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.
