Dear Canadian Rotarians:

I am pleased to advise that C$250,000,000 that the previous Canadian Government had committed in 2013 for Polio Eradication world-wide, of which C$12,000,000 was designated to match contributions made through or by Canadian Rotary Clubs, has been fully paid. 

March 7, 2017 - Dave Carson, club member and Treasurer of Environment Hamilton, presented the club with an update on the Ontario Green Gas Progress Report. Dave's talk built off of a topic that he wrote about recently for the Hamilton Spectator Article. Dave spoke to the progress that has been made so far against the province's plan to reduce Green House Gases by 30% by the end of 2030. Dave noted that this is a low target and even still we are producing 815mega tones of Carbon Dioxide which puts us 55% behind the prediction.
On Tuesday, February 28th our guest speaker was Dr. Sid Stacey. Sid is the current Chair of the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton (SPCCH) and facilitated the launch of the city-wide Hamilton Suicide Prevention Strategy in 2010 and also Co-Chairs the LHIN 4 Regional Suicide Prevention Committee. He told us the very tragic story of his own daughter’s suicide which started him advocating for suicide awareness.
 
On Monday, February 20th the Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club hosted its annual Winter Carnival at the Dundas Driving Park. This awesome event includes horse and buggy rides, cider, free skate rentals, music and more! This year we were blessed to have beautiful weather, warm enough to skate without a toque but cold enough that the ice held together. 
 
 
On Tuesday, February 21 our speaker was the Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club's own Hugh Boyd who gave his classification talk.
 
Hugh’s mother was a nurse and his father a rural planner and was a Rotarian for a short time. He is the Medical Director at St. Joseph’s Villa.Growing up Hugh played most sports but his real love was music. In particular, he loved to play the fiddle.
