SCIENCE  FAIR  2017

Peel Region and Canada Wide Science Fairs

 
Peel Region Science Fair 2017 was a successful event  held on April 25 & 26 at UTM (University of Toronto at Mississauga) with the participation of about 120 students and 100 projects.  The participants are students ranging from Grade 7 to Grade 12 enrolled in the Peel region. The projects included navigation for the visually impaired using cellphone and software, smart helmet to detect minor brain damage, harnessing tidal energy for power and water desalination. 

A team of 12 students among the award winners qualified for and  were chosen to represent the Peel region at the Canada Wide Science Fair (CWSF) held at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan during May 14 to 20. There were about 500 students from across Canada who participated in CWSF 2017.

The Peel team had an outstanding success at CWSF with 10 students (out of 12 who participated) winning awards that included 1 Gold, 1 Silver and 5 Bronze. The best project at our Science Fair in Mississauga also won the Gold and a Special award, " Youth Can Innovate " at CWSF. The students developed a navigation system for the visually impaired using software and cellphone.
 
Editor's Note: A big "thank you" to Krish Murti who has guided the Peel Regional Science Fair for many years.  The success of this project, and therefore of the many students who have benefitted from it over the years, is very largely due to Krish's efforts.
The community events which have long been a part of the Mississauga Lakeshore Club's activities, will be continuing in 2017 as part of the newly combined club.  (Of course, events such as Camp Enterprise, which have long been part of the tradition for both clubs, will also be continuing.)  We look forward to the opportunities for all our members to work together on the following:
 
Participation will continue in 2017
 
Participation will continue in 2017
 
After 43 years, a continuance of support will occur for The Compass as food hampers are filled at this event
 
This event will continue in 2017.
 
Again this summer (2017) on Friday evenings in July and August, Movies in the Park will be held in Memorial Park in Port Credit. Movies are family in nature and begin at dusk. While admission is free, donations are welcome to assist in deferring the costs. More pictures are available in the Photo Albums.
 For more information please go to the Movies in the Park website (http://www.rotarymovienights.com/).
 
Support for Armagh House
Armagh house is a "first of its class" Second-stage , or transitional housing, that provides support for women who have left abusive relationships, helping them make plans for independent living.
The Lakeshore Club has been actively supporting Armagh House over the years, whether it is with supplies, room renovations, or other services.  This service will also be continuing.   For more information visit www.armaghhouse.ca.
UPDATE  UPDATE  UPDATE
NOW OPEN!
 
Our Club's 50th. Anniversary project, the basketball court for disadvantaged youth at Colonial Terrace in Erin Mills is essentially complete - it's just missing the planned Rotary plaque!.  In cooperation with the City of Mississauga and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) a court for basketball and other sports was opened with a big bash on Friday, October 7.  
 
This has been far from a smooth process - there have been numerous delays and misunderstandings which delayed the official opening, 
 
Much credit is due to our former president, Rick Blake, who has shepherded this project since it was first proposed, and now sees his efforts coming to fruition.  Thank you, Rick.
 
There was a barbecue (courtesy of Maple Lodge Farms) and other booths to make October 7 a very special day.  Several hundred youth were present at the opening ceremony or checked it out in the first few hours of its being open.  In addition to a great turnout of faces from our Club, local youth leaders, representatives fro MLSE and from the City of Mississauga were all present.
 
There are numerous pictures of the event on our Club's Facebook page.
 

Erindale Secondary School now has an Interact Club, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Mississauga West.

ImageHAVE YOU HEARD the Rotary theme song for 2014-2015?  It's charming, tuneful and professionally  recorded, but (in this version at least), incomprehensible to sesquilingual Canadians like your Webmaster.  

However, here it is to to enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pva2GSKWhHc

And .....   DID YOU KNOW that Rotary has a music video to encourage new members to join?  While perhaps the video alone will not recruit many new members, it can be a useful component of a more comprehensive promotional drive.  Here is the link:  http://vimeo.com/17537785

 

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charity, whose mandate is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.  Many of our members are "Sustaining members" - Rotarians who give at least the equivalent of $100 US per year to the Foundation.  Please consider joining them.  For further information on Foundation in the form of a short video, please click here.
