News & Upcoming Events

Accepting applications for Winter Village to Sao Paulo Brazil (V-2014-005), which runs Dec 26th to the third week in January.

 

First Board Meeting - For those of you on the board, or interested in joining the board, the first meeting will be Tuesday September 9th at 7pm at the home of Christopher Duschenes, the new chapter chair. Board members, expect an email with more details. If you would like to participate in the board, and help to keep CISV going strong in Ottawa, please contact chair@cisvottawa.ca.

 

Travel Tales - On Sunday Sept 21st at 7pm, come and join us at Southminster Church Hall (Bank and Aylmer) to hear stories from returning delegates who were away this summer on villages, interchange, step-up, peace bus, national camp and seminar camps. You can also hear about the local Monsters Village the chapter hosted. Each delegation should come prepared to give a 5 min presentation (skit) about their summer, so delegations will want to get together before hand (ie. that afternoon/supper) to reconnect and plan things out. Can't wait to hear all the stories, learn a couple new energizers and see some of the things people brought back.

 

Adults volunteering and leaders need a police check.

Bonds that never die , friendships that last a lifetime , cuz this life's too short to live.
Relationships that linger , memories that begin to relapse , cuz moments like these flood the human spirit with eternal nostalgia.

CISV , a nurturing benefit which precedes ever lasting friendships.
