Around the Community: December 27 2017 – January 2 2018

Small look at the events I was able to take part in around the community for the week of December 27 2017 - January 2 2018

Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope everyone’s holidays were full of joy, starting 2018 off right with love and light.

Throughout 2017, I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to speak with amazing community members and volunteers, families, students, entrepreneurs, veterans, and academics who are so engaged in making our communities great places to live and work.

I am so proud of the community spirit I see in Kanata-Carleton every day. I remain so inspired by our high tech firms, farmers, small businesses, entrepreneurs, veterans, care givers, Community Associations, government workers, and all those who worked so hard to make our community a great place to live. While we have had success, there is still more to do, and I remain committed to working hard on your behalf! So from my family to yours, I wish you all a happy New Year and hope that your 2018 is filled with health, happiness, and much love!

Thank you very much to everyone who donated winter clothing
