Every year ROKS recognizes Kanata students that exemplify the principles of Rotary with a bursary award.  The students are in their final year of high school and have made significant contributions in community service and demonstrated leadership skills.  This year we have selected 3 students to receive our bursary,  Nazifa Tanzim of A.Y. Jackson, Yusuf Hamidi of Earl of March and Sienna Brown of Sacred Heart.  The awards were presented at the Club meeting on 19 July at the Luna Café.

LOCAL ROTARY CLUB TO HONOUR

 JIM PERKINS OF THE CAPITAL CITY CONDORS

On April 23, 2014 The Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise will be honouring Jim Perkins with a Paul Harris Fellowship for his work with the Capital City Condors Hockey Team.

 

The Capital City Condors is an ice hockey team for youth who are unable to play for any other hockey team due to a disability.  The Program is a highly rewarding experience for players, parents and volunteers as children, youth and young adults who only dream of playing hockey see their dreams come true and their abilities progress.

The Back Pack project has been completed for another year, and thanks to the generosity of Kanata Walmart and their shoppers, it was enormously successful!

“We are overwhelmed with the response of the Kanata community for our project this year. At last count we surpassed the goal of providing 200 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to local students”, says Kathleen Ellis, the Rotary Club project leader.  

The club started the backpack project 3 years ago and has increased the number of backpacks distributed every year. This year the final total stood at 210 back packs and 4 boxes filled with school supplies. 
 
THANK YOU
WE LIVE IN A CARING COMMUNITY!

A big Thank You to:


-    Everyone that made a donation
-    Park Ridge Place Tenants
-    All the Volunteers that purchased, sorted supplies, filled & stored the Back Packs
-    Walmart Kanata – their Customers, Staff & Management
-    Scotiabank (Terry Fox & Campeau Drive)

Rotary International News -- 9 September 2009 

Almost two decades ago, Cyril Noirtin, then a high school student from Nancy, France, received a special gift from Rotary: a chance to participate in an exchange to Wisconsin, USA, hosted by the Rotary Club of Lake Country-Hartland.

Noirtin had no idea that the one-year Rotary Youth Exchange  trip would change his life and personality.
