April 2019


It’s time for the Spring edition of Glad Cleaning the Capital!

Concerned about garbage and waste in the neighbourhood?  How about tons of plastic waste polluting our lakes, rivers and oceans? 

This year the Beacon Hill Community Association will give you two opportunities to do something about garbage and plastic pollution in our ‘hood and river.

Join us on Sunday, April 28th at 1 PM in Ski Hill Park to help clean up the park (and it needs it!)

We will be hosting a second clean-up event two weeks later specifically aimed at doing our part to reduce plastic waste in our waterways.

Join us on Saturday May 11th at 1 PM at the public boat launch at the north end of Blair Road.  A reminder to come in the May newsletter. 

For both events:
Garbage bags will be provided.  Some gloves will be available, but bring your own if you have them.
Please come dressed for the weather and with a big smile, ready to help clean the capital.


C’est le temps de l’édition printanière du Grand ménage de la capitale GLAD!

Préoccupé par les ordures et les déchets dans le quartier? Et qu’en est-il des tonnes de déchets plastiques qui polluent nos lacs, nos rivières et nos océans?

Cette année, l’Association communautaire de Beacon Hill vous donnera deux occasions de faire votre part pour lutter contre la pollution par les déchets et le plastique dans notre quartier et notre rivière.

Soyez des nôtres le dimanche 28 avril à 13 heures au parc Ski Hill pour aider à nettoyer le parc (et il en a besoin!) Deux semaines plus tard, nous organiserons un deuxième événement de nettoyage dans le but spécifique de faire notre part pour réduire les déchets plastiques dans nos voies navigables. 

Soyez des nôtres le samedi 11 mai à 13 heures à la rampe publique de mise à l'eau située à l'extrémité nord du chemin Blair. Un rappel sera publié dans le bulletin de mai.

Pour les deux événements :
Des sacs à ordures seront fournis. Quelques gants seront disponibles, mais apportez les vôtres si vous en avez.
Habillez-vous en fonction de la météo et venez avec votre grand sourire pour aider à nettoyer la capitale.

Community Garden in your neighbourhood!

No garden space, no problem. You can grow your own food at a community garden right in Beacon Hill South. 

For the last several years, Pine Grove Church has had a community garden. The church is on East Acres and backs on Hwy 174. Eleven of the fifteen raised beds are rented out for $25 for the summer. The church provides seeds and advice. There is a hose for watering. There are even chicken wire cages to protect your growing plants. What about the other four garden plots? Two of the garden beds grow produce for the Gloucester Food Cupboard. The other two plots are for flowers to attract bees to help pollinate our plants. 

For more information, see our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PGGardenGuardians/. You can email pggardenguardians@outlook.com.

Jardin communautaire dans votre quartier!

Aucun espace de jardin, pas de problème. Vous pouvez cultiver votre propre nourriture dans un jardin communautaire situé à Beacon Hill Sud. Depuis plusieurs années, l’église Pine Grove dispose d’un jardin communautaire. L'église est située sur East Acres et donne sur l'autoroute 174. Onze des quinze parcelles surélevées sont loués 25 $ pour l'été. L'église fournit des semences et des conseils. Il y a un tuyau d'arrosage. Il y a même des cages à volaille en grillage pour protéger la croissance de vos plantes.

Qu'en est- il des quatre autres parcelles de jardin? Deux des parcelles de jardin cultivent des produits frais pour la Banque alimentaire de Gloucester. Les deux autres parcelles sont réservées aux fleurs pour attirer les abeilles et les aider à polliniser nos plantes.

Pour plus d'informations, consultez notre page Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PGGardenGuardians/.

Thank You to Our Rink Volunteers!

Regardless of what winter throws at us, we have many rink volunteers who brave the cold and give of their time to make sure that our rinks are properly supervised, the shacks are unlocked, clean, and warm, and that teenagers can get some volunteer hours or a little bit of scratch for their pockets.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to our volunteer managers as well:
Thank you, Ed!
Thank you, Mike!
Thank you, Dave!

Remember, come November we’ll be looking for more volunteers. If your child will be 15 years old by then, watch for our call out in November.
 

Merci à nos bénévoles des patinoires!

Peu importe les conditions hivernales, nous avons de nombreux bénévoles qui bravent le froid et donnent de leur temps pour veiller à ce que nos patinoires soient bien surveillées, que les chalets soient ouverts, propres et chauds et que des adolescents puissent obtenir quelques heures de bénévolat ou quelques sous dans leurs poches.

Un GROS MERCI aussi à nos dirigeants bénévoles :
Merci Ed!
Merci Mike!
Merci Dave!

N'oubliez pas qu'en novembre, nous chercherons plus de volontaires. Si votre enfant aura alors
15 ans, surveillez notre appel en novembre.

Our Main Sponsor This Month:

Nous avons oublié d’inclure la traduction française dans notre dernière lettre d’information. Nous en sommes désolés. Un grand merci à notre traducteur, Jean-Luc Malherbe pour son travail bénévole. La version française se trouve à la fin de la version anglaise.

Incident with a child walking to school
(let’s be vigilant)
 
We recently had a post on the BHCA Facebook page about a school aged boy walking to school that was punched in the stomach by another boy (much taller and older) walking in the opposite direction. The boy who was hit was obviously shaken along with his mom that informed us of this incident. This incident took place in Beacon Hill North near Shoppers Drug Mart.

News like this is always upsetting. We live in a great neighbourhood but it’s not picture perfect all of the time.

Let’s come together as a neighbourhood and be extra vigilant in the mornings while we’re out going to work or out walking. Let’s pay closer attention to those kids walking in (or out anytime), making sure they are safe and hopefully we’ll be able to catch something if this were to happen again.

We’re a great community and together, we can watch out for all our kids!

ROUTES 24 & 224

 

There were many posts and comments on the BHCA Facebook Page regarding the local OC Transpo bus service (224 & 24). Residents were encouraged to e-mail Tim Tierney with all complaints in order to have documented proof and be able to bring forward these issues with the appropriate people.

Here is a message from Tim regarding the latest information with the busing situation (taken from Tim’s newsletter):

I have had meetings with the GM of Transit, as well as the Chair of the Transit Commission to work out the ongoing issues with bus routes 24/224 and 94. I have been pressing for urgent attention to both of these routes. I have asked to have immediate effort put towards making the necessary adjustments to improve the service for these routes. The number of cancellations that took place in recent weeks is just simply unacceptable, despite the challenging weather conditions. I am deeply concerned about it, and even quite aggravated that this has taken place as frequently as has been documented. I continue to receive your emails voicing your concerns for its unreliability, and I assure you that each and every time we get one, I make the GM aware. I am working very hard on this for all of you, and will push as hard as I have to, to get the service we expect from OC Transpo. Finally, I have raised this matter at the Transit Commission meeting to get the action we need on this file. I will update you with more information as I have it.

GREEN CORNER
 
In Beacon Hill, we are lucky to live in one of the best neighbourhoods in Ottawa. Nice homes, good schools, lots of parks and close proximity to the Ottawa River are just a few of the great features of our hood. But with all the benefits comes responsibility. It’s up to us to take care of our neighbourhood and one of the ways we can do that is by managing the solid waste we put at the curb.

It’s important to take extra care when putting out our recycling and garbage bins on windy days to prevent paper or plastic from blowing around. This will ensure no debris finds it’s way into the streets, parks and the river.

Here are a few tips:

  • Take out your bins in the morning if you can (as opposed to the night before)
  • Try putting larger items on top of smaller items in the bins (they are less likely to blow out)
  • Consider purchasing an extra blue or black bin to use on alternating weeks to ensure your bins aren’t so full that items spill out. 
And of course, if you see garbage or recycling blowing around, please pick it up!

This spring we will be hosting a clean up event in our neighbourhood.  Stay tuned for more information and we look forward to seeing you out there helping to keep Beacon Hill clean and beautiful!

Incident avec un enfant qui marchait à l’école

(soyons vigilants)

Nous avons récemment eu un article sur la page Facebook de la BHCA à propos d’un garçon d’âge scolaire se rendant à l’école à pied qui a reçu un coup de poing dans le ventre par un autre garçon (beaucoup plus grand et plus âgé) marchant dans
la direction opposée. Le garçon qui a été frappé était visiblement secoué ainsi que sa mère qui nous a informés de cet incident. Cet incident a eu lieu dans Beacon Hill Nord, près du Shoppers Drug Mart.

Des nouvelles comme celle-ci sont toujours bouleversantes. Nous vivons dans un très bon quartier mais ce n’est pas parfait tout le temps.

Regroupons-nous en tant que quartier et soyons extrêmement vigilants le matin lorsque nous partons travailler ou marcher. Portons une attention particulière aux enfants qui entrent (ou sortent à tout moment), en nous assurant qu’ils sont en
sécurité et espérons que nous pourrons remarquer quelque chose si cela se reproduisait.

Nous sommes une grande communauté et, ensemble, nous pouvons faire attention

 

CIRCUITS 24 & 224

Il y a eu beaucoup d’articles et de commentaires sur la page Facebook de la BHCA concernant le service d’autobus local d’OC Transpo (224 & 24). Les résidents ont été encouragés à envoyer un courriel à Tim Tierney avec toutes les plaintes afin de disposer de preuves documentées et d’être en mesure de signaler ces problèmes aux personnes appropriées.

Voici un message de Tim concernant les dernières informations sur la situation des autobus (tiré de la lettre d’information de Tim) :
 
J’ai rencontré le directeur général (DG) du transport en commun, ainsi que le président de la Commission du transport en commun, afin de résoudre les problèmes en cours concernant les lignes de bus 24/224 et 94. J’ai insisté pour qu’une attention urgente soit accordée à ces deux circuits. J’ai demandé que des efforts soient déployés immédiatement pour procéder aux ajustements nécessaires afin d’améliorer le service sur ces circuits. Le nombre d’annulations survenues ces dernières semaines est tout simplement inacceptable, malgré les conditions météorologiques difficiles. Je suis profondément préoccupé par cela, et même assez perplexe aggravated par le fait que cela se soit produit aussi souvent que cela a été documenté. Je continue de recevoir vos courriels, exprimant vos préoccupations quant à son manque de fiabilité, et je vous assure que chaque fois que nous en recevons un, j’en informe le DG. Je travaille très dur pour vous tous sur ce sujet et je ferai tout ce qui est en mon pouvoir pour obtenir le service que nous attendons d’OC Transpo. Enfin, j’ai soulevé cette question lors de la réunion de la Commission du transport en commun afin d’obtenir les mesures nécessaires dans ce dossier. Je vais tiendrai au courant dès que j’aurai plus d’informations. 
 

Concert intime

Jevin et Ashley organisent une série de concerts chez eux à Beacon Hill. Le premier concert aura lieu le 16 mars à 19 h 30 avec Ian Sherwood et ils aimeraient vous accueillir. Plus de détails ici :

Session de printemps de taekwondo de Johnson

L’école de taekwondo de Johnson est ouverte depuis plus de vingt ans. Notre objectif principal a toujours été d’aider les étudiants à surmonter leurs obstacles. M. Johnson est certifié ceinture noire sixième dan par la Fédération internationale de taekwondo avec plus de 35 ans d’expérience en entraînement et en enseignement.

L’école de taekwondo de Johnson est un fier partenaire de la ville d’Ottawa. Venez nous rejoindre pour notre prochaine session de printemps. Nous offrons des cours pour tous les âges et tous les niveaux, y compris un cours pour les filles et des cours pour la famille. Nous offrons maintenant des cours le samedi pour les débutants, des cours le samedi pour la famille et notre nouveau programme Tricking 180. Nous offrons également des cours de cardio-kickboxing. Vous pouvez vous inscrire à: Ottawa.ca et pour consulter la liste complète des cours, visitez le site www.Johnsontkd.com

LE COIN ÉCOLO
À Beacon Hill, nous avons la chance de vivre dans l’un des meilleurs quartiers d’Ottawa. De belles maisons, de bonnes écoles, de nombreux parcs et la proximité de la rivière des Outaouais ne sont que quelques-uns des atouts formidables de notre quartier. Mais avec tous les avantages vient une responsabilité. C’est à nous de prendre soin de notre quartier et l’une des façons de le faire consiste à gérer les déchets solides que nous mettons au bord de la rue.

Il est important de prendre des précautions supplémentaires lors de la fermeture de nos bacs de recyclage et de nos poubelles les jours venteux pour empêcher le papier ou le plastique de s’envoler. Cela garantira qu’aucun débris ne se retrouvera dans les rues, les parcs et la rivière.

Voici quelques astuces :
• Sortez vos poubelles le matin si vous le pouvez (contrairement à la veille)
• Essayez de placer des objets plus gros par-dessus les objets plus petits dans les bacs (ils sont moins susceptibles de s’envoler)
• Pensez à acheter un bac supplémentaire bleu ou noir à utiliser toutes les deux semaines pour vous assurer que vos bacs ne sont pas si pleins que des objets en sortent.

Et, bien sûr, si vous voyez des ordures ou du recyclage en train de s’envoler, ramassez-les!

Ce printemps, nous organiserons un événement de nettoyage dans notre quartier. Restez à l’écoute pour plus d’informations et nous sommes impatients de vous y voir pour aider à maintenir la propreté et la beauté de Beacon Hill!

A message from Helping With Furniture

 

Helping With Furniture is a volunteer organization founded in the Beacon Hill area in 2005. Many residents of Beacon Hill are already well acquainted with us, as we could not have helped over 1,700 families in need without the incredible support and donations we have received from our community. Through donations and volunteers, the organization provides furnishings for several families each week, delivering household goods and furniture directly to their homes. Our main objective is to serve people who belong to the most vulnerable groups of society by providing them with the basics that every house needs to feel like a home. 

If you would like to donate lightly used household goods or furniture, you can do so by either dropping off items or arranging for pick-up. Items may be dropped off on Wednesday evenings (7:00 -9:00 pm) or on Saturday mornings (10:00 -12:00pm) at the warehouse, which is located at 5350 Canotek Rd, Unit 9. Alternatively, we can pick up larger items from your home by appointment.
Please see hwfottawa.org for details.

Public Transportation, Blair Station
and Phase 2 of the LRT

 

Using public transportation is a great way to reduce our personal carbon footprint. The imminent launch of Ottawa's first phase of light rail from Blair station will make the service from Beacon Hill to downtown more convenient. Ecology Ottawa is conducting a research and community engagement project designed to identify challenges and opportunities for active transportation around Blair Station. Consider taking this quick survey to help the Ecology Ottawa project.
CLICK HERE for BLAIR station SURVEY

We are also excited for Phase Two of Light Rail which will bring light rail further east to Montreal Road and the 174. The city of Ottawa is currently considering whom to award the construction contract to, and the launch of Phase Two is currently scheduled for 2023.

 

SHACK RULES and HOURS of operation (for outdoor local rinks)

**There is an absolute ZERO tolerance policy for ANY cannabis use anywhere near the rinks or shacks. We had an incident, warnings were given out (and parents notified). Please be aware that the police will be notified for any future violations of the rules. 

We are very lucky to have rink supervisors at our 3 rinks, who make it possible to keep the shacks open evenings and weekends. Being able to put on and take off skates in a warm shack is a luxury. 
 

Shack hours for Eastvale & Fairfield rinks:
Monday-Friday: 6-9pm
Weekends: 10am-6pm

Shack hours for Jasmine:
Monday-Friday: 5-8pm
Weekends: 10am-6pm

Rink Supervisors still needed for
Jasmine and Fairfield Rinks

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!

HOLIDAY PANCAKE BREAKFAST
Sunday, December 9th, 9-11am

 

A message from Councillor Tim Tierney

With the Christmas holidays 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!

 
The BHCA Newsletter is written by members of the board. Jeff Kaluski, the BHCA president, wrote it solo for years. For the past few months Josée Lindsay has helped contribute some content (and make it prettier). We are fortunate to have David Handelman join as a regular contributor to the Green Corner, bringing you great tips to make a more environmental home and community.

Did you know you can also contribute to the monthly newsletter?

We would love to get interesting content from you, the members of our community. It could be a one-time small piece about anything interesting in Beacon Hill. It could be a picture of the hood back in the day with a caption of where it is. It could be about an event that you know of or anything else that would be of interest to your neighbours. 
The content will be reviewed by one of our members and if approved will appear in the Newsletter as well as the FB group page.

Please submit the article via this link: https://www.bhca.ca/submit/

GREEN CORNER
 
EASY tips for a greener holiday season:
 
Make your own wrapping paper out of the comic section of an old newspaper or perhaps old flyers. Re-use gift bags you've received or skip wrapping all together. 
 
Buy local foods, wine and spirits for your holiday feasts.
 
Consider purchasing gifts that are locally sourced, or perhaps even consider gifts you can purchase from other people, like off of sites like ebay or kijiji. Experiential gifts may be even better. You'll spend time with the people you care about and no manufacturing or waste is required. 
 
Responsibly deal with old items that have been replaced by the gifts you receive. Consider donating or selling old cell phones or other electronics, or ensure they get disposed of responaibly in e-waste collection locations. 
 
Traveling somewhere? Consider offsetting the emissions created by your travel on sites like: www.terrapass.comwww.carbonfund.org or www.carbonify.com

The BHCA would like to wish you a very happy holiday season!
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season with friends and family. It's the time of year for giving but also a time to be thankful for all that we have. Speaking of gratitude…

Thank you to all that came out to the BHCA events in 2018. Thank you to all the volunteers that have helped us coordinate, plan and deliver awesome events.
And thank you to you, all the neighbours in Beacon Hill. We are very lucky to live in a such a great neighbourhood, with great people and look forward to an even bigger and better year in 2019.

Rink Operator needed for JASMINE rink!

The City of Ottawa hasn't been able to locate an operator for the building and maintenance of the ice at the Jasmine Outdoor Rink. They have asked the BHCA to send out a request in search of someone to take on the ice building duties. 

 The position comes with a stipend of $2379. Although the work is heavily front loaded, the back end is quite light. If you, friend(s), your local sports team, local group, or neighbour would be interested, please reply to this email and we at the BHCA will put you in contact with the appropriate people at the City to provide the community with a skating rink on Jasmine crescent.

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!

Get involved!
Board members needed!
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.

 
Please come join the BHCA Facebook group page.
 
The Facebook page was created by the Beacon Hill Community Association to contribute to the sense of community in our hood and provide another tool to connect with fellow neighbours. It's a place where we can share news about our community such as upcoming events, awesomeness currently going on or information that would be helpful to residents in the neighbourhood. It is not meant to be a place to advertise a business or to sell things. Your cooperation would be much appreciated.

 
December 9th: Pancake Breakfast at Colonel By High School
Cars and winter don't really go well together. There area few things you can do to make the snowy driving season easier on everyone:
  • Brush off your entire car before driving
  • Winter tires are soooooo worth it
  • Slow down in slippery conditions
  • Remember there are lanes even when there's snow
  • Park as close to the next car as you would in the summer
  • Slow down when pedestrians walk on the road
  • (not winter specific) Use the zipper merge at onramps
Everyone is trying to get somewhere, and with a bit of tolerance, we can all get 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!

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.

JOIGNEZ-VOUS À NOTRE GROUPE SUR Facebook

 

Venez vous joindre à la page de groupe Facebook de la BHCA.
 
La page Facebook a été créée par l'Association communautaire de Beacon Hill pour contribuer au sentiment d'appartenance dans notre quartier et fournir un autre outil pour communiquer avec nos voisins. C'est un endroit où nous pouvons partager des nouvelles au sujet de notre collectivité comme des événements à venir, des choses géniales qui se produisent actuellement ou de l'information qui serait utile aux résidents dans le voisinage. Ce n'est pas
destiné à publiciser une entreprise ni à vendre des choses. Votre collaboration serait grandement apprécié.

Dates à Retenir
