Our speaker on Dec 6th will be Bernie Gilmore, topic Building Schools in Ethiopia. Bernie volunteered with the Kinsmen African Medical Relief during the Ethiopian famine in the late 1980’s and worked subsequently as their Field Director. For a twelve-year period, he led projects in integrated rural development in Africa and in 2001 was awarded the Louis Perinbam Award for Excellence in International Development. Bernie has continued his grassroots work in Africa with an elementary school in Ethiopia, the Panafric International Academy, and with St. Kizita’s Church in rural Uganda. Bernie has documented his work in Africa in his book: Heart of Africa. “Heart of Africa is a wonderful, personal and insightful record of your experience with the London team in Ethiopia, and especially the remarkable adventure, service and work that you carried out in Camp Bete” said David MacDonald Canada's Emergency Coordinator for African famine, and former Ambassador to Ethiopia. His talk today is titled "Heart of Africa - from Emergency Relief to Sustainable Development."
 
 
--CHRISTMAS KETTLES--
Jim advises all shift times at RCL Angelo's on Wonderland North location have been filled--THANK YOU-- Remember proof of vaccination required--
--BUT THE SALVATION ARMY 2021 KETTLE PROGRAMME CONTINUES TO NEED VOLUNTEER SUPPORT AS FOLLOWS--.
Dear Kettles Volunteers, All of this beautiful snow outside is definitely making it feel like Christmas is near! The wintery weather makes us think of comfort, good food and warmth. The hours that you put in volunteering can help people achieve these simple needs in life. For many Canadians the Christmas kettle is their only point of contact with The Salvation Army all year and it is often peoples primary method of giving. The money donated is used to fund community service programs in London and with the rising costs of food, rent and necessities and with the continuing Pandemic, the need is even higher. Unfortunately even with the dedication of so many volunteers this year we are still struggling to fill volunteer spots and most days volunteer shifts are still only 35% to 40% full. The LCBO's start this Friday, December 3rd and there are still lots of opportunities available. Costco South and Costco North start Friday, December 10th and also have lots of volunteer opportunities available. 
Below is a list of some of our best kettles that still have lots of shifts to fill:
  • Walmart - Argyle
  • Loblaws - Richmond and Fanshawe
  • Masonville Mall - Near Elevator
  • White Oaks Mall - Near La Senza and Tim Hortons kettle
  • Metro Byron
  • Costco North
  • Costco South
  • Sobeys - Adelaide and Fanshaw
  • All LCBO's

If you are able to do any volunteer shifts I encourage you to please give Angela a call. You can also sign up online at www.londonchristmaskettles.com   Blessings, Angela, 2021 London Christmas Kettle TEAM, 519-873-2984. londonchristmaskettles@gmail.com

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.
