So, how are you doing today? I mean that sincerely. Life has certainly changed for all of us. It is like a snow globe that one sees at Christmas. A nice calm scene; turn the globe over and give it a shake; and, now one has an amazing snowstorm inside the globe.
UPDATED: in light of the postponement of the OSCA AGM, the deadline for nominations for the Community Builder Award has been extended until June 30, 2020.
As a result of the announcement that City facilities will be closed and following the recommendations made by the City of Ottawa, Ottawa Public Health, and Federal government agencies, we have made the difficult choice to cancel all OSCA programming; this includes the Firehall Fitness Centre, the Pottery Studio, Board and Committee public meetings.
The OSCAR and The Glebe Report community newspapers will be acquiring six newspaper boxes to make the papers jointly available in our communities. The boxes will be placed along Bank Street between the Queensway and the Rideau River. Local artists will be commissioned to decorate the boxes. We welcome submissions from all artists including Old Ottawa South and Glebe students in high school or University.
We are excited to announce that we will soon be partnering with Amilia — a Canadian online registration software provider — to replace our current registration system.
Did you have a chance to read OSCA President Richard Slowikowski's report in the March OSCAR? It's full of interesting information about some recent and upcoming changes at OSCA, so we reproduced it here:
Registration for all of our Spring Programs in now OPEN!
The safety, health, and well-being of our clients and staff is a top priority at OSCA. Clients with a sinus infection, cough, and/or fever are asked to refrain from attending programs in order to prevent the spread of colds and flu to others. We ask clients to be diligent in following Ottawa Public Health’s “Guidelines for School and Child Care Facilities on Communicable Diseases and Other Childhood Health Issues” document, which provides recommendations for exclusion due to health issues.
