Hi everyone:

What a pleasant surprise for Eileen and me to return from cool and windy England last week to warm and sunny Ottawa! Hopefully, the warm weather will continue and encourage you to join us at one or more of the following events. We hope to see you there.

1. Sharing Circles – 3rd Tuesday

Our Sharing Circles continue on the third Tuesday of every month at the Olde Forge Community Resource Centre, 2730 Carling Avenue (at Richmond Road) from 7pm to 9pm and will continue throughout the summer. The next meetings are May 21st, June 18th, July 16th and August 20th. For directions and a map, please visit our website www.tcfottawa.net. There is no need to register in advance and there are no fees to attend any of our meetings or activities.

2. Butterfly Garden Spring Clean-up – May 18th

We are organizing a work party for Saturday, May 18th at 10am, rain or shine. If you are interested in helping, please reply to this e-mail or call 613-692-4521. This is a great opportunity to get your “green thumb” back in shape with some light outdoor work and as well as a pleasant social activity. The Butterfly Garden is located on the CHEO campus on the small hill opposite the Emergency entrance. Coffee and parking passes will be provided, courtesy of CHEO.

3. Annual General Meeting – June 4th

Our AGM #14 will be held on Tuesday, June 4th at 6:30pm at The Olde Forge. All parents are welcome to come and see what happens “behind the scenes” and perhaps offer your own talents and expertise to help others in need.

4. Balloon Release – June 15th

The annual Balloon Release in cooperation with CHEO will take place at 2pm on Saturday June 15th at The Butterfly Garden (on the CHEO campus). All family and friends are welcome to join in remembering those children who have left us to soon. Balloons will be provided.

5. Summer Pot Luck Social – July 6th

Eileen and I will be hosting our annual get-together on Saturday July 6th starting at 4:30pm. We will send a reminder nearer the date.

Best wishes,
