Report of OSCA Program Committee

2009 – Anna Sundin, Chair

We did it……….we actually did it……….we got the $2.9 million from City Council to renovate and expand the Firehall. That was the highlight of 2008. We then had to find alternate accommodation during construction and we did at Southminster Church plus additional space at Hopewell PS. We are moving mid June for 9 to 12 months. We hope to be able to offer almost the same programs we offer here at the Firehall. So please continue to support programming at your local community centre. We are looking forward to opening up in our new space for the summer of 2010 – we know you will love the new spaces there.

Another big change last year was that our Program Coordinator, Dinos Dafniotis exchanged places for one year with Regis Alcorn from Glebe CC. Regis is doing a wonderful job and we will miss her when she goes back to Glebe.

THIS NEEDS UPDATING by Regis who is on a course today

Highlights for this past year include:

    • New Adult Fitness courses have proven to be very popular. Both our Yoga and Pilates classes are very well attended and we look forward to developing Adult Fitness even more in a new building.
    • Summer camps – had our greatest number of children ever which stretched our resources – we really need that new building!
    • We continue to use Hopewell Gym, but would really love to have it for Saturday classe

Volunteer roles

The OSCA Program Committee (OPC) is a fun and creative group of community members who have committed to help funnel community feedback and to suggest new program initiatives to Staff. This year the Committee was expanded and re-shaped to create focused volunteer positions. We can always really use more members, either at large or looking for helping out with one particular area- for example we really need someone with a marketing background. The committee is always looking for your input. It can be sent either to This email address is being protected from spambots.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege serving the community. Here’s to a great new year!
