CGYHA Street Party & 50/50 Draw Winner

Posted on

Our Annual Street Party, although a bit soggy, was quite successful. Neighbours came out sporting rain gear and their “Street Spirit Colours”. Due to transitory attendance through the event, it became impossible to declare a street with the “best” attendance. Special mention goes to Gerard and Betty who ensured their Rideau Valley Drive yellow was clearly visible.

Kids enjoyed tattoos, facepainting and an obstacle course race. Team 1 won points for finding creative ways around the “no hands” rule with the water balloons. Team 2 won the race by getting the most water balloons to their bucket and were very patient and helpful with the youngest participants.

50/50 Draw: the winning ticket is 514461. A total of $150 was collected with 1/2 going to YOMA. Please email denae.moores@gmail.com to claim your prize.


THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

To YOMA volunteers who sold tickets and informed our community about their organization.

To our sponsors: Robinson’s Your Independent Grocer, Star Toilets & Septic Pumping, Miller’s Farm & Market & V’s Cupcakes.

To all our neighbours who came out despite the weather.

To all our set-up and tear down volunteers and to Andrew and Brent who barbecued in the rain.

And especially to our Events Director, Denae Moores who did such a wonderful job coordinating refreshments, food, bbq equipment, tents, games, prizes and more!

After the disappointing postponement due to rain, our community was treated to an evening of glorious weather and an outstanding turnout at the Annual CGYHA Street Party. Our volunteer chefs, Adam MacArthur and Gareth Mercer, served up hamburgers and hotdogs to over 150 neighbours, along with fresh corn, watermelon, drinks and chips. This year’s hosts, Jimmy, Sunny and Ben Kim, created a safe area on their driveway for the our youngest neighbours. Kids enjoyed a tattoo station, ring toss, bean bag toss and a water balloon race while neighbours welcomed those new to our community, met some new friends and caught up with old ones.

Thank you to Robinson’s Your Independent Grocer and Miller’s Farm and Market who donated the food and refreshments. Special thanks goes to all of our neighbours who volunteered their time and resources and to our Events Director, Darlene Mercer, who coordinated everything to make it happen!!!!
