Thanks to 10 Rotarians plus 10 more friends, family, and Interact Club members from CEC for volunteering their Saturday morning to cleaning up the Robie Street / 102 Interchange and traffic circle. The ditches were slippery and wet but no-one complained as 43 bags of plastic, fast-food wrappers, cups, styrofoam and various other debris were collected.
We're good for another year.

The Rotary Club of Truro offered to match the fundraising efforts of the local interact Club.  In the picture Club lesion Laurie Sandeson presents a $500 cheque to the CEC Interact Club.   Great Work!

An incredibly successful District Conference was held on the weekend of May 12-15.  Approximately 258 Rotarians and friends from all over the District were in attendance and feedback has been that the conference was second to none.  The program was informative and inspirational and the entertainment was "OFF THE HOOK".
Congratulations to the host team and especially to Co-chairs Laurie Sandeson and Brian Matthews who received the District Governor's Citation from DG Jim for Outstanding Service to the District.

The Rotary Club of Truro welcomed representatives of the IWK who wanted to thank the club in person for a $50,000 donation for the new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. This donation, part of the Bethel Trust proceeds, will help the new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit to be among the best in the world. In the picture above Club President, Kevin Quinlan presents the cheque to Keely Wallace - IWK Foundation Philanthropy Team
Tom Savary is the newest member of the Rotary Club of Truro. Inducted on May 16th at the club's regular meeting Tom was sponsored by Rotarian Jim Gould (Left).  DG Jim Goit helped with the induction ceremony.
Tom moved back to Nova Scotia six years ago to make Truro  his home. He has worked for CIBC for 21 years in various roles in both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, returning to Truro, as Manager of Commercial Banking and Agriculture.   He and is partner Alison have bought a farm house to renovate in Beaver Brook which he says has been both fun and frustrating at times.  
Tom has two grown children, Rachel, who is studying for her doctorate of Animal Science at the University of Saskatchewan, and son Nathan, who is working in Moncton.  Alison has three children, Daniel who is travelling the world, Claire, attending CEC in Truro, and Samuel who attends CCJH. Samuel is a Gymnast with the Truro Spartans.   Welcome Tom and Alison!

Many thanks to Hollis ford for the courtesy cars  loaned to us for The  Rotary  District Convention held in Truro this past weekend!
