Help us eradicate Polio while having a meal with your friends!
 
Join people around the world for the week commencing Saturday, February 23, to cook, eat, and socialize with friends.
Raise money (donations per meal, pass the hat, etc.) to help Rotary end polio. Check out wgmeal.com for ideas, to register, to donate, and report back. Triple your donation by not doing anything - The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will give $2 for every $1 raised.
 
Contact Tom Campbell, your Polio District Chair, at tom@afj.life for more information.
 
Registration is now open for the 2019 District Conference in beautiful Pictou County! In response to feedback from members, we have shortened the length of the entire conference to two days: Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11! Register Now at https://rotary7820.com/page/district-conference .
 
We will get an early start on Friday morning where we encourage all of you to learn more about your roles and responsibilities as Rotarians, as well as an opportunity to hone your personal leadership skills. We are excited to have the involvement of youth from our various programs which include Interact, Rotaract and Youth Exchange, as an active part of our program. Come and see what the future face of Rotary looks like!
 
A small club doing great things! Over the past 10 years, the members of the Rotary Club of Stratford have raised over $75,000 through their annual road race to support the Mikinduri Children of Hope. The club has also initiated their Rotary book sale in which 50% of the profits go to support literacy projects in the community. They are currently in the middle of their newest fund raising project which is to offer free maps of Stratford to every household. The sale of advertising not only pays for the maps but will generate profits for club projects.
 
Community partnerships are an important part of the Rotary Club of Wolfville’s activities. Their contributions to the Sunken Lake Scout Camp have ensured that valuable programs for the youth of the area are undertaken. This year, they have taken the initiative to inspire Rotarians, not only in their club but throughout the District, to donate blood. The club annually sponsors the Rupert McNeil book prize to a deserving student. The club also knows the value of thanking their fellow partners and did just that by recognizing the Eastern Valley Hydro staff of Nova Scotia Power with a Certificate of Appreciation.
 
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of our peace centers. Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Fellowship develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
 
We have the opportunity for two or three $1,000 to $3,000 district grant applications for THIS YEAR. It could be a small project that has to be finished by MAY 31, 2019 (this year) and begun no earlier than July 31, 2018. The club must match the money that they apply for.
Any club that is qualified for 2018-2019 may apply, and Doug Hill corgihill.d@eastlink.ca will help with the paper work and application if you need it. Don’t delay!
Past District Governor David Muise, who passed away in late 2017, was a Rotarian for over 40 years. A lawyer, former member of the provincial legislature and mayor of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM), his life was a true example of service above self. His fellow Rotarians in the CBRM are working to create a lasting legacy in his memory by partnering with the community to provide an important piece of recreational infrastructure in Dave’s home town.
 
The David N. Muise Rotary Clubhouse is currently under construction at Open Hearth Park in Sydney. The building will provide change areas and washrooms for teams using the adjacent football field. The project is being led by volunteers from Football Cape Breton and managed by Nova Scotia Lands, the provincial Crown corporation that owns the Park. The total cost is $100,000.
