Old Ottawa East Membership Drive - canvassers needed!

We are in the final push for the 2015 membership drive. There are six streets that do not have canvassers and if you or anyone you know could spare a bit of time between now and November 6th it would be a great help to ensure the community has a successful membership drive. The time commitment is roughly 1-2 hours and involves knocking on doors and asking residents to either join or renew their membership in the OOECA and delivering a flyer with details regarding the OOECA Annual General Meeting on November 11th. Instruction and membership kits are provided.
