Heritage Day & Photo Exhibit Open House – Goulbourn Township Historical Society

Event: Heritage Day & Photo Exhibit Open House – Goulbourn Township Historical Society
Date: Saturday, February 27, 2016
Time: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Stittsville Public Library, Main Street, Stittsville

The Goulbourn Township Historical Society (GTHS) is hosting a Heritage Day event on Saturday, February 27 at the Stittsville Library. There will be people in period costumes and displays for viewing. Bring in any of your old photos of the people of Goulbourn, buildings or businesses that you think we would like copies of for our Archives and to be included in our display.

While you’re attending the GTHS event, you can visit our new archival photo exhibit now available to the public for viewing on the Artspace Wall at the Stittsville Library. Called “Pioneer Portraits”, it has some lovely portraits of our early local inhabitants. There is an information sheet with some background on each of the photos that you can have and follow as you view the exhibit. Everyone is invited to visit this exhibit – a tribute to those who came before us to settle Goulbourn Township.

Mark it on your calendar to participate in our Heritage Day celebration! There will be refreshments for everyone, the parking is free and the building is handicapped accessible.

Want to see new programming in Munster

The City of Ottawa is interested in bringing new programming opportunities to Munster, and specifically, into Munster Elementary School. There are options for daytime fitness classes, children’s programming and special interest classes. But, we need to know what people want before anything will happen.

 

If you are interested in seeing new programs in Munster, please fill out the attached survey and drop it off into the survey box at Macs. Your input counts and this is your chance to have a say.

NCC 50-year Plan – Have Your Say

The National Capital Commission (NCC) is preparing a plan that could transform Ottawa, and we need your help to steer them in the right direction.

As we approach 2017, Canada’s 150th anniversary, the National Capital Commission is looking for your ideas to help transform Ottawa. The NCC has announced that they are preparing a 50-year plan for Canada’s capital region that will be launched in 2017 and they want to identify 17 major initiatives that will transform Ottawa.

This is where we need you to get involved! The NCC has asked the public to submit ideas on possible projects.  How do you want Ottawa to be remembered and represented in the future? Do you want more ill-conceived monuments and statues? Or do you want living monuments that restore Ottawa’s tree canopy, protect and promote our greenspace, and foster a green future for our nation’s capital.

You can submit your comments at the link below:

Rink Open

Thanks to our fabulous and dedicated rink co-ordinator Jay, the ice is officially open as of tonight. The lights can be flipped on manually as needed. The change rooms will be open daily from 9am to roughly 8pm weeknights and 9pm weekends. When crews arrive to begin flooding we ask that skaters kindly leave the ice pads and change rooms – help is welcome if you are able. At this time we are still looking for people to help with the maintenance. Ideally one crew per night to scrape and flood. We’d ask that children skate either supervised or with friends in case of injury or accident. Last year a lad fell and hit his head and it was only because some other kids were there skating that he got assistance. A request also please that the change rooms remain as they are found – clean of garbage and graffiti free.
