Lest we forget

poppyThe Half Moon Bay Community Association would like to thank and remember all of our veterans on Remembrance Day. Half Moon Bay is also home to many current service members and we sincerely thank them for working hard to represent Canada here and abroad.

A public Remembrance Day Service and Wreath Laying will take place here in Barrhaven at John McCrae Secondary School at 103 Malvern Drive beginning at 10:30am.

Park Safety: We want your feedback

This week the issue of lighting in our parks has been brought up due to an unfortunate event at Half Moon Bay Park. The community has made it clear that violence in our community will not be tolerated and we are all thinking about how we can make our parks safer moving forward.

The Half Moon Bay Community Association wants to help find a solution. We're asking members of the community to submit your feedback to We want to hear your safety concerns and ideas; please keep them constructive.

The submissions will be discussed by the HMBCA Board of Directors with the hope of identifying actions items that we can discuss with the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Police.

Everybody deserves to feel safe in their community and we are committed to working with all Half Moon Bay residents to make this happen.
