OTTAWA WOMEN'S CANADIAN CLUB
May 31, 2017
We are doing something right, another beautiful sunny day for our trip to Brockville to visit two Ontario Historic Trust Sites.
There were 40 OWCC members and their friends on the bus.
We toured Fulford Place mansion where we saw marvelous furnishings and learned the
story of Senator Fulford, had lunch at the restored Mill Restaurant and then on to the
Homewood Museum where we discovered the story of Dr. Solomon Jones. The group had an enjoyable day filled with Ontario history.

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!
