BIGGEST Block Party in 150 Years!
It's Canada's BIG year, and we're celebrating with the BIGGEST Block Party in 150 Years!
This event is being hosted by O-YA and ROSSS (Rural Ottawa South Support Services) and funded in part by the City of Ottawa's Rural Community Building Grant. As part of O-YA's 2016 Teen Leadership Camp, Councillor George Darouze and Mayor Watson challenged the teens to help O-YA and ROSSS come up with ideas for an event to celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary. The BIGGEST Block Party in 150 Years was a product of this challenge. The youth came up with some fantastic activities and have continued on to be part of our Block Party Planning Committee. Thanks to Emma Brooks, Keegan Kilfoil, Jenna Baker, Sarah Yeaton and Morgan Kilfoil for all of their hard work! Look out for them in the community wearing their BIGGEST Block Party shirts to promote our event!
