A PSA: Volunteers needed

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Yaktivism

Jenn from the Hampton-Iona area of Ottawa needs a few helping hands for the big “start-of-summer” pool party at Iona Park.

This year due to people’s schedules and other commitments, we have limited volunteers to put the party together, so I am sending a broadcast HHHEEELLLPPPP out to everyone, hoping a few of you will be able to pitch in and help.

It will be really simple, just one or two tasks such as: making some phone calls, maybe a trip to the store, help setting up, BBQing, playing games or putting up flyers etc. The more people who can help out the better. If you can’t attend or help, baked goods would be much appreciated as well.

The party will be June 26th, 10 – 1. This party has become a very big and important community event, so help out, spread the word, attend, participate. The pool will be open, we’ll have games, face painting, hot dogs, coffee and all sorts of other fun things!

Let me know if you can help! Don’t make me BEG ;-)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. 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.
