On October 16, 2018, the OSCA Board voted unanimously to endorse Senior Watch Old Ottawa South (SWOOS) as an OSCA Committee. SWOOS has been an active community group since April 2018 focusing on senior concerns such as walkability, social connections, housing, and health.
On Sunday, October 14th OSCA held our annual Fall Fest at Windsor Park. We had a blast celebrating our favourite season with the community.

The October concert of the Music at Trinity concert series features the Ottawa Guitar Trio comprised of Nathan Bredeson, François Lacelle, and Alexandre Bougie. They are preparing a wonderful program of classical music gems and music composed for some of our favorite movies, in a guitar trio setting. Since, for the most part, the music they will perform was not originally composed for three guitars, one had to arrange the music and adapt it to this new medium. For most of the program, the music was arranged by the members the trio themselves and one can appreciate the level of artistry it takes for someone to arrange a score conceived in some cases for a full orchestra to a smaller setting such as a guitar trio.
