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.
 
One of the goals of Rotary is to make our world a better, “cleaner” place. “The environment is a priority and while we work around the world bringing clean water and sanitation to developing countries, we also work locally to “clean-up” our community” said BEL Rotary President Tony Davidson.
 
BEL Rotary purchased 25 dinners from Swiss Chalet and had them delivered to the Youth Emergency Shelter. It is a great way to show the staff how much they are appreciated and the youth how much they are valued. We all need to come together during this tough time!
 

Rotarians may not be meeting in person, but the work and impact of Rotary continues during this unprecedented time.  At the BEL Rotary meeting on Monday night Past District Governor Brian Menton, updated the club on the tremendous strides rotary has made in polio eradication and how the infrastructures and resources to fight polio are aiding developing countries in responding to Covid – 19.

Youth exchange brings the world together one student at a time.  The BEL Rotary Club was please to welcome return student Danika Ash to their virtual meeting.  We also had to say farewell to our inbound student Rocia - who has become an important part of our Rotary family.
 
We are all working together to do our part to slow the spread of Covid -19 and make our community safe once again. To our front line workers, our medical teams and our local businesses a huge thank
you! Although we are not meeting face to face members of the BEL Club are doing what they can to support the community and help in this unprecedented time.

In partnership with the Lovesick Lake Women’s Association, President Elect Nicole Mascherin is coordinating the making of masks to be distributed to front line workers and key community members.
The club has also contributed to the production of hand sanitizer to be distributed to health care professionals and at risk community members, and will help with the distribution of this product.

“We know we need to pull together during this difficult time but we also need to ensure that our members, our families and our friends and neighbours are safe”, said President Tony. “Members of the
club are here to help where possible and where safe. If you need help with the delivery of medication or groceries to your home, please contact a club member and we will assist you.”

As we continue in this “new norm”, BEL Rotarians will continue to assess the situation to determine what they can do to help. We are proud to be part of such a generous, civic minded community and will
continue to do our part through these unprecedented times. For contact information and more information about BEL Rotary please visit our website www.belrotray.com.
