The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has hosted our Christmas Luncheon for Seniors at the Good Companions Seniors’ Centre since 1974. Many members have supported this event, including Dominic D’Arcy who provides the entertainment, and other members including Howard Lithwick, Kanta Marwah, Guy Bourbonniere, Neil McDonald, Lynda Campbell and Barb Perrin, and others.
Bob Horlick who has been volunteering at this event for 34 years since he joined the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa and he continues to help coordinate the Seniors Luncheon to this day. Not only does he volunteer on the day of the luncheon, but he also helps to set up the room the day before, and along with his wife Joni, has coordinated little gifts for the Seniors. Peter Patafie was also a regular volunteer and once Lolachers Catering prepared the food and Peter and Bob would go to pick it up.
Bob is very committed to his community and also helps to coordinate the Citizenship Court reception where our members volunteer and serve cake and refreshments to new Canadians.
