BBQ Fun Day a Treat for Moms and Children

July 25th, 2013

To celebrate the success of our summer school students, we decided to host a BBQ Fun Day for our young moms and their children.

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa helped to make this BBQ possible, and members of the club  were on-site to lend a helping hand.

Our BBQ Chef for the day was none other than Dave Smith himself who really helped us to provide an ample amount of delicious food for our moms and children. Everyone enjoyed the food, the sunshine and the time to visit with staff, volunteers, and fellow moms and children.

Activities were planned for the children to enjoy, including a visit from a City of Ottawa fire truck and three friendly firefighters. Our toddlers especially loved to see the big red firetruck!

Other children played in the sprinkler, enjoyed toys and sensory activities, relaxed in the shade and played with our new bubble machine.

It was a day for our students to be kids again, to relax and enjoy themselves, and to have a day of summer fun.

Special thanks to the following people and organizations for making this all possible:

  • The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa
  • Dave Smith
  • Mike Lundy
  • The City of Ottawa Fire Department
  • Youville Centre Staff and Volunteers
