Club Happenings
The Rotary Club of Ottawa has a long history of welcoming exchange students to Ottawa.  As we prepare to welcome students to stay with three families in 2022 – 2023, it’s time to catch up on what’s been happening with students we hosted in past exchanges.  It’s also time to appreciate the excitement felt by our present group of Ottawa students preparing to head out in the coming school year to adventures and an immersive learning situation abroad.
