Did you hear? Easter’s almost here!!!

The HMBCA proudly announces the return of our annual community Easter Egg Hunt. Bring the kids out and let them fill their baskets with all the Easter eggs they can find. For every 10 eggs collected the kids can exchange them for a treat (nut-free table will be available). There will be some special royal and Jedi guests for the kids to meet and take pictures with, so don't forget to bring your cameras!

There will also be a special prize draw for a dinner for 2 at Kelsey’s Barrhaven, for any Half Moon Bay grownups that would like to register as a member of our community before or at the event. Registration with our organization allows you to access "member’s only" products, services, and information on our website and you will be automatically entered into any future registration prize draws – plus, it’s absolutely free! All HMBCA members will be eligible to win.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Heroes of Half Moon Bay

Ottawa set a new one-day snowfall record of 50cm on February 16th, 2016. Many people were faced with vehicles that were completely snowed in. Others were unwell or injured at home and unable to shovel themselves out. Then there were those that struggled to get home from work, their kids from daycare, get out to work, or even get to the hospital because their vehicles were stuck on their own streets. So many in the city were frustrated and at their wits end. This is how our community of Half Moon Bay stepped up and handled the situation. Way to go HMB!!!
