OSCA’s Annual General Meeting is more than a legal requirement. The AGM has traditionally been a welcome opportunity to gather in the Firehall in the springtime as a community, hear what our Old Ottawa South Community Association has been doing for us over the preceding year, and share ideas for the coming year. OSCA’s AGM is among the many things disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Once again, organizing OSCA’s traditional in-person AGM has been complicated by health guidelines, government regulations and practical considerations, all relating to Covid-19.
In wintertime, until nine years ago, I used to love walking to and down the steps of the Colonel By Drive access and go for a skate on my beloved Dutch speed-skates. But now, two fractured hips and arms later, my fur-lined leather speed-skates are collecting dust and the same is happening with my cross-country skis.
Dress up in your costume and head over to the Firehall to get your photos taken and printed in our photo booth— photos are by donation! Meet some of our program coordinators and fitness instructors and learn about our fun, upcoming programs, classes, and check out our gym!
