Continued Pressure for a School in Findlay Creek

by FCCA | 2 Comments


The FCCA would like to thank Councillor Qaqish for adding his voice (CTV news clip) to our fight for a new Public Elementary School in Findlay Creek. The OCDSB must see Findlay Creek as the highest priority and follow through by putting Findlay Creek at the top of the Capital Priority List in order to get the funding required to get the job done in a quick and efficient manner. 


If you have comments or questions about the future school in Findlay Creek please feel free to drop us a line – Jason Smith is our school board liaison schools@findlaycreek.org, or our OCDSB representative Mark Fisher at mark.fisher@ocdsb.ca or Ward 22 Councillor Michael Qaqish - Michael.Qaqish@ottawa.ca

Do you want to know more about taking care of your car? What about getting a better idea of what car repairs cost and why? Do you want to learn what to do if your car won’t start (even in really cold weather) or about tires and general maintenance?  

 If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”…. then you need to go to the Car Care Clinic being held at the Findlay Creek Canadian Tire!  On Thursday January 29 at 7:00 pm our Community Partner, Canadian Tire at Findlay Creek will be having an info session and demonstration to help with these issues. 

Come out and have a great time learning about basic mechanics and get expert advice from the expert mechanics at Canadian Tire!

 Space is limited to 25 participants – but future sessions will be held if there is interest.
