Our First-ever Tri-Club Axe Throwing Social event was held at Peterborough Axe Club on May 7, 2017. 22 participants from the three area Rotary clubs participated. Many were first-time steel chuckers and a great time was had by all. Even Grumpy wasn't grumpy! Pictured are the enthusiastic axe throwers and the winner of the tournament Brian Menton from the BEL Club, a past District Governor. His last name should be Bunyan!

On Wednesday March 8th, our exchange student, Lais Viana, who is visiting us from Brazil, was interviewed on the the CHEX TV Morning Show by hosts Teresa Kaszuba and Caley Bedore. 
We were pleased at our weekly meeting of March 06, 2017 to present a cheque for $20,000 to Peterborough's Habitat for Humanity Youth Program. The donation is from the proceeds of our 2016 Rotary Dinner and Auction. In five years, our Auction has raised $100,000 for Habitat! Our 2017 Auction raised an additional $20,000. We are the only Rotary club in Canada that partners with and supports the Habitat Youth Program.

The 31st Rotary Carl Oake Swimathon was held on February 17, 2017, and it was another successful fundraiser.  The Swimathon Committee announced $44,000 in donations after expenses and more money is still coming in.  The award for top donor went to Rotarian Peter MacLoghlin who raised $3,150.00. A cheque for $11,037 was presented to Coralie Jacobs, development officer at Easter Seals.  The money is used to send children with physical disabilities to a fully accessible summer camp as well as providing kids with mobility equipment. However, the whole event is dependent on the team of volunteers, pictured above, who put in many hours of dedicated service.

A hardy contingent of Rotarians braved the 34 degree F. water of Chemong Lake on February 05 to raise money for various charities in the 2017 Polar Plunge.   L to R are Assistant Governor Rick Storey, Peterborough Rotary President Bruce Gravel, District Governor Margaret Walton, Kawartha Rotary Club President Kim Winter, and Bridgenorth, Ennismore, and Lakefield (BEL) Rotary Club President Tony Davidson as they take the plunge. Together, they raised over $6,000, and got to enjoy a welcome hot tub after the event. 
Club President Bruce Gravel, Auction Chair, and Amy Simpson, Auction Vice-Chair, at our annual Dinner & Auction, January 21, 2017, at Peterborough Golf & Country Club. Our club's second-largest fundraiser, this year's auction raised over $26,000 (net, after expenses) for our Habitat Youth Program and other club good works. This was Bruce and Amy's 5th Anniversary of running the auction, which has raised $163,003 over the 5 years.
 
The 31st Rotary Carl Oake Swimathon is set to hit the pool on February 17, 2017.  Since 1987 the wider community has joined Carl Oake to make the Rotary Club of Peterborough's swimathon a success for the people of Peterborough. In that time over one million dollars has been raised and, with your help, we have supported a special Easter Seals Ambassador every year for 30 years.  Get involved by sponsoring a team or joining a team.  You can find all of the details at the Swimathon website at https://ptborotaryswimathon.com/
