Bulletin: The Senators In Your Community From March 2 to March 8

Ottawa Senators
OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators’ year-long commitment to community outreach programs throughout the National Capital Region continues. The following is a look at the club’s community schedule from Friday, March 2, to Thursday, March 8.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart presents I Love To Skate program wrapup party

The Senators and Canadian Tire Jumpstart, in partnership with the Sens Foundation and the City of Ottawa, will host the end-of-year wrapup skating party for the Canadian Tire Jumpstart presents I Love To Skate program on Sunday, March 4, from noon to 2 p.m. at Scotiabank Place.

This will mark the conclusion of the second year of the I Love To Skate program partnership. It provides financially disadvantaged children in neighbourhoods across Ottawa with the opportunity to receive a pair of skates and helmet, in addition to skating lessons from qualified instructors at the city’s outdoor rinks.   Sunday’s finale will see each of the 400 participants and members of their immediate families enjoy the opportunity to skate on the same ice surface as the Senators. To highlight I Love To Skate season’s successes, the participants and their families will be joined by dignitaries from Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the Sens Foundation and City of Ottawa.

Communities involved in the program were identified by the City of Ottawa through an application process, which later saw children obtain a voucher redeemable at a local Canadian Tire retailer to purchase the helmet and skates required to participate in the program.

Senators Alumni Road Game Parties


Throughout the 2011-12 regular season, the Senators will be holding Road Game Parties at Boston Pizza restaurants throughout the Ottawa area. A Senators alumni member will be on hand from the start of the game through the first intermission, mingling with fans and signing autographs at each event.

Sunday, March 4, at Florida at 6 p.m.
Senators Alumni member Fred Barrett will be at Boston Pizza at 3884 Innes Rd. in Orleans.

Tuesday, March 6, at Tampa Bay at 7:30 p.m.
Senators Alumni member Ted Bulley will be at Boston Pizza at 1640 Carling Ave. in Ottawa.

Spartacat Appearances

Spartacat, the Senators’ ambassador of fun, will participate in this weekend’s Ottawa Senators Initiation Program FUN Days – a series of scrimmage games featuring local minor hockey teams which is taking place at the Bell Sensplex. Sparty will be at Sensplex on both Saturday, March 3 (from noon to 1 p.m.), and on Sunday, March 4 (from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.). Later on Sunday, Spartacat will skate with children at the Canadian Tire I Love to Skate event at Scotiabank Place before concluding his week’s activities with a Sens @ School assembly on Tuesday, March 6, at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School (795 Watters Rd., Orleans). The assembly begins at 10:50 a.m.
