This year the 65th Rotary Adventure in Citizenship program held May 3rd to May 6th in Ottawa, Ontario. 201 young Canadians across the nation were sponsored by Canadian Rotary Clubs. High school students between the ages of 16 and 18 years had the opportunity to appreciate Canada's diversity and explore the Canadian identity. The participants were phenomenal and appreciative of the experience. Our Adventure team, headed up by Charles Melchers, did an absolutely wonderful job on all segments of the program. Enjoy a few quotes pulled from our AIC 2015 Facebook page;
We are very pleased to have Bekir Akca, a staff member of Turkish Embassy in Ottawa and a student at the Carleton University, join us as a member of our club.
On this day, we also warmly welcomed Marcus Hewitt who is with CMA, a finance firm for Canadian physicians, as a member of our club.
Both young men have been connected with Rotary for a long time and we welcome them as full fledged Rotarians of our club.
On the exact same day, our numbers grew even more with the induction of all the new members of the Rotary Metro Club of Ottawa, a satellite club of the Rotary Club of Ottawa.
Thanks to the smiling faces of the members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa, the members of the Metro Rotary group and the Rotaractors, we encouraged the local citizens to donate the food equivalent of the overflowing bin and 3 large shopping cards PLUS $633.15 in Cash!
Hungarian Rotary Exchange Student Kira Panta's trip to Canada is also a story about "firsts" -- flying for the first time and her early impressions about Canadians. Kira is being hosted for the 2014-2015 school year by the Rotary Club of Ottawa.
