Lindy Finnie ( of the  Scots Society of Colchester and Event coordinator for the Colchester Highland Games made a presentation to the Rotary Club about the games coming to Bible Hill, September 9th, 2017. 
Check out the group's website. ( They are looking for volunteers for many activities and you have a chance to be part of this historic and fun event.

The following are thank you cards and notes received for the support the club has given the Provincial Exhibition and Big Brothers  -Big Sisters.

Just a quick update from our Bollywood Diner and Dance.
The event went well with everyone seeming to enjoy themselves. The balloon sales were a big success with $2,020. raised. With Ted Jordan involved in the sale it is expected that BNS will provide $1,000 in matching funds.
Many thanks to all members who bought tickets, tables and or worked at the event. Alana did another great job at organizing the table assignments, working the door and collecting the silent auction money. Thank you.  Judy and Marilyn did a great job working the door.  Many thanks to Audrie- Jo, Les, Ryan, Ted and Diane Standing for selling balloons. 
Many, many thanks to these volunteers. We presented CCWF and Third Place Transition House with cheques for $3,000 each. After doing the rough financials it appears we may have netted +/- $7,500. and should be advancing another $750. to each group when all numbers are finalized.
Thanks to everyone for a successful event.

Two Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Truro participated in the Blueberry pie eating contest held at the annual Wild Blueberry Harvest Festival.  
First time entrant Alana Hirtle gave it her best and looked spiffy in her Rotary T-shirt, but she has a ways to go to beat veteran pie eater Rotarian Keith Gillis.  This is Keith's 3rd win in this particular event.  
Great effort Alana.  You should get extra points for promoting Rotary.  You'll get him next year.
