Hello my friends in Old Ottawa South, it’s me Santa!
My pals at OSCA have been hard at work thinking of fun and festive ways to celebrate. We know it’s been a tricky year, and all of you have certainly earned a spot on my ‘extra nice’ list!
At OSCA, we have put together several spooktacular activities this Halloween. We know this Halloween will be far from a traditional one and we hope that you and your family will find some devilish delight in the activities we have planned.
All Hallow's Eve is fast approaching and we're getting in the festive spirit! From October 23rd to 30th, we'll be hosting a myriad of fun social-distance-appropriate activities.
Many in Old Ottawa South will remember the “Walk for the Centre” which runs every fall to promote awareness of food insecurity for many in our city, and to raise funds for the Centretown Emergency Food Centre. The Centre serves a large central catchment area including OOS, and has students, seniors, recent immigrants, and rooming house occupants amongst its clients. In addition, the Food Centre’s 90-plus volunteers include a number of OOS residents. Several neighbourhood churches are members of the Centre’s parent organization and sponsor of the walkathon, the Centretown Churches Social Action Committee (CCSAC).
In addition to a silent auction, networking opportunities, and wine & cheese, our fifth annual Women's Day Celebration will feature two guest speakers! Click "Read More" to learn a little about them!
On Thursday, December 19, 2019, OSCA staff and volunteers celebrated their traditional Christmas dinner with children from their After Four Program.
My name is Katie Stewart and I am a member of the Stairwell Carollers. I have lived in Old Ottawa South my whole life and I am a former student from Glebe Collegiate Institute. I first sang with this amazing choir in May 2017, as a member of the Glebe choir when we performed together with the Stairwell Carollers.
Lots of ways to get involved, before & after Halloween.
