Join Us to Celebrate Our 100th Anniversary of Service

Club Updates
This was a project initiated to celebrate our 100th year of Rotary in Ottawa. The Rotary Club of Ottawa took the lead with support from the 100th Anniversary Committee, made up of Presidents of all clubs in the City.  Club President John Lark (2016-2017), Julie Cugalj (Anniversary Projects Chair) worked with City officials to obtain approvals. Not an easy task!
The model for the Rotary Bench was inspired by a similar project in Julie’s home city of Welland, Ontario.  The same company was contracted to manufacture and install the Ottawa Bench. John Lark was on hand during installation in August, 2017.
The official ‘unveiling’ of the bench was held on Monday, September 11, 2017. On hand were Rotarians Nabil Oudeh (PDG), Club President Charles Melchers,  John Lark, Julie Cugalj, Mayor Jim Watson and City Councillor, Jean Cloutier, Ward 11 (Alta Vista).  The Rotary Bench is prominently located close to the north entrance of City Hall.
A huge Thank You to Susan Scott from Councillor Jean Cloutier's office for all her help. Many thanks also to the City of Ottawa Infrastructure staff. A special Thank You to Leen DeBlieck who drove from Norwich, Ontario to deliver and help install the bench.

"Come Fly With Us"

On Saturday, September 30, 2017, the Ottawa Flying Club and the Ottawa Rotary Club are holding the 59th Annual Fly Day, a unique event that provides the public an opportunity to see Ottawa from above, in support of a local charitable organization.

The Fly Day event raises funds for the Ottawa Rotary Home, which provides respite care to families of children with physical disabilities. This year 's Fly Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm, weather permitting. The event is held at the Ottawa Flying Club, 20 Lindbergh Private (off Hunt Club just east of Riverside Drive).

At Fly Day, people can take 20-minute sightseeing flights over the city. The cost is $45 per person, and the flights are provided by Ottawa Flying Club pilots. Fly Day is a wonderful opportunity to see the nation's capital from the air and is a popular event for families. Fly Day is timed to view the fall foliage at its peak.
