The Glebe Centre Landscaping Project
The Rotary Club of Ottawa South (RCOS) is providing a cash donation, some sweat equity, and facilitating in-kind donations from local companies to assist the Glebe Centre with their front entrance upgrade.
On Saturday morning (Oct 1) RCOS members were digging, hauling, dumping, piling, planting, stomping, watering, and having a great time working together in the spirit of friendship and goodwill.
RCOS also rallied some neighbourhood support and saved the Glebe Centre many thousands of dollars.

- Landscape Depot is discounting the cost of the trees and shrubs; donating equipment and a certified Horticulturalist to oversee the project (thanks to RCOS member Leo Saracino, Independent Contractor)
- Peter Knippel Nursery is donating 500 Daffodil bulbs (thanks to RCOS member Dawn Cooper, Canadian Cancer Society – Ottawa Branch)

Despite a definite chill in the air, Round-up for Literacy 2011 Last Friday night was a great success. Check out some photos! Just over 200 people braved the cold for a delicious Lone Star Catering BBQ and outstanding music from Ridin’ Shotgun. Their super-tight blend of blues, rock and country was enjoyed by everyone, young and old. Thanks are due to the committee, and particularly to Maria Saracino and Monique Warrack were truly pillars on which this event rested. I really appreciate the help of all Rotary Ottawa South and Rotoract Ottawa members for selling tickets and sourcing prizes and silent auction items.
Thank you to all who bought tickets and silent auction items for your support, hope that you had a great time and look forward to seeing you at Round-up for Literacy 2012 (perhaps in warm August!). And shaving my head raised a good chunk of money, so we’ll need to find a victim/volunteer for next year! All proceeds from the event assist several local literacy projects and high school bursaries supported by the Rotary Club of Ottawa South.

Rotary Club of Ottawa South welcomes Dawn Cooper as our newest member.
The Rotary Club Ottawa South held a BBQ on Saturday, June 25, 2011 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ROTEL. Despite the clouds and intermittent showers, over 60 invitees attended the event, including Mayor Jim Watson.
New Rotary Clubs are rare and starting a Rotaract Club is even more exceptional. So we are doubly blessed in Ottawa to have a committed group of capable young leaders to establish such a club. March 23, 2011 we had a dinner and meeting at the Hunt & Golf Club to officially charter the Ottawa Rotaract Club. District Governor Katie Burke, Assistant Governor Drew Antrobus and RCOS President Terry Roman presided over the enjoyable and motivating evening. View photos..
The RCOS was chartered in June 1967 specifically to serve the needs of the swiftly growing community in the southern part of the National Capital Region.
From the day of founding, the Club has focused on community service and finding ways to augment the many services offered to children, seniors and the disadvantaged in Ottawa South.
The club's flagship project is ROTEL, a 54 room motel facility that serves patients and families in Ontario who have need of accommodation as a result of medical treatment at Ottawa hospitals, particularly the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
The club does not forget its international committments and has sponsored many projects in developing countries to help build or improve schools, sanitation and water facilities.
