I had the pleasure to talk with Mlacak last December when I was doing some research into the old house and barn at 173 Huntmar Drive in Stittsville. He was commissioned to do a series of paintings of the house in 2010 and 2011 for the previous owners. He had hoped at one point to turn the property into an artists’ retreat.
My neighbour Bill and I recently cycled to the Ashton Brew Pub. Ashton is just west of Stittsville and the pub is located inside the town’s old mill.
It’s easy to get to from Stittsville, just head west down the Trans Canada Trail. Before the trail passes under Highway 7, you turn off onto West End Way, then left on Ashton Station Road. The mill is on the corner roughly where Flewellyn Road intersects. Continue reading →
The Goulbourn Museum launched a new exhibit this week commemorating the Richmond and Stittsville Lions’ 50th anniversary. Both clubs received their charters in 1964 beginning their years of service and involvement in the community. Continue reading →
Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital program was officially launched at City Hall this week by the Mayor, the Chair of Transportation Committee, and by Christopher McCluskey of Tim Hortons.
Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green. Last year alone, 80,000 volunteers collected almost 140,000 kilograms of litter from 1,400 locations. That’s enough to fill 150 garbage trucks.
The Richmond Fair is the largest spectator event held annually within the surrounding community. It promotes agricultural awareness within the City of Ottawa.
The fair offers a venue for those in the community to showcase their arts, crafts, livestock and produce. Although the fair’s mandate has been to promote agricultural awareness within the community, the other non-agricultural events such as the demolition derby, live music shows, aerial shows, rock climbing, reptile shows, BMX bike shows, etc. provide a vast array of entertaining events for the whole family.
This Tuesday, September 16 is the debut of the “Open Floor Readings” series at Gaia Java (1300 Stittsville Main Street). Writers of all types – prose, poetry, or lyrics – will each have 8-10 minutes to read their work.
Vivien Taylor came up with the idea. She’s a retired librarian who moved to Stittsville last March to be closer to her grandchildren. She lied in Wellington in Prince Edward County (near Picton) and was involved in several poetry workshops and open floor events there.
Jenny Guth’s son Levi is only in junior kindergarten this year, but she’s already thinking about where he’ll go to high school.
Guth (pictured above), along with several other parents in the area, are planning events and activities this fall to ramp up pressure on the Ontario Government to fund a new public high school for Stittsville. Continue reading →
Kanata Theatre presents “The Dining Room”, a play by A.R. Gurney and directed by Barbara Kobolak. It runs September 16 – 20 & 23 – 27, 2014 at the Ron Maslin Playhouse.
About the play: “The dining room: a place where family assembles daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions – a source of stability and permanence in a world of change. Through a mosaic of interrelated scenes – some funny, some touching, some rueful – Gurney creates a portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. Journeying through the decades, the actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids.”
Tickets are $20 and available at the box office. The Ron Maslin Playhouse is located at 1 Ron Maslin Way, off Terry Fox Road across from East Side Mario’s.
