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.

Luke MacDonald is a Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Halifax Harbourside. He donates $5.00 to Rotary Foundation's  End Polio Now campaign each time he wears his Rotary cycling jersey on a ride and he has challenged other Rotarians  to do the same.  
PDG Jim Goit wears his jersey on almost all his rides and has picked up the challenge by doing the same and making a donation to the Rotary Foundation.  At the Rotary Club of Truro's Monday he announced that he has completed 32 rides and there are  two and a half months of biking season left!
 The Jerseys also help promote Rotary in the community.  This is a photo of PDG Jim with Rotarian Ron Zwaagstra on a recent ride around the Aspotogan loop.  
Others can help with the cause by making their own donation to the End Polio Now Campaign.

The Polio Swim Challenge continues in support of Rotary International's Global Polio Eradication Initiative.  Shortts Lake Sunday morning August 7th seven swimmers accompanied by a kayak and two boats made their way across the lake.  Pledges are coming in.  One team has $800 in pledges! Other people are finding unique ways to support the Polio Challenge.   Pictured here, ready for the swim, are Laurie Sandeson, Ted Jordan, Lydia Sorflaten, Les Mosher, Chester MacPhee and Richard Bowness.  We were joined by Jacqueline MacPhee, Trish Toole and Louisa Sorflaten to swim across the lake.
