PP June Mergl told us the ins and outs of obtaining items for the Rotary TV Auction to be held from Nov. 29 to Dc. 1, 2018.

The suggested minimum price will now be $60, which will raise more money.  Two more clubs will gather more donations. (St. Catharines South and Niagara Rotaract).   Note that multiple donations will not necessarily be featured on different days, but June will try to accommodate.

Last year, our club netted around $13,500 after expenses.   Only 8 telephones will be working during the auction, but the on-line site will attract more bidders.   Rack cards will be available at the Avondale 
Mayors Youth Advisory Council and the Rotary Adventures in Citizenship Program
 
 Today Beth Angle (CITY of NF) with students Daniel Krachuk and Jacob Zhang were here to give us an overview of the structure and activities of the Youth Advisory Council and details on the Adventures in Citizenship program sponsored by Rotary.
 
Daniel described the makeup of the Advisory council; five students come from each of the area high schools, of which one student is chosen from each year, to give some continuity in the council. Students are selected by school staff. The council has three major committees:
1.     Youth Voice.
  1. Giving Back
  2. Just for Fun
 
Each of these committees works on special events to be held during the school year and uses sub-committees to plan them.
 
The NF Wellness Summit (sponsored by the Ontario 150 Foundation) and co-planned with Pathstone, as well as Mental Health Week are a major focus.  The Red Roof Christmas Party (Giving Back) and School-A-Polooza (Just for Fun) are just two other good examples of events.
 
The Rotary Adventures in Citizenship Program was explained to us by Jacob, who participated this past winter in Ottawa. Jacob arrived in Ottawa for a weekend of tours of Parliament (House of Commons and Senate) with adjoining National Library, City hall and the University of Ottawa. Jacob attended a citizenship ceremony and even got to sit in the Commons seat of the PM for few minutes!
 
Jacob met many fellow students from across Canada over the weekend and learned a lot about diversity and the history of various geographical regions. Lastly, Jacob encouraged us all to “always be curious and learning throughout life”, which is excellent advice from anyone.
