MDW Open House featuring Former Ottawa Mayor, Jacquelin Holzman: ‘We All Win With Mentorship’.

2024-05-21 @ 18:00 - 19:30 EDT


Our keynote speaker, Former Mayor of Ottawa, Jacquelin Holzman is a consummate volunteer, with a history of being there when it counts even before being elected to City Council in 1982 and then Mayor in 1991. She resumed her volunteer activities in 1997.

Jackie is co-founder of Compassionate Ottawa, she sat on the Social Planning Council during the planning of Unitarian House, and as an Ottawa Alderman at the time assisted with the ribbon cutting at the official opening in 1984. She and her husband John, who was on the Board of Unitarian House in the beginning, have come full circle as they moved into an independent living apartment at Unitarian House two weeks before COVID hit in 2020. Jackie is now the President of the Board. We would expect nothing less!

Jackie believes we don’t get older, we get better! Join us as we hear about Jackie’s experience through the years both being a mentor and a protégé!
