Mr. Chamberlain was awarded the Military Cross in recognition of his "exemplary gallantry during active operations against the enemy on land." In 1962, Mr. Chamberlain became a devoted member of the Manotick Legion, founding the Youth Education Committee and student bursary program, and received the Legion's 75th Anniversary Medal in 2001.

Rideau River Access

River Access Sign
River Access Sign

The Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association, with City of Ottawa funding, has installed 12 Public Water Access signs in 2016 to indicate properties that provide safe access to the Rideau River to launch a kayak, fish, or just enjoy the view. Most of these parkettes are between houses or are just a pathway so aren't easy to find without the signs.
