President's Message
I am honoured to be asked to serve as President for our Club.
As this new year starts off – the 106th for our Club – the need for service in our community is greater than ever.  We must continue to find novel ways to support those in our community and forge partnerships with other service organizations and Rotary projects.  As urged by Jennifer Jones, Rotary International’s first female president (and fellow Canadian!), we must dream big about what good Rotary can do, and “Imagine Rotary” to turn those dreams into reality. 
As we prepare our plans for how we may best serve our community both locally and abroad I encourage each of us to reach out to one of our Club’s service committees to learn of the possible projects on deck for this year. Let us embrace the challenges and together imagine projects and opportunities to serve.
Carol McCalla, Rotary Club of Ottawa President, 2022-23
