Thanks to many Ottawa Area clubs for their donations to rebuild the pergola at Rotel. And many thanks to the volunteers who helped build it...especially Phil Powel-Smith who inspired many to take this project on. 
Last summer a group of Rotarians from the West Ottawa Rotary Club planted a pollinator garden at Rotel, the non-profit motel located beside the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Ottawa Hospital General Campus.  Phil Powel Smith, a member of that team, noticed that the pergola was in bad shape and returned to the West Ottawa Club with a recommendation that it be replaced.
