Three members of the Rotary Club of Kumbo visited the site of the repair of the school in Befang to inspect progress on this part of  GG1530060.
Ibrahim Yaouba, President of the Rotary Club of Kumbo (host club),  submitted the report below to the Rotary Club of Truro (International Club).
Pictures taken on site Sept 13th, 2017 were taken by Mme Oussematou, Director of Integrated Development Foundation. 
Kirk will be taking Rotarian head and shoulder photos at the October 2nd club meeting.  These photos will be used for the Community Yearbook.
Newer member who have not had your picture taken or others who want to change the one they have, please make sure to come to the meeting on the Oct 2nd. 
The 10 member Rotary Friendship Exchange team from Estonia and Finland  spent a couple of hours in Truro on Sunday, September 17th at the fall farm Social hosted by the Rotary Club of Truro.  About  50 Rotarians, friends and family enjoyed the event, held at the home of Laurie and Mike Sandeson, there was local food and fun for all.  A copy of the team information is available as a download.
The team exchanged Club banners with President Alana and gave a brief description of Rotary in their home countries.  They also had the opportunity to learn a bit about our area while enjoying their meal before moving on to their next stop. 
It was a great day for everyone.  Special thanks to Laurie and Mike for hosting and to Judy Nicholson for her hard work and organizational skills.
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a series of one-day courses offered to help refine a Rotarian's leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge about Rotary.  Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared toward busy business, professional and community leaders who want to become more knowledgeable Rotarians and more effective leaders in their vocation and their Rotary club.  It is open to all Rotarians but is especially beneficial for newer Rotarians.
You can find out more about RLI and the various sessions by checking out our on-line resources.  Experienced Rotarians will be the leaders of the sessions and you will meet other Rotarian from clubs all over the Atlantic region.  
The fall session of the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) will be held Oct 28, 2017 in Truro at the Truro Campus of the NSCC, 36 Arthur St.   We are planning to offer all Parts of the training if enough Rotarians from  District 7810 and 7802 register   On-line registration is available by clicking this link.  Don't delay as space is limited for each Part.
Our club will us the regular October Rotary Hours session to host a reception at the Best Western Truro - Glengarry on October 27th starting at 7:00 pm. It is be for all Rotarians  who are in Truro for the RLI event on the 28th.   
Participating in RLI has proven to be the defining moment for many Rotarians. We hope as many  Truro Rotarians as possible will attend both the Friday Night reception and the RLI itself on Saturday.
The Rotary Club of Truro holds a Rotary After Hours meeting once a month to give Rotarians and others a chance to get together in a none formal setting, have some fun and talk about Rotary.  On August 24th we met at the Oasis Bar and Pool area of the  Best Western Truro - Glengarry. Many (most) of us have never been to this space at the Glengarry despite having been at the hotel many many times over the years.  Newly renovated, it a great place to meet, especially on such a beautiful summer evening.
There will be a break in the Rotary After Hours meeting during September given the other events already scheduled but will return October 27th when the club will be combining the meeting with a hosted reception for Rotarians in Truro for the Fall Rotary Leadership Session at the NSCC on October 28th.
We hope to see you at the next event and if you have an idea for an After Hours meeting in the future let us know.  
The Club held it's annual summer social at the Shortt's lake home of Richard and Maralyn Bowness. on August 13th. The weather cooperated to make it another great event and there was enough food and drink for many more.  Thanks to Judy Nicholson chair of the committee, Ed for Bar tending (kind of) and Richard and Maralyn for hosting us.
A great time was had by all.
