When my son started JK at Hopewell Avenue Public School, I was five months pregnant with a one year old in tow, so kindness from Hopewell parents during pick up and drop offs meant the world to me. It encouraged me to engage more deeply with the community by volunteering.
We’re gearing up to participate in Giving Tuesday 2019 and we’re beside ourselves with excitement. Why? Because #GivingTuesdayCA is all about giving back and finding ways to do so even finding a cause close to our own hearts.
Enjoy our first “intergenerational” bench at the bus stop on the corner of Bank Street and Hopewell Avenue. Have a seat and chat, to connect with neighbours.
On Saturday, October 19, 2019 Trinity Anglican Church celebrated 140 years in Old Ottawa South. The ceremony recounted the church's history and highlights of the parish over the many years with story-telling, music, and reflection on both the past and future.
Lots of ways to get involved, before & after Halloween.
October is one of those “bittersweet” months when the colourful and dramatic changes of Fall are at their most compelling and most nostalgic. The almost wistful affection that clings to this season begs for some “sweet” reminiscing and as Green Dreamers we tend to “recall” the season’s “happenings” in our local public lots.
Come celebrate Trinity Anglican’s 140th year anniversary at the corner of Bank Street and Cameron Avenue, in OOS, on Saturday, October 19th, 2019, from 2 to 4 pm. For this very special occasion, Music at Trinity will dedicate its October concert to this anniversary. We are planning to celebrate the contribution of generations beyond our founding members, with a fun afternoon of narration and music, followed by a light reception. You will learn many fun facts about our history and be well entertained with selections of music reflecting the various periods of Trinity’s life.
Geoheritage Day is an annual event that highlights spectacular geological sites in and around the National Capital. Volunteers from Carleton University’s Department of Earth Sciences and the Ottawa-Gatineau Geoheritage Project are on hand at featured parks and green-spaces to explain how geological processes have shaped the regional landscape.
Last weekend to see the 2019 performance!

The years 2015 - 2018 are the world’s hottest years since the recording of weather patterns began and now, according to NASA, 2019 is on track to be even hotter. Planting trees is the best and easiest way to counter global warming. In a recent Science article, researchers estimated that not only is tree-planting fifty times more effective than other forms of emissions combating but it also helps micro-climates or th,e areas around the planted trees, to be cooler and have a cleaner air.
Here in Old Ottawa South, we have been planting trees on the patch of land on Canal Woods Terrace near Bronson Avenue for ten years. We do it to help clean the air in our neighbourhood and to protect our community from the noise and sight of the seven-lane monstrosity that Bronson has become.
