In my capacity as both City Councillor for Stittsville Ward 6 and Chair of the Ottawa Board of Health I am holding an event, in conjunction with Ottawa Public Health (OPH) , that celebrates the many partners in our community who support and work with our residents. Together we share a common mandate in the roles we hold working with communities – improving and supporting the lives of others.

On March 4th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM I invite residents to join me along with Ottawa Public Health and our various partners at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (1500 Shea Rd) – as we hold a health and well being fair entitled “March 4th into a Healthy 2017” – OPH along with; the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, Safer Roads Ottawa, Ottawa Fire Services, Western Ottawa Community Resource Center, Ottawa Neighbourhood Watch, Distress Center of Ottawa, Canadian Blood Services, Heart and Stroke, as well as many others will be on hand to provide residents with information and guidance on the various resources and support they have to offer. Also don’t miss your chance to get a SMOOCH – a bicycle-powered smoothie machine that allows users to blend up their own delicious and healthy smoothies as they peddle!

Mayor Jim Watson will be in attendance at 11:00 a.m. to welcome residents, promote healthy lifestyle choices and celebrate the important health theme.

Please join me as we March 4th into a Healthy 2017!
