Stories
Recently the future usefullness of Business Clubs and Community Service Clubs has been the discussion of a few of the meetings I have attended.  There seems to be a growing gap between the current members of these clubs and the potential new members they would like to bring into the group.  Much talk about the age and the attitude of what should be a potential new member has been harked on as the cause of the decrease in club involvement.  The atmosphere and changing work environment and business structure is also a big hurdle to get over.  Outside influences from family and a non business oriented social interaction also comes into play for the new work force.  Social media and the internet offering quick answers and solutions without time commitment is often the choice today.

LOIS AND HER HORSE
The horse may be retiring but her owner isn’t. Hamilton East-Wentworth Rotary club member Lois Allison has informed us that her 11 year old trotting mare has run her last race and will now go on to produce more racers for this popular sport. ‘Brontewine’, who is the last racing progeny of ‘Balanced Image’, a famous Hall of Fame stallion whose offspring has earned over $111 million to date, for their various owners. Lois tells us that as she got older she got faster – the horse I mean – although Lois herself at 90 is no slowpoke.
Lois and her late husband, long time Rotarian Harley purchased their first horse in the late ‘60s and Lois continues to enjoy being very involved in the sport with her son Wayne. Apart from the racing there is showing and very importantly, breeding.
Lois attends the Royal Canadian Winter Fair every year with her show  horses and has hosted her fellow Rotarians there in the horse stall.
Lois you are a credit to us all so keep inspiring us.

The 1857 Hamilton Ontario Revival - What happens when you miss the boat?
Sandy King brought an interesting history lesson to our members about The Second Awaking, a religious event that brought many people from all around the world back to the church.  Sandra explained how her research into The Ontario Revival of 1857 that started Hamilton Ontario may well have been the catalyst for The Second Awaking which has until now been accredited to a church prayer meeting in New York City..
 
Growing up in the Hamilton Area and later studying at Elim Bible Institute in Lima, New York, Sandra developed a passion for Hamilton and for the Christian Ministry that eventually lead her to researching the History and People of Great Revival.  Sandra has a post-graduate education in Public Relations from Niagara College. It was during these studies that she discovered her ability to effectively communicate through writing. Upon graduation she held several free-lance writing jobs, during one for a Christian regional magazine called Beacon. Her editor assigned her to write an article for the 150th Anniversary of the Revival. That was when she began to seriously research what actually happened in Hamilton in 1857 that developed into her book "The 1857 Hamilton Ontario Revival".  Newly discovered writings of Phoebe Palmer about the time spent in Hamilton with her husband Walter, a doctor from New York, shows a truly interesting series of events that predated the Prayer meeting in New York City.  It was also the turning point for the city of Hamilton that had been a serious decline in popularity and swelling poverty.

Guest Speaker Susan Morris from City Kidz spoke at our October 29th Meeting.

They are preparing for the Big Dreams Banquet on November 19th, 2015 celebrating 22 years serving Hamiltons Youth.  They are getting out the Elf hats to reopen Santa's workshop for the Gift of Christmas annual Christmas event to make sure that they get a gift under the tree for over 4500 underprivileged children in the Hamilton area.  This is while they are still running the Saturday Theatre program for 2000 youth every week, visiting families on Wednesdays in th big red buses running a successful weekly youth leadership program for 250 plus 12-16 years old registered future leaders.  As impressive as the stats are, the story of youth member Craig is what drove home the need for www.CityKidz.ca with those in attendance.  Please read the letter from Craig below.
