Our annual Dinner and Theatre Social Evening was held at Globus Theatre at the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon on July 23.  The event was attended by 53 Rotarians and guests from 4 area clubs, an all-time-high. After an excellent dinner, we saw the comedy play "The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing  Derby" by Norm Foster.  This is the 5th year in a row that Frances and Bruce Gravel of our Club have organized this summer social event, and attendance has grown each year.
Our meeting of July 08, was the occasion of a presentation to Homeward Bound and the honouring of members of our Club for their efforts and commitment to the Rotary ideals.  In the top picture Homeward Bound received a cheque for $13,000. from our Club towards its service of  helping inadequately-housed or homeless mother-led families earn college diplomas, start careers and achieve economic self-sufficiency.
