This year marks the 50th Anniversary for the Ottawa Nepean Canadians, which will be celebrated on Canada Day weekend. To celebrate this milestone two events have been organized.
The first event is the Hall of Fame Ceremony, to be held at the Ukranian Hall at 1000 Byron Ave in Ottawa on Friday, June 28th. At this event we will be reminiscing and reviewing the History of ONC and honouring a group of individuals that were instrumental in building the ONC name and history. The evening will be fun-filled and will include dinner, door prizes, a silent auction and a walk down memory lane. The 7 individuals that will be honoured at this event will be:
Builder Donald Campbell
Builder Art Neilsen
Player David MacQuarrie
Player Doug Frobel
Player Pete Hoy
Player Michael Kusiewicz
Player Cameron Pelton
The second event will be the ever-popular Alumni game which will be held at Hamilton Yards on Saturday June 29th at noon. This game is an event that is held every decade and gives those past players a chance to put on the ONC uniform again and play some ball.
Both events are critical to the continuity of our program by allowing present players and families to get to know those that came before them and fully understand the impact that ONC has had on their lives. It also allows those past players to see today's amazing group of individuals which allows them to have comfort in the ONC brand and future. In order to ensure that players and families were available to attend we have purposefully left our ball schedule open on that Friday and Saturday. Current players will play a critical role to ensuring a successful weekend and thus, we ask that you book the Friday night Hall of Fame ceremony into your calendars, along with the Alumni game on Saturday. For the Saturday, current players will be assigned tasks to ensure a smooth and successful event.

Thanks in advance and we do look forward to seeing you there.
