Hello and welcome to the web site of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa
West. Thank you for your interest in us. This, our new site, is a work
in progress and we encourage you to visit us periodically as we update and
The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa West is one of over 8000 clubs
in 70 nations with membership in excess of a quarter of a million
to serve others. Chartered in September of 1998 the Kiwanis Club
of Ottawa West has
a membership of over two dozen dedicated volunteers.
We are a breakfast
club, meeting the first and third Wednesday of each month, 7:15 at
Restaurant 1274 located in Macies Best Western Hotel on Carling
Avenue across from the Westgate Shopping Centre.
As President it has
been my pleasure to see our club continue to expand its membership
and support so many projects in our community
with both human
and financial resources. Whether we’re raising funds in the Spring
at our Lobsterfest or in the Fall at our Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Evening,
whether we’re collecting
student supplies through our Kiwanis/Staples School Bus Program
or funding the needs of our local schools, whether we’re serving
seniors where they live or serving dinners to those less fortunate,
assisting in programs for the developmentally challenged or sponsoring
Kiwanis student KClubs in our high schools, whether we’re helping
to rejuvenate a neighbourhood park or contributing to help ensure
an entire community is
a better place, The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa West is a place where
you can help others while enjoying the fun and fellowship of a
great bunch of dedicated
and likeminded volunteers.
We have been tagged as “The Little
Club Who Could”. A very
apt description. We may not be able to change the whole world,
but we can sure
help change our little corner of it, one child and one community
at a time.
Why don’t you give us a call or drop in and be our guest
for breakfast some Wednesday. We think you will find our club a
great place to make a difference.
You can contact our club line at 613-787-9977 or me directly at
613-837-0980. We look forward to seeing you.
President, Kiwanis Club of Ottawa West
