Our March 16, our Club welcomed four new members. Art G., Connie S., Betty P., and Cindy D.  We also welcomed two transferring members John C and Sharon C. 
For  a small club such as ours, six new members bring a significant increase in our club membership.  As a result, our club is more able to take on new projects, building our community.

The grand prize winner of our car was Doug Simkins of Owen Sound.  Congratulations to our three winners and many thanks to everyone who supported us this year.

COVID-19 update #1: programming and public access to certain facilities suspended as of March 14

Kawartha Lakes - As concerns about the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continue to grow, health and safety is our number one priority. We are taking proactive steps to prepare for and respond to COVID-19 in our community.

In keeping with the directive from Chief Medical Officer of Health, we are suspending service at all public gathering facilities with occupancy of 250 people or more and facilities that include activities with high risk of exposure, as listed below. We are not accepting future bookings for rental facilities. We strongly discourage public gatherings of large groups of people to avoid the risk of exposure.

Programming and public access to the Fenelon Falls Community Centre facility will be suspended effective March 14, 2020. 

2nd Early Bird draw held at our 23 January meeting.  Prize of $500 was up for grabs. With approximately 44,000 tickets in the drum, the winning ticket was purchased by Rene Cormier of Summerland B.C.
Thanks to a hockey Mum in the Community Centre for pulling our winning ticket.   We have approximately 6,000 tickets left before selling out.
Guests at our Rotary meeting of January 16 were Linda Hibbert and Dana Bachman from Grannies for Grannies. (The Grandmothers Mothers Campaign through the Stephen Lewis Foundation)
The Stephen Lewis Foundation was formed in 2003 then  Grannies for Grannies in 2006 in response to the AIDS epidemic in Africa with grandmothers left to care for their orphaned grandchildren.   Since 2006, more than 36 million dollars has been raised by grandmothers around the world, from Canada, US, Australia and UK.  Money raised is directed towards the provision of food, educational supplies, uniforms and school fees, medical care, HIV counselling and testing, adequate housing and bedding, counselling and support groups, home visits, and much more.
African grandmothers are central to the life of their communities. With almost no support, they have stepped forward to care for millions of children orphaned by AIDS, sometimes as many as ten to fifteen in one household. They display astonishing reserves of love, courage and emotional resilience, even while grieving the loss of their own adult children
The Fenelon Club holds events throughout the year in an effort to raise money which is then given back to the Steven Lewis Foundation to use towards the improvement of women’s lives in sub Saharan Africa.  Money is directed towards community based programs operated by Grannies in Africa. 
With 14 core members in Fenelon Falls, they continue to build relationships with community partners to assist with fundraising.  At present they have two major fundraisers, a musical evening at St. James Anglican Church.  Mark your calendars.  April 4 2020 is the date for this event.  In October they have a Dessert Buffet with speaker.  This past summer, the club held their first Art in The Park exhibit in conjunction with Maryboro Museum staff raising awareness of the Grandmothers Campaign. Garage sales over the year also contribute towards the Grannies for Grannies Program.
