Congratulations to OCA’s Sheila Perry, who received Crime Prevention Ottawa’s 2018 Volunteer Award on Monday night (November 5). Among many other volunteer activities, Sheila coordinated the Paint-It-Up project, which brought young people together to create the mural on the side of the Sens “bunker” in Overbrook Park, and has worked hard to ensure the Rideau High School building becomes a community hub.
