The Cumberland Community Association would like to acknowledge and extend a warm thank you to the generosity of the President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama' at Ottawa, Aleemuddin Ahmed and their community. The CCA were welcomed to use their property in the old school building for our meetings for the first half of the year. From the letter below it is clear that the building which has layed dormant for years will again become a centre of activity. We look forward to the additional activity in the village.
Killing two birds with one stone, we are auditioning for both and because we would like to give out scripts as soon as possible, Vintage Stock Theatre thought: "Why not have auditions for the Murder Mystery and Shades at the same time!" Audition Dates, Times & Locations:

Monday May 12th, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm at Dymon Storage, 4338 Innes Rd, Ottawa

Cumberland Village is very pleased with the approval of Budget 2014, $4 million of road renewals will be invested in Cumberland Village. The safey of OR174 will be improved by repaving of the entire surface from Trim to Cameron as well as shoulders to facilitate safe cycling. Quigley Hill Road intersection will also be improved.
We are extremely pleased and thankful to the City of Ottawa for an $8,000 grant to build a bridge across the creek on the community's Angus Wilson property next to the museum. We were lucky enough to secure this money from their 2013 budget. This is the first step in a community project to enhance the accessibility to this land by building a network of walking trails while preserving it as a natural park.
