Aaron Cayer awarded Paul Harris Fellow

Aaron, son of member Allan Cayer, has partnered with our club in several of his fundraisers and local initiatives. For many years Aaron has raised funds, created events and started initiatives to benefit youth. In 2012 he founded For Pivots Sake, an active nonprofit organization focused on engaging and mentoring youth in the Ottawa community. He also helped establish the Charlie Bowins Skateboard Park in Downtown Ottawa. An initiative that our club helped raise funds for.
Although Aaron is not a Rotarian, it is obviously in his DNA and his actions. His concern for others and getting involved to make things better is admirable. RCOS is thrilled to call Aaron a Friend and, now, a Paul Harris Fellow.

Robin Spencer, his mentor Eva Hammond and President Dave Gough.

Robin Spencer earns a second Paul Harris Fellow!

Robin already has a Paul Harris Fellow, and through his ongoing giving to the Rotary International Fund, has earned a second award.
Robin is a wonderful example of leading by example Not only does he give of his time in supporting Rotary club events, but he also regularly gives to Fund so that Rotary can support hundreds of initiatives around the world.
