Ancient Verona in Old Ottawa South: A September evening with Romeo and Juliet

Ancient Verona in Old Ottawa South: A September evening with Romeo and Juliet

Good news! The City of Ottawa has withdrawn the Bylaw charges against The Company of Adventurers from two years ago. We would like to extend our enormous gratitude to Emilie Taman of Champ and Associates and Michael Polowin of Gowling WLG for steadfastly supporting and defending us pro bono these last two years. This process took a very long time and entailed a great deal of work, in part because of delays related to the COVID-19 situation. Thank you, both! We would also like to say a huge thank you to Sunnyside Wesleyan Church for offering us their space for rehearsals during the height of the heat this past August. For two years, they’ve extended compassionate support to us when we needed it. Thank you, Sunnyside!

We will be offering the community one weekend of shows at our residence at 57 Glen Avenue this Sept. 9, 10, and 11; and a second weekend at The Gladstone Theatre, Sept. 16, 17, and 18. The hiatus of the past two years has left us sorely missing our neighbourhood gatherings. Please come out and see us!

Jesus Take the Wheel

Neighbourhood dismay this week to see a clean-up crew arrive without warning to empty Saint Margaret Mary Church at the corner of Sunnyside Ave and Fairbairn St.

St. Margaret Mary Church.

St. Margaret Mary Church for Sale

Shuttered in the spring of 2019, St. Margaret Mary Church at 5 Fairbairn, and the house at 7 Fairbairn which was used as a rectory, are officially for sale. Avison Young Commercial Real Estate Services LP, has been hired by the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall to arrange the sale of the property in a closed bid process, unpriced with a bid date to be determined. The listing for the church site states that a concept plan supports development of up to 40 units over five storeys. This envisioned redevelopment at the corner of Fairbairn and Sunnyside would sit directly across the street from the Old Firehall Community Centre and atop the short block of houses on Fairbairn Avenue below.

Celebrate the Historic Aberdeen Pavilion

On Saturday, July 2, 2022, the City of Ottawa, in collaboration with the Central Canada Exhibition Association, will host a community festival at Lansdowne Park to celebrate 30 years since Ottawa City Council resolved to restore the Aberdeen Pavilion.

The Aberdeen Heritage Festival will kick off at 9:30 am with an opening ceremony in the Aberdeen Pavilion, followed by exciting activities throughout the day. This includes:

Helping hands Juliana and Miranda Ayson.

Secret Guardians of Windsor Park

Day and night, 365 days a year, Windsor Park is cared for by incessant secret guardians. The Windsor Park dog walkers seem innocent enough, with their cute pooches and their light banter, but at the heart of every dog walker is a community park guardian.

This is an opportunity to shop local and perhaps discover something new for your garden or kitchen windowsill.
