On September 25th, 2022, our Car Rally took place. The Rotary Club of Ottawa Bytown partnered with the Ottawa Home Foundation to raise funds and have fun in a nice event that allowed participants to enjoy the Ottawa landscape while performing tasks with family and friends. This year the path took participants to visit great places along the Rideau Canal. At Merrickville, participants were able to enjoy the beautiful town while learning about its historic background. The Rally started at the Ottawa Rotary Home and ended at the same place, where participants and organisers enjoyed drinks and snacks while sharing its adventures during the Rally.
