The Community Foundation of Ottawa is celebrating its first 25 years of working with the people of Ottawa to foster a smarter, more caring community. Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Ottawa Convention Centre on November 19th, 2012, for our Silver Anniversary Celebration. It was truly an evening to remember as we celebrated the many gifts and achievements our community has shared over the last quarter century and began to look forward to working together for an even brighter future over the next 25 years of forever…
