HOLIDAY PANCAKE BREAKFAST
December 9th, 9-11am

 

A message from Councillor Tim Tierney

With less than two months until the Christmas holidays are upon us, I wanted to take the opportunity to have you all come out for a pancake and sausage breakfast at Colonel By Secondary School. We will be hosting you in their Cafetorium, with cooking done by Enbridge. We will also be collecting donations (food and cash) to give to the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard as the holidays are always a busy time, and I would love nothing more than to be able to help others have a warm and festive holiday season.
 
Please mark Sunday December 9th from 9:00am-11:00am in your calendars as the date of the event. I look forward to seeing you there!

DÉJEUNER DE CRÊPES DU TEMPS DES FÊTES
Le 9 décembre de 9h à 11h

Message du conseiller Tim Tierney

À moins de deux mois des vacances de Noël, je voulais profiter de l’occasion pour vous inviter toutes et tous à un déjeuner de crêpes et de saucisses à l’École secondaire Colonel By. Nous vous accueillerons dans leur cafétorium, avec un menu préparé par Enbridge. Nous recueillerons également des dons (en nourriture et en argent) à remettre à la Banque alimentaire d’urgence de Gloucester, car les Fêtes sont toujours une période occupée et j’aimerais surtout pouvoir aider les autres à passer une période des Fêtes chaleureuse et festive.
 
Veuillez inscrire le dimanche 9 décembre de 9h à 11h dans vos calendriers comme date de l'événement. J'ai hâte de vous y voir!

Rink Supervisors Needed!

Are you 15+ years old?

Would you like to earn your volunteer hours by playing hockey or skating? 
OR
Would you like to get a $10/hour stipend as a thank you for volunteering?

If you answered 'Yes' to either question…WE NEED YOU. You will be responsible for unlocking the skate shack, counting the skaters, and locking up afterwards (a few other small things, but that's the bulk of it). That whole time you can skate or play hockey, ringette, whatever.

Please fill in this quick form to let us know if you'd like to help!

GREEN CORNER
 
Tips for a "greener" winter
 
As the cold weather and snow set in, it’s a good time to consider some opportunities to reduce our environmental impact over the winter.

Heating our homes is one of our biggest impacts in the wintertime. There are a few ways to reduce this impact. Consider buying a smart thermostat (like a Nest www.nest.com or an EcoBee www.ecobee.com). These smart thermostats learn your behaviour and activity at home and seamlessly lower your heat when you are not home. They are estimated to reduce the energy needed to heat your home by 10-20%.

A more economical option is a programmable thermostat, which allows you to set a schedule to lower the heat at night or when you are out during the day to save on energy consumption. Programmable thermostats are estimated to reduce the energy needed to heat your home by about 10-15%. Both are good options and relatively easy to find and install.

Some other things to consider this winter to reduce your energy consumption:

Make sure to run your clothes dryer and other appliances in off peak hours (evenings and weekends) at which time the electricity is cheaper and cleaner (Ontario only burns Natural Gas during peak electrical demand).

Better yet, get a clothing rack or indoor clothesline and hang your clothes to dry.

These are a few simple tips that can help reduce your energy consumption and in turn reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that your household emits. 

LE COIN ÉCOLO
Conseils pour un hiver « plus vert »
Avec le temps froid et la neige, c’est le bon moment pour envisager certaines possibilités de réduire notre impact environnemental pendant l’hiver.

Le chauffage de nos maisons est l'un de nos plus grands impacts en hiver. Il y a plusieurs façons de réduire cet impact. Pensez à acheter un un thermostat intelligent (comme un Nest www.nest.com ou un EcoBee www.ecobee.com). Ces thermostats intelligents apprennent votre  comportement et votre activité à la maison et réduisent la chaleur sans heurt lorsque vous n'êtes pas chez vous. On estime qu'ils réduisent de 10 à 20 % l'énergie nécessaire pour chauffer votre maison.

Une option plus économique est un thermostat programmable, qui vous permet de définir un  programme pour réduire le chauffage la nuit ou lorsque vous sortez pendant la journée afin de réduire votre consommation d'énergie.

On estime que les thermostats programmables réduisent d'environ 10 à 15 % l'énergie nécessaire pour chauffer votre maison. Les deux options sont bonnes et relativement faciles à trouver et à installer.

Quelques autres points à considérer cet hiver pour réduire votre consommation d'énergie :

Assurez-vous de faire fonctionner votre sécheuse et vos autres appareils en dehors des heures de pointe (le soir et la fin de semaine), lorsque l'électricité est meilleur marché et plus propre (l'Ontario ne consomme du gaz naturel que pendant les pics de consommation électrique).

Mieux encore, procurez-vous un porte-vêtements ou une corde à linge d'intérieur et  suspendez vos vêtements pour les faire sécher.

Voici quelques conseils simples qui peuvent vous aider à réduire votre consommation d’énergie et donc à réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre émis par votre ménage.

The BHCA is looking for a new board member to fill the Seniors Community chair, Community Outreach, Rinks Manager (in charge of all 3 rinks) and other volunteer roles. These roles would help the BHCA make connections with local, great businesses in the community, attend Ecological meetings with the city, or just help us out in general.

Just hit 'Reply' to this newsletter and let us know what you'd like to do, or if you aren't sure, just let us know and we can figure out a good role that you'll enjoy.

Impliquez-vous! Membres du Conseil d’administration recherchés!

La BHCA est à la recherche de nouveaux membres du Conseil d'administration pour occuper les postes de président de la communauté des aînés, de sensibilisation de la communauté, de gérant des patinoires (responsable des 3 patinoires) et d'autres rôles de bénévole. Ces personnes aideraient la BHCA à établir des liens avec de grandes entreprises locales, à assister à des réunions écologiques avec la ville ou à nous aider en général.

Cliquez simplement sur « Répondre » à ce bulletin d’information et indiquez-nous ce que vous souhaitez faire. En cas d’incertitude, faites-le-nous savoir et nous pourrons trouver le bon rôle.

Beacon Hill Family Fun League – Are You In?

We are two dads in Beacon Hill North who have grown a little weary with little league competitive baseball. So we are organizing a Beacon Hill Family Fun Baseball League (FFL) to take place in September and open to kids and people of all ages.

Every Saturday afternoon from 12:00 to 16:00 for four weeks on September 8, 15, 22 and 29, we will congregate at Eastvale Park in Beacon Hill North (https://goo.gl/maps/xQHfenHRzES2) to play baseball, cheer on the players and maybe have a barbecue.

We want to make it more than just a fun baseball game. We want it to be a community event – a very good reason for people to come out and get to know their neighbours and new classmates, even if they don’t want to play baseball.

Here’s how it works. Each person who is planning on attending fills out the form below as soon as possible. This will help us know how many people are planning on coming and if they intend to play or just watch. It will also let us know who we should notify if plans change due to weather or other reasons.

Then, everyone – any age, any ability – shows up at the field with equipment if they have it (including any extras to share) or just a smile if they don’t. They play baseball if they want, watch the game and chat with others if they don’t. If they decide to play but don’t know how, we’ll explain what to do. You don’t have to live in Beacon Hill if you want to attend.

So, are you in? If so, you can sign up at https://rmassociates.ca/beaconhillbaseball/ CCC If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either of us directly: John McKay at johnnelsonmckay@gmail.com and Matt Kletke at rmkletke@rogers.com

We’ll bring the music, the bouncy castle, and the show. You bring your family, friends, some lawn chairs and a donation.

We NEED you to donate either at our events (we will be visible, as well as announce who we are over the PA system), or online at www.BHCA.ca using PayPal.

If you enjoy the show, please consider how much it was worth it to you to have a local, yet immensely impressive, fireworks show and drop that amount into our donations cans (or as stated earlier, online via PayPal).

Thank you!

Subject: Eastern Subwatersheds SWM Retrofit Study: Online Information Session – June 15, 2018 to July 13, 2018
To: Jolliet, Laurent <Laurent.Jolliet@ottawa.ca>

Hello,

 

Attached please find the announcement for the launch of the final Online Information Session for the Eastern Subwatersheds Stormwater Management Retrofit Study, an Ottawa River Action Plan (ORAP) project. The website will go live on June 15 and comments will be sought until July 13, 2018.

 

The purpose of the study is to identify a stormwater management retrofit plan that will mitigate the water quality, erosion and flooding impacts of existing development within the subwatersheds of Bilberry, Taylor and Voyageur Creeks, and the urbanized areas of the Green’s Creek subwatershed. The proposed retrofit plan provides a strategy to help mitigate the impacts of uncontrolled runoff from areas in the east end of the city that have little or no stormwater management.

 

The Online Information Session can be viewed at this link: ottawa.ca/eastsubwatersheds

Please provide your comments by July 13, 2018.

 

If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

King Regards,

 

 

Bonjour,

 

Veuillez trouver ci-joint l’annonce du début de la dernière séance d’information en ligne au sujet de l’Étude sur la modernisation de la gestion des eaux pluviales des sous-bassins hydrographiques de l’Est, un projet du Plan d’action de la rivière des Outaouais (PARO). Le site Web sera accessible dès le 15 juin et les commentaires seront acceptés jusqu’au 13 juillet 2018.

 

Cette étude vise à déterminer un plan de modernisation de la gestion des eaux pluviales qui permettra de réduire les effets sur la qualité de l’eau et les risques d’érosion et d’inondation pour les aménagements existants des sous-bassins hydrographiques des ruisseaux Bilberry, Taylor et Voyageur, et pour les zones urbanisées du sous-bassin hydrographique du ruisseau Green. Le plan de modernisation envisagée propose une stratégie qui contribuera à atténuer les conséquences négatives d’un ruissellement non maîtrisé dans les secteurs de l’est de la ville ne disposant d’aucun ou de pratiquement aucun moyen de gestion des eaux pluviales.

 

La séance d’information en ligne est accessible à l’adresse: ottawa.ca/bassinshydroest

Veuillez fournir vos commentaires d’ici au 13 juillet 2018.

 

Si vous avez des questions au sujet de l’étude, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec moi.

 

Cordialement,

Ride to Work Day!

To: All City Mayors, administrators and All Motorcycle and Scooter Riders
From: Ride to Work
Date: 05/29/18
Subject: 2018 Motorcycle and Scooter Annual ‘Ride To Work Day’

The 27th annual Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 18th. Every year more than a million two wheeled moto-commuters demonstrate the benefits of riding, including: reduced road congestion, shorter commute times, more parking spaces and less fuel consumption.

Your city can support this event by proclamation, and also encourage riding by providing free motorcycle and scooter parking at municipal ramps and metered spaces on this day. Join hundreds of other communities as well as many motorcycle and scooter groups and organizations supporting this year’s Ride to Work Day.

Reasons to encourage motorcycle and scooter commuting:

  • Shared parking spaces, providing more parking for everyone else.
  • Fewer resources consumed per-commuter than other powered mobility options.
  • Reduced traffic and congestion.
  • Less commuter travel time.

We seek government, employer and community support and recognition of the positive social benefits of riding. Proclamations and providing motorcycle and scooter parking at no charge, are great ways to encourage this beneficial (and enjoyable) form of transportation.

Supporter Tools:

Ottawa woman flooded with calls after Elections Ontario phone number mix-up

From CBC.ca:

A phone number mix-up appears to have turned an Ottawa woman into an Elections Ontario worker against her will.

Nancy Westran says her cell phone has been flooded with calls for help after voter information cards went out in May.

There’s a toll-free number to reach Elections Ontario on those cards, but the cards do not include the number “one” in front of the toll-free number.

ECO CORNER

The Beacon Hill Community Association would like to thank everyone who came out on Saturday May 12, 2018 to help make Beacon Hill a beautiful place to live! A special thank you goes out to Councillor Tim Tierney who generously provided shelter from the sun and delicious hot dogs for our volunteers.  Additionally, we want to recognize Action Martial Arts for bringing out a whole contingent of martial arts students who were cleanup superstars!  

This year’s event represents a record turn out and we hope to keep building this momentum as we grow the BHCA spring cleanup event.  We would appreciate constructive feedback or advice for us to improve for next year. Please send us an email at eco@BHCA.ca.

We’ll review your submission, and if approved, we’ll publish it on the website, Tweet it out, and put it in our next newsletter.
