Making a difference through Rotary Youth Exchange
When Gabriela Vessani was 12 years old, her mother took her to stay with friends in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, for the summer. “I loved it, so when I heard about Rotary Youth Exchange, I knew that was something I wanted to do,” says Vessani, who is an Interactor from São Paulo. This year, Vessani participated in the program. Hosted by the Rotary Club of Waterdown, Ontario, Canada, she stayed with four families, one of which included adopted children from different parts of the world.    “They had seven children, and it was crazy for me.

Jade will be on her way to Alicante, Spain in August for a year of cultural enrichment as part of the Rotary Student Exchange Program.  If I only knew of this program when I was finishing high school.  This Gold Coast area of Spain was not on my horizon.  Rotary encourages parents to visit their children after an adjustment period of several months.  In this case I believe the entire Rotary Club would like to accompany Jade's mom, Heather on such a trip.  Good luck Jade in all your travels.

    Muscle power from the Rotary Club of Kentville - Gord Caldwell, Pierre Hoebers, Carl Kent and Garth Gordon - lug a picnic table during Oakdene Park Re-Fresh on June 13th.
   Members took part in a gathering of over 75 people to help clean up the pond, clear brush, pick up garbage, plant an African Keystone Garden, distribute benches and picnic tables and assist with a BBQ.  It was a great success for our first year and we hope to give additional attention to the park in the future.
 

 
 

Several kids from Big Brothers, Big Sisters were part of the Rotary float for the 2015 Apple Blossom parade waving from the front of the vehicle as it made its way along the parade route. The organization is supported by the New Minas Sunrise club. This is the second year that the Rotary clubs of the Annapolis Valley have had a float in the parade.  A huge "Thanks" to New Minas Rotarian and Past District Governor Greg Coldwell for pulling the float behind his vehicle.

The Rotary Club of Kentville has recently honoured 3 Kings County residents with the presentation of a Paul Harris Fellow recognition to each during an evening event at the Ken Wo Golf and Country Club, held annually to honour all Paul Harris Fellows and Kentville Rotary's Past Presidents.  Left to right: Dr. Bill Mason; Mike Ouellette and Dr. Sandy Fraser.  The Rotary Club of Kentville has donated $1000 US dollars for each of the 3 to Rotary International which will be used in various humanitarian projects world wide.  The three are well deserving of the honour for the countless hours and contributions they have personally made to improve our lives here in the Annapolis Valley.

During this same event, an attempt was made to photograph all previous recipients of a Paul Harris Recognition that were in attendance to witness the presentation of this prestigious award.
 
The majority of persons pictured below are members of the Rotary Club of Kentville. However, by no means does this represent all outstanding Kings County recipients that have been recognized over the 91 years that the Rotary Club of Kentville has been chartered.
