A steady stream of people from the neighborhood in Stittsville visited Bell Park, the site of the future Rotary Peace Park which the Rotary Club of Stittsville is sponsoring. Many neighborhood groups came together to offer their baked goods in a giant bake sale while Rotarians were offering the opportunity to buy a brick for the Peace Maze which will be located in the centre of the park.

This year the 65th Rotary Adventure in Citizenship program held May 3rd to May 6th in Ottawa, Ontario. 201 young Canadians across the nation were sponsored by Canadian Rotary Clubs. High school students between the ages of 16 and 18 years had the opportunity to appreciate Canada's diversity and explore the Canadian identity. The participants were phenomenal and appreciative of the experience. Our Adventure team, headed up by Charles Melchers, did an absolutely wonderful job on all segments of the program. Enjoy a few quotes pulled from our AIC 2015 Facebook page;
