Meeting tonight

The Ottawa Support Group for People Who Stutter will meet this week Wednesday, March 17th, 7:00 – 8:30pm. We now meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month.

This will be a special session led by Dr. Pat Roberts, who is a professor of Speech Pathology at the University of Ottawa. For this meeting and this meeting only we will change venue. We will meet at the University of Ottawa main campus, at Fauteux Hall, 57 Louis-Pasteur Private, Ottawa, ON K1N 6N5, room 235. This is the building of the Faculty of Law, right in the middle of the University campus, across the lawn from the main library. The back of the building overlooks King Edward Avenue. Arrows will be placed around the building to point the way to the meeting room. The room is up a very short flight of stairs from the main lobby. If in doubt, maps of campus are easy to find on-line.

Update: Meeting location and day of the week is changing again!

The Ottawa Association of People Who Stutter will meet this week Wednesday, February 15th, 7:00 – 8:30pm. We meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. The next meetings will be March 1 and 15.

This meeting will be a little bit more informal, as we don’t have the meeting room at the library.

We will meet at the entrance of the Ottawa Public Library Main Branch at 120 Metcalfe St, Ottawa. Since the room was unavailable this week, we will meet first at the main entrance of the building at 7pm and then move to a cafe nearby.

New meetings: New day, New location!

We are pleased to announce that our group has a new dynamic leader who has revamped our meetings and agenda. Camilo recently moved to Ottawa and he is bringing fresh ideas and new commitment to our group.

OAPWS plans to meet at the The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre, 1750 Russell Rd, Ottawa, this Thursday, November 3rd. Camilo will personally meet people at the main entrance of the Centre at 7pm, and then move to the meeting room. Continue reading “New meetings: New day, New location!”
