New Phone number for St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church: 613-656-2222

New Phone number for St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church: 613-656-2222
In an effort to reduce costs for the church and eliminate the problem of wrong numbers calling the church for taxi service, the board of managers has changed telephone providers. The cost of our previous provider was an average of $150 a month for the telephone only. After review of four local providers, the board of managers selected ACN who can provide phone, voice messaging and WI-FI/internet services for $82.95 + HST per month. This will result in a savings of approximately $600 a year for St. Paul’s!

As an added bonus, with this installation, and when we pay each monthly bill ACN will donate the cost of a meal for a child in our locality! We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sharlene Fawcett, the ACN representative who helped us obtain this service and donated the digital phone to the church. Thank you Sharlene!

Angelic Vocals
Kelli Trottier toured much of the world as a featured soloist in the Sensational String Production, Bowfire for nine years, “The finest lineup of fiddle and violin virtuosi ever assembled on one stage.”

As a triple treat, Kelli brings her crisp fiddling, Angelic voice and fiery stepdance to all of her performances. Her talents carry her to stages across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and the Far North, making fans and friends at every venue along the way.

Crisp Fiddling
Kelli has performed for Canadian soldiers in the Middle East and the Canadian Arctic. She has brought twenty thousand NHL Ottawa Senators Fans to their feet many times as the featured mid-game entertainer. More highlights for Kelli include performing for Sir Sean Connery’s Dressed to Kilt several times in NYC and for his private 80th birthday party in the Bahamas.

Her art was developed from deep and lasting Scottish and French roots, and together with other influences of contemporary and traditional music, Kelli shaped her performing and recording career. She has earned a dedicated and growing following and glowing accolades from promoters, organizers and fans.

In addition to her extensive performing experience, Kelli continues to be a highly sought-after instructor and judge of fiddle and stepdance events across Canada and parts of the U.S. She has been nominated three times for Fiddle Player of the Year by the Canadian Country Music Association and has performed live and in studio with George Fox, The Family Brown, Randall Prescott, Wayne Rostad, Lucille Starr and more. Most recently, Kelli was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame!
