Summer is a great time for meeting up with friends and family. It is also a time when people in our community get together to raise money for worthwhile causes.
Earlier in the month, a golf tournament was hosted at Manderley on the Green in memory of Mark Lindsay. The proceeds supported veterans being treated with post traumatic stress disorder at the Perley and Rideau Veterans Health Centre.
On July 26, Plowing For a Cure, was hosted by the Ottawa Carleton Plowing Association at Anderson Links Golf and Country Club. This year the proceeds went to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation to buy specialized equipment for the Cancer Clinic that will help researchers tailor treatments based on an individual’s DNA.
There are a number of familiar faces at charity events like these. The Member of Parliament for Carleton, the Hon. Pierre Poilievre, the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party candidate, Goldie Ghamari, and Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt are pleased to be working with the others to make our communities better places to live and work.
As a taxpayer, it is good to see that politicians from all levels of government – federal, provincial and municipal – are talking to each other about how they can work together to better serve their constituents. No doubt they are trying to make sure our tax dollars go toward the priorities of the people of Carleton.
If you would like to have our MP participate in an event you are hosting, please contact his constituency office at (613) 692-3331 or by sending a message to him at http://pierremp.ca/contact/.
