Christmas Kettle 2018
The Rotary Club of Ottawa South volunteered for the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle program again this year.
For many years the Rotary Club of Ottawa South has volunteered to supervise a Christmas Kettle in Ottawa's South-end for the Salvation Army. We've often been at Billings Bridge Shopping Centre  and the South Keys Loblaws store. That's where we were this year on Saturday December 1, filled with enthusiasm and good cheer from 10am to 9pm.
This year, the process has changed slightly so that each local Salvation Army church has a designated region, and manages the Christmas Kettles within that region. All proceeds raised stay in that region and help fund local initiatives, mainly as part of their family services. RCOS is fortunate to have member Rosemary Parker, who is also the Office Administrator for the Salvation Army  Ottawa Citadel on Walkley Road.
We worked in two-person shifts, making it fun time of camaraderie and reaching out to fellow Ottawans. Regardless of people's personal religion, everyone was receptive to the good work that the Salvation Army does and many were very generous.
Thanks to RCOS members Gary Pluim, Sam Monsour, Luigi Maiorino, Alex Davidson, Joan Hunter, Mack MacGregor, Rosemary Parker, Jeff Sirs, Carlo Barille, and Scott Vetter.
