If you live in Westboro you’ll want to listen up for a sec

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Westboro|Misc. life

Westboro residents know that this neighborhood is a fantastic place to live. There are lots of changes going on, some good, some not-so-good. It’s important to stay updated and get involved. And when those big issues come up it’s best to stand as a group, is it not? That’s why you should consider joining me (as well as some of your neighbors!) for a meeting of the Westboro Community Association.

The next one is scheduled this Thursday, April 26th in the Dovercourt boardroom at 7:00 p.m.

I hope to see you there!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
