Photos – Weekend events provide captured moments

Just great to see the Goulbourn Fire Department antique fire engine back on the road!

The 9runrun found 2,000 participants taking part in the 10th Anniversary of this run that was started by Brenda Tirrell, volunteer firefighter and Stittsville resident. The run supports emergency services personnel in our area, while promoting community health and fitness through the newly created Ottawa First Responders Foundation of which Brenda is President.

The HolliBell Foundation held their 1st year anniversary halloween themed doggie walk-a-thon at Sunset Farms on October 19th. This was their second time holding a walk-a-thon and proved to be as successful as their first. The Foundation has raised $27,000 in their first year and have provided support for rescues, assisted families with pet costs and provided spay and neuter clinics. HolliBell is currently selling a calendar that highlights the many animals and organizations that they support. You can purchase yours for a $20 donation via etransfer to (the calendar will be delivered to you). Twintuition filled the air with their beautiful violin playing. Stittsville sisters Fern Marwood, aged 16, and Willow Marwood, aged 12, really added their musical charm to the event. Councillor Glen Gower, Grits Anglin (owner of Sunset Farm) and Lesley McKay of Stittsville Central were asked to judge the many costumed dogs – it was a tough decision – but we did it!

The Stittsville Market at the Barn had some great local vendors displaying their lovely pieces. Chic Tweets were there selling their whimsical wooden snowmen and other winter/seasonal pieces; Caitlyn Ferris was displaying her unique acrylic artwork and jewelry pieces; Kelly Sanderson was exhibiting her felt fibre artworks; Alicia Brown-Neilson of Just a Bit Knotty was selling her gorgeous wood artisan pieces; Jackie Campbell, along with her daughter, were selling her wonderfully creative knitted hats and mitts; Charlotte was there with her fragrant bath bombs; and John Hayman of Hayman Woodworks, was on site selling his exceptionally made wood charcuterie and cutting boards, along with coasters and furniture – almost too beautiful to use.
