There was a great turnout to the May edition of Rotary After Hours on Thrusday May 25th  when Truro Rotarians celebrated the 100th Birthday of the Rotary Foundation.  A quick game of Rotary Foundation Trivia was played followed by a special birthday cake which was enjoyed by all.   We even sang (some would call it singing) Happy Birthday to the Foundation.
 
Join us for RAH next month.  It's the last Thrusday of June at 5:15 pm.
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Truro hosted a day long Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) session for high school students on May 5, 2017 at the Truro Campus of NSCC.  
 
As part of the leadership training the students divided into groups and created short videos about issues faced by young people.  The seven videos have been posted to the Club's YouTube site.
 
Please have a look.
 
The Annual Adopt a Highway clean-up was held Saturday May 27th. The group of 11 hardy Rotarians met at the Canadian Tire parking lot at 9 am and then moved over to the Hwy 102 / Robie Street interchange to collect all the paper and plastic they could.  The NS Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal provided the vests and bags and picked up the bags from the roadside.  
 
While it was cloudy, overcast and on the cool side, the Rotarians collected approximately 25 bags of trash. There was consensus that this was down from previous years which is a good thing.  In addition to the beer cans, coffee containers and car parts the group usually picks up, the most interesting find was the pregnancy test kit and the empty birth control container found a short distance from one another. 
 
Thanks to everyone for this community service.

There is still time to make a donation and help celebrate 100 years of Rotary Doing Good in the World. 
The Rotary Club of Truro hosted a very successful Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) Event in Truro on Friday 5th 2017.  
 
This year’s RYLA event had 37 students in attendance with students attending from each of the 5 large regional high schools. This year we also had 2 students attending from the Halifax district to participate in the day and will be taking feedback to the Rotary clubs there.
 
Winners of the two $500 bursaries were Josey Peters, a 17 year old student from CEC , as well as Lindsey Burgess, also a 17 year old student from CEC. Out of the 37 students, 17 were prepared for their interview with a personal portfolio. A special thanks to Rotarians Jim Gould and Ken MacDonald who were tasked with the job of reviewing all the portfolios and holding the interviews.
 
The day consisted of many activities for the students to participate in as well as a chance to each group to produce a 5 minute video on the challenges and advice they would provide to students entering high school. 
 
This year we provided the students with a binder that they could use as a personal portfolio in the future.
