A Social Event doesn’t need to be big or expensive.
July 20, 2018
Ottawa Community Housing organized a Social Event that builds connections, reduces isolation and brings a smile to people’s faces with a bucket of fresh strawberries, lemonade and a good will!
Janice Canning, Julie Picard and Lydia Botros (SE Ottawa staff) are just a few of the OCH employees who are present in the daily lives of the Russell Manor community; making efforts to build happiness for their Senior tenants. They have become a part of the Russell Manor “Family”.
Jean Cloutier, City Councillor for Alta Vista Ward, supported the event.
Everybody was busy talking, dancing (OCH invited a duo live band), and eating a cake covered with whipped cream and strawberries.
Russell Manor is one of the Ottawa Community Housing – subsidized by the government. It means that most of the tenants would not be able to participate in any of the events outside of their residence due to a lack of funds.
If you are looking for an inspiration for a small event in your community – The Strawberry Social could be one of them.
