Recent Breakfast Speakers and Activities
What a pleasure hosting 7090 District Governor Bob Artis and his lovely wife, Corine.  Bob is a member of the Clarence NY Club and Hamilton AM was his 60th club visit of the 70+ clubs in the District.  In this picture, Bob and Corine are being thanked by Club President, Anne Bermingham and Sergeant at Arms, Mark Ewer, for attending and presenting at our morning meeting.  Following the club meeting, Bob met with the Hamilton AM Board of Directors and was able to share some "pearls of wisdom" along with thoughtful recognition for the club leadership.
Our friends at KPMG have been a lifesaver in operating "The Bank" at our annual BBQ Auction. It was always at bottle neck at the end of the evening until Jeff and Rosemary Cabral took charge and seemingly effortlessly managed that busy time.  Hamilton AM presented the two of them with Paul Harris Awards, the most prestigious award offered by Rotary for outstanding "service above self".  Congratulating them are Club President Anne Bermingham and Past-Presidents Tim McClemont, Paul Lakin and Dave Williams.
Living Rock was faced with a funding shortfall this year and Hamilton AM Rotary came up with some much needed financial aid that will be matched by other donors.  Here is Julie Conway from Living Rock receiving the "Big Cheque" from club President, Anne Bermingham.
On October 30, Terry Cooke, CEO of the Hamilton Community Foundation for the last 10 years, gave a fascinating presentation on the history of HCF and an update on some their current programs, that are playing a critical role in promoting local development.  Here he is thanked for his presentation by club member, Mark Ewer.
At the October 16 club meeting, Werner Plessl, Executive Director of the Hamilton Waterfront Trust, showed some amazing renditions of future development on the Harbour.  Here he is thanked for his excellent presentation by club member, Cameron Nolan.
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.
