Celebrating our community at the Main Event

Residents of Old Ottawa East celebrated their community at the annual Main Event, held on June 16. Congratulations to the Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG) for organizing another successful event. The “Political BBQ” is part of the Main Event tradition and is a fundraiser for the Old Ottawa East Community Association (OECA). The BBQ was organized by board members Nick Masciantonio and Jamie Brougham, with support from Jan D’Arcy, Barbara Hicks, and over a dozen community volunteers and board members. Thanks also to the group from Celebration! Church. Approximately $850 was raised from the BBQ to support the OECA. Thank you!

We would also like to thank our elected officials who donned an apron and got behind the grill. They included: Ottawa City Councillor David Chenushenko, MPP Yasir Naqvi, OCDSB trustee Rob Campbell and OCSB trustee Kathy Ablett. Generous contributions were also made by the following: The Wheat Berry, Sandy Hill Community Health Centre, Mayor Jim Watson, McKeen Glebe Metro, Loblaws (Isabella St.), Shoppers Drug Mart (Glebe), Shoppers Drug Mart (Sunnyside), and M&M Meats.
