Endorsements

A little over a year ago one of the first people I reached out to was Michael, I had taken on a position with the Ottawa Rotary Home Foundation here in Findlay Creek. His willingness to listen and learn showed us just how big his heart is, and we are pleased to call him a friend of the Home. Michael has been a life line to me with his ongoing support which has allowed us to network & educate to so many more. Cindy Wheeler, Director of Development, Ottawa Rotary Home Foundation

A strong advocate in expanding programs and services for seniors in Barrhaven, Councillor Qaqish has assisted us through promoting our various events to seniors in Ward 22.

It is with the greatest pleasure that I support the re-election of Councillor Qaqish. Don Winchester, President, Barrhaven Seniors' Council
