For 2001 the Club will be hosting an authentic Oktoberfest celebration in conjunction with the German community in Ottawa including the Maple Leaf Almrausch Schuhplattler Dancers http://www.gauverband.org/vereine/mapleleaf/index.html.
The event will include a fundraising component for the Club, along with many cultural activities. Gus Isaac from Nova Networks http://www.nova-networks.com/ came on board as the $25,000 presenting sponsor of the new Oktoberfest fundraiser to be held October 13/2001. Gus explained that the organization wanted to contribute more to the community and we are very glad the he met Kathleen and chose Kiwanis.
