Club Updates
DG  Susan Bellor attended the club's lunch meeting on Monday, July 31, 2017 during her visit to Ottawa and region. DG Sue invited members to attend the District Conference, Sept. 29 and 30th at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort. She described opportunities for a club citation from Rotary International, promoted the District's ‘Million Dollar Dinner Event’ (further details to follow) and urged all to plant trees whenever we can. (Reduces carbon dioxide and helps environment, YES!). In these photos, she is seen with Club President, Charles Melchors, Past President Angela Kelly and ADG Fay Campbell.
The Rotary Club of Ottawa Board of Directors and Committee Chairs held its year end meeting at Emerald Links Golf Club on July 12, 2017. The meeting was an opportunity to report on club activities for the Rotary year 2016-2017 and to begin the new Rotary year. Written reports from committee Chairs, Club Secretary, Treasurer and Club President, John Lark were reviewed. President John thanked all who served and highlighted a busy Rotary year. He also thanked John Clipsham, who is stepping down as Club Treasurer after 13 years in the position. Carol McCalla has graciously accepted the position.   President John passed the gavel to incoming President Charles Melchers, who spoke about a number of priorities for the club. 
The formal changeover meeting takes place on Monday, July 15 when all members and guests are able to recognize outgoing President John Lark, welcome incoming President Charles Melchers and to learn more the upcoming Rotary year. The Monday meeting will also serve as the Club's Annual General Meeting and approval of the Nomination Report and appointment of auditors.
On Friday, June 23, 2017 the “Rotary and All That Jazz” 18 hole “best ball” golf tournament was held at Emerald Links Golf & Country Club. Highlights included:
  • 18 Holes of some of the best Golf in the Ottawa Valley
  • Prizes for men’s & ladies’ closest to the hole and longest drives
  • Door prizes
  • A feast of BBQ chicken and ribs
  • Guest Auctioneer Mark Papousek, for an exciting evening’s Live and Silent Auction
Weather was forecasted to rain the full day, but golfers were blessed with dry conditions. Following golf, participants and dinner guests enjoyed fellowship, a wonderful meal and an active session of bidding on silent and live auction items. The tournament raised close to $20,000 for community and international club service projects.
Thank you to everyone involved in organizing, sponsoring and participating!!! See you next year on Friday, September 22, 2018!
The Rotary Club of Ottawa is seeking your support for the annual All That Jazz Golf Tournament, BBQ and Auction. This event is the club’s most important fundraiser and we need it to grow.
Jennifer Williams and Rick Evans are the co-chairs for this year's event. They have introduced some changes including a move in date from mid September to Friday, June 23. In addition, the full tournament registration fee has been lowered to $125 per person (includes golf, shared power cart, BBQ dinner and auction).
All members are asked to contribute. The most obvious way is to recruit a foursome of golfers. Each member of your group may register online, or you can enter their names. Payment can be made later. If you can't make it to golf, register for the dinner and auction.
