    7.1. Halloween Wrap-Up

    Whereas the RPCA’s Halloween Activities for 2020 were an unqualified success, despite the precarious nature of the pandemic; and
    Whereas community fundraising efforts greatly exceeded expectations, generating a surplus that is expected to be over $1,000 when the account is settled; therefore
    Be it resolved that the RPCA recognize the generous support of the community and the tireless efforts of all the volunteers who organized and promoted the events, bought and delivered candy and toys, assembled and distributed treat bags, wrote and read spooky stories, collected and donated pumpkins, paid or reimbursed bills, researched city bylaws and public health restrictions, shared their costumes online, and otherwise helped to retain the magic of Halloween for local children; and
    Be it further resolved that 50% of the fundraising surplus be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank in the name of the RPCA and Riverside Park residents, and the remaining 50% be used to subsidize future community events.

The April meeting of the RPCA Board of Directors has been postponed due to public health warnings against public gatherings. Your community association will continue to advocate for our neighbourhood, but we are calling on residents to stay at home to help contain the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19.

We will continue to monitor the situation and determine whether we can proceed with an in-person meeting in May. In the meantime, the board is investigating contingency plans, including the possibility of holding live public meetings online.

We ask for your patience and support as our community works together to overcome this situation. Stay tuned to the RPCA website and click here to sign up for community updates.
