Please join your Rockcliffe Park Resident Association for its Annual Volunteer Reception to be held at our community building, 380 Springfield Road

The year, Linda McDonald, book sale volunteer and team leader, will be acknowledged for her many dedicated hours of work by which she, together with her committed volunteers, achieved wonderfully successful results in raising significant sums of money for use by our library – all through the eagerly anticipated annual book sale event held at our community building.

Michael Mirsky, son of Barbara Mirsky (one of the successful campaigners during the amalgamation process who helped to ensure that the Rockcliffe Village Library not be closed but rather become part of the Ottawa Public Library), has graciously agreed to offer remarks of gratitude and appreciation.

Light refreshments will be served. Following the reception, the RPRA board AGM will take place at 7:00pm. All are welcome.
