Clubhouse on a Firm Foundation

Renovation of a century-old building is not for the faint-hearted, especially when the building has survived a century to become an architectural landmark in Ottawa, a monument to a way of life and a gathering place for generations of Ottawa families and friends.

The vision for the Clubhouse restoration was to bring new life to a grand old building, to extend its life span and make it a year-round place for community events. In fact, the project so far has resembled more of a rescue mission.

Clearly maintaining the Clubhouse has not been a priority in the past century. But why not?

One of the works available in the Save Our Firehall Online Art Auction.

SAVE OUR FIREHALL Online Art Auction

A chance to beautify your home while donating to a great cause

The Save Our Firehall Online Art Auction was inspired by several amazing individuals and families in OOS who’ve come up with unique, inventive, and creative ways to raise money for the Save Our Firehall campaign: neighbours like Shelley and Sean Kennedy, who built birdhouses, or Candace Newman and family who baked ‘Fire cookies.’

When I saw those posts on the Old Ottawa South Facebook Group, I wondered how I might contribute. Perhaps by selling or auctioning a painting? But it wasn’t until Bess Fraser contacted the Firehall with an idea to auction off one of her paintings, that the idea took hold. OSCA staff members Darcy Middaugh and Luke Sears contacted Winnie Pietrykowski and me and we started brainstorming about how we could expand this idea.
