The Awesome Alta Vista Weekend is right around the corner and our next AVCA meeting is on Tuesday May 16th at 7:30pm at Rideau Park United Church.
As this our last meeting before our traditional summer break our agenda is rather full. We have several time sensitive community building items that require discussion and approval before we break for the summer. Please find attached our agenda and feel free to share it with your neighbours and social networks.

Community in a Cup

Tea is a tradition shared by many cultures and ages. Join the Alta Vista Public Library for a celebration of this wonderfully unifying drink. Students from Ridgemont High School will display hand-made, decorated teapots. A tea tasting will be led by David’s Tea. Enhanced with music by Moore & McGregor (Celtic Rathskallions). Weather permitting, the tea will be taken in the courtyard. Sponsored in partnership with MASC.
