Newsletter June 29, 2012
One last Newsletter before the BHCA Newsletter writer takes a summer break.
Picnic in the park
Canada Day’s Picnic in the Park will take place at 2130 radford court from 10 to 2 on Canada Day. Bring a blanket or chairs and a lunch and be prepared for fun games, some light tunes and a great time.
Do you want to see what launching over 85kg (186 lbs.) of fireworks looks like? Do you want to see simultaneous launches from three separate firing points? Do you want to see fireworks criss-crossing in the air before bursting in a rainbow of colours? Do you want to see all this in your backyard? Canada Day in Beacon Hill is where it’s happening. The show begins between 8:30 and 9:00 PM with some amateur stuff, and the BIG show starts around dusk (9:30PM-ish) at Loyola Park, and keeps going until we run out of fireworks. Time for some “oooh”s and “aaah”s! Don’t miss a single second! www.beaconhillfireworks.webs.com
The Fireworks show is an expensive endeavour that your BHCA puts on for free. If you’re feeling generous, it would be very much appreciated if you brought a few dollars or your spare coins to drop in our donation buckets to help us offset the cost of the show so we can continue to put it on every year for every family in our community.
Your BHCA is asking anyone in attendance at our Fireworks show who is able to, to please video the show and send it to us. You can email us the video (email@example.com
), you can post it to youtube and email us the link (firstname.lastname@example.org
), or email us (email@example.com
) and we’ll arrange to pick up a copy from you in person.
Our Fireworks Show would not be possible without the very generous support of the Home Depot located at 1616 Cyrville rd. When shopping there, be sure to thank them for everything they donated to make our Community event possible. Thanx, Home Depot!
Graffiti, Vandalism and Theft
Your BHCA has been approached by the Ottawa Police Services to organize a Neighbourhood Watch. This will only work if we get people to go for evening strolls, take their dogs for a walk, and take some pride in their community. Vandalism (in the form of tagging) has increased dramatically in our neighbourhood, and a Neighbourhood Watch could help reduce these instances of vandalism. The worst that could happen is you get some exercise and prevent crime. Let us know if you’d like to help firstname.lastname@example.org
Clean up the Capital
We are looking to put together a Clean Up the Capital committee to help us organize cleaning, and keeping clean, our community. If you are interested in spending a few hours over the next 9-10 months helping us plan, please email us at email@example.com.
