Breast cancer touches the lives of many of our friends, family, and community members. Currently 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. Since the month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; Ottawa Funeral Home conducted a fundraiser, in which we donated $1.00 for each bra collected. The response was phenomenal! We collected 223 bras from our community. A check for $250 has been sent to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in New York. The bras will be used at another fundraiser supporting the Avon 3-Day Walk. We look forward to supporting this amazing cause year after year during the month of October.

We had a group effort to support the children of our community. We won third place in the 2016 Ottawa Scarecrow Festival.
