The Rotary Club of Ottawa was pleased to welcome John Chol and other members from the South Sudanese Languages Institute here in #Ottawa. The Institute used funds received from our Club to publish newly written books for learners of South Sudanese languages.
It was a cold evening when I left my warm dormitory to go to my very first Rotary night, a networking night to be more precise. I already knew of Rotary, but I had never been to a Rotary event before. Since I had just arrived in Canada, I thought that this would be an excellent opportunity to get to know more people. How wrong I was!! Wrong because I was blessed with so much more than just ‘meeting people’. I was warmly welcomed by Kateri Clark, this year's Rotary Club President and quickly introduced to all the Rotarians and Rotaractors. They made me feel so welcome, and I immediately signed up for membership of the Rotaract (Student) Club of Ottawa South.
