    College students help the hungry

    EMC news - Algonquin College public relations students are organizing a series of fundraisers to support their Help Halt Hun-ger campaign.

    Students were put in groups and asked to speak about their chosen cause to see which the class as a whole would support, and Shepherds of Good Hopes soup kitchen and grocery program came out on top.

    In Ottawa a lot of people are passion-ate about this, said first-year student Curtis Vermette. Its very difficult for people to live on the streets and around this time of year a lot of people lose their jobs.

    Each of the groups in the class have de-veloped a fundraising event to support the campaign with its own unique event name and ways to raise funds.

    The food programs at Shepherds of Good Hope dont receive any funding at any level, said Rob Eady, communications advisor for the Shepherds.

    We rely generally on the public, he said. The money raised is going to go feed-ing the 300 to 400 people that go through our soup line every day and the 200 families each week that come through our grocery program.

    New parks, splash pad to be built by fallBrier Dodgebrier.dodge@metroland.com

    EMC news - Two new parks will be built in Orleans at the Summerside Development at Brian Cobourn Boule-vard and Portobello Boulevard by fall.

    The parks are being built through a front-ending agreement, meaning the city will pay back the developer, Mat-tamy, over several years.

    While the city is front-ending $549,023 of the cost, Mattamy is pay-ing for $355,279, which will allow ad-

    ditional features to be built. The park for phase one of the de-

    velopment has a puddle rink in the winter, a play structure, sandbox and swings, as well as grass for a general recreation area, said Susan Murphy, a vice-president with Mattamy Homes.

    The phase two park hasnt been ap-proved, but the company has proposed a mini-soccer field, play structure and splash pad, which Murphy said she ex-pects to be approved.

    Coun. Stephen Blais said that Orleans has had an issue in the past with new develop-ments having to wait years before recreational facilities are built.

    In the Avalon community, in some cases theyve been

    there six, seven years and the parks arent built, he said. Now their kids are teenagers and the types of recreational activities have changed but theyve paid for this park.

    The Summerside develop-ment will see 385 new homes built, with some phase one residents already occupying

    their homes. Phase two of the develop-

    ment will begin in August, with the first occupants mov-ing in in December, Murphy said.

    The phase one park is lo-cated west on Portobello Boulevard, next to Sunshine Crescent. The phase two park

    is located within the develop-ment, and will be accessible by taking Summer Days Walk from Portobello Boulevard.

    The concept drawing has been released for the phase one park, and the phase two park is waiting on approval from the city before construc-tion can start.

    Front-ending pact cuts wait for parkAn artists sketch shows the expected layout of a new park for the corner of Portobello Road and Sunshine Crescent.
