Vaccines Work For All
 
World Immunization Week (April 24-30) brings together a diverse coalition of partners to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year, and it is recognized widely as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. However, there are still nearly 20 million unvaccinated and under-vaccinated children in the world today.
 
Thanks to Bills and Melinda Gates Foundation your contribution to Rotary's Polio Plus Fund will be tripled.
 
 
Covid-19 has upended the financial security of many of our residents, businesses, employees and pensioners.  The Rotary Internationl Foundation allocated USD20,000 to 20 clubs in our district 7090 to help with urgent needs in our communities.  The Rotary Club of Grimsby arranged to have the Rotary Foundation contribute goods with the value of  CAD $1,300 to community GBF services.  These goods will be distributed by the GBF food bank to assist people in need of support.
Covid-19 Disruption
 
For many years the Rotary Club has faithfully completed 2 sections of Main St ( Highway 8) on either side of the Town of Grimsby.  This program has bee suspended by the Region of Niagara in light of the COVID-19 crisis.  The Club will resume the clean-up during the fall of 2020.
 
We would ask the adjoining land owners to assist by picking up lose debris that has accumulated over he winter. 
IMPORTANT NOTICE
 
We are following the advise of Rotary International and our governments and have cancelled our regular bi-weekly dinner meetings.  
 
The club will now hold virtual Rotary Meetings. By holding virtual meetings we will be able to continue our  fellowship, communication and community service. Our regular meeting is being split into 2 sessions with the first session running from 11:55 AM to 12:30PM.  This session will have a speaker and will be open to Rotary, family and Rotarian guests.  The second session will start at 6:20PM with a 6:45 adjournment.

Membership of Grimsby Rotary Club grew by two members at the Feb. 20th meeting. Rotarian Bill Hughes gave an excellent presentation to the inductees, including a history of this local 1976-chartered club and general obligations of new members.  Inductees Mr. Mat Miller is a Secondary School Principal and Mr. Andy Daniels is a Retail Owner.  New Rotarians, Mat, and Andy were warmly welcomed by the club members.  Pictured below (from left to right): Rotarian Kathryn Drury welcomes inductee Mat Miller.  Pictured on left upper (from left to right): Inductee Andy Daniels is welcomed by Rotarian Patrick Brabant.
 
The Rotary Club presented the proceeds of its 20th Annual Fantasy of Trees raffle of $17,000 to eleven Registered Charities at the Grimsby Museum on February 6th. Pictured here is representatives from the charities, major sponsors and from the Club.
 
This event also raised $4,000 from an auction which is used to support the work of Rotary in the Community. 
 
Pictured here are the representatives of the charities and members of Rotary.
 
The 21st event will be held at the Grimsby Museum from November Thursday November 19th to Sunday December 6th, 2020
 
 
 
 
We are celebrating with our ‘red scarf’ event.  Our Fantasy of Trees founder, Bob Gowans, wore a red hat and scarf to every Fantasy of Trees event so we will carry on this tradition. Here is Bob and Lois at last year’s event.  Unfortunately Bob passed away earlier this month.
 
Bob Gowans with the help Lois was the inspiration for the Fantasy of Trees which is now a firmly established community event, open to all free of charge. Proceeds from the raffle and auction are directed to local charities.  This event has been held for 20 straight years.
