The OYCL came together on the 19th of September to donate its time and resources for the Christie Lake camp. All the combined support and major teamwork resulted in a repaired deck, painting of 24 cabins, and two new roofs at the camp…all ahead of schedule.
“With Ottawa’s extreme weather this past year, we were fortunate for such great weather during the build,” said organizer Brandon Lachapelle from PCL. “We were even more fortunate to have such hardworking volunteers who helped the OCA and OYCL to complete another successful build. We would like to express our thanks to everyone who made this exciting project possible.”
OYCL comes together annually as a team to give back to the community, and provides a platform for the young members of the Ottawa Construction Association (OCA) to build relationships within the construction industry. This year the OYCL sat with Paul McCarney, senior vp of Tomlinson Group, to discuss where they would like to direct their time and resources for the 2017 year. McCarney has dedicated his passion, time, and a voice to Christie Lake Camp for many years.
