EMC news - Dolls, a new book and women of the War of 1812 – now that’s variety. But that’s the range of topics at three adult programs which are coming up at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library this month. It all begins this coming Monday, Sept. 17 at 1:30 p.m. when Peggy Wilson, a figurative artist who creates soft sculpture dolls, will be giving a presentation. Peggy’s dolls are in private and public collections internationally. She has been creating and designing her own soft sculpture dolls since she first discovered an interest in this art form. She now offers workshops and classes to others who want to learn this art of making dolls. This initial presentation will be followed by one of Thursday, Sept. 20 when first time author Brenda Missen will be at the library at 6:30 p.m. to talk about her book “Tell Anna She’s Safe,” the story of a woman who disappeared and her friend who assisted in the search to find her. The third program in September will be given by Kurt Johnson who will talk about “Perils and Petticoats: The Exceptional Women of the War of 1812.” His presentation will deal with the War of 1812 but more specifically on the exploits of women in that war. All of these programs are free but registration is required by phoning the Stittsville library at 613-836-3381.

EMC news - Hospice and palliative care will be front and centre at St. John’s Anglican Church in Richmond on Sunday, Sept. 30. That’s the day that St. John’s will be hosting a Hospice Walk, a 3 kilometer fundraising walk called “Around The Block.” But the event will be more than this. There will also be a guided labyrinth walk of St. John’s labyrinth, an option for those who might not want to go “Around The Block.” There will also be an ongoing BBQ and, in addition, there will be a guest speaker talking about an Ottawa hospice as well as a guest speaker who is a grief educator. It’s all happening from noon to 3 p.m. Marg Smeaton of the Ottawa Mission Hospice will be on hand to tell about the Ottawa Mission Hospice which has just celebrated its tenth anniversary, having open in July 2001. Over the course of this time, 178 men and women have received palliative care at this 14 fed facility located in downtown

Ottawa, caring primarily for the homeless. Ian Henderson, a grief educator, will speak about the grief workshops that are held at St. John’s as well as a new initiative, a grief support group that will be getting underway at the end of October. St. John’s hopes to make this Hospice Walk day an annual event not only to raise funds for the Ottawa Mission Hospice and the St. John’s Hospice Fund supporting the weekly day hospice that happens at the St. John’s Anglican Church Hall but also to raise awareness and to educate people in the community about hospice and palliative care and the services that are available to those facing an “end of life” or life threatening illness. It was back in September 2007 that St. John’s Anglican Church, in collaboration with Friends of Hospice Ottawa, opened its day hospice which operates every Thursday at the St. John’s Anglican Church Hall. Through this day hospice, which continues to operate, not only have clients and caregivers found support, encouragement, compassion and fellow pilgrims with which to share the road to the “end of life” but also a wealth of expertise and information

regarding hospice and palliative care has been developed in the Richmond community. Hospice and palliative care is all about dying with dignity and ensuring access to the resources that are available in the community for this to happen. The mission statement of Friends of Hospice Ottawa captures the essence of hospice and palliative care when it states “While we cannot add days to your life, we can add life to your days.” St. John’s is hoping that many in the community will turn out for this upcoming Hospice Walk event on Sunday, Sept. 30 from noon until 3 p.m. at the church on Fowler Street in Richmond. Seventy-five percent of the funds raised by this event will go to the Ottawa Mission Hospice while 35 percent will go to the church’s Hospice Fund for the day hospice and grief workshop work that is happening at St. John’s. Those who are planning to participate in this Hospice Walk should make donation cheques payable to St. John’s Hospice Walk – Around The Block. For more information, please contact Rev. Michel Dubord at 613-838-6075 or via email at

Ian Colpitts of Stittsville passes away at age 87

EMC news - Ian Colpitts, one of the leaders of the campaign to raise funds and build what is now the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville, has died. The longtime Stittsville resident died on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2012 at Carlingview Manor in Ottawa, surrounded by his family. He was 87. Mr. Colpitts is recognized as one of the leaders in the community effort which raised funds and built what was known as the Stittsville District Community Centre when it opened on Jan. 15, 1971. This was the first indoor rink for what was then the small but growing community of Stittsville with 1600 residents. Its construction was a major accomplishment growing out of a concerted community fundraising effort and was debt free when it was finally completed and officially opened in Oct. 1973. In 1996, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of its opening and to pay tribute to the two individuals who were universally acknowledged as being instrumental in guiding the arena project from its instigation in 1967 to its completion in 1973, Goulbourn township council named one of the streets leading off Stittsville Main Street into the facility as Warner-Colpitts Lane. In 1997, Ian Colpitts and Sterling Warner, these two acknowledged leaders of the campaign to build the Stittsville District Community Centre, were honoured as recipients of the Goulbourn

Sports Wall of Fame Committee Award for outstanding contribution to sports in Goulbourn township. In accepting the award and speaking on behalf of both himself and Mr. Warner, Mr. Colpitts said that the pair was accepting the award on behalf of the many citizens of Stittsville and area who made the building of the arena possible. He acknowledged at that time that he and Mr. Warner had dedicated six years of hard work to the project but noted that many others in the community did so as well. Without the cooperation and efforts of the citizens of Stittsville and district, the project would not have succeeded, he said. Mr. Colpitts, whose working life involved ownership of Graydex Construction, was also an avid oldtimers’ hockey player. He even travelled to California to play in the famous oldtimers’ tournament associated with Peanuts’ creator Charles M. Schulz. He also organized an annual hockey challenge game between Stittsville and Elgin, New Brunswick. Mr. Colpitts remained active, taking part in seniors’ skating sessions in the community. He is survived by his wife, the former Marion Harrison, and his children Anna Staples, Don, Betty Hyndman, Patsi McCooeye and Ron. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his in-laws Sonny Harrison, Vivian Comeau, Dorothy McMunn, Joy Steeves and Sharon Argue as well as by many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by

Spiritual questions? Try ‘Thirst’ for answers Special to the News

EMC news - High school students do have spiritual questions. But where to have such questions discussed and answered? One place is the Community Bible Church on Stittsville Main Street where the church holds a weekly gathering called “Thirst” that is just for high school students. All high school students in grades 9 to 12 are welcome to attend regardless of religious affiliation. These “Thirst” gatherings are held weekly on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. There is a short relevant topical presentation followed by small group discussions, one for guys and one for girls. These group discussions are facilitated to ensure that the conversation remains appropriate and safe while allowing for exploration of spiritual questions. And, oh yes, there is free snacks and coffee served. Any and all spiritual questions are encouraged. High school students are invited to attend a “Thirst” session, either individually or with a friend or friends, to check it out and see if this is what you are seeking. There is also the possibility that you will meet new people who will become new friends over time. The Community Bible Church is located at 1600 Stittsville Main Street. More information is available by phone at 613836-2606 or on the web at .

Street organ plays outside Gaia Java Coffee to the Friday music evening at the shop which featured a pair of jazz musicians. Even a light sprinkling of rain just after 6:30 p.m. did not stop Mr. Rushforth and his music, as he simply retrieved an umbrella from a vehicle and continued to send his organ music out over the raindrop-infested air of the parking lot. A number of people did stop by as he played, checking out the custom-build wooden street organ that Mr. Rushforth completed earlier this year, getting the plans off the

John Curry

EMC news - That iconic song for the Big Apple, “New York, New York,” most closely associated with Frank Sinatra, wafted over the parking lot at the Stittsville Shopping Centre in Stittsville early last Friday evening, Sept. 7 thanks to a hand-made street organ. Alan Rushforth, owner and builder of the street organ, had set it up just outside the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop just after 6 p.m. to give a short demonstration concert prior

internet and then modifying them to fit the size of street organ that he was hoping to build. Back in June, he and the newly finished organ were at the Park Party at Village Square Park in Stittsville that was hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. He also has other engagements in the works. Mr. Rushforth simply turns a wheel attached to the street organ to provide the power that operates the street organ. The street organ has a total of 93 organ pipes in it, along

with air valves and other mechanisms which produce the music. Right now he can play about 25 different tunes which are controlled by a computer card reader, ranging from old favourites like “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” to marches to show tunes. Indeed, Paul Jay of Gaia Java Coffee Company Ltd. shop,

who is a singer and music aficionado, is going to try to write a song for the street organ. Mr. Jay asked Mr. Rushforth to set up his street organ outside the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop and play early last Friday evening after learning about the instrument since Mr. Rushforth is a regular customer at the shop.

Mr. Rushforth’s street organ performance was followed by a Friday music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop which featured the jazz guitar and bass of Justin Orok and Travis Graham, two youthful musical performers who delivered a blend of new interpretations of jazz standards.

Walkers almost double fundraising goal

EMC news - The “Gift of Life” was given and then some at last Sunday’s Walk for the Kidney Foundation in Stittsville. The goal of $5,000 set for this first-ever Give the Gift of Life Walk in Stittsville was almost doubled, with $9,574.19 raised – 191 percent of the initial goal. Almost 100 walkers took part in this firstever Give the Gift of Life Walk for the Kidney Foundation which saw walkers leave the Stittsville United Church at 11:25 a.m. after a brief launch ceremony. Following a prayer led by Rev. Grant Dillenbeck of Stittsville United Church and with the church bells peeling to announce the beginning of the walk, the walkers headed along Stittsville Main Street, some wearing the Walk’s white t-shirts and virtually all with paper labels on their backs declaring “I am walking for…” with a name inserted. At Beverly Street, 2.5 kilometers from the church, which some walkers reached as early as 11:45 a.m., everyone turned around and headed back to the Stittsville United Church where a lunch awaited them thanks to the generosity of Sobey’s in Stittsville. Following a Saturday where pouring rain was prevalent, this Give the Gift of Life Walk saw sunny weather with blue skies – just ide-

al for the Walk and for the ensuing Fun Day Sunday at the church where there was music, candy floss and a couple of bounces for family enjoyment. Ruth Richardson, co-coordinator of this Stittsville Walk, welcomed everyone to the Walk, speaking from the church’s front steps. “Today we are taking steps and inspiring hope with a vision to create a better future for those living with kidney disease,” she said in her remarks. She said that the Walk was being held in support of those living with kidney disease, transplant recipients, kidney donors and families and friends of those whose lives have been affected by kidney disease. She said that the walkers were helping to make a difference in supporting the fight against kidney disease, noting this fight’s heightened potential thanks to new research, patient programs and services. “Today we will celebrate new beginnings, remember loved ones and honour those who face the challenges of kidney disease every day with courage,” Ms. Richardson said. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who was at the launch for the Walk, urged people to consider donating a kidney, to continue to participate in such fundraising Walks and to sign their donor card. Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst, co-coordinator of the Walk and a kidney transplant recipient, told

The Walk had numerous teams entered – United We Walk ONE, School School Striders, Stittsville UC Youth, M and M, Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, Stittsville Curves, Stittsville Rotary, Graham Clan, Leaping Larsons, St. Thomas Anglican, I Believe, Band Against Kidney Disease and The Strong Sisters. United We Walk ONE was the top fundraising team, raising $1,960. The I Believe team was next with $1,143 raised, followed by the Graham Clan with $1,025, the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers with $1,020.19 and the Stittsville Rotary with $995. Top individual fundraisers in the Walk were Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst with $1,125, Mary Bleskie with $768, Carolyn Clark with $700, Carolyn Pennett with $535 and Alanna Code with $485.19. With such effort and generosity, it is no wonder that the Walk far exceeded its fundraising goal. The Walk also succeeded thanks to the support of numerous local sponsors: Sobey’s for lunch, Fonograph for the musical entertainment, NOLA French Quarter Eatery, M&M Meat Shops in Stittsville, Curves in Stittsville, Shoppers Drug Mart, Farm Boy, Vos Trailers, Pretty Pots Florist & Gifts, Karter’s Korners, Bounce ‘n Stuff, Eric Mesdag and local churches. A draw for various prizes was held during the lunch following the walk.

the story of how her transplanted kidney got its name, Fred. She told how while waiting for her surgery on this past Dec. 1, her donor suggested the name “Fred” for the donated kidney. So, Fred became its name. Indeed, a giant sign showing a red kidney with the inscription “We Love Fred” was attached to the side of the church’s front steps at the event. Ms. Hochster-Hurst, in her remarks at the launch ceremony, told how quickly good health returns to a kidney transplant recipient like herself when the transplant works. She said that her quality of life has changed so very remarkably since she received her kidney transplant. Craig Dunbar, a Stittsville resident who works for the Kidney Foundation and is a kidney disease patient himself, told how the Kidney Foundation gets a lot of its funds thanks to Give the Gift of Life Walks like this inaugural one in Stittsville this year. He told how the Kidney Foundation funds research as well as various patient programs. Before the walkers started, Megan Dillenbeck, a dance movement therapist, led the group in a brief warm up which included rocking back and forth on the feet, swiveling the body and doing three arm stretches, the last punctuated by some hearty “Hip Hip Hoorays.”

Get electoral boundary changes right


ndertaking the task of re-drawing federal electoral boundaries is surely daunting, but it serves to ensure all Canadians are as equitably represented in the House of Commons as possible. While the recent announcement of a proposed federal electoral map makes several positive moves for voters in the city of Ottawa, it also fails to address an issue that many residents of this city can relate

to: the urban-suburban-rural divides. The total number of electoral districts required in Ontario has grown by 15 to 121, triggered by 2011 census data showing this province’s population has grown by more than 1.4 million since 2001. According to the proposal created by a federal electoral boundaries commission, a number of new ridings have been created in areas of dramatic population growth across the province. Some ex-

isting riding boundaries have likewise been adjusted. Among them are the proposed new riding of Nepean and the renamed riding of Carleton-Kanata, formerly Carleton-Mississippi Mills. There are positive aspects to both of these moves, but they were easy decisions to make. Move the western border of the renamed Carleton-Kanata riding to the city limits, break off the well-populated suburban chunk of the massive Nepean-Carleton riding and

name it Nepean. Job done. But there are missed opportunities here. Residents in rural places like Carp, Fitzroy Harbour and Dunrobin are still at the mercy of the suburban voters in Kanata. The voices of voters in Dwyer Hill, North Gower and Metcalfe are still drowned out by residents of Stittsville, Riverside South and Greely – larger, denser suburban nooks in what is mainly a rural riding. The situation is slightly dif-

ferent in the east end, where pockets of voters in places like Cumberland, Carlsbad Springs, Vars and Sarsfield remain in the sprawling Glengarry-Prescott-Russell riding, despite the fact they pay city property taxes. These examples stand out as missed opportunities for the commission, opportunities to ensure voters receive fair, balanced representation in the House of Commons. Presently, it must be difficult for an MP, such as Nepe-

an-Carleton’s Pierre Poilievre or Carleton-Mississippi Mills’ Gordon O’Connor, to balance the way they represent their constituents. They are beholden to two different viewpoints, but one of those viewpoints gets them elected, the other – owing to smaller numbers – doesn’t. The federal electoral boundaries commission should be doing its utmost to make this balancing act easier for our elected officials, so they can serve an electorate with common concerns. If it involves redrawing the entire Ottawa electoral map to ensure the population is balanced, so be it.


Giving a nod to the wave has no business being on a lake this size. And as you’re thinking that, he gives you a friendly wave. Oh well, you think, at least he waved. Waving is a connection. Sometimes it’s an unpleasant connection, such as the well-known one-finger wave which usually occurs in traffic. Other times the connection is fleeting and distant. Children wave at a passing train. Passengers wave back. What does it mean for either of them? Yet they couldn’t not do it. The wave as “thank you� figures prominently in our daily lives. You know the situation: You’re coming out of a gas station or a side street into a heavy stream of traffic and somebody slows to let you in. When you are safely into the traffic, you wave your thanks. With your whole hand. And you mean it. Without people like that, willing to give up a few seconds of their busy lives, we’d be living in chaos, gridlock interrupted by some people barging into traffic and others slamming on their brakes. There would be a lot more one-finger waving then. The funny thing is that, even though the sacrifice we make in letting someone in is tiny, we still expect to be thanked for it. We want to see that wave. When we don’t, we are annoyed. “Wave, dammit,� we mutter from behind the steering wheel. The same thing goes for when we hold open a door for someone. It’s certainly no trouble, but we expect thanks for it. It may be sheer vanity but it may also be that we like people to acknowledge that we exist. Such acknowledgement is all the more important in an age when so many of our dealings are with computers, robots and other gizmos that know us only as a number, if at all. So we wave our thanks and feel thankful for waves. Mind you, for some of us, no thanks are required. Simply doing the good deed is reward enough. Those would be the saints among us. Too bad more of us are not like that, but then we’d all be saints and who would we look up to? And who would we look down at?



aving is important. We don’t do it enough either. The other day, in one of those inevitable construction lineups on Highway 7, I watched the guy in front of me wave to the flagman as we started moving after a long delay. The flagman waved back. I waved too. He waved back at me. It was nice. Now, what did it mean? What were we all saying to each other? The guy in front, was he saying “thanks for waving me on, for changing the STOP sign to the SLOW sign�? Or was he saying: “No hard feelings: it’s not your fault I had to sit here for five minutes.� Or was he saying: “Thanks for standing out in the hot sun all day so that all of us don’t go crunching into some construction machinery?� What about the flag guy? Was he saying “thanks for being so patient� or was he saying “thanks for waving?� It could have been any or all of that, or none of it. Probably what mattered most of all was that we were human beings acknowledging that we’re all in this together, which, when you think about it, we don’t do often enough. On our lakes there is an old tradition that people in boats wave at people in other boats as they pass. Who knows what that means, perhaps something about members of the community of boaters saluting each other. The funny thing is you notice it when it doesn’t happen. And if it does happen, it can change the way you think about the other boater. Say he’s driving some great big noisy overpowered ocean liner of a boat that you think

Gerd Lohmann cherishes one word - ‘volunteer’ John Curry

EMC news - He may be the current vicepresident and will be moving up to president at some point but for Gerd Lohmann, there’s just one word that really covers what he and many others do for the Richmond Agricultural Society and its headline event, the annual Richmond Fair – and that word is “volunteer.� “It’s not really about titles,� the Goulbourn gentleman farmer says, describing himself as just another volunteer trying to make the Fair happen as it should. It’s all about getting done the day-to-day work that needs to be done for a successful fair. Gerd says that most of the volunteers involved with the Fair have been doing it for years and need very little direction. “I’m just proud to be one of those volunteers,� Gerd says, adding that the Fair is blessed to have the superb volunteers which it has, a group that he says is “like one big family,� all pitching in to make the Fair happen. And Gerd readily admits that after he moves

up to be the Agricultural Society’s president and does his two years in that position, he will hopefully continue on as a director but, more importantly, will definitely continue to be a volunteer. That’s the most important role in his view. He notes that people from all walks of life are Fair volunteers and all enjoy it. “It gets in your blood,� he says about this volunteer work. Gerd has been involved with the Richmond Agricultural Society and the Richmond Fair for about a decade now, having been recruited, as it were, by former president Wayne Byrne. He has looked after the concessions for several years now and plans to continue, although he admits that he may have to get someone to help him with the task when he is president. As the current vice-president, Gerd attends the monthly executive and board meetings and works closely with president Larry Monuk on all aspects of the Fair. It is a role that is to prepare him for when he becomes the Society’s president. He also attends any Fair openings and other events in the area which president

Larry cannot attend. He also attends the annual Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies convention in Toronto as well as the annual Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions convention which moves around the country annually. Gerd admits that he has not served on all of the Fair’s committees, something which would perhaps assist him when president. But he knows as well that the Fair has good, hard working volunteers in all areas of its operation and so he feels that the president does not necessarily have to be experienced in every aspect of the Fair. There are lots of volunteers who have the necessary expertise and can share it with him and the Board of Directors. He sees the role of the president as encouraging everyone to have their say and express their views. Gerd is a enthusiastic fan of the Richmond Fair, calling it the greatest venue in the world to expose children and families to agriculture and what it is all about. “It’s just an experience,� he says, calling it

fulfilling for any family. He is particularly proud of the Richmond Fair’s agricultural awareness program for children, relating the amazement which youngsters experience when they visit the Fair’s school awareness program on Fair Friday. He believes that the Richmond Fair’s agricultural awareness program for children is one of the best in the Ottawa Valley. Gerd notes that the Fair’s main function is promoting agriculture. He admits that the Fair also has games and fun activities like the midway but says that these are offered so that the agricultural side of things can keep going. He feels that the goal of the annual Fair is to give people the best experience possible for the money paid, while hoping that the Fair is blessed with good weather. But, if it does rain, people should still smile and go on with the event. “It’s an honour to be part of a 168 year old tradition that has put smiles on the faces of so many people over the years,� Gerd says.

End of polio needs last minute push John Curry

EMC news - The world is close, oh, so close to seeing the end of polio. Worldwide cases are at an all time low, just 123 so far this year, down from 333 cases at the same time last year. But eradicating polio in the world may slip through the world’s fingers and flare up again unless there is a last minute push to provide the vaccines and resources necessary to complete the world wipeout of polio. This was the warning given to members of the Rotary

Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at the Club’s meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 4 by d’Arcy Lunn who is touring Canada on behalf of the Global Poverty Project, a United Nations public education initiative launched in 2008 which has inaugurated “The End of Polio” campaign. Right now, there are just three countries where polio remains a problem – Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. India, formerly a problem country, is marking its one year polio-free anniversary, with no cases reported this year. “If you can get rid of polio in India, you can get rid of it

anywhere,” Mr. Lunn, wearing a purple t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “The End of Polio is within reach,” told those at the Rotary meeting. And Rotary International is one of the partners with Global Poverty Project in this final push to get rid of polio in the world. Indeed, Rotary had been heavily involved in trying to eliminate polio in the world since 1994. And these efforts have been working. Since 1988, polio, a disease that has disabled millions over the years, has been reduced worldwide by 99 percent. It is that close to total elimination.

Mr. Lunn praised the Canadian government for being one of the leading supporters of polio eradication, providing millions annually in past years. But there are challenges to reaching total eradication. Some countries are reducing their fiscal support, creating a current $945 million funding gap for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Some countries have scaled back

their polio eradication efforts, creating another challenge to its continued elimination. That’s why Mr. Lunn urged Rotary Club members to get the story of polio eradication out in the community so that people will let the federal government know that they want a world without polio. In addition, donations to Rotary International’s PolioPlus fund will help, especially since this can result in matching fund-

ing from organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Mr. Lunn said that even small actions taken by lots of people can create big results, resulting in a polio free world everywhere and forever. Over 2.5 billion children have been immunized against polio. This has prevented more than eight million children having to live with lifelong paralysis or suffer death.

Rotary Club will match donations to end polio Special to the News

EMC news - You can help with the final push to get rid of polio in the world by making a financial contribution to the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. This will not only see your donation directed to help in the final push to eradicate polio in the last three countries in the world where it is epidemic, namely Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but also will see your donation matched by the Rotary Club. So you will get double the impact with your donation. Members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville have personally committed to donating $1,600 to the cause as matching dollars for contributions received from members of the community. So, if members of the community

collectively donate $1,600, then the Rotary Club members will match this, doubling the amount that goes to polio eradication. If the community, so known for its generosity, exceeds this $1,600 in donations, the Rotary Club members will match the first $1,600 donated. In addition to your donation being matched by Rotary Club donations, all donations of $20 or more will be issued an income tax receipt. So you win all around. Those wishing to donate to help eradicate polio in the world once and for all should send cheques to 28 Renshaw Avenue, Stittsville, Ont. K2S 1G9. The cheques should be made payable to the Ottawa Stittsville Rotary Club. For more information, please contact Rotary Club member Leo Maiorino at 613-371-6975.

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medals presented John Curry

EMC news - Three from Stittsville were among 33 recipients of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in a ceremony on Parliament Hill on Thursday evening, Sept. 6. In addition, two others with Stittsville connections were recipients. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal is being presented to Canadians from all walks of life and backgrounds who have made significant contributions to their communities. These 33 Medals presented on Sept. 6 were presented by the Hon. Gordon O’Connor, MP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Minister of State and Chief Government Whip, with the recipients selected from nominations made by members of the general public. Stittsville residents receiving Medals were Shad Qadri, Bernie Muzeen and Mark Grasza. Two with connections to Stittsville who were among the recipients were Brenda Merkley, a former bank manager in Stittsville, and Dr. Joanne Perry, a longtime doctor in Stittsville. Shad Qadri, who is the current Ottawa city councillor for the Stittsville ward, is a former president of both the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) and the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. He was

among the founders of both organizations, being elected first vice-president of the SVA when it started in 2001 while he was the charter president of the Rotary Club when it began in 2004. Before his leadership roles in these two community organizations, Mr. Qadri had become immersed in community work and endeavours through his business, ShowBiz Entertainment and Gifts in Stittsville, which was as much a village meeting place and hub as it was a commercial enterprise. He became known as “Mr. Stittsville” because of his presence at community events, his involvement in community organizations and his service to the community. Bernie Muzeen of Stittsville has worked with youth ever since he came to Canada from England in 1958. He served as executive director of the Ottawa Boys’ Club from 1973 to 1989, during which time the Club not only experienced tremendous growth in membership but also expanded its programs. He integrated disabled children into the program and he also brought girls into the Club, requiring a name change to the Boys and Girls Club. From 1991 to 2003, he volunteered with the Kanata Youth Centre. In 2004, he became an author, writing “The Guiding

He followed this initial book with his “Santa and the Spirit of Christmas” collection, a series of 13 different illustrated books dealing with stories about Santa. He continues to volunteer with the Kanata Youth Centre and has led singalongs at the Empress Seniors Residence in Kanata for the past 11 years.

Two of his paintings depicting the War of 1812 are currently on exhibit at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library while another of his paintings is among those in the newest exhibition on display at the Ottawa West Arts Association gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville. Mr. Grasza has contributed over 1,000 of his paintings to various Heads of State and Heads of Government. He designed the inaugural diplomas presented by the Senate and the House of Commons. Mr. Grasza has also written a book, not yet published, about the happenings in a city in his native Poland in the period between World War One and World War Two. Among those on hand to see Mr. Grasza receive the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal was Zenon KosiniakKamysz, the Polish Ambassador to Canada. Medal recipient Brenda Merkley of Kanata is a former manager of Scotiabank in Stittsville. Now working for Investors, she was a founding member of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce, is


Brenda Merkley, a former manager of Scotiabank in Stittsville, received a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal at a ceremony on Parliament Hill on Thursday evening, Sept. 6. active with the Bridlewood Community Association and canvasses her community for both the Arthritis Society and the Canadian Cancer Society. Dr. Joanne Perry, who lives in Nepean, has worked at the Stittsville Medical Centre for over 20 years, starting back when Dr. Jim Bell was there. A family physician, she has volunteered annually since 1998 on mission trips to Third World countries to provide medical care in remote impoverished areas. She has visited countries such as Roma-

nia, Nepal, Bolivia, Guyana, Kenya and Haiti on these selffunded trips. Others among the 33 receiving the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal at this Sept. 6 ceremony included city of Ottawa West Carleton/March ward councillor Eli El-Chantiry, high tech entrepreneur Dr. Adam Chowaniec, radio personality Mark Papousek, Superior Court Judge the Hon. Justice Timothy Ray, and singer Wayne Rostad. In his remarks at the ceremony, MP Gordon O’Connor noted that only 60,000 Canadians are receiving the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. He said that the Medal signifies the important contributions which the recipients have made to everyday life in Canada, serving as role models and giving back to the community. He said that the recipients revealed a common thread, namely that they have all gone beyond what would be normally expected to serve others, their communities and their country. The year 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the reign of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, as Queen of Canada. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal was implemented to celebrate this Diamond Jubilee while also marking the achievements of outstanding Canadians.

Letter: Roundabouts Dear editor: The letter submitted by Roger Manship in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stittsville News EMC was of particular interest to me. I have been wondering why traffic signals are appearing everywhere, often when in many places the utility of these lights completely escapes me. Traffic lights cause intersections to be used sub-optimally with lots of time intervals when all traffic is stopped because of amber in the light cycle. Mr. Manship suggests â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;roundaboutsâ&#x20AC;? and I would like to add some comments that may put that suggestion further in perspective. Roundabouts keep the traffic moving. They do slow cars down, but in many cases do not stop them. This reduces braking with accompanying lost momentum, brake lining particles in the air, reduces idling and the need for acceleration. Idling and accelerating from a complete stop makes engines run at a rather sub-optimal efficiency and produces air pollution due to poor combustion. Roundabouts eliminate the need for traffic signals, their power use and need for maintenance. Roundabouts also reduce the need for turning lanes leading up to an intersection, since the traffic normally keeps moving anyway. This reduces the need for more paved surfaces (reducing the heat-island effect) meaning a smaller area required for intersections freeing up space for greenery. For intersecting

four-lane roads, special curbs or painted lines can be installed to guide the traffic (routinely done in the United Kingdom and elsewhere). Fewer lanes at intersections reduces and simplifies snow removal. T-bone collisions will be a thing of the past. With fewer lanes to deal with, it is safer for pedestrians to cross. With the need for all cars to slow down, it is safer for a cyclist to navigate an intersection. Another point for reducing traffic signals in low intensity situations is the avoid civil disobedience. I have noticed an increase in drivers ignoring red lights in situations where no other traffic or pedestrians were within view, especially very late at night. In my opinion, it would be a really good idea for Ottawa city staff to think of roundabouts before traffic signals are contemplated and to review situations where roundabouts could easily replace them. In addition, many of the advantages listed above are valid for stop signs as well. Instead of adding stop signs everywhere, think of roundabouts first. I have observed that roundabouts are appearing here and there, but far too few. There may be other advantages and/or disadvantages - maybe others could write about them? Chris Snoek Stittsville

Horse show at Westar Special to the News


Julia Macangus guides Huggs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Kisses, a pony owned by Westar Farms of Goulbourn, over a jump. Westar Farms is holding the final of three horses shows this Saturday, Sept. 15, with over 100 horses and rides competing in a variety of classes.

EMC news - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Steele Family Dual Slalom. And the Valley Veterinary Clinic Jumper Derby. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the Hunter Derby. These are three of the most spectator â&#x20AC;&#x201C;friendly and anticipated events in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jump Into Fallâ&#x20AC;? bronze level horse show that is being held this Saturday, Sept. 15 at Westar Farms on Fernbank Road west of Stittsville. Take the Steele Family Dual Slalom. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new class this year so just this fact alone will make it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;must seeâ&#x20AC;? for everyone. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it will work: two rides at a time will go head-to-head over parallel courses of identical jumps. The first rider across the finish line will advance to the next round. This format will continue under a winner is declared. It will all get underway about 11 a.m. and should not be missed. Now the Valley Veterinary Clinic Jumper Derby, which will see $1,500 in prize money awarded, is a little different but no less exciting. Competitors will try to jump â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean,â&#x20AC;? that is, with no jumps knocked down and no time faults. Some of these obstacles will be brightly coloured while others will be more natural in appearance, just like you might find in the countryside with its fence rails, logs, banks and hills. This Jumper Derby will be a two round event with competitors with no faults in the first round moving on to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;jump offâ&#x20AC;? where they will try to have the fewest faults while recording the fastest time. This is a great event to watch and even a better one for cheering. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Hunter Derby which will start mid-afternoon. Using two show rings, this Derby will see the top scoring horses from a first round moving on to a second round. The highest combined performance score is the winner. A good indication of the excitement of these events in the jumper rings is that Rogers TV

will be onsite filming these events to be shown on TV at a later date. A total of four show rings will be up and running throughout the day this Saturday, Sept. 15, starting at 8 a.m. and going through until 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. Admission is free and refreshments will be available on site. Those planning to take in some of the action should take along a lawn chair for comfortable viewing. There are also bleachers. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jump into Fallâ&#x20AC;? bronze horse show is the third and final of three horse shows being held this year at West Fars. Over 100 horses and riders will be competing this Saturday in a variety of classes. The hunter classes will be judged on style and performance while speed and agility with the fewest faults (jumps knocked down) will determine the winners in the jumper classes. A bronze hunter jumper show, this horse show will include classes for both horses and ponies. Ribbons will be awarded to the top winners in every class with special awards to the champion and reserve champion of each division. High point prizes will also be presented to the top finishers in each division over the three shows of this series. Westar Farms Equestrian Training Centre is located on Fernbank Road just west of the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club. In addition to hosting competitions and training competitive riders, Westar Farms also offers a recreational riding lesson program for riders from eight years old up. Some riders eventually move on to the competitive program while others ride just for the love of horses and the enjoyment of a weekly lesson. For directions or information about the upcoming horse show or the equestrian programs at Westar Farms, check out the website www. or call 613-253-0078.

Alex Mironov wins couple of championships EMC news - The summer tennis season has wound down for Alexander Sasha Mironov of Stittsville but not before Alex chalked up a couple of championships. Alex won the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U14

and U16 junior champion titles in the Ottawa City Tennis Championship held at the Ottawa Lawn Bowling and Tennis Club. Alex has had quite a record in these championships over the past four years.

In 2009, he won the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U12 title. In 2010, he followed this up with victories in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U12 and also the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U14. Then, last year, he won the championships in both the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U18 and the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U14 categories. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy for Alex to win his two championships

this year. On Sunday, Aug. 19, he had to play five matches â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the semi-finals in both the U14 and U16, then the finals in the U14 and U16 categories and also a first round match in the adult open category. Alex won all five of these matches. Earlier this summer, Alex, who is 13, finished 11th in

Canada in the under 14 category at the Canadian junior tennis nationals in Mont Tremblant, Quebec. Alex, who graduated from A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary

School in Stittsville last June, is attending South Carleton High School in Richmond now. He trains two to three times a week in the off-season at Carleton University. R0011243339

Get into fall spirit at new art exhibition John Curry

EMC news - Goodbye, summer. Hello, fall. And there’s no better place to get into the fall spirit than the new “Fall Fantasy” exhibition at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery in the foyer area of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) on Shea Road in Stittsville. About one-third of the 27 pieces of art, mostly paintings, on display feature specific fall scenes. “Morning Sun at Cache Lake,” an oil on canvas board, is another Algonquin Park scene done by Stittsville artist Patrick Mason who has a great love for such scenes and spends a lot of time at Algonquin Park, the subject of many of his paintings. This one features fall reds and greens along with blue water and a blue sky. It’s iconic Canadian landscape painting at its best. Just above it on the gallery wall is another painting capturing a classic Canadian landscape scene. Entitled “Pink Lake, Gatineau Park,” Jan Inniss’ oil painting shows Pink Lake framed by trees. Art doesn’t get any more Canadian than this. “Checkered Sky,” a photograph by Patrick Bourke, is eye-catching as it has caught a fall sky filled with baby puffy clouds over a lake. The red-treed shoreline is spectacular but it has nothing on this blue sky just jam packed with small white clouds, looking like cotton balls. An awesome fall scene, to be sure. Stittsville artist Vera van Baaren uses browns and yellows to portray a walking trail through a forested area. And what makes this more noteworthy is that the trail is right here in Stittsville, hence the painting’s name “Am-

berwood Trail.” The acrylic “A Fall Storm” done by Richmond artist Salena Richard portrays fall not in a tranquil state like Patrick Bourke’s “Checkered Sky” but in a more ominous depiction, with dark, angry-looking water in the foreground and topped with a dark, foreboding sky. Stephen Harrison’s photograph on dye-infused aluminum, “Fall in Montreal” has a clarity and sharpness to it that just draws the eye. It is a close-up of the lights of an iron lamppost surrounded by the changing leaves of autumn. Lise Scott’s acrylic “Fall Colours,” wide but not high, shows birches in the fall, set against a blue sky. Ana Maria Rutenberg’s watercolour “Grove 3” features a forest of tree trunks but with lots of colour, a Rutenberg trait. So there’s red, green, yellow all brightening up the scene. It’s a feel good scene. “Canadian Maples,” a mixed media creation by Sheila Turner Whalen, has a fall feel to it because of its focus on maple leafs, both red and yellow. And what is more Canadian and, really, a true indictor of fall than a maple leaf. And while the exhibition is entitled “Fall Fantasy,” there is much in it that may not be fallbased but sure would brighten up any home, be it in fall or any other time of the year. Alain Bernard’s acrylic of a rooster and hens could send a “cock a doodle do” through the halls of any home. Its size is such that the rooster almost appears real. Stittsville artist Mark Grasza, who currently has two of his War of 1812 depictions on display at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library, both of which have many human forms ranging from natives to British to American troops, shows this expertise with the human figure and faces in his large oil painting

“Previe Council in Small City” with its 16 people sitting and standing around a table. There is detail galore in the painting, from a picture of the Queen looking down over the proceedings to flags. Another painting that stands out, not only because it also is large but also because of its detail, is “Still Life with Bottles,” an oil on canvas done by Stittsville’s Gerald Smith. Six green bottles are featured, along with three yellow fruit. Abstract paintings can be found in this latest owaa exhibition. Tammy MacAllister’s oil “Farmer’s Field” features brown, green and blue horizontal brush strokes, conveying in this simplest of ways the scene described in the painting’s title. Soraya Silvestri “Zizi” shows “Our Place” is an abstract way, using reds and greens with the painting ranging from dark to light at the top. Aud Karin Sund’s abstract acrylic “Emergence” features a circle focus, like a tornado whirling around. And then there is Sandy Woods’ mixed media abstract “Moving on Down the Line” in which squares are common. Kathy McClure of Richmond has a mixed media painting called “Transformation” which has a collection of shapes, depicted with brown and darker colours for the most part. And then there’s other paintings that are interesting, no matter what the season or the style. Louise Barker’s oil “Old Quebec Homestead” gives the feeling of home. You’d love to be there as fall changes to winter. Josie Braden’s watercolour “Some Blooms” is a soft representation of a bouquet of blooms in a container. It’s tranquil and soothing in its appearance.

Roseanne Facchin’s large acrylic “Tranquility” showing water, a tree line and sky presents the scene from a unique perspective, like looking up an alley. Sheila Murphy’s acrylic “Majestic Rockies” almost has the look of a photograph but it isn’t but rather is a detailed painting showing the Rockies in the background with a placid lake in the foreground, with a shoreline view down through the lake’s crystal clear waters. Going international, Inge J. Whelan’s “In Tuscany” oil painting shows a chateau-like house in the background, with a foreground of pointed trees. One of the most iconic Canadian scenes is Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia and this exhibit has a painting entitled just that, “Peggy Cove.” An oil on canvas done by Mike Goguen, it is a bright painting, with the famous lighthouse standing on guard amid the whitest of rocks, with the sky above blue with clouds. Donna Wiegand’s “Purple Coneflowers” oil painting features five big blooms. If you like flowers, you will love this painting. Terry Sametz has two wood creations in the exhibit, both oil on birch. One, “Tropic of Cancer,” features a vertical wood grain while the other, “Twilight Zones,” has a horizontal wood grain. Stittsville photographer Sylvie Sabourin has a small photograph in the exhibit. “Untitled,” this black and white photo shows a manor house with a entranceway through its stone wall perimeter. This exhibition “Fall Fantasy” will be on display at the owaa gallery at the GRC in Stittsville from now through until Saturday, Oct. 27. Located on two walls in the foyer of the GRC, the owaa gallery is open for viewing whenever the GRC itself is open.

Mike Goguen’s ‘The Flood’ gets People’s Choice nod

EMC news - “The Flood” was the People’s Choice in the “Did You Say HOT” exhibition which ran at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) through July and August. This oil on canvas painting

by Mike Goguen attracted the most votes from those who submitted an entry in the People’s Choice balloting for the exhibition at the gallery. “The Flood” showed an air ship floating above a flooded world, with an arching rainbow adding to the scene. Close behind “The Flood” in the People’s Choice balloting was Donna Wiegand’s gi-

ant poppy floral. Third place in the People’s Choice voting went to Stephen Harrison for his photographic work on dye-infused aluminum entitled “Party Drink” And now that the voting is over for the “Did You Say HOT” exhibition since it has now been dismantled, the People’s Choice voting is now underway for the new “Fall

Fantasy” exhibition which opened last Saturday and will be at the gallery until Saturday, Oct. 27. This People’s Choice balloting provides an opportunity for those who view the artwork on display at the owaa gallery to indicate which piece of art on exhibit is their favourite.

And what’s the deal? Just this – all adults books are being sold at half price and, don’t’ forget, these are books whose price is already dirt cheap. And, as another great deal, all children’s books will be going on the basis of five for only one dollar. You can’t beat these deals. And while you are getting these great deals on books, you will be helping out the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association whose volunteers run the “A Good Read” book store.

The local Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association volunteers are involved with the Goulbourn-Rideau District Libraries which covers five library branches – Stittsville, Richmond, Munster, Manotick and North Gower. These branches also contribute to the overall revenues raised by this group of the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association.

Jock River Canning Co. to be at Richmond Fair

EMC news - Balsamic strawberry. Kiwi daiquiri. These are two of the homemade fruit jams which the Jock River Canning Co. makes and will have on sale at this year’s Richmond Fair. Oh, yes, there’s also the more traditional fruit jams like blueberry, cherry, peach, raspberry, strawberry and blackberry. And also the unique strawberry banana jam. And then there’s the jellies – apple, red pepper, grape, zinfandel and even spiced cranberry orange. And don’t forget the wine jellies – Chardonnay and Merlot. All in all, the Jock River Canning Co. has 20 jams, jellies and even chutneys (apple, peach, rhubarb and cranberry) for sale, all in 250 ml jars. What makes these Jock River Canning Co. jams and jellies appealing is that these are all made much like your grandmother would have made, using natural ingredients and created in small batches where quality can be maintained. Blair Moodie of Twin Elm overlooking the Jock River just outside Richmond and Terry Howie are partners in this new enterprise which began in earnest earlier this year. Blair himself has been

canning for a decade and before that had always seen his mother and grandmothers canning over the years. So he knows what he is doing when it comes to canning. His personal canning had come to the notice of some of the parents of the home day care which he operates in his home. They saw the jams and jellies as ideal as gifts for teachers and party occasions. Up until this point, he had done enough canning for his own use but the interest expressed by the parents showed him that there was a demand for such homemade products and the business idea developed from there. He handles all the production while his partner Terry Howie looks after marketing. His idea in this, the initial year for the Jock River Canning Co., was to sell the products at various farmers’ markets but a hectic year this year prevented this. However, there’s always next year for this kind of marketing. Right now, the Jock River Canning Co. has the Richmond Fair coming up this weekend. In addition, orders from weddings and birthdays and even Christmas are flowing in, so Blair has lots to keep him busy right now. He does all of the canning right in the kitchen of his home, doing the jams and jellies in micro-catches. On av-

erage there are about 16 jars in such a batch. A micro-batch takes from 45 minutes to an hour to produce. It involves a lot of stirring and watching to ensure that everything goes alright. Blair points out that because of the sugar in the recipes, burning can easily happen if a close eye is not kept on the process. He likes doing it in such micro-batches because he has more control of the outcome. Larger batches might result in less quality control, something which Blair does not want. Calling the business the Jock River Canning Co. comes not only because Blair’s home is right beside the Jock River at Twin elm but also because the name has a professional and business-like sound. Blair says that all Jock River Canning Co. products have no ingredients with those long names. Rather, the ingredients are for the most part simple and traditional – fruit, sugar, lemon juice and pectin. Blair says that the Jock River Canning Co.’s products sell themselves as people like the fact that it is homemade in the traditional way with natural ingredients. Although people no longer have the time to do their own canning, they like to enjoy products that are made just like their grandmothers and mothers made them.

Eventually the Jock River Canning Co. would like to have its products in specialty stores, increasing its sales. However, even when production increases, Blair will keep doing the jams and jellies in small micro-batches and will continue to use natural ingredients, used in the traditional way.

The Jock River Canning Co. will be selling its homemade jams and jellies in the Richmond Curling Club building at this year’s Richmond Fair at the Richmond fairgrounds this Friday, Sept. 14, Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 16. Dropping by earlier rather than later to purchase some might be

wise as Blair’s dream is having a big “Sold Out” sign up on the Sunday. Whether this dream comes true or not remains to be seen but given the positive response which Jock River Canning Co. products have generated to date, don’t be surprised that the products will be flying off the table at this year’s Fair.

Ground breaking held for new MVC building Special to the News


In front of a giant billboard of the new Mississippi Valley Conservation Centre, the new headquarters building for Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC), at the ground breaking ceremony for the project on Wednesday, Sept. 5 are, from left, Frank Argue of Argue Construction, project management; Myra Van Die, MVC staff dealing with water resources; Phil Sweetnam, MVC Board member; Paul Lehman, MVC general manager; Shawn Argue of Argue Construction, project management; and Malcolm Wildeboer of Vandenberg & Wildeboer Architects, project design. All are residents of the Stittsville area and all are engineers except for the architect.

EMC news - The Mississippi Valley Conservation Centre is now formally underway. A ceremonial ground breaking ceremony for this new office home of Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) happened on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at the site in Roy Brown Park in Carleton Place as construction is already underway, with some framing already erected as dignitaries and Board members and officials participated in the ceremony. The new building, designed by Ralph Vandenberg of Vandenberg & Wildeboer Architects, features a low impact environmental design as well as “green” features where possible. The building will reflect the heritage of the Mississippi watershed with the use of natural products such as wood and stone. Future plans for the site include the creation of interpretive trails throughout the remaining acerage, providing both environmental education and outdoor health and wellness opportunities. The building itself is meant to become an environmental resource hub as well as interpretive site and a public meeting space in addition to housing MVC staff. At this new site in Carleton Place, MVC staff are going to be more accessible to a larger population than the staff is at its current office in the village of Lanark. Argue Construction Ltd. is the construction manager for the project. The MVC is one of 36 conservation authorities in the province. Stittsville businessman Phil Sweetnam is a longtime Board member of the MVC as one of the city of Ottawa’s representatives. The MVC has jurisdiction over the Mississippi River watershed including the Carp River into which Poole Creek in Stittsville drains.

A recent investment by a family owned company is making business news in Eastern Ontario. NOCO Canada, a family owned and locally operated company has been serving Canada’s energy needs for decades. The company is leveraging their rich heritage in the business with an expansion of their fuel and lubricant operations into the Trenton and Ottawa areas. As a proud Esso and Mobil branded reseller, NOCO supplies heating oil, gasoline, diesel, and lubricants to serve residential, farm, commercial, and industrial customers. “With almost eighty years of experience in the energy business, we are honoured to have the opportunity to serve the hard working consumers of this region,” noted Mark Yeatman, General Manager of NOCO Fuels Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of NOCO Canada. With this expansion, NOCO has established more local offices to efficiently and safely deliver high-quality products at competitive prices. With office locations in Toronto, Trenton, Ottawa and Pembroke, NOCO simplifies access for their customers by allowing them to get all of their products from one place. One major change customers will see is the elimination of a national call center. By establishing local offices and working with local personnel, NOCO is keeping business local and investing in communities. Other improved operations include online ordering and automatic payments, with online billpay coming soon. NOCO’s customers can expect the prompt, courteous, and dependable service they deserve. As the second largest Mobil distributor in North America, NOCO’s expansion has created a stronger product mix to more completely serve their customers. The company provides a full line of Mobil lubricants for automotive, fleet, industrial, metalworking, and specialty needs. NOCO also offers a used oil recycling program in some areas to make sure that businesses never need to worry about the proper collection, transportation, and processing of the waste they generate. “We believe the addition of the new products and new geography allows NOCO to address unmet consumer needs in the territory. Along with our key product brands, Mobil and Esso, we offer excellent service and local personnel. Our distribution model is strong and this new venture will provide strong value to the consumers throughout the region,” said James D. Newman, President of NOCO Canada.

Free glassses with no catch! John Curry



Jacki Culp, optical manager at Loblaw Optical at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville, stands beside a giant sign along Stittsville Main Street advertizing the free glasses for children aged 4-10 program which is now underway at Loblaw Optical.

EMC news - When you hear about something being given away free, you immediately think about what is the catch or hitch to the offer. After all, you just do not get things for free. But Loblaw Optical at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer is giving away something for free these days and there is no catch to it; there is no purchase required; it’s the free giveaway of glasses for youngsters. Jacki Culp, the optical manager at Loblaw Optical at Brown’s YIG, explains that this is a national program initiated by Loblaw Optical that will provide free glasses to children aged 4 to 10. “There is no hitch,” she says, other than two simple requirements. One is that the child must have had the eyes tested within the last 90 days. And the other is that action on this offer must be taken by Saturday, Sept. 22 when the offer ends. The requirement to have an eye examination within the last 90 days is in place simply to ensure that the child’s eyes are healthy. The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers the cost of annual eye examinations for children, so having such an eye exam should not cost parents anything. Eye examinations for young children are important because any eye problems, if discovered early in life, can usually be corrected easily. Data reveals that one in six children has a vision problem but only 20 percent of children have an eye exam before the age of 5.

This free glasses offer for youngsters, which began on Aug. 4, runs until Saturday, Sept. 22. Loblaw Optical, which currently has its outlets in 120 Loblaw or Loblaw-related stores across Canada, decided to launch this program offering free glasses for children aged 4 to 10 in response to the Ontario provincial government initiative to provide free eyeglasses to children entering junior kindergarten. Loblaw Optical decided to improve upon this government initiative by implementing a program at its outlets across Canada, not just in Ontario, and also by enlarging the age bracket of eligible children to include youngsters from the age of 4 right up to age 10. These are custom-measured and made glasses which would normally retail for about $110 and they are being provided free. The frames can be either $19 or $29 frames while the lenses are single vision “kids safe” lenses. What a deal! Ms. Culp at Loblaw Optical at Brown’s YIG is hoping to give out a lot of free eye glasses to children in the community. But just remember that the free glasses offer ends on Saturday, Sept. 22. Loblaw Optical at Brown’s YIG is open seven days a week and Ms. Culp is there Tuesday through Saturday, ready to take all the required measurements and ensure that free glasses are provided to those youngsters aged 4 to 10 who have had an eye exam within the past 90 days. Now, if an eye exam has not been done recently and is needed, Loblaw Optical does do eye exams on site by appointment. And remember, the cost of such eye exams is covered by OHIP>

Labour Day bake sales raise $506.82 John Curry


Holding up signs thanking residents of Stittsville for their generous and overwhelming support of their bake sales for the Humane Society which they held at three locations in Stittsville on Labour Day afternoon, Monday, Sept. 3, raising $506.82 in total, are Stittsville youth, from left, Rochelle Moore, Rebecca Frost, Caroline Frost who is in front along with her dog Farley who is a rescue dog from the Humane Society, Justin Paoloni and Jasmine Paoloni. Missing from the picture are Shanice Baird and Erin Husband.

EMC news - Labour Day in Stittsville was a great day for the Humane Society. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because bake sales in support of the Humane Society held by seven local youth at three different locations in the community raised a total of $506.82. The seven youth, all friends, who organized these bake sales, did the baking for them and then staffed the three locations on Labour Day afternoon are Caroline Frost, Rebecca Frost, Jasmine Paoloni, Justin Paoloni, Shanice Baird, Rochelle Moore and Erin Husband. The bake sales were held at Par-La-Ville Park in the Fairwinds subdivision; at Bryanston Gate Park in the Bryanston Gate subdivision; and on Abbott Street along the Trans Canada Trail where people take their dogs for walks. Besides baked goods, the sales also had juice and lemonade available. The seven youth are very thankful and grateful to residents of the Stittsville community for their great support of the sales. All of the $506.82 raised is being donated to the Humane Society, an organization that is near and dear to the heart of 12 year old Caroline Frost who ďŹ rst began Labour Day fundraising for the Humane Society four years ago, starting with a lemonade stand and a few baked goods. Here ďŹ rst such effort raised about $20. The funds raised grew to about $50 the next year and then last year, when more of her friends got involved and two different neighbourhood venues were used, almost $150 was raised for the Humane Society. But this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort topped out at over $500, the best ever, thanks to better advanced planning including a written out plan, thanks to the experience from the past years that showed what items sold best and thanks to better coordination, signage, promotion and hard work. Caroline Frost, incidentally, has both a cat and dog who are rescued pets obtained through the Humane Society which is why she is such a supporter of the organization.

Richmond Fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history goes back to 1844 John Curry

EMC news - The annual Richmond Fair traces its roots back to 1844 when the County of Carleton Agricultural Society was organized, with the Honourable James Skead as first president. These first fairs or exhibitions were held at Bells Corners, with a fairgrounds having buildings developed over the years. It was doing quite well until the Central Canada Exhibition began at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa in 1888. Attendance at the Bells Corners site dipped, while the Central Canada Exhibition prospered. This brought about a decision to move this county fair from Bells Corners to Richmond to the present-day location which was then known as Goodwood Park, owned by Hugh Rielly of the nearby Rielly House hotel, who rented the Goodwood Park annually for the Fair days. Despite rainy weather, something which would become a tradition regarding the Richmond Fair, this first Fair in Richmond drew a great crowd and its tenure in Richmond looked rosy. Structures on the fairgrounds in these early years in Richmond included the Agricultural building which was torn down in 1979 to make way for the new Richmond Curling Club building; a grandstand and band shell; a show ring; a race track; a secretaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office; and a dining hall. Horse barns, slope-roofed structures, were built in a continuous line from the rear of the present arena northward to

the current gateway entrance along the Huntley Road. The pig and sheep building was located near where the present â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old McDonald Farmâ&#x20AC;? building stands today. Attendance at the Richmond Fair had been dwindling in the early years of this century, and by 1919, things did not look so good for the Fair, which had become largely a local rather than county attraction. However, the Richmond Fair then became the location for the finals of school fairs from across Carleton County. This brought back the crowds, and by 1927, the Agricultural Society was able to purchase the 17 acre fairgrounds from Hugh Rielly for $2500. Later, new stables were built at the rear of the fairgrounds. A new grandstand, erected in 1934, was destroyed by fire in 1973. In 1944, the 100th anniversary of the Agricultural Society was held, with the Honourable George Dunbar, a native of Richmond, opening the Fair and dedicating a cairn and flagpole at the front of the fairgrounds. Cement block ticket offices at the walk-in and drive-in entrances on Perth Street were erected to commemorate this 100th anniversary. One of these cement block gatehouses was removed in the early 1980s, while the second one was removed in 1990. In 1949, the Honourable George Dunbar was present in Richmond again, this time to turn the sod at the site of the new $50,000 Richmond Memorial Community Centre building. This new building, which included a hockey rink and

an auditorium, stood on land donated by the County of Carleton Agricultural Society in return for the use of the building on Fair days. On September 1, 1950, the Richmond Memorial Community Centre, built in honour of Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroes killed in two World Wars, was opened at a ceremony attended by the Honourable George Dunbar. In 1950-51, the old Town Hall was purchased by the Agricultural Society and moved across Perth street to serve as a new dining hall. In this move, the lower floor of the two-storey building was removed. In 1957, the 4-H Club building was erected on the fairgrounds. From 1960 until 1980, this building was also the home of the Richmond Curling Club. In 1962, the Society purchased an adjoining 2.4 acres from Harold Brown for $2,000. On September 21, 1962, an historical plaque commemorating the Richmond military settlement was unveiled on the fairgrounds. In 1973, the name of the Agricultural Society was changed from the County of Carleton Agricultural Society to the Richmond Agricultural Society. In 1974, the old Richmond Memorial Community Centre was demolished and replaced by the current Richmond arena and community centre. In 1977, new bleacher seats to accommodate 500 people were purchased in lieu of rebuilding the grandstand. These seats could be moved around the fairgrounds to accommodate the crowd watch-

After the 1979 Fair, the Agricultural Hall, which had stood on its site for 84 years, was demolished to make way for a new Curling Club building. The Curling Club building is used for exhibits and displays during Fair days. In 1983, the Richmond Agricultural Society erected a new 60 foot by 120 foot barn on the fairgrounds. Two of the old barns were torn down to make room for this new barn. In 1989, the Agricultural Society installed new chain link fencing at the north end of the fairgrounds. In 1990, a new sign and gate proclaiming the Richmond

Fair was erected at the main entrance to the fairgrounds. This was when the second gatehouse at this entrance was removed. 1990 was the first year for the Farm Experience tent at the Fair. This is where displays of livestock, grain and forage crops and demonstrations, such as sheep shearing, take place. 1990 was also the first year for the holding of a demolition derby at the Richmond Fair. This has remained one of the most popular events at the Fair right up to the present. 1990 also was the first year for the holding of a Richmond Fair draw, with weekly early bird draws leading up to the

Fair. This raffle draw continues today. 1991 was the first year that parking for the general public was prohibited on the fairgrounds itself. Public parking was provided both east and west of the fairgrounds. 1993 was the first year for a lawn garden tractor and ATV pull at the fairgrounds. After the Fair in 1993, tile drainage was installed at the fairgrounds to help dry up the fairgrounds after wet weather. In 1994, a plaque commemorating 150 years of the Fair was unveiled as was a new logo for the Fair, designed by Heather Whitbread. See RICHMOND, page 34

Richmond Fair keeps improving Continued from page 33

In 1995, new washrooms were built at the Dining Hall building. In 1997, a new heavy horse ring was constructed, which was later followed by a new western horse show ring. A highlight of the 2004 Richmond Fair was the appearance and performance of the worldfamous Royal Canadian Mounted Police musical ride. The year 2005 saw the construction of a new 40 foot by 120 foot barn at the Richmond fairgrounds. The new barn was built west of the existing barns, near the intersection of the roadway leading in from the Huntley Road which runs in front of the existing barns and the roadway that runs along the west side of the light horse show ring. The barn was built for the use of both light horse show exhibitors and sheep exhibitors. The construction of this new barn was a first step by the Richmond Agricultural Society to improve the situation regarding the barns on the fairgrounds. Stalls were added to this new barn in time for the 2006 Richmond Fair. In 2006, the city of Ottawa approved giving a surplus fire tanker truck to the Richmond Agricultural Society. The fire tanker truck was a 1974 International Harvester tanker unit that was being replaced as part of the Ottawa Fire Services Fleet Replacement Program. The 32 year old vehicle was originally purchased by the former township of Goulbourn.

The Richmond Agricultural Society is going to use the tanker truck for dust control purposes at the annual Richmond Fair and for other events held at the Richmond fairgrounds. The year 2006 has also seen a major change not to the fairgrounds but to Perth Street running in front of the fairgrounds. A major reconstruction and rehabilitation of the street undertaken by the city of Ottawa has meant new pavement, new curbs and new sidewalks. It has also resulted in erection of a brand new fence across the Perth Street frontage of the fairgrounds. New Year’s Day in 2007 saw the inauguration of a “New Year’s Day Warm Up” at the Richmond fairgrounds, hosted by the Richmond Agricultural Society and sponsored by D.B. Sparling Cartage Ltd. The event featured free sleigh rides with refreshments such as hot cider and hot chocolate available. The year 2006 also saw the continued growth of the Fair’s miniature horse show, making it probably the largest such show in Eastern Ontario. The Richmond Fair was the first fair in the area to hold a miniature horse show, inaugurating it in 2001 (?). In 2007, just before the Fair, new windows were installed in the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds. Late in 2007, the Richmond Agricultural Society began the removal of the old heavy horse stable located immediately north of the newer and larger show barn on the fairgrounds. The barn had been used for the stabling of heavy horses in recent years but it was not used at

all for that purpose at the 2007 Fair. This was because the show barn, which was completely fitted with stalls, was able to accommodate up to 85 heavy horses. The barn, which was roughly 30 feet wide by 100 feet long, was leaning badly in recent years and was dark inside, making it difficult to use for heavy horse exhibitors. The old barn was taken down in stages, with the work going into 2008, with the tin removed from the exterior walls first. Then the old stalls were removed and the upper part of the barn was intentionally collapsed. The space that this old barn was occupying at the fairgrounds was used for the parking of horse trailers during the 2008 Fair. The removal of this old heavy horse stable still leave three older barns on the fairgrounds, along with the newer and larger show barn and the new barn erected in 2005. The year 2008 also saw the northern area of the fairgrounds dug up so that a sewer line could be extended from Huntley Road through the fairgrounds to serve the new Hyde Park development west of the fairgrounds. This work extended through several months in the late winter and spring. The Agricultural Society also took action to prevent severe leaking which had been occurring in the old curling club building. The round steel roof had its joints covered with an expandable material meant to prevent the leaks while also expanding and contracting with the steel roofing. The Agricultural Society is also looking at taking steps to repaint this roof since its paint is peeling after just three years. The Agricultural Society uses this old curl-

ing club building for commercial exhibits at Fair time as well as for storage purposes for the rest of the year. The front of the building is used as the Fair office. 2008 also saw a new announcer’s booth for the cattle ring thanks to the construction efforts of students at South Carleton High School in Richmond. The new booth was not completely finished for the 2008 Fair but it was used anyway. After the Fair, it was returned to South Carleton High School so that students could complete the project. SCHS students also previously constructed one of the wagons which are used to transport seniors around the grounds at Fair time. The 2008 Fair also saw the Agricultural Society combine the heavy horse and light horse rings for the Sunday afternoon six horse hitch class for the heavy horse show. This worked so well that the arrangement was carried on in the 2009 Fair. Just before the 2009 Fair, the roof of the old curling club building housing the Fair office was repainted. The sign at the main gate was also re-done for the 2009 Fair, with the new green sign depicting scenes from many of the activities that go on at the Fair. The 2009 Fair also saw the Agricultural Society negotiate with the city of Ottawa for use of the Richmond Lions Park parking areas for free parking on both the Saturday and Sunday of the Fair. An admission gate was set up in the northwest corner of the fairgrounds adjacent to the Lions Park parking to allow for convenient and easy access to the fairgrounds for those parking at Lions Park.

‘World’s Fastest Hypnotist’ at Richmond Fair Special to the News

EMC news - Hypnotism will be in the air at the Richmond Fair this Saturday, Sept. 15. That’s when “The Hypnotizers,” billed as the “World’s Fastest Hyp-

notist,” will be at the outdoor stage, starting at 3 p.m. There is only one show by these so-called street hypnotists, so you will want to be there. Just before the show, hypnotists

Sean Michael Andrews and Kenda Summers will be at the Fair entrance demonstrating what street hypnotism is all about. Indeed, street hypnotism has been entertaining people since the 18th

century with such techniques as instant inductions and waking hypnosis. “The Hypnotizers,” thanks to their experience from corporate events, state fairs, private functions and, yes,

the street itself, present a show that people tend never to forget. Again, you will want to be there to see for yourself. Entertainment such as “The Hypnotizers” on the outdoor stage is free. Again, another reason why not will want to be there for this enjoyable show. It’s hypnotism at its most entertaining.

Villagefest coming up John Curry


Lasagna, anyone? Anne Morreale holds up a meal suggestion of lasagna and garlic bread at the M&M Meat Shops at the Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville as the eighth annual M&M Meat Shops National Family Dinner Night on Thursday, Sept. 20 approaches. Each year with this special event, M&M Meat Shops encourages Canadians to sit down to dinner as a family. Those planning to do this are urged to register because everyone who registers their intention to have a family meal on Sept. 20 will be automatically entered for a chance to win $500 in M&M Meat Shops gift cards. To enter, visit anytime up to Sept. 20 for a chance to win. Those registering also have the opportunity to make a donation to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada for which M&M Meat Shops is a major fundraising sponsor.

EMC news - It’s an annual celebration of the coming of fall, dating back two decades now. It is also a celebration of community and that’s why it is called Villagefest. This year Villagefest will be happening in Stittsville on Saturday, Sept. 29, running from noon to 5 p.m. at Village Square Park at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street in the heart of the village. It will once again feature a variety of activities including horse-drawn carriage rides and musical entertainment from groups such as the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and local bands. The Goulbourn Museum will be among the exhibitors, with craft activities for youngsters. Stittsville’s firefighters are holding a Villagefest pancake breakfast at the fire hall on Stittsville Main Street adjacent to the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library which will be a great way for families and others to kick off Villagefest Saturday. The pancake breakfast will run from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with everyone welcome. One of the highlights of this year’s Villagefest will be the 1 p.m. unveiling of a plaque at Village Square commemorating the Great Fire of 1870 which wiped out much of Stittsville as well as wreaked havoc and damage to a vast area of what was then Carleton County and beyond. This is a project of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. Community non-profit groups are welcome to set up displays and exhibits at Villagefest. Anyone interested should contact Stittsville Village Association (SVA) president Marilyn Jenkins at 613-8365075 or via email at The SVA is the body which organizes this annual Villagefest celebration.

Dylan Wright is Schoolboy Champion EMC sports - Dylan Wright of Richmond is the 2012 Canadian Schoolboy Motocross Champion. The 14 year old won the title competing against 39 other motocross racers from across Canada at

the Wiseco Amateur Grand National Motocross Championships in Walton, Ontario in mid-August. Ranging in age from 12 to 16, these racers all competed on 125cc dirt bikes. Dylan chalked up first place finishes in all three Schoolboy races to

earn the champion title in that class. Besides winning this 2012 Canadian Schoolboy Championship, Dylan was also selected from the hundreds of racers at the championship event as the recipient of the DMX Total Devotion Award. Direct-

have helped Dylan along the way. “It’s wonderful to see the motocross industry – Yamaha Canada, FOX Canada, EKS brand goggles and Hindle Exhaust Systems – investing in amateur athletes and helping to grow the sport of motocross in Canada,” said Bill Wright, Dylan’s father. “Our family was also very fortunate to have local individuals and businesses such as MX101, Sand Del Lee Motocross Park, Gourlay Performance Products, Clarke Mechanical, the Medaglia family, REV Sports Performance, Superior Suspension Settings and Pure Stream supporting a local kid who is striving to excel in this physically demanding, costly but very exciting sport,” he adds. And it’s not over for Dylan. He is already setting his sights on next year’s titles in both the Canadian and American amateur national motocross championships. He is also looking forward to the opportunity to race against the motocross pros as an amateur intermediate rider.


Dylan Wright of Richmond has received the DMX Total Devotion Award from DirectMotocross. com, a popular online motocross magazine.

Kanata Vacuum & Sewing Centre 471 Hazeldean Rd., Kanata 613-831-2326 (DMX) is a popular online motocross magazine. The DMX Total Devotion Award carries with it a prize consisting of a week at one of the PerformX California motocross training camps. The award goes to the racer at the Canadian Amateur Grand National Motocross Championships who shows promise, the ability to overcome adversity and an undeniable devotion to the sport of motocross. “Dylan put in some great rides, overcame some adversity and showed a great attitude all week to put him in the top spot for this award,” said Kyle Carruthers, president of DMX. Billy Rainford, senior editor of DMX, said that Dylan was the most deserving rider for the prize while noting that he also is a 90 percent grade student. Some of the adversity which DMX president Kyle Carruthers referred to came when a mechanical failure prevented Dylan from finishing one of his races. However, he still managed to place fifth in an MX2 intermediate class. At these championships, Dylan also raced in the Mx3 intermediate class where he finished second, only one point behind the winner. So, it was quite a championship for Dylan – winning the national Schoolboy championship, finishing second in the MX3 intermediate class and fifth in the MX2 intermediate class. The winner of each class in these championships was determined by the combined score of results in three separate races. This means that consistency was key to achieve success. And consistency comes from a combination of skill, talent, training, quality motocross equipment and, yes, a little luck. Dylan had all these as he reached the podium in eight of his nine races. Dylan and his family realize that while Dylan’s rigorous training and hard work contribute to his success on the motocross track, this success is also the result of the support of the many individuals and companies that

Marshmallow man, duct tape wallet mond Fair. There is always a voluminous display of Junior Division entries in the Curling Club building at the Fair and this year will be no different.

EMC news - A marshmallow man. A button necklace. A spider web. A water-bottle animal. A Lego vehicle. A homemade pizza. A duct tape wallet. What a varied and some might say weird assortment of items. But these and more, covering 49 different classes, will be on display in the Junior Division of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rich-

orated for a paperweight, a ďŹ nger painting on Bristol board, a Christmas themed mailbox made out of a Kleenex box and including a letter to Santa Claus, a wooden spoon decorated to look like a scarecrow, a funny photo mounted on a coloured paper with a border, a Canadian ďŹ&#x201A;ag created with dyed and dried noodles, a hand drawn favourite cartoon character, a wanted poster of yourself or a friend, a clay sculpture, a turkey ďŹ gure made out of vegetables, a soap

sculpture, a funny sentence made out of candy wrappers and an illuminated initial. And then there are the classes for a marshmallow man, a spider web, a Lego vehicle and more. Just who thinks up all of these classes? But it makes for great fun, not only in doing them but also in viewing them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most interesting displays at the annual Fair. You should make sure that you take a view of it at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair. The Junior Division at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Fair is being organized by a committee under the chairmanship of Laura Robertson, with Patty Smith as vicechair.

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty Everyone knows the creative process can be rewarding and fulďŹ lling for adults without being messy. But, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it: sometime getting your hands dirty is half the fun. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just for kids anymore. Whether you want your creativity to be mucky and yucky, or clean and pristine, there is bound to be something interesting near you listed in the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recreation eGuide available at There is probably no better way to make a mess than through pottery. Artists at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre produce more than 50,000 pieces of art each year. This year, some of them can be yours. Think about Discovering Your Voice in Clay, Sculptural Handbuilding or maybe a Wheel and Hanbuilding Combo.

Special to the News

EMC news - A Richmond Village Association (RVA) director is incensed that there are no plans to install traffic signals at the corner of Perth Street and Shea Road with the imminent opening of the new shopping area there. Writing on the Richmond Facebook Page, RVA director Heather Martineau calls the lack of traffic signals at the intersection â&#x20AC;&#x153;insane,â&#x20AC;? citing the danger for young people who will be crossing Perth Street at

this location to go to the new shopping area which will include a Tim Hortons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does the city seriously believe that there will not be a huge increase in traffic at that location once Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opens,â&#x20AC;? she queries on the Facebook Page. She calls for action to spur city action on traffic signals at this location, urging people to email city of Ottawa RideauGoulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt or to talk to him at his booth at the upcoming

Richmond Fair about the situation. A traffic review of the intersection convinced city of Ottawa officials that there was no need for such traffic signals. The main entrance to the new shopping area is off Perth Street farther east than Shea Road and so the traffic increase at the Shea Road/Perth Street intersection will not be that great. The new shopping area will be home to a new Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valu-mart grocery store and a Tim Hortons.

Councillor meetings John Curry

EMC news - City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt will be at the Richmond Fair this coming weekend, meeting and chatting with ward residents as they visit the Fair. But councillor Moffatt wants to do even more meeting and chatting with ward residents and so he has set up a series of ten community town hall meetings throughout the ward over the next two months. At these meetings, councillor Moffatt will give an update on what has been happening on the city of Ottawa scene and in the ward in the past two years since the municipal election in Nov. 2010. In addition, he will also be there to listen to any concerns or issues that residents have and that he should be addressing in the second half of his four-year mandate as the ward councillor. Councillor Moffatt is hoping that as many

residents as possible turn out for these community town hall meetings, each of which will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. In Goulbourn, there will be meetings in Richmond, Munster, Ashton and Country Club Village. The community town hall meeting in Richmond will be taking place this coming Wednesday, Sept. 19 in the upper hall at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre (arena). The meeting in Munster will happen on Monday, Oct. 1 at the Munster Community Centre while the meeting in Ashton is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 18 at Christ Church Ashton. The meeting for Country Club Village will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. Other communities in the Rideau-Goulbourn ward where these meetings will be taking place include Kars, Burrittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rapids, Manotick, Beckettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing, North Gower and Fallowfield.

Newsletters This week, I am sending out a newsletter to all residents in Rideau-Goulbourn. This newsletter mentions dates for upcoming town hall meetings that I will be hosting in the coming weeks and months. There are eleven listed on the newsletter but I will be adding one, likely in late November. This town hall meeting will take place at the Goulbourn Town Hall so that Rideau-Goulbourn residents in the Stittsville area are able to attend a meeting closer to their homes. Further, I just want to mention that many Stittsville residents will be receiving my newsletter that actually live in Ward 6. This is an issue seemingly without resolution as I have no choice but to mail to all of RR1 & RR3 Stittsville residents due to the unwilling cooperation of Canada Post.


If you have any questions, comments or concerns on these or any other issue, please contact me at 613-580-2491. You can also reach by at or on Twitter @ScottMoffatt21.

September 10th, 2012 Update on Wintergreen/Mulkins & Stittsville Main Traffic Signal I am happy to see the installation of the traffic light at Wintergreen/Mulkins & Stittsville Main Street at long last. It is a project that is long overdue and I know that the community has been looking forward to its installation. This new traffic signal will assist residents to exit from the Wyldewood community, as well as residents using the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena and Alexander Grove Park. Through continuing efforts and advocacy for this control signal, a positive result has emerged. I want to thank the City staff at our Traffic department in helping to see this project through. The community, including myself, has advocated for this traffic light for some time. Through a sustained effort and hard work by all parties concerned, it is wonderful to see positive results. Update on Traffic Roundabout - Fernbank & Shea As you may remember, the proposed work at this intersection includes the realignment of Shea Road and the addition of a roundabout was tentatively scheduled to start in the spring of 2012. The plans have been completed and City staff are working on negotiations to purchase the required lands. Unfortunately the negotiations are taking longer than hoped and this will result in the construction being pushed till the construction season next year. Other options of Park and Ride in the West End As students get back to school and summer vacation time comes to an end, our roadways and public transit system become increasingly busy. With this in mind, trying to find parking space at the Eagleson Park and Ride by 8am, could be challenging. At this time I would like to remind you that there are two other park and ride locations that offer additional parking; Terry Fox and Scotia Bank Place. The Terry Fox Park and Ride can accommodate 515 cars while Scotia Bank Place has 110 parking spots. Routes 261, 263, and 96 service Scotia Bank Place between the hours of 5:45 am and 6:30pm. The Terry Fox Park and Ride is located adjacent to Kanata City Walk Centrum Shopping Centre and Highway 417. Visit for more information. 9 Run Run Ottawa Emergency Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Run On Saturday October 20th the Ottawa Emergency Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are hosting their annual 9 Run Run event at Sacred Heart High School at 5870 Abbott Street. Thanks to the overwhelming support of race participants and the community, the 2011 9 Run Run was able to raise $25,911.11 in support of DIFD and The Royalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youth mental Health Awareness Study & Early Intervention Research Projectâ&#x20AC;?. I encourage all residents to come out and support our Ottawa Emergency Services by registering to walk or run, or by volunteering and cheering on the race participants! Registration closes on midnight, October 16th, 2012. For more information visit Nominations for the 2012 Ottawa Business Achievement Awards are now open! The Ottawa Business Achievement Awards recognize businesses in the community that have aided business development, entrepreneurship and increased economic growth in Ottawa. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award categories include: Nominations can be submitted online at by noon on October 4th 2012. Road safety a priority as children return to school As children head back to school, I would like to remind motorists to be cautious, drive safe and follow the rules of the road, especially near school zones and school buses. Ottawa Police Service will also be focusing on back to school road safety education and enforcement in the coming weeks. Walking or biking to school is a great way for students to get exercise! I encourage students to walk or bike to school to create more of a culture of active transportation in the city.



Maple Grove Road Construction Blasting As part of the upgrades to Maple Grove Road from Huntmar to Johnwoods Mattamy Homes will be undertaking blasting in some areas of the road to install the necessary services. Mattamy Homes has advised that that they are prepping for the blasting (drilling and stripping overburden) with the expectation to start blasting the first week of September. Once they start the blasting it will continue for up to 3 months depending on weather and progress. For more information please contact Daniel Potechin at Mattamy Homes at 613-831-3506 or daniel. . I am currently waiting for Mattamy Homes to provide a revised timeline for the entire construction project and when this is available it will be posted on my website. I have been advised that this project has not started within the timelines originally anticipated due delays in approval from various agencies.

Mother Sauce’s possibilities EMC lifestyle - Of all the millions of recipes that exist in cookbooks, there’s one which is found more often than any other. It appears in cookbooks published around the world - from Eastern Ontario to France to Australia. You probably have it in at least one of the cookbooks in your kitchen right now. The recipe is for a “Basic White Sauce”, and it’s made with three ingredients - butter, flour and milk. In France, they call it “one of the great sauces”, but they also have another name for it --the “sauce mere”, or “mother sauce”. And that’s probably the best name for this sauce because it’s the starting point for so many different recipes. It’s the key ingredient for dishes ranging from soups to souffles, from scalloped potatoes to Coquilles Saint-Jacques. It can be flavoured with cheese, herbs, mustard or wine, and served over vegetables, meat, poultry or fish. Although the basic white sauce has been used in both home and professional kitchens for years, it became a lot simpler to make with the introduction of the microwave oven. Now, the sauce is not only quick to prepare, but clean-up is a lot easier too, as you’ll know if you ever scrubbed burned milk off the bottom of a pot. The recipe that follows is for creamed salmon on toast, a convenient and quick supper dish. It starts with a medium white sauce, and you can use this basic sauce recipe for any other dish that calls for it. The microwave technique for cooking it is explained step-by-step.

Taste testing at meeting


Special to the News

Food ‘n’ Stuff Creamed Salmon on Toast 2 tbsp. butter or margarine 2 tbsp. flour 2 cups milk 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine 1/2 cup frozen peas 1/2 medium onion, chopped 2 cans (213 gm) salmon, drained salt, pepper to taste Use a microwave-safe bowl or a measuring cup that holds 4 cups. In the bowl, melt 2 tbsp. butter or margarine on High for 40 to 50 seconds. Stir in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. There’s no need to cook this mixture. Add the milk all at once, and stir well. Microwave on High, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes. During this time, stir the sauce once every minute, scraping around the bottom of the bowl to mix in all the flour paste. When the sauce is slightly thickened, cook it 1 to 2 minutes longer on High. This time, stir the sauce every 30 seconds to prevent lumps from forming and the sauce from boiling over. The sauce is done when it’s thickened and bubbly. If you’re going to use the sauce for another dish, stop reading now. If you’re making creamed salmon on toast, place the 1/2 tsp. butter, frozen peas and onion in a small microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook on High for 2 minutes. Stir the onion mixture and the salmon into the white sauce. Cook on High for 1 to 2 minutes longer, stirring every 30 seconds, to heat the salmon. To serve, spoon over toast. Use 1 or 2 pieces of toast per person. Serves 4.

EMC news - The upcoming September meeting of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society might best be termed “Harvestfest.” That’s because it is going to be an event dedicated to products of the garden – and products is being used in the widest sense possible. This “Gifts from the Harvest” meeting is being held this coming Tuesday, Sept. 18 starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Pretty Street Community Cen-

tre in Stittsville. All Horticultural Society members are encouraged to attend and visitors are most welcome, although there is a two dollar charge for nonmembers at Horticultural Society meetings. And just what will be happening at this “Gifts from the Harvest” meeting? There will be taste testing of a variety of jams, jellies, cookies, cakes and anything else made with produce from a garden.

But besides these edibles, people are being urged to bring along crafts such as wreaths, ornamental displays and photographs, for instance, that evolve from a garden. Those who are bringing the taste testing products are also being encouraged to have copies of the recipe involved to share with others. “Gifts from the Harvest” is meant to be a fun event with everyone welcome to attend. For more information, please call 613-836-7931.

Mini-storage complex proposed in Richmond Special to the News

EMC news - A mini-storage complex is being proposed for a site on the east side of McBean Street south of the railway line in Richmond. The complex, when built out, will include nine storage buildings with a total of about 3,700 square metres of storage space involved. There will be two entrances to the site off McBean Street.

An on-site storm water pond will be built at the north end of the site closest to Marlborough Creek. Existing vegetation at the rear of the property will be retained. A road allowance to allow for future access to the industrially designated lands to the rear of the site will be provided for on this site. The existing zoning on the site provides for the proposed use of a storage facility.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories EMC lifestyle - There was no doubt about it, Father needed a new suit. The only one he owned was threadbare, and even though he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grown an inch, the cuffs on the legs were above his ankles. No doubt because Mother had tried to wash it one Monday, and now even the sleeves were too short. No, there was no getting around it. He needed a new suit, and the ad in the weekly Renfrew Mercury was just what the doctor ordered! Three pieces for $14! Father said there was no money for such frivolity. Mother said going to the Lutheran Church on Sunday dressed like a tramp, raised the purchase well above frivolity! I knew Mother had waited until the big wood box of handme-downs had come from Aunt Lizzie in Regina to make sure there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be something suitable from Uncle Jack. But, as always, whatever Uncle Jack once wore, had to be severely altered before it would fit Father! Uncle Jack was about Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s height. But there the similarity ended. My sister Audrey said he looked like a pineapple. I have no idea how she knew what a pineapple looked like, because I never knew one to come into the house. But I did know Uncle Jack was more round than long! His arms were huge and hung well below his hips, and it always looked like he was carrying a bag of grain under his jacket. Without altering the suit, you could put at least two of Father in it. Now, Mother, when she moved to the farm out in Northcote, tried her best to master the old pedal Singer Sewing Machine. And she did well on simple things like clothes for Audrey and me, and making aprons, and even simple house dresses out of Dan River cotton, but when it came to trying to make Father fit into one of Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suits, she failed miserably. It always ended up that the suits, after being taken apart, became jumpers or skirts for my sister and me. The Mercury had come in the middle of the week, and Mother said there was just about enough money in the blue sugar bowl in the back-to-the-wall cupboard to buy the suit. What was lacking would be made up when Mother pedalled her eggs, butter and chickens on Saturday in Renfrew. And so it was decided, Saturday was the day Father would be getting his new $14 suit. The excitement ran high that week in our old log house in Northcote. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean we could ease off on the workload...chores were done as usual..morning and night in the barns, and Mother made sure my sister Audrey and I kept up with what was expected of us in the house too. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think we were all getting a new outfit, not just Father, as the day of this major purchase drew closer. Mother took the blue sugar bowl out of the cupboard a few days before we were to head into Renfrew. She dumped the coins out on the kitchen table with a couple

Blue sugar bowl sometimes lacking crumbled one dollar bills. Then she moved the money over to the top of the ice box, and stacked the coins in little piles on top of the bills. The blue sugar bowl went back into the cupboard. She figured sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to sell at least four chickens, five or six pounds of butter, and six dozen eggs to make up the difference between what was sitting on the ice-box and what the suit would cost. The day before we were to head into Renfrew, just before we were to sit down to dinner at noon hour, Father came into the kitchen with a long piece of harness in his hands. He stood silently at the back door, never taking his eyes off it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broke. Just as I was putting it on Queenie. This is the piece I have fixed at least a dozen times. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take another fixinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;... canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the team without it.â&#x20AC;? He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to say any more. Mother went to the ice box and slid the coins into her hand with the one dollar bills. She looked at it for a minute, and then walked over to the door and handed it to Father. It would take just about all of it to replace the worn-out harness that should have been replaced long before. Horses and their harness meant survival back in the 30â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. A farmer couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t farm without either. Nothing more was said about the $14 suit. We went into Renfrew as usual on Saturday for our few supplies, bought only after Mother made her house calls along the back streets of the town with the cleaned chickens, butter and eggs, and that day she had sticky buns as well.

Community effort, cooperation build arena Ian Colpitts, who was one of the leaders in the campaign to raise money and then build what is now the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena, has passed away at the age of 87. This story of widespread community effort and achievement is presented as a tribute to Mr. Colpitts, one of Stittsville’s true gentlemen whose community leadership helped bring about the community’s dream to have its own skating arena and hall.

plishment growing out of a concerted community fundraising effort and was debt free when it was finally completed and officially opened in October, 1973. The Palladium, which featured Canadian rock singing star Bryan Adams on its opening night, provided a National Hockey League caliber home for the Ottawa Senators who until then had played at the Ottawa Civic Centre, awaiting the construction of their new 18,000 seat arena. It was a major accomplishment growing out of a successful community effort of returning NHL hockey to Ottawa after an absence of over 50 years. It was far from debt free when it was opened in 1996. Hockey had been a traditional winter activity in Stittsville for decades, with Stittsville teams playing against teams from Richmond, Carp, Fitzroy Harbour and other local communities. An outdoor community rink had been a feature of the Stittsville community since the 1920’s but as the village grew in the post-War boom of the 1950’s, thoughts eventually turned to having a covered rink in the community. It was as early as February, 1961, just after the incorporation of Stittsville as a village municipality, that the executive of the Recreation Association in Stittsville looked to a covered rink for Stittsville as an answer to what was considered the inadequate rink facilities in the village at that time. The RA established two committees to study the situation. One committee headed by Ernie Moore was to study the costs of building such a covered rink. The other committee, headed by Perce McKinley, was to investigate grants which might be expected if the project were undertaken. However, there were competing interests and the RA executive agreed that the covered rink project might be put off for a while if the RA had to build a lighted softball diamond for the community. Softball was the other major sporting activity in the village, with 1961 just five years removed from the glorious time when a Stittsville team captured the provincial senior ball championship. But while the RA was studying and hesitating with regard to a covered rink for the community, The Stittsville News was much more forthright about what should be done. In an editorial in the Thursday, February

John Curry

EMC News – In 2011, it was renamed as the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena. But whether it is known as the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in honour of Stittsville sports enthusiast John Leroux or as the Stittsville District Community Centre, its former official name, or just as the plain old Stittsville arena, this facility in Stittsville is now entering its fifth decade of service to Stittsville and area residents. And its story, particularly how it was built thanks to the fundraising efforts of a community that numbered only a couple of thousand back in the late 1960’s, remains today a true inspiration and example to those who believe in the power of community effort and cooperation. Both the Stittsville and District Community Centre (now the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena) and Scotiabank Place (then known as the Palladium) have a special relationship with January 15th. This was the date on which both of these facilities opened, albeit with a quarter of a century in between the openings. The Stittsville and District Community Centre opened to the public for the first time on Friday, January 15, 1971 with the first skating taking place. The Palladium officially opened on Monday, January 15, 1996, 25 years later right to the very date. Both openings marked spectacular achievements. The Stittsville and District Community Centre provided the first indoor rink ever for the small but growing community of Stittsville with its 1600 residents. It was a major accom-

The Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena, formerly the Stittsville District Community Centre, opened in 1971 after a community fundraising and construction effort. 16, 1961 issue of The Stittsville News entitled “New Rink Needed”, the community newspaper was explicit about where it stood on the issue. The editorial read as follows: “Those connected with winter sports have been aware of the need of a covered rink in Stittsville for several seasons but perhaps the average citizen was unaware of the number of children using the present rink facilities until they tried to find standing room at the recent RA carnival. The RA executive and carnival committee are to be congratulated on the way the carnival was handled, hampered as they were with lack of space and facilities to handle the overflow crowd. The need for ice time has been relieved this season by the rental of ice in Richmond

for hockey in the Peewee, Bantam and Intermediate age groups but this should be looked upon as an emergency measure. It is impossible to develop a home-town following in a hockey league if all games must be played outof-town. Ninety boys between 6 and 14 are either members of an organized hockey team or hockey school and indications are it will be possible to have a house league in the younger ages next season. Intermediate hockey is no longer played in Stittsville as a team cannot carry out a schedule playing on an outdoor rink and opposing teams are reluctant to play under those conditions.

community rink behind what was then Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store and later Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cleaners was no longer available as a rink site. Plans were laid for the formation of a community centre committee which would immediately start working toward a new outdoor rink for the community. The only available municipal property for an outdoor rink was the McCoy Park site on Carleton Street behind the Stittsville ďŹ re hall near the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little League ball diamond. The community outdoor rink at this new site was operational in January, 1963, although mild weather had slowed down the ice making.

R0011395801 R0011300267

The boys are not the only ones looking for ice time. Miss Anne GrifďŹ ths and Miss Jocelyn Bradley led their ďŹ gure skaters in a display of fancy skating at the RA carnival and there is a large number of girls now interested in ďŹ gure skating and this number is rapidly increasing. The present rink facilities are not only inadequate but in poor repair and a great deal of work and expense would be required to carry out another winter program there. Would it warrant this expense or should Stittsville get behind an indoor rink to handle the greatly increased number

of youngsters in this village? We feel the point has been reached where the latter is the only logical solution.â&#x20AC;? Nothing, though, came of this initiative at that time but talk did persist in the community about a covered rink, either when shoveling the snow off the outdoor rink or in conversations with friends and neighbours. But something of a more urgent nature arose. The community needed a new site for its outdoor rink. In July, 1962, the Recreation Association in Stittsville had a lengthy discussion about available sites for a new rink for the upcoming hockey and skating season. The old, existing

Recreation Committee decided that any proceeds which it might earn from Centennial celebrations in the community would go into its â&#x20AC;&#x153;project fundâ&#x20AC;?. The MRC had been saving for a community project of some sort for the previous two years and while no speciďŹ c project had been identiďŹ ed, it had been decided that the funds would go to one community recreation project. Among the projects most frequently mentioned were a swimming pool, estimated cot cost about $20,000, or an arena which was estimated to cost about $100,000. The year 1967 was Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centennial Year and Stittsville, like most other communities across the country, held a series of Centennial events.

It surfaced again early in 1967 when the Municipal

‘Covered arena’ committee formed in November 1967 It was the success of Stittsville’s Centennial events and the community’s working together to make them successful that must be attributed to some degree in giving the community the confidence and spirit needed to take a further step and undertake a major project, namely the building of a covered rink. Indeed, it was in November, 1967, as the Centennial Year was drawing to a close, that a “covered arena” committee was formed by a group of interested Stittsville and area residents. Finally, the talk that had circulated in the community for at least the previous half dozen years came to fruition with the formation of this committee which came to be known as the Stittsville and District Community Centre Committee. The committee held meetings each Tuesday night in the village’s municipal office, with sufficient interest being shown in the idea that sub-committees were formed to investigate building costs, methods of raising funds and the cost of operation. These preliminary investigations indicated that the project was possible for Stittsville and its 1600 residents. Arguments used in favour of the new arena and community hall were that the facility would provide for weather-free skating for six months of the year instead of the two months provided by the existing outdoor facility; that Stittsville’s hockey teams would be able to enjoy pre-season practice facilities comparable to those found in other surrounding communities; that the facility would provide a nighttime destination for

entertainment and recreation for teenagers in the community; that the facility would be able to host dances, bingos, tennis, badminton, volleyball, basketball, trade shows, horticultural shows, dog shows and special events such as band concerts and fiddle contests; and the facility would be an alternative location for rained out community functions. A goal of $125,000 was set for a fundraising campaign for the new arena. The target established early on in the campaign was total involvement by the whole community so that when the project became a reality, each and every person would be able to say “I helped make this possible.” It was decided to have a year-round facility with both a rink and a hall, to be called the Stittsville and District Community Centre. Optimistically, the fall of 1968 was initially set as the target date for starting the project but only if the fundraising reached an appropriate amount. While the fundraising campaign got underway in early 1968, investigations had begun into finding a site for such a facility. A property committee was formed to look into possible sites. One prime consideration was that the site should be owned by the village or easily obtained by the village. Another consideration was the possible cost of site preparation. The idea was to get village-owned land which did not require much site preparation, thus saving money both on the site purchase and on its preparation. Other considerations at the time were that the site had to be able to accommodate a building 220 feet long by 100 feet wide, to provide parking for 100 or more vehicles, to

be accessible from more than one direction if possible and to be located away from Main Street so that there would be no problems created by parking along the Main Street. The property committee investigated six potential sites for the new Stittsville and District Community Centre. These were McCoy Park on Carleton Street behind the fire hall; Bell Memorial Park (the so-called V Bush) which was a five acre treed site at the south end of the village; the Ralph Street Park between Ralph Street and Pretty Street; the McCurdy property near the Goulburn Lanes Bowling Alley which is now part of the Wyldewood subdivision; Alexander Grove Park; and an area between Orville Street and the railway track in the vicinity of the Stittsville Foundry. The committee felt that the Orville Street site was the best as it was suitable from the standpoint of size, shape, location, site preparation, cost and roads. It was determined that title for the land could probably be obtained at no cost by exchanging other property owned by the village for this site. Stittsville village council was subsequently approached by the community centre committee which asked that the village undertake such a property switch, with this Orville Street site, which was zoned light industrial, to be used for the new Community Centre. But, lo and behold, village council would not agree to the committee’s proposal as it did not want to eliminate this property zoned light industrial since industrial promotion and development continued to be one of the council’s goals. However, village council did like

the idea of locating the new Community Centre in the vicinity of Alexander Grove and set about to obtain property owned by the Black family between Alexander Grove and Poole Creek. The community centre committee did give its support to this initiative. Village council obtained an option on the property and then purchased it in 1968, with those in the community coming to view it as a most suitable location for the new Community Centre. Adjacent to Alexander Grove, it would result in a combined area of over 12 acres in the heart of the village being used for recreation purposes. A well and hydro were already at the site while any new parking area could serve both the new Community Centre and the existing Alexander Grove Park. While the site for the new Stittsville and District Community Centre was being determined, the fundraising campaign started. It was kicked off with a ten dollar a plate Sportsman’s Dinner on March 25, 1968, with head table special guests including boxer Gale Kerwin, footballer Lou Bruce, Ottawa 67’s coach Bill Long and sportscaster Ray Boucher. The event raised $1,700 and the fundraising campaign was off and running in the community. The campaign, which would be sustained over the next three years, included a canvass of all homes in Stittsville, seeking pledges or donations; walkathons organized by the Stittsville District Lions Club; an auction sale organized by the Goulbourn/Stittsville Firefighters’ Association; funds raised by operating the village’s outdoor rink facility; a draw for a snowmobile; another

Sportsman’s dinner; a donation from the Young Orange Britons of $4,400, the proceeds from the sale of Alexander Grove to the village in 1966; a steer raffle; a pancake breakfast at the June Jamboree; the sale of concrete blocks in the building (All of the blocks were numbered, with blocks being sold to individual donors for $10 each. A certificate was issued and the donor’s name recorded); a chicken barbecue at the Grove, run by the Firefighters’ Association, after a CKOY Old Socks ball game; annual challenge hockey games between Elgin, New Brunswick and Stittsville; funds from the “Chatter Natters” a group of ladies on Ralph Street and Bradley Street headed by Jean Morris and Helen Warner who would meet for coffee, raising funds and also thinking up fundraising ideas (instead of chattering and nattering, they sewed, knitted, fixed and made things to sell to raise money for the project). They also had painting bees during the construction of the arena. The fundraising did not stop with the construction of the arena structure as there was still much finishing to be done. A clock was needed as well as artificial ice. Fundraising after the Community Centre opened in 1971 included a “Lap-a-Thon” involving Lloyd Maguire and Stittsville reeve Ab Black; a CKOY/locals exhibition hockey game; a winter carnival; another walkathon; a Ken Labelle/Jack Shirley challenge on Main Street; a Rough Riders/Lions Club exhibition hockey game; and another Sportsman’s dinner.

This Sportsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner was held in May, 1972 as the first major function in the new hall at the Stittsville and District Community Centre, with Ottawa Rough Rider coach Jack Gotta as the keynote speaker. The sale of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community Centre blocksâ&#x20AC;? at $10 each continued, with a major prize to be given to one lucky block purchaser at the arenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening in the future. Bert Nevers collected sponsors for 40 cents a lap and ended up raising $40 for the project when he skated 100 laps around the new ice surface. Mrs. Ian Colpitts and Mrs. Cyril Bennett pooled their Gold Bond stamps and acquired a new 30 cup percolator which they donated to the canteen for the arena. Clearing of the wooded site for the new arena began in July, 1969 when the fundraising campaign had reached the $50,000 mark. Work bees, which were to become a familiar part of the project, looked after the site clearing. Over 1,000 hours of volunteer work went into the cutting of the trees on the site and preparing the site for construction. Volunteers did most of the work of clearing the site and putting in the footings and foundation. Using volunteers plus donated equipment meant that the actual cost was only a small fraction of the estimated cost of $16,700 for the work. In the course of the volun-

teer work clearing the site, 500 cedar posts, six cords of pulp wood and a supply of lumber was produced. The posts and pulpwood were sold. There was sufficient lumber for the seating and for part of the rink boards for the new arena. By November, 1969, the site was cleared but not enough money had yet been raised to start the actual arena construction. The contract to supply and erect a building on the site, namely 240 feet long by 100 feet wide, with 18 foot high side walls, was $67,897. This meant another winter in Stittsville with an outdoor community rink. The fundraising, as of November, 1970, amounted to $60,865 which included $15,074 in personal and business donations, $455 from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chatter Natters Xmas Clubâ&#x20AC;?, $16 from a car wash, $24,183 from three years of walkathons, $885 from the sale of pocket books, $2,400 from the operation of the outdoor rink, $605 from the bridge club, $4,400 from the Orange Young Britons; $202 from the sale of Christmas trees; and other fundraising. The Goulbourn-Stittsville Firefighters Association participated in numerous functions to raise funds for the Stittsville and District Community centre. Firefighters took part in the annual walks, raising funds. The Firefighters Association held a chicken barbecue and ball game, raising $375. In May, 1970, volunteers

could be found at the site on Tuesday evenings and on Saturdays. In June, 1970, the stumps from the site had all been removed, taken to the Spratt Sand and Gravel pit on the Carp Road, all thanks to donated labour and equipment. July, 1970 saw the forms for the concrete foots installed by volunteers. These footings were poured in August, with the arena superstructure arriving from British Columbia in September. In November, 1970, construction work was well underway by Byers Construction of Winchester on the new arena with the block work nearly completed and the roof and walls being put in place, with the building being closed in by December. The rink boards were put in place, meaning the end of the outdoor rink era in Stittsville. . The first phase of the project consisted of the building complete with a natural ice surface and a concrete floor in the service area. There was also basic lighting, heating, plumbing and septic tank installation. This first phase of the project would bring a $20,000 provincial grant upon its completion. But with a cost of $97,938, this meant a shortfall of $17,000, so additional fundraising was being pushed. There was no money borrowed for the project. It is estimated that if money had had to be borrowed, the borrowing costs could have totaled about $10,000 per year.

Phase two of the project was the completion of the service area and upstairs 100 foot by 50 foot community hall as well as installation of an insulated concrete slab in the arena. Estimated cost of this work was $20,000, although the project would be eligible for another provincial grant, this time $15,000, upon completion of the work. In December, 1971, a Local Initiative Program federal grant of $17,433 for the Stittsville and District Community Centre project was announced by Grenville-Carleton MP Gordon Blair on behalf of the federal government. The funding was to provide for six jobs to persons who would otherwise be unemployed, with the aim of completing

the community centre project. This would include site landscaping and construction of a parking lot, erection of walls in the service area, installation of plumbing and completion of washrooms, installation of decking over the service area and installation and erection of walls and ceilings in the upstairs community hall. Under the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Local Initiative Program, a non-profit organization or group of citizens or a municipality could obtain a grant for projects which created new employment and which had a significant impact on the overall betterment of the community. In May, 1971, Carleton MPP Erskine Johnston presented a grant of $20,000

from the Ontario Department of Agriculture and Food to the Stittsville and District Community Centre Committee on behalf of the Ontario government. The grant covered up to 25 percent of expenditures for a one-time facility such as an arena, community hall, swimming pool, ball park, up to a maximum of $10,000. If more than one facility were involved in the project, such as an arena and a hall as was the case with the Stittsville project, then the allowable limit was 25 percent of expenditures up to a maximum of $20,000. In the case of the Stittsville project, two municipalities were involved, namely the village of Stittsville and the township of Goulbourn. See OFFICIAL, page 67

Both municipalities were eligible for the appropriate grant funding for the project. In February, 1971, the township of Goulbourn council paid the village of Stittsville $20,000 as its grant funding for the project. This was just days after the new Stittsville and District Community Centre had opened its doors to the public on Friday, January 15, 1971 without any ribbon cutting or other official ceremony. There was free skating for everyone from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. that night, with at least 200 people taking advantage of this initial skating at the new arena. The arena was open again for public skating on the Saturday afternoon and evening and again on the Sunday. Although the arena was being used, work was still going on during the inaugural weekend. A work crew put wire protection in front of the lobby viewing area and the lines for hockey were painted on the ice surface. Work was progressing on the installation of heating pipes and there were plans to pour some concrete in the dressing room area in the near future. Weldon Parks and Stu Healey, two volunteers, were working hard on installing the lighting in the arena. Use of the arena began right away, with Stittsville Public School reserving two hours each week for its skating program. Figure skating classes also got underway with a hockey school being held on Saturday mornings. Stittsville’s hockey teams began holding both their games and practices in the new arena. The Stittsville and District Community Centre was officially opened on October 31, 1973, signaling completion of the project. This came after partial use of the facility for two years and almost six years after the first meeting to organize a “covered arena” committee for the community. For the official opening, the hall and arena were both finished except for some minor interior finishing work. The new facility was valued at $300,000, with Stittsville village reeve Ab Black cutting

the ribbon at the official opening ceremony. This was one of his last formal acts as Stittsville reeve before the forced amalgamation of Stittsville, Richmond and rural Goulbourn township to form the new amalgamated Goulbourn township on January 1, 1974. It was pointed out at the official opening that the arena project was an example of what a small municipality could do when the community supports a project. The new Stittsville and District Community Centre featured an 80 foot by 185 foot artificial ice surface, seating for 500 and four dressing rooms. In 1971, the Stittsville District Lions Club was raising money to provide an official clock for the new arena. Artificial ice was installed in the Stittsville District Community Centre by the end of March, 1973 thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Stittsville village council and the action of a group of residents associated with the Stittsville District Lions Club who guaranteed a loan of $10,000. There was also some community fundraising involved. In 1972, for instance, the figure skating and hockey coaches of the community carried out a canvass of the village to raise funds for an artificial ice plant for the arena. More than $2,500 was raised by this canvass. Total cost of the artificial ice installation was $30,000, consisting of $22,000 for the ice plant and $8,000 for the building in which to house it. The $15,000 provided by the village came from funds from the municipality’s recreational capital fund i.e. lot development fees and the village’s funds collected as five percent in lieu of parkland monies. The artificial ice was needed because it was felt in the community that Stittsville teams were at a disadvantage competitively because other teams had artificial ice in their home arenas and thus enjoyed a longer hockey season. On April 18, 1973, the first Stittsville house league hockey tournament played on the new artificial ice of the Stittsville and District Community Centre was held, with 26 teams in-

volved. The parking lot at the Stittsville and District Community Centre was reconstructed and paved in September, 1980 at a cost of $95,015.50. The job included digging out the area, refilling it with gravel and then paving it. Installing light standards was also part of this job. In April, 1982, Goulbourn township awarded a contract for an addition and elevator at the Stittsville and District Community Centre to Arcol Construction of Ottawa at a cost of $105,900. The project involved building an addition on the south side of the building at the front to house a new elevator to service the second floor community hall. The job also included installation of washroom facilities upstairs as well as renovations to the existing washrooms downstairs to make them accessible for handicapped persons. This project was fully funded by Wintario under a special program of the Ontario Ministry of Culture and Recreation to make public facilities more accessible for the handicapped. In August and September, 1984, a new addition was added at the front of the Stittsville and District Community Centre. This was for shower facilities for the dressing rooms. Ana Mac Construction of Manotick was the general contractor for this $37,000 project. In 1996, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Stittsville and District Community Centre and also to pay tribute to the two individuals who were acknowledged as being instrumental in guilding the project from its instigation to its fulfillment, Goulbourn township named one of the streets leading off Main Street into the facility as WarnerColpitts Lane. Warner-Colpitts Lane is the name given to the street beside Poole Creek leading into the Community Centre parking lot from Main Street. It had previously been considered a part of Church Street, the other street a little farther south which also leads into the parking lot from Main Street and which in recent years has been renamed Mulkins Street. Warner-Colpitts Lane was named after Sterling Warner and Ian Colpitts, the two men who

were leaders in the campaign to raise the funds and then to build the Stittsville and District Community Centre over the period 1967 to 1973. In announcing the naming of the street, Goulbourn township mayor Paul Bradley pointed out that the construction of the Stittsville and District Community Centre “quite literally changed the quality of life” for residents of Stittsville and area from when it opened in 1971 right up to the present day. Mayor Bradley said that the whole project was “one of total community involvement” with everyone in the village helping out in some way, either by giving money, taking part in the many fundraising projects or helping out with the volunteer labour. In 1997, Ian Colpitts and Sterling Warner, the two acknowledged leaders of the campaign to build the Stittsville and District Community Centre, were honoured as recipients of the Goulbourn Sports Wall of Fame Committee Award for outstanding contribution tos ports in Goulbourn township. At that time, Mr. Colpitts recounted some of the fundraising efforts that went into the project such as sportsman’s dinners, dances, auction sales and marathon walks. There were also federal and provincial grants which helped. He noted that the fundraising did not stop with the building of the arena but continued for the artificial ice plant. Mr. Colpitts recalled that the first hall rental in the new Community Centre hall took place on June 19, 1972. It was a stag party for the soonto-be-married Paul Bradley who went on to become mayor of Goulbourn in the 1990’s. In 2008, the Stittsville and District Community Centre underwent a major renovation of the facility with a budgeted price tag of $1,177,000. The work will involve replacement of the rink’s concrete pad and boards, some structural remediation and power distribution improvements. In addition the plumbing fixtures at the arena were replaced. In 2011, the Stittsville and District Community Centre was renamed the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in honour of longtime Stittsville sports volunteer and enthusiast John Leroux.

EMC news - A new Stittsville/Kanata initiative is not only going to involve a fun and informative evening on Wednesday, Sept. 19 but is also going to lead to opportunities to strengthen families in the area, helping to build a strong community. Called “Building Strong Families,” this initiative will kick off with a dinner and information event on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the Kanata Golf and Country Club, with Steve Madley of CFRA Radio as the keynote speaker. But then this dinner will be followed by a series of courses focused around building strong families. The courses will include marriage preparation, marriage, parenting children and parenting teenagers. These are courses that were developed in the United Kingdom and are now being offered in many

countries around the world. The courses are fun, informative and virtually free, with the only cost being the course materials which are less than $10 per course. See the website www. for more information. The courses for Stittsville and Kanata will be offered on different nights and at different locations so that as many as possible can attend. In his keynote address at the Sept. 19th dinner, Steve Madley will share his thoughts on the importance of strong families in communities. At the dinner, there will also be introductions given about the various courses being offered. The courses will start within three weeks following the dinner. Cost of attending the dinner is $20 per person or $35 for two ($30 for the first 75

tickets sold). This initiative is a project of a group of concerned citizens in the area who want to so something to help with the problems that are prevalent in society today. Marriages are breaking down because people struggle to talk and relate to each other and to understand each other. Children struggle with bullying, drugs, guns, peer pressure and suicide. All of this affects not only the immediate people involved but also local neighbourhoods and communities. It is not good enough to rely on instinct or trial and error to solve these problems. That’s why these courses are so important; they can help in improving parenting skills, assist preparation for marriage or improve existing marriages. And when this happens, it means strong communities.
