AUGUST 25: Fairwinds Community Movie Night

The Fairwinds Community Association presents our annual outdoor movie night on Friday, August 25.  This free family event takes place at Rosehill Park (Rosehill Ave @ Helm Circle) starting at approx. 8:30pm. Popcorn and bottled water will be available by donation, with funds going to Lamitta’s Wish.

(If the weather isn’t co-operating, we’ll move the event indoors to the gymnasium at Kanata Academy at 180 Huntmar.)

Special thanks to our event sponsors Geoff & Bobbie McGowan. And thanks to Councillor Shad Qadri and the Kanata Academy for their support.

Volunteers needed!  Email info@fairwindscommunity.com if you’d like to help!

Watch for updates coming soon in this space…

Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at Par la Ville Park…

(press release)
Please join us for Shakespeare in the Park! Passions soar and hearts break in this production of Romeo & Juliet, brought to you by Bear & Co. Join us outdoors to celebrate the long evenings and warm weather, and theatre that stands the test of time. Bring a picnic, a blanket or lawn chairs, raingear in case it mizzles, and bug spray, and watch six actors conjure the warring families of Verona in front of your eyes.
