The Dedication Rock has now been put in place at the Outdoor Gym at Beavermead Park.  The outdoor gym equipment was funded by contributions of $25,000 each from the Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha and the Rotary Club of Peterborough, with $40,000 committed by the City of Peterborough. The engraving on the rock reads "Presented to the residents of Peterborough in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday."
Our Club was very pleased to have a visit by District Governor Sue Davidson.  She gave a very inspiring presentation about the history and significance of our Club at our weekly meeting of September 24.  She also accompanied President Ken Tremblay on a short hike of Langley Rotary Park and assisted in the School Breakfast Program at Prince of Wales Elementary school.

About 45 Rotarians and guests attended a Rotary Club Social at Globus Theatre at the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon.  Attendees enjoyed a wonderful 3-course meal and then viewed Norm Foster's new comedy play, Lunenburg.

Our meekly meeting was the occasion for honouring our Canada Day Essay Contest winners.  Jaime Bondy-Donahue chaired the event for the fourth year.  Students in Grades 4 to 6 were asked to submit essays defining what it means to be a Canadian.  First place went to Jake Smith of Kawaetha Montessori School who was unable to make the meeting.  Pictured left to right are second place winner Amaelia Beaton  from Ecole Monsignor Jamot School, first runner-up Lilly Fenton from St. Catherine’s, third place winner Ryder Adair from the Kawartha Montessori School, and second runner-up Reilly Bates from St. Catherine’s.
At today's meeting we were treated to a presentation by Rotarian Marie Press who gave us an update on the activities of the International Service Committee, including its two trips to Honduras.  After the presentation members were asked to volunteer to assist in the Rotary Helping Women Project which is producing menstrual supplies for Honduran women. Sue Sharp  brought all of the supplies for making the menstrual kits and set us to work with some people tracing patterns on to fabric, two tables of volunteers cutting patterns, and a small group assembling the kits. Sue expressed many thanks for such a positive response to this project "given that it helps women in a personal way that we don't often discuss.  But the problem is real and you helped many women today!
