For some 50 years now the Rotary Club of Windsor has sponsored a student to attend Rotary's Adventure in Citizenship. This year John Ogilvie will join over 200 students, each sponsored by a different Rotary Club from across Canada, for four days in Ottawa, where they will learn to better appreciate the diversity of Canada and the privileges and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship.

 

The program is organized by the Rotary Club of Ottawa and typically includes discussions with the Speaker and staff members of the House of Commons, meeting with Foreign and Canadian Diplomats, and a tour of the Parliament Buildings. The students attend a special sitting of the Citizenship Court where they will have the privilege.of participating in and witnessing new Canadians receiving their citizenship. Activities include a tour of the city, evenings of traditional food and culture, and a talent show put on by the students themselves to highlight their diverse talents.

 

We look forward to John's presentation on his return so we can re-live with him some of the highlights of this unique trip.

 

This is one of many youth projects supported by Windsor Rotary...one Toonie at a time. You can help by playing the weekly Windsor Rotary Community Toonie 50/50 draw. Find out more at http://rotarytoonie.com/
