Holiday Reception -December 2018

Holiday Reception – December 2018

Once again, RHOMA hosted its annual holiday reception at our old stomping grounds of 125 Sussex – the Pearson Building – under the kind sponsorship of Global Affairs Canada Deputy Minister Ian Shugart, who also made remarks.  

The view from the 9th floor was snowy and spectacular at this time of year, and the warmth and comradeship of the assembled

100-plus RHOMA members and their guests was the best present of all, as these photos attest. 

A new note! RHOMA invited a star student pianist – Nicholas Deek -from the University of Ottawa conservatory – to play classical and seasonal music. As you can see, hidden RHOMA talents emerged as a robust choir formed around the piano!

A very jolly time was had by all – and once again we were able to appreciate all the respect and affection our unique community shares with one another.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, and a Great 2019 to you and yours!
