by the Manotick Community Association

Villagers helping villagers understand, shape and celebrate our unique community.

On behalf of the Manotick Community Association, I am pleased to welcome everyone to Shiverfest 2009. With a little cooperation from Mother Nature, events will be held outside on the rink and sports fields as well as in the arena. As always, it takes many volunteers to make Shiverfest a success. Thank you to all of the volunteers and a special thanks to the Manotick BIA, Robinson's YIG, Kiwanis & Lions for their ongoing community support.   ...
