Got a coffee pot?
If so, you can host an Alzheimer Coffee Break. All you need are a few people or a group? and a coffee pot, of course.
On September 21, you can invite your friends, neighbours and colleagues to turn each cup of coffee into something significant. Your local Alzheimer Society will supply everything you need to host a successful Coffee Break: a hot-to guide; a poster to publicize the Break; and a container for donations.
For details, contact the local Alzheimer Society of Ottawa-Carleton at 523-4004.

Residents have until September 14 to get their nominations into the City of Ottawa.

The awards will be presented on October 14 by the mayor and members of city council, in collaboration with the city?s Cultural Leadership Committee. The awards pay homage to individuals or groups who, through their efforts and accomplishments, have demonstrated excellence and whose achievements have significantly enhanced the quality of life in Ottawa.
Awards will be presented in six categories: dance, theatre, writing and publishing, music, visual arts, media arts, heritage and community arts/heritage (neighbourhood or a city ward project that increased direct community participation in arts or heritage programs.)
A jury of peers from the arts and heritage sectors will make a final section.
