OTTAWA WOMEN'S CANADIAN CLUB
May 11, 2016
On an absolutely perfect spring day, 39 members of the Ottawa Women's Canadian Club and their friends enjoyed the first tour that the Club has sponsored in many years! We are grateful to Sandra Weedmark for her willingness to arrange tours with the intent of contributing the proceeds to the Scholarship and Bursary Funds that are maintained by the OWCC. For this tour we started off by traveling to Balderson where we enjoyed visiting the small boutiques and, of course, the cheese factory! Then, we traveled to Merrickville where participants had lunch at the venue of their choice and shopped at the many lovely boutiques in the village.

Another perfect day in terms of weather!! Once again, there were 39 participants. We boarded the bus EARLY in the morning for the long drive to Prince Edward County. We started at Huff Estates where we enjoyed lunch, a tour of the winery, and a tasting. We were then joined by a tour guide from the area who took us to three additional wineries that all provided information and tasting. By the end of the day, we had the opportunity to sample 15 different wines! The tour was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the participants who eagerly look forward to the spring 2017 tour - - to be announced!
