A Rennie's River Elementary long-time volunteer has received recognition as one of Canada’s Favorite Crossing Guards. Dave Innes was recognized in an Assembly on mid-June, in which dignitaries, honored guests, parents, staff and students of Rennie’s River Elementary were present. Mr. Dave, as he so affectionately referred to by students, ensure the safe crossing of young learners on one of the busiest streets in the capital city, Elizabeth Avenue. Dave is out in all kinds of weather and often, as we all know, he can experience 4 seasons in one day!

Mr. Innes has been spotted shoveling the sidewalk to ensue students are visible to passing traffic and that they have a safe passage way out into the street. His sense of duty as Crossing Guard extends beyond the school and out to include the community. He has assisted the elderly from the neighbouring St. Pat’s Mercy Home, runners using Rennie’s River Trail, and even ducks from the river, in crossing the street safely.

Parents of and the staff at Rennie’s River can start their day with the confidence and knowledge that the students who walk to school are safely guided across the high traffic Elizabeth Avenue. A heartfelt thank-you to Mr. Innes, the reliable, dedicated and pleasant Crossing Guard who has not missed a single day of service to his school community.
