Lunch meeting was held at KS on the Keys      Scribe: Scott Vetter
  • Campbell Osler from Ottawa RC (speaker)
  • Merv Letts from Ottawa West RC
  • Caroline DeWitt from Ottawa West RC
  • Eva Hammond from Ottawa RC
  • Joan informed us that she has some tickets for the tables that our club reserved for the Somali Hope Foundation Gale: Saturday April 24; $100 - see Joan asap to buy your tickets.
  • Merv and Caroline from Ottawa West RC asked for our support selling Calendars and Mums. They are significant fundraisers: our club can earn $10/calendar sold and $3.80 per Mum sold and an additional $3.80 for delivery. Delivery should be done in pairs and they need to know by end of March if you can participate.
  • Are you a budding photographer? You can submit nature photos in high resolution and landscape (horizontal) format; they just may be selected for the calendar. (No nudes this time, Gary.)
  • Scott asked that committees send him and Patrick content for the website. It is a good opportunity to let prospective members know what our club does.
  • Golf tournament sponsorships, prizes and Tee signs, only $150 for a Tee sign, try to sell two.
  • Visit our website for up-to-date event info.
Happy Bucks
Carlo spread happiness as he collected happy bucks.
President Joan handled the 50/50 draw and was not surprised when Sam had the winning ticket. But then Sam "Lucky Man" Monsour drew the Joker!
Campbell Osler, from the Ottawa RC, became a Rotarian in 1988 at the urging of Gary Pluim. Not only is he an active Rotarian, but an active hiker as well. He and his family hiked over 100km across Baffin Island in the Tundra last year. 
He had some magnificent photos; unfortunately the hook-up to the large screen didn't work and they were only shown on his laptop, but we still got a sense of the glorious scenery. They ventured forth without a guide, but were able to rely on their own navigation and group wits. They had many hurdles and highlights, and all felt it was the best family vacation ever.
President Joan ended the meeting promptly at 1:30 pm.
Campbell Osler speaks about his family's trek across the Tundra.
