The Rotary Club of Parry Sound has partnered with Scotiabank, Harry’s nofrills and the Salvation Army to donate Christmas hampers so families in our area who are in need can have a Christmas turkey dinner.
Please help us again this year.  A donation of $20.00 buys an aluminum roasting pan, potatoes, onions, carrots, cranberries, stuffing and gravy mixes, and a turkey that feeds at least 6 people.  Our goal is to feed 100 families.
Look for Donation jars at local business, go to Scotia bank or contact any Rotarian.  Please make cheques payable to the “Parry Sound Rotary Trust”.
 

 
 

 

In October 1976, Rotarian Ken Dobson and I attended the Canadian Rotary Institute in Peterborough , Ontario . One of the sessions dealt with fund raising. An idea that caught our attention was one where a Rotary Club sent a $10.00 cheque to one hundred Rotary clubs around the world asking them to send back an item of interest from their country. All items received were then auctioned off at a gala promoting world understanding. Not only did they receive interesting items at a far greater value than $10.00, most Rotary Clubs returned the $10.00 cheque. Ken and I discussed the idea and felt it had an interesting fundraising dimension but more importantly, it had potential to create a greater global awareness and an appreciation for others.

 

At the time, I was teaching Grade 8 at McDougall School, Parry Sound. Ken and I decided that I would approach my principal, Mr. Bud Stevenson, to see about involving my Grade 8 class in contacting one hundred schools around the world inviting them to send us a package of information and items from their country. In lieu of sending them $10.00, the McDougall students would prepare a package of items and information representing the Parry Sound area and send it to them. 

 

 
 
 

ADG Margaret Walton from the Rotary Club of Bracebridge spoke to our Club on April 2nd. Margaret is also currently chair of the World Community Service Committee.

Margaret spoke on the project spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst - Rotary Wheels for Learning.
