Weekly Meeting - Lyn Rowsell - H’Art d’Ottawa

Doug Beckett, Past President of the AKtion Club, gave us an update on the current activities of the club, which has recently broken into 2 clubs, thanks to the push for membership by Harold Moore. Their motto is "People Helping People" and Lin Rowsell of H'Art of Ottawa, spoke of the art school which interacts with adults who have developmental disabilities, like the AKtion Club. The artists' growth and expression is what it is all about. Lin explained that their curriculum-based program offers students a chance to sell their work, keeping a portion and a portion goes back to the school. When the students are working, they are all creative artists, no one has a developmental disability.

Thought For The Week: Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.
