We all, collectively, have many reasons to celebrate.
A few weeks ago, it was city hall’s approval of a Complete Streets approach to Main Street despite opposition from some councillors. That victory was made possible in part by you, our supporters, letting city hall know you support Complete Streets.
That same day, city hall voted to make the Laurier bike lane permanent; again despite opposition from some councillors. Again the victory can be credited to popular support.
Earlier in the summe,r Ecology Ottawa inked its ten thousandth signature on the petition to stop sewage spills; an effort that has all levels of government claiming they’ll participate in solving the problem. Back in March we achieved a turnaround in getting city hall to commit to a climate change action plan.
All of these steps forward and many other smaller steps too, are thanks to you and your support for Ecology Ottawa.
So it’s getting time to celebrate!
Plans are already underway for the Ecology Ottawa 2013 Eco Gala dinner which will take place on Wednesday, October 9. You should be there to celebrate with us.
Tickets sales have begun, and the event always sells out, so please buy your ticket today.
This year’s Eco Gala dinner will feature fascinating speakers, great music, glittering personalities, wonderful food and drink, a silent auction, and plenty of time for chatting. The program is coming together and every update of the promotional web page reveals even more excitement. You can see what we’ve got lined up so far and purchase your tickets by visitingwww.ecologyottawa.ca/eco-gala.
Ecology Ottawa’s strength keeps growing as we benefit from supporters like you. Your purchase of Eco Gala dinner tickets helps support the Ecology Ottawa office which in turn works with so many volunteers and makes our efforts effective. The Ecology Ottawa annual Eco Gala is a perfect way to both rejoice with friends and make a positive difference at the same time.
An entire crew of volunteers is already laying the groundwork for this year’s event so you can expect good things. We have much to be pleased about and the annual dinner is one of the best times to celebrate together those things big and small we’ve been able to achieve.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Graham Saul Executive Director, Ecology Ottawa
