When a person is recognized with a Paul Harris Fellow, the world becomes one step closer to peace!  On Dec 7th the BEL Club had the honour of recognizing three individuals who demonstrate in their lives a shared purpose with the mission of The Rotary Foundation: World Peace and Understanding.
The Rotary Foundation Trustee Bryn Styles presented Paul Harris recognitions to Andrew Parks, Audrey Thornton and Chris Tworkowski.

At the meeting of December 7th, the BEL Rotary Club had the honor of welcoming Rotary Foundation Trustee Bryn Styles.  Through this passion and commitment, Styles furthers the work of Rotary, and acts to make the world a better place at home and around the globe. 
 
 
The BEL Rotary Club has been a proud supporter of the work of Chemong Community Care for the past several years.  At the meeting of November 30th, BEL Rotary Community Services chair Chris Tworkowski presented Denise Williams of Community Care with a light weight walker/wheel chair.  This devise will be added to the Community Care lending library.  Many seniors do not qualify for government assistance with the purchase of assistive devices, so the opportunity to borrow much needed equipment will help provide them with independence.
 
Chris also presented a cheque to support the Thursday morning social time.  It gives seniors the opportunity t0o “get out of the house” and interact with others.
 

 
The Christmas Season is truly upon us.  BEL Rotarians partnered with the Ennismore Horticultural Society in the purchase and decorating of a Christmas Tree for the Gazebo at Rotary Park.  The official lighting ceremony took place on November 29th, complete with Christmas Carols and treats compliments of the Sip ‘n Dip in Ennismore.
 

 
 
 
As we approach World Polio Day, the world is one country closer to Polio Eradication.  On August 11, 2015, Nigeria was declared Polio free, leaving Afghanistan and Pakistan the two remaining endemic countries.  On October 24th, BEL Rotarians will be conducting the annual Purple Pinkie Campaign at Bowles Valumart in Bridgenorth and FoodLand in Lakefield.  Together we can make a Polio-free world a reality.
 
 

 

The Dream Continues

The atrocities of the Khmer Rouge left a generation of Cambodian without training and education, and this has made the country one of the poorest in the world.  Education is the key to a better future.  The BEL Club is working to make this better future a reality.
