Happy anniversary OGC!

27 10 2010

The Ottawa Gymnastics Centre (OGC) is celebrating its 50th year of operation on Saturday October 30th, 2010.

From its humble beginnings in a high school gym where equipment was packed away at the end of each night, Ottawa Gymnastics Centre now boasts one of the biggest club memberships in Canada and is recognized as a “Centre of Excellence” by Gymnastics Canada and Gymnastics Ontario.

The Ottawa Gymnastics Centre has provided a place of athletic achievement and excellence for all levels of skill, a place to partner with parents who want to grow physically healthy children, a place to inspire children to have big dreams, and a place to instill a love of physical fitness by getting kids off the couch!

The celebration will begin with an Open House at OGC from 1:00-3:00pm where guests can enjoy wine and cheese, learn about the history of the club, and meet alumni including Honorary Guest, Chief Astronaut of the Canadian Space Agency, Dr. Steven MacLean Ph. D.

In the evening, cocktails will be served in Tudor Hall at 6:00 pm followed by a dinner, silent auction, a “purple carpet” of OGC celebrities, and a presentation by Dr. Steven MacLean.
