Earlier this year we sponsored Liam Labelle to attend the Adventures in History sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cataraqui-Kingston. As Liam recounted for us, it was a fascinating look at the history of Kingston ranging from the home of Canada's first prime minister to the penitentiary and the evolution of the treatment of delinquent juveniles. The theme of this conference was criminal law with emphasis on youth justice and how youth have been treated under various legislation since Confederation. Liam was able to listen to various speakers, including the Honorable Peter Milliken who was the former speaker of the House of Commons. Mr. Milliken spoke to the delegates about the legislative process and the various phases of law making in Canada. Liam toured the Kingston Police Station, the Kingston Penitentiary and concluded this conference by speaking to a group at the Kingston City Hall Council Chambers. Liam thoroughly enjoyed this conference and suggests that it be somewhat longer as he felt constrained by time. Great program and super presentation.

Lily was one of eight students who took part in the Adventures in the Environment program that is organized by our club in cooperation with the St. Lawrence River Institute. She spoke to us about her impressions and experiences as a participant in the Adventures in the Environment. Highlights included a visit to the bat caves; actually seeing the eel ladder from the bottom and saw eels climb the eel ladder at the Power Dam and she actually held an eel. The experience of working with professional researchers at the St. Lawrence River. started with her putting a bucket in the water and checking the contents under a microscope where she tested St. Lawrence River water for E.coli. She remarked that she really enjoyed the 5-day experience. “It was not like Labs in school, it was the real thing!”
Carolyn brought us up to date about the really good work being done in our community by the Tri County Literacy Council, a non-profit community based agency. Volunteers play an important part in program delivery which serves citizens of all ages and all levels of formal education and informal education. Following interviews and assessments, a wide variety of literacy-related individual needs and aspirations are addressed by methods that range from one-on-one tutoring, homework and study skills, English as a second language, to programs that address the ever changing need for skills that enhance one's readiness for the workplace.
We are especially proud to have supported the Tri-County Literacy Council in several ways. Most recently, we helped promote their work by providing the digital sign that lets a large number of their clients know what programs are being offered. As well, pictoral dictionaries have been provided, these are particularly helpful to adults who are learning English as a second language. Visit Tri-County Literacy at

Dictionaries 4 Life is a program that provides grade 3 children with a beautiful illustrated dictionary of their very own. Staff at Bridgewood Elementary School were delighted to see smiles of delight on the children's faces as they examined their new book.
