Breadfruit trees is one of the highest yielding food plants with a single tree producing up to 200 or more grapefruit-sized fruit and is a staple food in many tropical regions.
 
This is a wonderful project as these trees will improve the environment while providing food for a local population in a very poor country.

The speaker at our meeting on February 2nd was Mike Hahn who is very active with the Migrant Farm Workers Project which is operated out of St Albion Church in Beamsville.  The Migrant Farm workers is primarily directed at the 600 Spanish migrant workers that work on the surrounding farms and greenhouses but migrant workers from other countries are also assisted. The initial program focus was providing donated bikes to the workers so that they have a means of transportation. The bikes are refurbished before being provided ,together with helmets, bike lights and reflective vests, to the workers.  The program now offers suitable clothing to new arrivals, a volunteer driver pool, ESL training and other programs. Church Services are provided in Spanish and community Sunday night meals are provided together with transportation in order to address issues related to a feeling of isolation. The program receives considerable support from various local Partners and Sponsors.  The local farms and greenhouses are an important driver of the local economy and the positive impact that these workers contribute goes largely unnoticed.
In addition to being a passionate supporter of the Migrant Farmworkers Project Mike is a Rotarian . He was a member of this club for many years and is now a member of the Rotary club of Lincoln since relocating to Beamsville. 
Pictured above is a group of volunteers unloading donated bikes for refurbishing.

Since 1985, Rotary has contributed nearly $1.2 billion and countless volunteer hours to the protection of more than two billion children in 122 countries.    The disease remains endemic in three countries -- Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan -- although other countries remain at risk for imported cases.
 
A highly infectious disease, polio causes paralysis and is sometimes fatal.  As there is no cure, the best protection is prevention. For as little as US 60 cents worth of vaccine, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life.  After an international investment of more than US$9 billion, and the successful engagement of over 200 countries and 20 million volunteers, polio could be the first human disease of the 21st century to be eradicated.
 
Polio crippled tens of thousands of Canadians until the Salk vaccine was introduced in 1955. Last known cases of Polio in Canada occurred in 1959.
 
Pictured here is our President presenting a cheque for $1,000 on behalf of the Club to Karen Oaks of Rotary Polio Plus at the Rotary District Conference on October 24,2016. Rotary donations for Polio eradication are matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

THE TEAMS ARE BACK FROM A FUNFILLED ADVENTURE TO MADISON WISCONSIN TO CURL AND SHARE THE FELLOWSHIP OF ROTARIANS FROM BOTH NATIONS.
 
The picture is a bit blurry but know it was taken by someone else other than our group but is recorded as another special moment in our clubs history.
The winning club was a Peterborough team that won on the last rock of the last end. Certainly a memorable moment and a ticket to Aberdeen Scotland this March to partake of the Rotary World Championship.
We have a team already enrolled and excited about the upcoming competition.

Another successfull year and accolades to all the volunteers for their support and dedication to making the fundraiser a success.
We had excellent exposure from many varied sources but the real thank you goes to Harry DeVries at Coles for his support to the Rotary Club, and his benevolence to both worthy causes
The support from the community once more demonstrates what a caring environment we have as our home.
