Rideau Township Historical Society Presents: The Ties that Bind; North Gower, Marlborough and the First World War

Owen Cooke

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War – the Great War to its participants.

Over the past few years the Rideau Archives Branch, City of Ottawa Archives, and the Rideau Township Historical Society have attempted to identify and document our lost soldiers and airmen from the First World War.  Now we have developed an exhibition to highlight their sacrifice, and the service of the soldiers who did come home.

The exhibition will open at Rideau Archives Branch, 6581 Fourth Line Road in North Gower during Doors Open Ottawa, Saturday and Sunday, 2-3 June 2018.

We have identified 45 soldiers, airmen, and one nursing sister associated with old North Gower and Marlborough Townships who were killed or died on service.  Not all enlisted here, but all had an association with the area.

This exhibition brings together archival documents, photographs and letters, combined with original objects from the First World War to highlight both military and civilian service during these traumatic years.

 Private Cecil Meadows a Home Boy living in North Gower Township who enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force in 1914.  He died at the battle of Passchendaele in 1917, but his body was never found.

SOLDIERING ON: RICHMOND THROUGH THE DECADES
MAY 26, 2018
GOULBOURN MUSEUM
2064 HUNTLEY ROAD
1:30 PM

This year being Richmond’s 200th celebration, the Goulbourn Museum staff will be making a presentation on the history of Richmond. Through their collection of artefacts, the Museum staff will unearth the history of Richmond and take us through the significant events that influenced the oldest military settlement into what we know as Richmond nowadays.

After the war in 1812, Richmond was a military settlement being recognized as such in 1818. In 1922 the military handed over control of Richmond and many civilians remained behind and Loyalist settlers arrived. Through their industrious ventures, the residents of Goulbourn Township were well supported and the area continued to grow.

Come and learn more as the Goulbourn Museum staff share the integral part that Richmond played in our local history and Canada’s. The event is free and refreshments will be served. Bring your family, friends and neighbours as everyone is welcome.

From IBD Agony to Golf Tee Philanthropy – May 26 Swing Back at Crohn’s and Colitis Charity Golf Tournament

From IBD Agony to Golf Tee Philanthropy – May 26 Swing Back at Crohn’s and Colitis Charity Golf Tournament

WHAT: First annual Swing Back at Crohn’s and Colitis Charity golf tournament in support of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.

Crohn's and colitis (ulcerative colitis) are a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). IBD inflames the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and disrupts the body's ability to digest food, absorb nutrition, and eliminate waste in a healthy manner. IBD severely impacts quality of life through ongoing debilitating symptoms, reduction in ability to work, social stigma, management of bathroom access issues, difficulty with physical intimacy, and restriction in career choices. Canada has among the highest reported prevalence and incidence rates of Crohn’s and colitis in the world: more than 1 in every 150 Canadians have Crohn’s and colitis, and over 10,200 new cases are diagnosed every year.

To date (May 16), over $10,000 of funds have been raised for the tournament. Our top sponsor is Flora Hall Brewing.

WHO: Organizers – Neil Kothary and Daniel Wachna (friends)

Over 72 attendees – including young professionals, medical researchers, and individuals with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

Sponsors – over 20 companies including Flora Hall Brewing, KPMG, Deloitte, Sherwin Williams, Café Deluxe, and Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions.

WHY: Neil and Daniel are both diagnosees of inflammatory bowel disease and are hosting this charity golf tournament to help drive efforts to bring awareness and putt an end to Crohn's and ulcerative colitis.

Neil was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 15 years ago (at age 13). Since his diagnosis, he has undergone several different drug treatments as well as over 10 surgeries. Furthermore, Neil has had an ileostomy bag for almost 6 years.

Daniel was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 3 years ago after spending a week in the hospital and is now managing the disease with daily medication.

Despite everything, Neil and Daniel have managed to live a mostly normal life, thanks a large part to the support they have received from their respective family and friends. And despite everything, inflammatory bowel disease does not take away from Neil and Daniel’s personalities and positive attitudes in life.

Today Neil and Daniel are giving back to Crohn's and Colitis Canada through fundraising efforts.

WHERE: Manderley on the Green - 5920 Prince of Wales Dr, North Gower, ON K0A 2T0

WHEN: May 26 9:00AM – 3:30PM EDT

  • 9:00AM - Registration
  • 10:00AM - Tee off
  • 2:00PM - Lunch

We hope to see you there!
