President Alana was on hand at the recent DalAC Scholarship Appreciation night and  presented the Rotary Club of Truro's International Student bursary to student Shixin Cai from China. 
 
Congratulations.
Catherine Saunders (wife of Rotarians Dale Saunders) was researching her family history (her Mom was born on Port Hood Island, Inverness County). As she was looking through the ‘Inverness County Bulletin’ in the records at the Nova Scotia Archives in Halifax and happened upon an article about the formation of the Rotary Club of Truro dated February 27th, 1926. 

The article refers to a meeting in Truro "last night" (Feb 26th) although other newspaper articles indicate it was Tuesday night (Feb 23rd) which is the night our history indicates was the actual date.   There were 25 members of the Rotary Club of Halifax and 15 members of the Rotary Club of New Glasgow who met with about 15 men from the Truro area to have dinner and discuss the formation of a Rotary Club in Truro.  The next meeting of the new club was to be held on March 5th. 
 
While official records from RI show the Charter date as April 2nd, 1926, our own club history shows that March 5th is the date the club held its own inaugural meeting and received its charter from Charles Burchell, third Vice President of Rotary International.  The paper work may have taken time to get to RI headquarters.

Thank you to Catherine and Dale for finding this item and sending it along to us.
 
Augusto Enriquez is one of the most well-known and charismatic singers in Cuba. He spoke to the Rotary Club of Truro on Oct 30, 2017 about Los Primos and efforts to secure musical instruments for children in Cuba  As a bonus, he gave an impromptu performance as the end of his presentation, promising to come back to do a full concert for us.
 
Three members of the Rotary Club of Truro joined 26 other Rotarians from all over the region on Saturday, Oct. 28th to sharpen their leadership skills and learn more about Rotary.
 
Lech Krzywonos completed Part 1, Alana Hirtle did Part 2 and Barbara Goit completed the Group Discussion Leader /Facilitator training program which qualifies her to lead future RLI sessions.
 
Reaction to the day was, as always, very positive and people were wondering when the next session will be held so they could register. RLI will next be in Dieppe, NB on April 7, 2018.  Registration will open soon.  Let's get a carload or two and go up for the day.
