helping them establish roots in what is yet another new community for them. This new choir is the initiative of Sue Palmer of Stittsville who is president of this Canadian Military Wives Choir. She was a British Army wife for 19 years and until 2013 lived in the United Kingdom where she was part of a very successful Military Wives Choir that was featured in a BBC documentary series, had thousands of members

Biography

www.osu.ca

16 15 YEARS YEARS

across 80 locations, had two albums and performed at virtually every important British event. Indeed, Sue herself sang at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Christmas Day speech in 2012. Last July, Sue’s husband transferred to the Canadian Air Force and they relocated to Stittsville. With her enjoyable choir experience in her mind, she set about to establish a military wives choir here in Stittsville. She found a choir leader and a location, with the first rehearsal in September attracting 14 ladies. Since then, the choir has grown to 32 members and has performed at the Remembrance Day service in Stittsville, the Victory Ball at the Chateau Laurier and live on the CTV morning show. Sue strongly believes in military wives choirs, noting that they provide a support network for military wives. Her dream is that other similar choirs will start up in other locations across Canada and a network of such choirs will be created, much like has happened in the United Kingdom. With such a network, as wives move from location to location to location with their military husbands, there will be a choir family waiting to welcome them at the new location. At present, this Canadian Military Wives Choir in Stittsville is the only one in the country. Its inaugural year has been hugely successful in Sue’s view and it is looking for increase its number of members and at performing at more venues. Sue is in discussion with contacts from the military tattoos in both Halifax and Hamilton about participating in their shows next year. More information about this new Canadian Military Wives Choir which rehearses in Stittsville on a weekly basis can be found at its website www.canadianmilitarywiveschoir.ca .

Grad Oscars at Sacred Heart John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

News - Every year the motion picture industry honours the best movies and those involved with movies at the annual Academy Awards ceremony, with the 13 1/2 inch high Oscar statuette given to recognize the highest level of achievement in move making that year. It has become a tradition since beginning in 1929, watched by millions around the world every year. Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville has piggy-backed on this Oscar tradition and holds a Grad Oscars event which was held in the theatre at the school on Thursday evening, May 15. This student-run event sees a variety of Oscars given out to members of the graduating class. But while the categories are much, much different than found in the movie-making world of the Academy Awards, they are very much geared to the world of the grade 12 graduating class. So you had winners for both male and female in most cases for class clown, best dressed, cutest couple, dynamic duo, most recognizable laugh, biggest heart, smoothest talker, future Nobel laureate, future Olympian, most likely to be Hollywood bound, people never on time, future trillionaire, biggest day dreamer, biggest gamer, best hair, most likely to be in a viral video, most likely to lead a revolution, most passionate about

weather, human calculator, best musician, always eating, worst driver, most entertaining, biggest hipster and more. They are all fun categories, with four nominees in each category having their names and photos flashed on the giant screen during the Grad Oscars presentation ceremony. The nominees were announced by a variety of students, with the names of the winners in each category being walked across the stage and handed to the announcers who then read out the winning names. Cheers ensued as the winners proceeded on stage to accept their mini-statuettes emblematic of being a Grad Oscar 2014 winner. Head boy and head girl Neil Keohane and Annika Bunkis welcomed the 200 or so students to the ceremony at the beginning of the event. And just like the Academy Award Oscars attract a lot of glamour and high fashion, this Grad Oscars event at Sacred Heart steps up the dress code, as the best in semi-formal attire, both for the boys and girls, is the general rule. The presence of two giant golden Oscar replicas in the foyer outside the theatre gave a prestigious feel to the whole event, with many of the well-attired students having their photos taken with or beside the giant Oscars as they waited for the theatre doors to open and the Grad Oscars 2014 ceremony to begin.

Global Pet Foods helps ‘Danes in Distress’ John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

News - Great Danes have been given a helping hand … or, more appropriately, perhaps, a helping paw. It has been given in the form of a donation of $2,546.72 from Global Pet Foods at the Jackson Trails Centre plaza in Stittsville to “Danes in Distress,” the longest running Great Dane breed rescue organization in Canada. The funds were raised in Global Pet Foods’ eighth annual “Show Us Your Heart” fundraiser which was held at the Global Pet Foods store in Stittsville as well as at other Global pet Foods stores across Canada. In this fundraiser, sponsored by Global Pet Foods in partnership with Hill’s Ideal Balance, pet owners were asked to donate one dollar or more to help raise funds for local animal shelters across Canada. The first dollar of every in-store donation was matched by Global Pet Foods and Hill’s Ideal Balance. Nationally this year, this “Show Us Your Heart” campaign raised over $200,000, breaking last year’s record total. The formal presentation of the $2,546.72 raised at the Stittsville store for “Danes in Distress” was made on Wednesday, May 14 when store manager Monique Graziano presented the funds to Nathalie Hansen and Al Burdon of the local “Danes in Distress” organization. And Nathalie and Al did not accept the donation alone – they were accompanied by Bella, a two year old Great Dane, and by Ace, a seven year old Great Dane. In appreciation for this donation, Nathalie and Al and their two Great Dane companions presented a certificate of appreciation to the Stittsville Global Pet Foods store, thanking the store for the donation. The certificate featured a collection of photographs of Great Danes who have been rescued and adopted thanks to “Danes in Distress.” The funds donated to “Danes in Distress”

go to help pay veterinarian bills, transportation costs and other expenses related to the rescue, care and adoption of Great Danes. “Danes in Distress” is an all volunteer organization with all funds going for expenses directly related to Great Danes in the organization’s care. Global Pet Foods president Jim Walker was amazed again this year by the generosity and support of Global Pet Foods customers for this annual “Show Us Your Heart” campaign. “This year we saw an increase of 20 percent in both the number of donations and the amount raised by customers,” he said, noting that the funds raised help make a difference for local animal shelters and rescue programs across the country. This “Show Us Your Heart” campaign is supported by renowned hockey commentator and noted dog owner Don Cherry who says that there is nothing more heartbreaking than a homeless pet wanting to be loved. Since its inception eight years ago, “Show Us Your Heart” has now raised almost $800,000 to help homeless animals. “Danes in Distress” is a registered, non-profit charitable group that rescues unwanted, neglected or abused Great Danes and then places them into responsible, loving and permanent homes. Run by knowledgeable volunteers, “Danes in Distress” believes that every Great Dane deserves a chance at a long happy life in a loving home with a caring family or individual. All dogs which go through the “Danes in Distress” rescue service are physically examined, spayed or neutered as necessary, vaccinated, heartworm tested and assessed for temperament as well as receive any other medical attention needed. Some of these rescued Great Danes arrive from abusive or neglectful homes while others arrive at “Danes in Distress” because of family changes, separation, divorce or financial reversals. Yet others arrive at “Danes in Distress” from homes where the owners were not aware

breeds but their large size belies their friendly nature as Great Danes love physical affection from their owners. The breed, in fact, is often referred to as a “gentle giant” as it is generally well disposed toward other dogs, other pets and familiar humans. With proper training and care, it is great around children. Beginning in the 17th century, Great Danes were used for hunting bear, boar and deer by German nobility. Great Danes come in several colours including fawn (yellow gold with a black mask), brindle (fawn and black in a chevron stripe pattern), blue (pure steel blue), black (glossy black), Harlequin (pure white with black torn patches) and mantle (black and white with a solid black blanket extending over the body). Like most dogs, Great Danes require daily walks to maintain their health. But young Great Danes should not be over exercised because Great Dane puppies grow very large very quickly which puts them at risk of joint and bone problems if their activity is not minimized while in this fast growing state.

Campgrounds gathering in August Special to the News

News - The Stittsville Campgrounds will be coming alive once again with music and hymns, just like they did for over 75 years when they were known first as the Holiness Movement Campgrounds and then as the Methodist Campgrounds. Last August the Goulbourn Township Historical Society erected a plaque at the site of the Stittsville Campgrounds which is now the Alexander Grove park beside the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville.

Now, a gathering of anyone interested is being planned for Saturday, Aug. 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the site of the plaque. There will be a service of hymns, many of which would have been sung at the Campgrounds in bygone years. This will be followed by a pot luck lunch. Those planning to attend are encouraged to take along lawn chairs and umbrellas. This Aug. 16th gathering will go ahead rain or shine. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The benefits of interlocking concrete When you need to pave your driveway or walkways, there is no better choice than interlocking concrete. It’s one of the most economical pavement options out there, especially when it comes to long-term care. That’s partly because interlocking pavement is low maintenance. That ease is something you can appreciate right from day one as interlocking concrete can be used immediately after it is installed. It is also reusable, too, which is great if you have to remove it to fix a pavement problem or to install utilities. With interlocking concrete, you can simply remove the pavement and reinstall it when the work is completed. Interlocking concrete is also a great choice for our harsh Canadian winters. The paver units’ joints help absorb any sort of frost-related movement, meaning that it is freeze and thaw resistant. With interlocking concrete, worrying about pavement damage is a thing of the past, and that’s particularly great considering how aesthetically pleasing interlocking concrete can be. By going with interlocking concrete opposed to other pavement options, you have the choice of an assortment of patterns, curves, lines and designs that can help liven up

your environment. With all those options available, you’re even able to achieve “paver quilting.” Luckily, getting a hold of interlocking concrete in the Ottawa-Carlton region is painless. Canlok Stone www. canlok.com has been serving the area for over 35 years and has value and selection that’s hard to find anywhere else. Additionally, to supplement your new interlocking concrete installation, Canlok also carries base materials such as topsoil, sand, stone dust as well as pebble, decorative stones and boulders so you can perfect your project.

Visit Canlok Stone’s indoor/ outdoor showroom at 950 Moodle Drive in Nepean to have their experts guide you through the steps necessary to transform your property. Alternately you can call Canlok Stone at 613-828-7686 or visit them online www. canlok.com to inquire about your interlocking concrete options.

Walls tell the story of Freemasonry John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

All of these are referenced on the walls of the Lodge room.

This was the first time that this “talking tour” of the Masonic memorabilia hanging on

News - Scrapbooks and photo albums are common ways of preserving memories and the history related to them. But for the Goodwood Masonic Lodge in Richmond, it is the walls of the Lodge room that serve this function as all four walls are filled with framed photos and documents which, taken together, tell the story of Freemasonry not only in Richmond but in Ontario, in Canada and, indeed, in the world. These walls are like the open pages of a history book – all right there in full view, telling in their totality the Masonic story. A guided tour of about 70 of these framed historical artefacts, documents and photos was given to 30 members of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society and other visitors at the Goodwood Lodge on McBean Street in Richmond last Saturday afternoon. Serving as the “tour guide,” as it were, was Roger Cook, a member of Goodwood Lodge who was assisted by the Lodge’s historian Ivan Harris, who operated the video equipment which showed on a screen information related to each of the framed items pinpointed in this “talking tour” of the Lodge room. And what a tour it was, touching on famous Masons, world Masonic history, Canadian Masonic history, Ontario Masonic history, the 4th Duke of Richmond, early Richmond Masonic history (1821-1864), early Goodwood Lodge history (1864-1918) and the history of the current Goodwood Lodge building (1918 to the present).

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

the walls of the Lodge room was presented. Even Lodge members have not yet seen this presentation. Notable Masons mentioned in the presentation ranged from current monarch Queen Elizabeth II, whose photograph hangs above the Master’s Chair in the Lodge room, to Scottish poet Robbie Burns. The worldwide nature of Masonry is found on the walls of the Lodge room with photos and documents related to King Solomon’s Temple which is fundamental to the history of Freemasonry and has been included in the rituals of Masonry since ancient times as well as a framed reference to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, a spot that has been linked with the Knights Templar and Freemasonry especially since the publication of Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” in 2003 which generated popular interest in Rosslyn Chapel and its relationship with Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail. There is even a claim that the layout of Rosslyn Chapel echoes that of Solomon’s Temple. Masons are encouraged to visit Rosslyn Chapel which is near Edinburgh in Scotland and indeed Bill Cook of Richmond, who has been a member of Goodwood Lodge for 54 years, did visit Rosslyn Chapel several years ago. The early history of Masonry in England as found on the Lodge room walls of Goodwood Lodge includes references to the Eagle and Child Tavern from 1488 and the Carpenters Arms Tavern in the 1700’s,both early meeting places associated with Masons.

Bill Cook, right, background, points out to Elroy McCooeye, right, foreground, a feature of one of the framed historical photo collages on the wall at the Goodwood Masonic Lodge in Richmond last Saturday.

JOHN BRUMMELL/METROLAND

Bill Cook, right, who has been a member of the Goodwood Masonic Lodge for 54 years, chats with Robin Derrick, left, sitting, aka the Duke of Richmond and with Barbara Bottriell, centre, who is president of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society before the Historical Society’s meeting at the Masonic Lodge last Saturday afternoon. Robin Derrick, who looks after membership for the Historical Society, plays the role of the Duke of Richmond at numerous community events and happenings.

Goodwood Lodge in Richmond Continued from page 51

The presentation then dealt with Masonry in Canada with a photo of the laying of a cornerstone of a new Masonic Lodge in 1872 at an unknown location, followed by the earliest references to Masonry in Canada, including at the Port Royal settlement in 1606. What was called the oldest hanging artefact at Goodwood Lodge is an 1815 letter written by Ottawa’s first pioneer citizen, Braddish Billings, seeking membership in the Lodge then at Burritt’s Rapids. This was followed by photo collages of Ottawa District Deputy Grand Masters from 1855 onwards which included a photo of Robert Lyon, an early mayor of Ottawa, and other photographs showing Ottawa area District Masters in 1950 and 1973-74. Goodwood Lodge’s hanging collection includes several framed displays related to the Duke of Richmond who visited Richmond in 1819 and in fact died at Twin Elm just down the Jock River from Richmond. These framed displays include a photograph of Goodwood, his estate in England, and a photograph of the Duke himself, who was the Masonic Provincial Grand Master of Sussex from 1814 to his death in 1819. There is also information on display about the Anglican Cathedral in Quebec City where the Duke of Richmond is buried. The framed items on the Goodwood Lodge walls also reference the early history of Masonry in Richmond from 1821 to 1864 including the early meeting places such as Sergeant Vaughan’s log home and the Masonic Arms Tavern and a Master Mason certificate dating from 1845. Early Goodwood Lodge history in Richmond is represented on the walls by, among other items, the Lodge’s 1864 Charter granted by the Grand Lodge of Canada and a photo of Rev. Charles Biggar Pettit, the first Master of Goodwood lodge in 1864 who was also rector of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond. Other items reference prominent members of these early years of Goodwood Lodge such

as Arthur Lyon, a doctor and brother of Robert Lyon who was mayor of Ottawa in 1867, Duncan McDougall who was Master of the Lodge in 1873 and Dr. Robert Chanonhouse who was the Lodge’s Master in 1903. The presentation also dealt with the current Goodwood Lodge on McBean Street which was built in 1918, with the land having been purchased in 1912 at a cost of $250. It is the site of a previous United Church which burned down in 1900. The trowel used in laying the cornerstone for the building is on display in the Lodge room. Tour guide Roger Cook explained that the socalled Golden Ratio that is known in mathematics was incorporated into the construction of the Goodwood Lodge, with the ceiling dimensions reflecting this adherence to the Golden Ratio. Longtime Richmond reeve Edgar Gamble was the first Mason to be initiated in the Goodwood Lodge after its construction. He went on to be District Deputy Grand Master in 1940. The wall artefact hangings at Goodwood Lodge would not be complete without reference to the late Alf Harrington who did much of the historical research and legwork related to the history of Goodwood Lodge and indeed did author a book on early Freemasonry in Richmond and the history of Goodwood Lodge. His picture hangs on the wall. Bill Cook explained at this Goodwood Lodge presentation that Freemasonry grew out of the Guilds of the Middle Ages where skilled masons and workers travelled around, building cathedrals. Masonry offered them a way of getting together and Lodges evolved from that. Nowadays, Masonry is a non-denominational fraternal organization that not only encourages fellowship but also raises funds for benevolence and charity including bursaries for students, helping with hearing problems with infants, and supporting drug and alcohol abuse programs in schools. There are 22 Shriners hospitals in North America, all of which are funded by Shriners. Shriners are an extension of Masonry, as all Shriners first have to be Masons.

Robin Derrick, left, aka the Duke of Richmond, talks with Tyler Moule, centre, a member of the Goodwood Masonic Lodge, and with Goulbourn Township Historical Society member Ian White, right, at the Historical Society’s meeting at the Masonic Lodge in Richmond last Saturday afternoon.

Masonry in Richmond goes back to the early years of settlement Special to the News

News - The Masonic Lodge building which stands on McBean Street in Richmond, across from Richmond Public School, dates back to 1919, but Masonry in Richmond goes back to the very first years of settlement. For the first three years of Richmond’s existence, 1818, 1819 and 1820, those who were Masons among the early settlers met under the auspices of a military Charter or Warrant which had initially been issued in 1798 and had since that time been cancelled in Ireland, but this did not deter the Richmond settlers from using its authority for their Masonic activity. When it could not be legalized, the Masons in Richmond applied for and received a Charter dated April 29, 1821, from The Grand Masonic Convention at Kingston. With this Charter, a Richmond Masonic Lodge came into being. James Fallon was the first Worshipful Master, with Garrett Fitzgerald as the Senior Warden and Sergeant Andrew Hill as the Junior Warden. This early Masonic Lodge in Richmond met at the Masonic Coat of Arms Tavern which was where the Duke of Richmond had stayed and had attended a banquet on the night before he

died after his visit to Richmond in 1819. This early Richmond Masonic Lodge ceased in 1846 and Masons in Richmond travelled to Kemptville or North Gower or Ottawa to attend Lodge meetings. Some joined Doric Lodge in Ottawa, and it is these Masons who eventually brought about the creation of Goodwood Masonic Lodge in Richmond as of September 29, 1863. This Lodge met initially at Rielly’s Hotel, but in 1866, a Masonic Lodge room was rented from Patrick McElroy about his store at the corner of Strachan Street and McBean Street in Richmond. About 1880, the Lodge relocated to a wooden building owned by Hugh Rielly on Murray Street near Perth Street. The Goodwood Lodge purchased a vacant lot on McBean Street in 1912. It had been the site of a Methodist Church which had been built in 1877 but destroyed by fire in 1900. The Methodist Church then rebuilt farther north along McBean Street on the site of the present-day St. Paul’s United Church. In 1919, the present-day Goodwood Masonic Lodge was completed and became the home of the Goodwood Lodge. After a century of masonry in Richmond, there was finally a building expressly built to house the Masonic Lodge.

Richmond Village Association is hosting round table meeting Special to the News

News - The Richmond Village Association (RVA) is hosting a round table meeting involving village organizations to consider working together. The RVA will be holding this public round table conversation meeting on Wednesday, June 4 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre (arena) hall at

the corner of Perth Street and Huntley Road in Richmond. Five organizations – the Richmond District Lions Club, the Kiwanis Club of Goulbourn, the Richmond legion, the Richmond Agricultural Society and the Goulbourn Township Historical Society - have been specifically approached and asked to send representatives to this meeting. The purpose of the round table

meeting is to get acquainted, share goals and objectives, identify potential synergies and consider how the organizations can work together for the common good of the village and especially for the village’s 200th anniversary celebrations in 2018. The round table nature of the meeting will be encouraged with tables set up in a u-shape with representatives from each organization

sitting at the tables and members of the general public sitting at the open end of the “u.” A moderator will facilitate conversation flow, with representatives of each organization being allocated five to seven minutes to talk about their particular mandate, goals, objectives and expectations. All salient points will be recorded for future action or discussion.

There will also be a public questions period in which members of the public who attend will be able to ask questions and participate in the discussion. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend this round table meeting and help formulate how village organizations can collaborate and work together to build a better community.

Learning commons in, library out! Victoria Malo

Special to the News

News – At Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, the library is a thing of the past, replaced with the learning commons. Traditionally, a high school library is a book-filled silent room where students go to work independently on their studies. But this has changed. The quiet library where voices were shushed has evolved into a place where students can go to work but also to meet and collaborate with others with high tech aides at their disposal. Anne Donaldson, the teacher-library at Sacred Heart, explains it this way: A library is a place where people gather and are independently sitting and enjoying a book. But the new concept of a learning commons sees this same space as a place where people can come together and work

as a group. “We wanted to marry the two ideas,” Ms. Donaldson says. “There is a quiet room for people who need it, but the idea was to reflect the needs of 21st century learning.” And how has this happened? With funding from the Ottawa Catholic School Board, the library was transformed into a learning commons with an invasion of comfortable and inviting new furniture, the presence of easy-to-use netbooks, an iPad cart and the provision of projectors, screens and speakers. Additionally, wireless Internet access points were added in the ceiling so that the room could easily accommodate its growing number of visitors and their wireless needs. But the benefits found in traditional libraries are still available to those experiencing this new learning commons setup. Ms. Doinaldson points out that

while the learning commons has a lot of technology available, there is always someone on hand to help as well. So, if a student needs help for any reason or just needs to talk with someone who loves to read and can help find what is being sought, the learning commons has it all. “As a student, it is important to have a choice what way you learn,” Ms Donaldson says. “The goal is to help them (students) achieve.” And has this change to a learning commons made a difference? “I’ve definitely noticed changes,” says Ms. Donaldson. “We now have a lot of students, regularly. They come in before school and during their lunch hour. They come to do homework, to work in groups or just come in to hang out. This didn’t happen to a large extent before.” A good example of how the learning commons has become a gathering spot for students, something much different than in its previous life as a library, is how the learning com-

mons became a busy gathering spot during the Olympics earlier this year. Students got together in the learning commons, watching the action on its projector screen and cheering on the country. But the learning commons has also hosted other activities this year. It is the home of the school’s Red Maple reading club for students in grades seven and eight and for its White Pine reading club for students in grades 9 through 12. This year Sacred Heart is also taking part in “Docs for Schools” in which eight documentaries are being shown in the learning commons over the course of seven days. “This gives our classes the chance to come together and discuss the content of the documentaries,” Ms. Donaldson says. This not only helps students learn but it brings them together as a class unit. This move to a learning commons, with its technology tools, its laidback approach to student socializing and its provision of resources to meet the needs of individual students is yet another way that technology has been embraced at Sacred Heart.

“I think the whole school is very lucky to have as much technology available as we do,” said Ms. Donaldson. She notes the netbook and chrome book carts in classrooms as well as the presence of smart boards. There are displays on television monitors in the school’s central atrium. Blackboard.ca and Google docs are both heavily used in the school, keeping students in the loop regarding their work as well as up to date about activities in the school community. Many Sacred Heart teachers allow students to use their smart phones or tablets in class provided that they are being used for research. And the learning commons is just one more example of how technology is being incorporated into everyday life at Sacred Heart so that students at the school have a place to go where they can use technology, can chat with friends, can work collaboratively with fellow students and, yes, can even still read a book in a quiet place. It’s all about meeting student needs and providing a setting where technology can help students in achieving success.

Making longboards at Banting in Stittsville John Curry

With the longboards which they have made in the course at Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville are, from left, Jarrett Bisson-Scott, Briar Carruthers, Karson Jinkinson, Tom Hanssen, Randy McCluskey, Josh Proulx, Ben Freeman and supply teacher Dustin Wenzel. board, just like they did with their skateboards last year. The students also call on each other for advice while making their longboards and they do work collaboratively as well, such as when up to five of them apply the force to ensure that the strips of veneer go together tightly to create the longboard. The business component of the course is found in making skateboards and mini-boards for auctioning off next October to help out CHEO which is, in effect, the client for whom the students are producing the boards, just like a business would. Each longboard made by the students is customized, not only in its

artwork but also in its profile. This is another advancement in the program this year, as students this year are cutting the wood to customize the design profile of the longboard. Last year the students just focused on finishing the wood through sanding. The skateboards being made for auction for CHEO will feature artistic designs based on the written stories of youth from CHEO who have suffered from mental health issues. This not only exposes the Banting students to mental health matters but also lets them be directly involved in helping CHEO raise funds. Banting student Ben Freeman found the image of a wolf on Google which matched the kind of image that

OVER 400 VARIETIES OF K-CUPS

he wanted to have on his longboard. “I wanted a fierce kind of wolf,” he says. He is a big supporter of this skateboard/longboard making course at Frederick Banting Alternate Program, saying that it allows students to be creative. In addition, he says that it is a great course for students who prefer “hands on” learning. “The best program for the hands on type,” he says when speaking about the course. He explains that every student does his or her own thing in the course but that if help is needed, other students quickly provide their ideas and advice, making it a real team building

exercise. The longboards, skateboards and mini-boards made in this course at Frederick Banting Alternate Program will be on display at the art show being held in conjunction with the upcoming open house at the Stittsville Main Street school on Thursday, May 29 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and again from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. While there will be much art on display in the show, these longboards, skateboards and mini-boards with their creative and unique artwork designs will be a “must see” at the show. Everyone in the community is welcome to drop into the open house and art show on Thursday, May 29.

News - Last year making skateboards featuring artistic designs was just a fun project at Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville. This year it not only has become a full credit interdisciplinary course but it also has a partnership with CHEO associated with it. And this year the main focus has been on longboards, that longer variant of a skateboard that is commonly used for cruising. But skateboards are still in the mix, as are a number of mini-boards. Making longboards, skateboards and mini-boards qualified this year as a six-week full credit course under three categories: visual arts, leadership and business. And students taking the course not only get a credit for completing it but also get to keep and ride their custom-made longboard. It was Dustin Wenzel, a practice teacher last year and this year a supply teacher at Banting, who began thinking about how to improve the initiative after last year’s successful inaugural fun project. Students had indicated that they wanted to make longboards rather than skateboards but also making it a credit course was an improvement as well. Dustin and teacher Mary Williamson were able to check with a skateboard making school in Toronto for advice on how to incorporate curriculum into the project so that it would qualify as a credit course. The visual arts component was obvious as the students create their own unique artwork on their long-

Lifestyle - The Minister, I thought, was like two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The Minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadn’t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the Minister had climbed into the pulpit, which was a round carved wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and summer the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed some horrible sin. To emphasize a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day fly out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away. His wife, whom Mother said was a saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right.

Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to shake hands with the Minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever committed. I couldn’t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our Minister. I wasn’t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather came. He didn’t own a car, but he did have a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have walked in our lane faster than the Minister’s horse pulling the buggy. And he always came at our dinner time at noon. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the meal more fancy. We didn’t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where

The Minister would pump Mother’s hand, ruffle my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a fine young woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane. Audrey and I would help Mother clean up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the Minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didn’t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didn’t know anyone out in the country who didn’t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the Minister was like two different people. The stern, no-nonsense man in the pulpit on a Sunday, and then there was the man who could laugh and mingle with the common folk around a kitchen table.

“Getting Dementia to the Top of the Agenda:

Winning the Support of UK Prime Minister David Cameron” The British Alzheimer’s Society set an ambitious agenda to make living well with dementia a reality. And they enlisted the support of UK Prime Minister David Cameron to do it.

How? Are there lessons for us in Canada? British Alzheimer CEO Jeremy Hughes will be guest speaker at the Ottawa Alzheimer Society’s annual meeting and Saroj Lal Lecture. Date/Time: June 16, 2014 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Location: Ottawa Convention Centre, Trillium Ballroom Cost: $55/person includes a delicious luncheon. $400 for a table of 8. Pre-registration is required by June 13. Call 613-523-4004 or register online at www.alzheimer.ca/ottawa Sponsored by:

MARY COOK Minister was bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Mary Cook’s Memories

he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying Grace, the Minister, on Mother’s invitation said the blessing, which was long and purposeful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the Minister, didn’t stop Father from pouring out his tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, Minister or not, and headed back out to the fields. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small basket of fresh eggs. Everett would, without asking, have cornered a fowl, pushed it squawking into a grain sack, and everything would be put in the Minister’s buggy.

Quick loaf with crumble top makes a great hostess gift Foodland Ontario Special to the News

Lifestyle - This moist and lightly sweetened quick loaf is fun to wrap up in pretty packaging - perfect as a hostess gift or to bring to a teacher or neighbour. The hardest part is deciding which variation to make, apple, pear or carrot, full-size or mini? Preparation time: 15 minutes. Baking time: 45 to 50 minutes. Serves 12. Ingredients * 500 ml (2 cups) all-purpose flour * 125 ml (1/2 cup) packed brown sugar * 10 ml (2 tsp) cinnamon * 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) baking powder * 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each baking soda and salt * 1 ml (1/4 tsp) ground nutmeg * 1 egg, beaten * 250 ml (1 cup) buttermilk * 75 ml (1/3 cup) butter, melted * 10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla * 250 ml (1 cup) diced apples, unpeeled * 75 ml (1/3 cup) toasted chopped walnuts Crumble-Top * 50 ml (1/4 cup) each all-purpose flour, large-flaked rolled oats, packed brown sugar and chopped walnuts * 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter, melted * 2 ml (1/2 tsp) cinnamon

Preparation Crumble-top: In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, walnuts, butter and cinnamon and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Sprinkle the mixture with the apples and walnuts and stir just until combined. Spread the mixture into a parchment paper-lined or buttered 23 by 12-centimetre (nine by five-inch) metal loaf pan. Smooth the top of the mixture in the pan and sprinkle it with crumble-top. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes and then turn it out onto the rack to cool completely. Variations Pear-Pecan: Substitute pecans for walnuts. In the loaf, reduce the cinnamon to 2 ml (1/2 tsp) and add 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) of ground ginger. Switch the apples with pears. Carrot-Walnut: Substitute 250 ml (1 cup) of shredded carrots for the apples. Mini-Loaves: Use three approximately 12 by eight-centimetre (five by three-inch) loaf pans and bake 20 to 25 minutes.

Blood donor clinic in Richmond Special to the News

News - A community blood donor clinic will be held in Richmond this Friday, May 23. The clinic hosted by Canadian Blood Services will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the St. Philip Parish Hall at the corner of Burke Street and Fortune Street in Richmond. To book an appointment for this community blood donor clinic, visit the website www.blood.ca or call 1888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283). There is always a need for blood donations and the need is ongoing. It often requires numerous units of blood to help just one patient.

A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means that 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. Up to five donors are needed to provide the blood to help someone through heart surgery. Between two and eight donors are usually needed to help save someone with internal bleeding. Yes, the need continues and only you can make the difference, only you can give the gift of life, a blood donation. Canadian Blood Services is a national, not-for-profit charitable orga-

nization that manages the supply of blood and blood products in all of the provinces and territories except for Quebec which has a separate organization, Hema-Quebec, which does the same thing. Canadian Blood Services operates 42 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics each year. This upcoming clinic in Richmond is one of these donor clinics. Canadian Blood Services collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year through blood transfusions.

News - It’s a week later happening this year but the slight change of date is not the only change. There’s a name change as well, with the event now being called “Arts in the Park” rather than “Artists and Authors in the Park” as it has been. This name is to better reflect the diversity of exhibitors which are now being solicited to dis-

purchase uniquely designed and created jewellery and clothing. There will be activities for children such as crafts, storytelling and face painting. There will also be food available on site this year. “We tried to expand it to different people just to be more inclusive,” SVA director Doug Sutherland told the SVA executive at its May 8 meeting in explaining why others rather than just authors and artists are being accepted as exhibitors at this year’s “Arts in the Park” event. The event will also have some musical entertainment and members of the “Company of Fools” will be on hand to perform.
