The new MCA Logo

We are thrilled to announce that Option 2 was chosen for the new MCA logo. The decision was made by the MCA executive based on the feedback given by the community, 70% supported the idea to incorporate a four leaf clover in the design of our logo.

The thinking behind our new logo, specifically the choice of the four leaf clover:

  • Munster was originally named after one of the kingdoms in Ireland, where many of its first descendants originated from.
  • The four leaf clover has four leaves, one for each quadrant in Munster.
  • We are so lucky to be surrounded by nature here in Munster.
  • We’re also pretty lucky to live in such a special place.

Special thanks once again to our MCA Member at Large, Jody Ferguson, at Voilà Creative for designing the logo.

Munster resident Bob Easy recognized with Mayor’s City Builder Award

February 22, 2017

Bob Easy receives Mayor’s City Builder Award

Ottawa – Mayor Jim Watson and Rideau-Goulbourn Ward Councillor Scott Moffatt presented the Mayor’s City Builder Award to Bob Easy at today’s City Council meeting.

17B-048-12

Bob Easy has been involved in building and supporting youth in the communities of Munster and Richmond going back to the 1970s. The sense of community and of family he established among the teams he coached was sadly evident in 2012 when one of Bob’s players died tragically during a game due to a heart condition. Bob took it upon himself as head coach to support the boy’s family, his team and coaches, and the opposing team, by arranging grief counseling. He also organizes fundraising events to assist local players whose parents are unable to fully afford the cost of a hockey season; players who have been given the opportunity to play at a higher competitive level but whose parents are not able to pay the fees associated with that.

In 2001 Bob was presented with a plaque in recognition of his outstanding service to Minor Hockey under the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association. In 2009/10 he was honoured as Coach of the Year by the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association for his special dedication to player development and team play. In 2014 Bob was presented with the Bill Kitchen Award for his devotion of time and effort to strengthening minor hockey in the community.

Bob was also involved in umpiring for fastball in Kanata for many years, and in slo-pitch in North Gower, Richmond and Munster in his later years. He is also involved in the Munster Co-operative Nursery School’s annual ball tournament in June. In 2003 Bob, assisted by Sharon Shouldice of Stittsville, organized a tournament in support of Tori Carswell, a child cancer victim in the area. Bob also volunteers as a Santa and last year he played Santa at Munster’s first Santa Claus Parade.

The Mayor’s City Builder Award is a civic honour created to recognize an individual, group or organization that has, through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action, demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. This may include lifelong service, outstanding acts of kindness, inspiring charitable work, community building or other exemplary achievements.

Individuals, groups or organizations may be nominated by members of City Council or the public.

The award is presented at the beginning of each City Council meeting.
