Recent Breakfast Speakers and Activities
Kim Short gave an inspiring presentation on the aspirations and successes of the Knot a Breast Dragon Boat Team.  Kim was joined at the club meeting by team coach and task-master, Kathy Levy. In the picture below, Kim is being thanked by club member, Celine Legret.
Up to $30,000 is available for funding in 2019 for Large Projects or Projects for which the RFP is sent out to community groups and on our website.  Requests for multi-year project funding will also be considered. 
 
Up to $10,000 is available for smaller projects that come up throughout the year and are above the small donations $500/project limit and worthy of funding immediately.
Michelle Lee gave an inspiring presentation on her journey battling an eating disorder.  Now she is a passionate advocate encouraging professionals and communities to educate themselves and offer needed support to those dealing with this complex issue.  Here she is thanked by Past-President, Tim McClemont. Also shown is John Charles who introduced Michelle.
 
Anne Bermingham, Hamilton AM Club President had the pleasure of welcoming our newest Rotary International Exchange Student, Anna Lechner, to our club meeting on August 28.  Anna hails from Croatia and will be here for a year, attending a local high school and living with club members and their families.
Annette Paiement, Executive Director and Dan Fournier, Operations Manager presented at our club meeting to talk about the exciting new role being played by the refurbished Westdale Cinema.  You will want to check out their schedule on thewestdalecinema.ca.  Annette and Dan are being thanked in the picture below by club member, Ashi Jain.
BBQ at the Bay was a stunning setting for the club's annual, signature fund-raiser,  Exclusive use of the Waterfront Trust Building (former Sarcoa  Restaurant) and the outdoor patio made for an unparalleled atmosphere for dinner, auctions and socializing.  A great meal by Carmen's Group and open bar complimented the hospitality extended by the Hamilton AM club to it's members, family and friends.  This may have been a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to use this facility while its future is being determined by the City of Hamilton.  Many thanks to the forward thinking folks who planned and approved this wonderful event.

 
Thank you to Paul and Karen Reardon for hosting a club social in their amazing backyard on August 29.  
Lots of tapas and sangria.  More importantly, lots of time to chat and catch up with one another.  Fun to have alumni members present and soon to be new Rotarians present too.  Thank you to John M and David G who help ensure we make time for these socials and also special thanks to David Gruggen for taking some lovely photos of the evening.
Rotary Club of Hamilton AM visits Grace Haven - a Salvation Army project. 

We were treated on August 14 to a lovely breakfast and chance to see our Rotary dollars at work as our club gave a sizeable donation to help them re-furnish the backyard.  The home supports pregnant and young mothers in Hamilton with residential support as well as an opportunity to complete high school and so much more.  The backyard is now a place that the moms attending school and the ones living in care can enjoy with their little ones.  Thank you Major June Newbury and our own Dan Millar for making this special Rotary meeting possible.

            
Club member, Janet McNaught presented Tracey Warren with a certificate in thanking her for being our morning speaker.  Telling Tales is no longer just a one day festival, it is promoting literacy and sponsoring events all year round. 

A new award has been initiated by the club to recognize a new member in their first 3 years of membership who has gone "above and beyond" in contributing to club activities.  This year's award was given to Cheryl Gzik at the club Changeover meeting held on June 25 for her tremendous contributions to the club over the past year.  Cheryl is shown here with here Rotary Exchange daughter Simona Schumacher.  Only with the special hat is Cheryl taller than Simona.  Simona returnted to her family in Switzerland on July 17 and will be fondly remembered by all in the club, especially her host families.
