BEL Rotary continues to meet virtually on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month. Please join us!! Contact President Nicole or any of our members for information.
Future Rotarians Emmalena (5) and Rhyland (3) walked to raise awareness of the efforts of Rotary and its partners as they celebrated World Polio Day, October 24th.  BEL Rotary has been a proud supporter of polio eradication for more than 3 decades.  The club with the support of our amazing community has raised tens of thousands of dollars.  We are so close!  For more information contact Susan Davidson or any BEL Rotarian.
 
For many in our community a holiday such as Thanksgiving puts additional strain on an already tight budget. Thanks to the sponsorship of Scott Concrete Products and support of John’s Valumart, Lakefield Foodland and Ennismore Foodland many local families enjoyed a turkey dinner with all the trimmings! Rotarians purchased, packaged and delivered food baskets to some of our community who needed it most. “We have so much to be thankful for – sharing is the best way to truly appreciate it”, said Rotarian Mary Lou Tryan.
 
One of the true honours of being a Rotarian is to induct new members into Rotary.  We had the honour of inducting Shannon Sygusch into their Rotary family. Visiting District Governor Lynne Chant, spoke about the power of Rotary and how Rotary connections enrich our lives. Rotary connects 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries and geographical areas to take action and create lasting change across the globe and in local communities. Their work impacts lives in many ways from helping families in need in local communities to working globally toward a polio- free world.
 
At the July 13 th meeting of the Rotary Club Bridgenorth Ennismore Lakefield (BEL), now Past President Tony Davidson officially passed the “gavel” to incoming President Nicole Mascherin, to begin the 2020-2021 Rotary year. Due to Covid 19, the meeting was virtual and the official passing of the gavel by video, pre – recorded respecting physical distancing.

It was a time of celebration as the club reviewed the successes of the 2019 - 2020 Rotary year and outlined goals for the coming year. “Despite the changes in how we did business this year”, said Past
President Tony, “the club continued to provide service to the community. This is thanks to the dedication and commitment of every member.”
 
The COVID-19 situation in Canada is evolving on a daily even hourly basis. We are being asked to take immediate and strong action to help stop the spread of this virus. It is important for all of us to practice the necessary precautions: hand washing, social distancing and self-isolation when necessary. To this end, all face to face meetings and social events of the BEL Rotary Club are cancelled or postponed until further notice.  However, we are meeting online and continuing to serve our community.  The health and safety of our Rotary family and friends and neighbours is of paramount importance. We are still here and want to serve our community. Please reach out to one of our club members if we can be of any support.

Take care and be safe,
Your Friends at BEL Rotary
“Heroes don’t always wear capes”. How true these words are. For the past four months our local heroes have been the men and women working on the front line to keep our community going. This of
course includes our health professionals and support workers who have worked tirelessly to provide care to the most vulnerable members of our community.

The BEL Rotary Club has been working to respond to the needs in our community and also recognize those who have gone above and beyond during this difficult time.
