Colleen Hughes-Hunter retirement picnic

Dear neighbors

My name is Christie Hughes I'm the daughter of Colleen. My mom has lived in the community for 26 years. She is one of the longest running home daycares in the community and has helped raise many of the children in the neighborhood. She is loved by all and will be greatly missed as she closes her daycare doors to a well-deserved retirement at the end of June.

I would like to honor her by throwing a picnic in the park on Saturday July 13th, 2-4pm. Look for us on the Parkfield side, we will have refreshments and cake. Please help get this message out to her friends and neighbors who may want to stop by to pay tribute to this wonderful lady! Be sure to bring a lawn chair to sit and socialize. If anyone has any questions and wants to contact me, my email is or call (613) 697-6383.

BCA, on behalf of Christie Hughes
ps: There will be a rain date on Sunday July 14th, 2-4pm.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream comes to Briargreen!

Bear & Company brings a A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Briargreen Park.
  • Date: Sunday July 7th.
  • Time: 7PM
  • Suggested donation: $20 per person.
Special request; we would love to include some audience members, or neighbourhood kids, in the scenes to participate as faeries. We ask any kids to arrive 30 minutes before the 7PM start so that we can build in their part.

Bring the whole family, a picnic, something to sit on, bug spray -- and rain gear (The show will go on, unless conditions turn unsafe.)

A love-struck Duke and his Amazon queen, warring monarchs of the Fairy kingdom, mismatched rival lovers, and a hapless troupe of improbable players all get knitted up into a tangled knot of desire and hilarity. How will the course of true love ever run smooth? Leave it to Puck to unravel the Dream!

If you can't make the Briargreen performance, then check out the schedule at to catch Bear & Co. at other locations across the city.
