HOPE Volleyball 2017 Recipient

By | Community Event, Fundraising

In November 2016, The Waupoos Foundation was selected as one of six Ottawa charities to receive funds from the 2017 Hope Volleyball Tournament on July 15, 2017.

“HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) is a volunteer, not-for-profit, event management organization that raises funds for community-based charities and has fun doing so.”  Learn more about HOPE

Our commitment was to provide at least 50 volunteers to help and with God’s help, we made that happen.

A HUGE thank you to all our friends who stepped up to volunteer on July 15th!

 

On November 23, 2017 we received a cheque for $25,000 from HOPE.

This money will be used to improve our cottages and that work has already begun!

Spring Clean-Up! 2017 at Waupoos

By | Community Event

Join us Saturday, May 6th from 9am – 3pm.

Come lend a helping hand as we tidy up from winter and prepare for our spring and summer programming.  Many, many tasks to complete, inside and outside and we can’t do it without your help!! We need to remove the winter tools and wrappings, bring out our summer equipment and re-awaken the pool and gardens.

Then we’ll enjoy some fellowship in the lodge and a warm meal!

RSVP here.

Fall Clean-Up 2016

By | Community Event

Waupoos Farm would like to extend a very warm-hearted thank you to all those who worked with us on the cold rainy fall clean up day. We were able to get a roof mended, leaves raked, a trench dug, laundry organized, hockey nets fixed, hockey sticks taped, and enjoyed a great and much welcomed hot chilli made by Rebecca Biffert.

A huge “Thank YOU’ to all the volunteers that joined us that cold dreary day. You were the sunlight that day!

New Roof!

Our lodge roof has been fitted with new shingles thanks to Bill Geerts of Geerts Roofing. The job was excellently and expediently done with all waste cleaned up. We are so glad to have our roof back in top shape! Thanks Bill!

Here are some of the Biffert kids showing off the new shingles:
