  1. So happy to see this post about my dad, Roy Cottee. I loved assisting Roy during the library tours we performed in, together, as a father – daughter team.

    At age 92, Roy continues to enjoy many of his past artistic endeavours including; playing the piano, painting in watercolour and of course, some “ sleight of hand”.

    Thank you to all of the volunteers and employees of the Eastern Ontario Library System and the many wonderful youth that we met during our tours! It was a lot of fun!!
