Mayor's Walk for Volunteerism
On Saturday, April 29, a small but energetic bunch of us headed down to Ottawa City Hall to participate in the Mayor's Walk for Volunteerism, hosted by Volunteer Ottawa, as a wrap-up to National Volunteer Week. Here's a couple of action shots from this beautiful sun-filled morning.
Here's us on the bridge with two of the folks from ALSO. Our walk was also a good chance to talk: ALSO has an exciting new program proposition for us! Isobel is standing backwards so we can get her good side--er, that is, the back of her t-shirt which reads, "The Amazing Book Race." I'm not sure on the details, but we'll find out and get back to you.
Before the walk, we were treated to some live music. Here, Jenny and Lorna sing along to "Paved Paradise and Put Up a Parking Lot" ...
...while Mayor Bob shakes his maraccas and dances along.
The final photo is Jenny and her new love: an enormous Newfoundland named Tucker who was, admittedly, very charming. And very enormous.
