  • Hadi Mortada, District Governor and guest speaker

  • Carol Gravelle



  • Bernie received an email from the golf pro at the Hunt Club Golf course wondering what our intentions are for our annual golf tournament this year. It may be a tough sell because most people will not be vaccinated until later in the year.
  • In the summer, if the Club is interested, Joan will contact golfers that have golfed at our tournament in the past and see if they would be interested in golfing in a tournament this year, if we are able to host one.
  • Further with regard to fundraising possibilities, Joan through her ex-husband reached out to Joe Magri, Partner at Weathertech Canada to ask if we could get a percentage of the cost from the purchase of their products online. This turned out not to be feasible.  Joe however, has donated product to our golf tournament in the past and has agreed to do so again either for a golf tournament or an on-line auction that we might conduct.
  • Upcoming Meetings:
    - March 24th – Review of our Strategic Plan
    - March 31st – Create an action plan stemming from our strategic plan
    - Joan’s brother-in-law has agreed to speak to our club on the topic of ‘Terrorism at Home’. She will confirm a date and let us know. Joan will also speak with Chris Snyder, a Rotarian who has spearheaded HIP (Helping Indigenous Persons) about the possibility of having him speak at one of our meetings.  His presentation would address the water situation facing many first nation communities.

Happy Bucks

  • Plenty of ‘sunny’ bucks shared today.
Guest Speaker: Hadi Mortada, District Governor
Rotary International has recently added a seventh area of focus – the environment. Rotary clubs are excited about this new focus. Environmental Clean-up Day is scheduled for April 24th but Rotary has made it a week-long event from April 17 – April 24.
It’s an opportunity for our clubs to clean city parks, waterfronts and any other area that needs attention. Take photos and let people know what Rotary is doing in terms of the environment. Use social media to get the word out.
Rotary clubs are now able to apply for grants for environmental issues.
Our own club has done clean-up work in the past in the area around Rotary Home. The board will discuss whether we want to do this again this year and, if so, a possible date for this clean up.
Member and resident photographer Robin Spencer grabbed a screenshot of the many smiling faces of Rotary.

Next meeting: Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
