Happy Bucks
Gary shared his exuberance as he handled our happy bucks.
Joan dealt. Jacques drew. Joker denied.
Brad Campeau started Brew Donkey Tours six years ago and has seen his business, and the local craft beer scene, grow ever since. He offers guided tours to local breweries, and distilleries. They are both entertaining and informative.
You can join a pre-planned tours scheduled every Friday and Saturday evening, or have a private tour customized for you and your friends, clients or co-workers.

Mother's Day Roses 2019
The Rotary Club of Ottawa South sells roses for Mother's Day as an annual fundraiser.
For many years the Rotary Club of Ottawa South has sold roses for Mother's Day as a fundraiser. A dozen extra-long stem roses with individual water supplies, boxed in tissue with babies breath and wrapped with a red ribbon, for $40. And that even includes delivery in Ottawa! An exceptional price that allows people to show their love and appreciation for mom, a partner, friend, staff, etc. Thanks to generous discounts by the florist, the club is able to raise almost $20 per dozen sold.
The roses are delivered the Friday before Mother's Day, with volunteers running across the city with boxes of roses in their cars. It's wonderful to see the smiles and faces of the recipients light up. See some of the photos.
If you would like to order roses for next Mother's Day, send us an email and order now!
