Rotary Christmas with Santa this morning. Thank you for all the Rotarians who brought their kids and their grand kids to see Santa and get a little gift. Great turnout!
Thank you to Amy Quintal and Alison Ainsworth from the Cohesive Community Foundation for attending our meeting this morning and sharing their passion for creating a more inclusive environment for families who have kids with special challenges. The programs and support that they provide means the world to a lot of people. You both deserve recognition for your tireless efforts and you truly personify Rotary's moto "Service Above Self". Oh ... and we suspect that you're pretty great moms too! 
We received picture and hand colored note from the students at Forest Green School, thanking us for our donation to the playground project.  We contributed $2000 and it looks like it turned out great!
 
 
 
 
Follow Damon on his one year Rotary exchange in Italy.  He is writing about his adventures on his blog which you can find here:

A big thank you to Barb Furler and Veronica Kong from CAMTA (Canadian Association of Medical Teams Abroad) for coming to talk to our Club this morning. This Edmonton based organization takes a group of volunteer health care professionals to Ecuador to perform life changing medical procedures on the poorest of the poor. They really do change lives! I encourage you to read more about their mission and donate if you can. Each mission costs about a half million dollars and relies, in part, on fundraising and donations. https://camta.com/
A highlight of hosting an exchange student is getting the chance to hear about their home country and to exchange club flags.  At the October 25, 2017 meeting, Isabel Meulenberg from the Netherlands shared her story.  Pictured: Club Flag exchange from Isabel to President Guy Belland and Youth Exchange Director Jason Svenningsen.
 
For 2017, the club and guests enjoyed the beautiful new Heritage Park facility and a new Oktoberfest theme for our fundraising event.  This year we focused on fundraising for the Family Connections Centre and the garden bed project.  We were sold out and attendees enjoyed an excellent meal by Premium Catering and were lured into raising their bids by auctioneer Victor Moroz. As always a very big thank you to our sponsors, donors of live and silent auction items and the volunteers who made the event a success.
