In 1910, IODE Laurentian Chapter donated $17,000 to build and furnish a tuberculosis sanatorium (later the Royal Ottawa Hospital). Recently, when the hospital was rebuilt, the chapter was still there to help, this time with furnishings.

IODE Laurentian Chapter, founded in 1906, is a local wing of a national women's charitable organization - IODE - dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals, through education, community service and citizenship programs.

Jack Straw
by Somerset Maugham

Laurentian Night, Thursday, October 23
Reception at 6.30 pm
Curtain at 7.30 pm

The Linden House Theatre Company presents a delightfully “Downtonesque” period piece, full of colour, wit and romance. One of Somerset Maugham’s earliest plays, Jack Straw was first produced in 1908. With a plot that focuses on romantic disguises and dialogue that takes sharp aim at social pretension, Jack Straw more than fulfils Maugham’s intentions. “The aim of the drama,” he wrote, “is not to instruct but to please. Its object is delight.”

Venue: Elmwood Theatre, 261 Buena Vista Road. Free parking.

Proceeds going to projects of IODE Laurentian Chapter.

Tickets $25 from Jeannette Maule at 613 744 2050

IODE Laurentian Chapter is pleased to report that our 53rd Annual House and Garden Tour was a great success. We earned over $15,000, a large chunk of which will be directed to the shelters for abused women and their children. We were delighted with the increased revenue from businesses supporting our advertising efforts in our ticket booklet. We extend a huge thank you  to our members who braved the dead of winter to approach the businesses, to retailers who sold our tickets, and to our wonderful volunteers.

Tour attendees enjoyed the illustrated talks on the history of Westboro, by Bruce Elliot, and David Jeanes and also learned tips to improve their gardens with Mary Reid. Especially enjoyed, were the musical talents of pianist, Stephen Boudreau, and Ethan Balakrishnan on his violin, accompanied by Judy Ginsberg.
