“One Can Make a Difference” – President’s Rose – Dominic D’Arcy

Dominic joined our club in 1989 sponsored by Past President Tom Spence. His contribution to our club has been invaluable, particularly to our Senior Citizens and Hands-On Committees. He is affectionately known by many as the “Singing Policeman” and he never refuses to entertain the guests at our Seniors’ Christmas Luncheon, or during our Seniors’ bus tours and barbecues. He is a big hit with the children at our Family Christmas Party (which is coming up on December 16th) and the children love to get up on the stage and be a part of his entertainment. He has received many awards including the Key to the City, the Governor General’s Award for Community Service, and, the United Way Community Builder Award. Dominic is an Everyday Hero and illustrates how, One Can Make a Difference. Thank You to Gerry Arial, owner of The Silver Rose, for his contribution of providing the Rose for our weekly luncheons. 196 O’Connor Street, Ottawa 613-238-8236 http://www.thesilverrose.com
