Rotary District Governor Reg Madison joined our meeting on September 13, 2017, to give us an update on what is happening at District 7090 this year and to help us present a cheque in the amount of $25,000 to Inasmuch House, one of the local charities that we were able to support this year.  Reg forwarded the following note to President Jane Blums after our meeting which Jane has asked be shared:
 
Dear President Jane and the Rotary club of Hamilton AM,
 
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality at our club visit last week. We enjoyed our visit, getting to know you, your board and your members better. We left the meeting feeling re-energized and ready for our next round of club visits.
 
Jane, you were well prepared for our board meeting with concise yet thorough pre-work. Your board is knowledgeable, professional and committed to Rotary.  There’s great comradery within the club. You community should be proud  of your club. 
 
I was honoured to present the $25,000 cheque to the In As Much House recipients of your Diamonds and Denim event. We enjoyed chatting with Irene and Yolanda about their upcoming auction item – preparing European food in your home. Finally, thank you for your donation to Polio Plus on my behalf. 25 more children will be in safe hands thanks to you. PS - we appreciated the tech support!
 
Our Youth Services survey will follow shortly.
 
Please share our thoughts and appreciation with your members. If there’s anything you need, don’t hesitate to call. Thanks again Jane and continued  success in ‘Making a Difference’ in your year as Club President.
 
Yours in Rotary
 
Reg
District Governor 2017-2018

Our guest speaker at our regular breakfast meeting on August 30, 2017, was Karen Craig from Living Rock Ministries. 

Karen Craig is a Registered Social Worker and Program Director for Living Rock.  Living Rock is a resource centre that engages, encourages and equips youth-at-risk and has been seeing lives change for 30 years.

Last year, Living Rock responded to over 32,000 visits, providing essential supports to one of Hamilton’s most vulnerable populations: youth between the ages of 13-25, who are affected by significant risk factors such as loss of family, poverty, substance misuse and mental health. These youth need support to navigate the social systems to find ways to meet their basic needs of food, education and shelter. The programs and services offered by Living Rock Ministries provide a continuum of care for youth and their children, while offering opportunities for personal development, life-skills and employment training.
