Christmas came early as Santa visited the van Tol family and brought gifts, as part of the annual Rotary Easter Seals Children's Christmas Party, which was held on Sunday, December 13.  Due to Covid restrictions, Santa personally delivered gifts to the homes of children who benefit from Easter Seals.  Here Santa, Rotarian and organizer of the party Rick Storey, and President Wayne Harding, meet with Hannah van Tol who is surrounded by her family, brothers Nathan and Luke, and parents Jason and Christine.   
 
 
Saturday, October 24, 2020 was World Polio Day and our Club celebrated by holding a Rotary Walk on the Greenway trail.  Pictured at the top are members of our Club preparing for the walk in front of the new shade shelter which our Club constructed beside the trail. At bottom is a photo of students of the Children's Montessori and Preparatory School displaying the posters that they made, with Rotarian Rick Storey in the middle.  It was a beautiful fall day for the walk and a chance for Rotary members and guests to socialize after many months of separation and Zoom meetings. 
 
Despite the pandemic Rotarians can still find ways to have fun and one way is to have a picnic.  Replete with masks, pizza, and homemade snacks a large number of Club members and family came together at Langley Park on August 17, 2020 and observed all of the rules.  
Work proceeded on the first of our three Rotary Centennial Projects, The Shade Shelter in Rotary Park.  The work crew consisted of President Wayne Harding, Kevin Duguay, Ken Tremblay, Joe Kapron, and Rick Storey,  all under the direction of Project Leader Ken Seim.  Want to volunteer?   Reach out to Ken Seim for a work schedule.  
 
Since our regular lunch meetings have been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Club decided to ask members to donate their money saved by not paying for lunches to Kawartha Food Share.  Rotarian Alan Ingram (R) presents a cheque for $5,785 to Ashlee Aitken and Jude Jesso of Kawartha Food Share from the Rotary Club of Peterborough. The full story can be read online at The Peterborough Examiner.
 
 
 
During this time of the Covid-19 pandemic our Club is continuing its work of serving the community.  Pictured are Club members Marie Press (L) and Sue Sharp delivering the first batch of 295 face masks to Peterborough Regional Health Centre.  The colourful masks were hand-made by dozens of Club volunteers cutting, sewing and driving and will be distributed free to visitors, staff, and patients at PRHC to help fend off infection with the life-threatening virus that is sweeping across the world.
