Also much credit to Bob Beath and his team who culled and repacked all the books for the load. In all a very efficient and successful loading. Thank you for making it happen! Brian Hall ​Rotary Club of Grand Bend.

--HAITIAN EARTHQUAKE DISPATCH 3 – SEPTEMBER 5, 2021--
HRDF’S “THREE H’S” IN COASTAL AQUIN, HAITIHUNGER – HEALTH – HOUSING
Since the mid-August earthquake and tropical storm, the Haitian Resource Development Foundation has framed its emergency response mission according to a “Three H” formula – broadly defined as hunger, health and housing. This gives logic to the “demand side” of the disaster, namely how the victims identify their priority needs, and also the “supply side” of what Aquin has to offer, namely HRDF’s coordinated appeals, outreach, organization and delivery of aid. For donations: hrdf.org

Many “Thanks” to Jim Swan for uploading these videos.  

To celebrate 100 years of service to the London community, Rotary clubs in London are donating $100,000 to install a 14-foot illuminated clock in the tower at Covent Garden Market.  

Highly visible to patrons of Budweiser Gardens and the Market, the clock will enhance the area known as Rotary Square that is home to the Rotary Skating Rink and numerous community events.

Construction will begin in late fall with the official grand opening in March 2015. The same clock builder installed the clock in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa – The Verdin Company.  

The clock will be a spectacular enhancement to the existing Market structure and beautify the area while raising the profile of Rotary Square.
