Rotary District 7810

Stories

 
Sylvie and I are very excited about the coming Rotary year, I have worked very closely with PDG Michael Walsh and Sylvie has learned a lot from Francine.  This journey started 3 years ago and we have been given great advice, mentorship and training to prepare us for the year.
Our District Team is well informed and ready as well, we could not possibly try to move forward without their assistance.
As with the work that the President's needed to do to prepare for their year, it is now time to step forward.
We begin our club visits much like Mike did with the Presque Isle club first, so be kind.
I started in Rotary 2002 with the Moncton West and Riverview club, I wish to take this time to also thank everyone of their members for their quick wits and guidance through the years.  The move over to the Dieppe Rotary club was one taken with much thought but when it came down to location and meeting times it all fit, They met just down the road from my office (this was before they closed down Crystal Palace, Ramada).  I am shy speaking French so I have looked at the move to Dieppe RC as an opportunity to improve my confidence with speaking French.
As President "Ravi" has asked let's work and focus on becoming "A Gift To the World"
See everyone soon.

Fred Clark was guest speaker at the July 28th meeting. He presented information on the Care to Share Community Center to be located in Carlingford. Fred started the Care to Share project fourteen years ago and has almost single-handedly made it into a valuable community service, providing donated appliances, clothing and household items to needy families at no cost. Work is expected to begin on the Center in September with the help of volunteers. The estimated cost of the building is $200000.

The Perth-Andover Rotary Club and the Fort Fairfield Rotary Club held their combined Annual Meeting at the Aroostook Valley Country Club on June 26. It was an enjoyable time of fellowship, good food and awards. DG Pat Perry joined us for the celebration. The two clubs from two countries have been holding their annual meetings together for several years, which we believe is rare in the world of Rotary.

The Club invited families & attendees of Camp Rotary to a dinner and presented a contribution of $6,950 to Easter Seals EO Julia Laitham. Some of the attendees were at Camp and unable to attend the dinner.

This is the largest contribution we have ever been able to make.  There are many communities and businesses that made this possible by supporting our Annual Dinner & Auction and our Raffle Calendars.

The Rotary Club of Newcastle recently awarded Paul Harris Fellows to three deserving individuals from Miramichi.

Steve Myles has been involved in the community as a member of the Miramichi Kinsmen Club and the Miramichi Hospital Foundation. He has been president/chairperson of both organizations, as well as holding most executive positions along the way. As a Kinsmen, he initiated both the "Pay It Forward" and "KIVA" programs, and has been twice honoured with Kinsmen of the Year. In his role with the Miramichi Hospital Foundation, he chairs the Miramichi Cares Charity Golf Classic, as well as being involved in various initiatives which have raised in excess of 3 million dollars for local hospital equipment. He is a founding partner of Myles-Garrish Financial Group.

Donnalu Derry has been a member of the Newcastle Rotary Club for several years, where she has been a great contributor to our club's success.  As a member of the pond hockey committee, she was responsible for the setting up and tearing down of the site, as well as coordinating the volunteers needed for this. She has been the Foundation Chair for the club and very involved in our local "purple pinkie" campaign, part of Rotary International's Polio elimination fund-raising efforts. Donnalu is a co-owner of Match-It Supplies Ltd.

Melanie Daley was recognized by District Governor Patricia (Pat) Perry for her planning and organization of the District 7810 Conference, which involved Rotarians from across New Brunswick and northern Maine coming to Miramichi. Melanie is a former member of the Newcastle Rotary Club, where she served on the executive in the position of Sgt-at-Arms, and helped out with many fundraisers within our club. Melanie is a co-owner/manager and salesperson for Royal LePage Miramichi River Realty.

All three individuals give of themselves to their community in many more ways than be described in a few lines. The Rotary Club of Newcastle is very proud to recognize these deserving individuals.

Rotary was founded by Paul Harris in 1905 in Chicago. Giving a Paul Harris Fellow is the highest honour a Rotary club can bestow on an individual.
