Rotarians Audrie-Jo McConkey and Esther Bejarano with their family and three Rotactors were paired with Scouts to plant trees at the old town dump site.  It was a cold and damp day but the group still managed to plant over 1000 trees that will grow into a forest and help in the fight against runaway climate change.
Three members of the Rotary Club of Truro participated in the RLI workshop on the 9th and 10 of April in Halifax.  Jim Goit, Barbara Goit and Laurie Sanderson joined the other Rotarians who facilitate sessions for RLI in updating their facilitation skills and talking about making the Rotary Learning program even better in the future. DG Rob Christie participated the sessions for District 7820 and incoming DG  for District 7810, Noel Eustace is a long time RLI facilitator and supporter.
 
A new RLI website has been launched with a simplified session registration process. Check it out at https://rliatlanticdiv.org
 
The next session of RLI will be in Truro at the NSCC on October 26 2019 and would be a great opportunity to learn more about Rotary and get more out of your membership.   If you have questions contact Jim, Barbara or Laurie.

South Colchester Academy (SCA) Interact’s Coffee House and Art Show held Wed. April 10th was real success drawing a crowd of almost 100 students, teachers, parents and interested people.  Interactors did a great job of organizing:  lining up students and teachers to perform, designing and printing a program, arranging for sound, the building, time and place, advertising, soliciting sponsors (Third Place Transition House, Roop’s Esso, Brookfield Bakery and Hurricane Heidi’s Café and Tim Hortons).     In the photo are  four hard working Interact students Delaney McLellan, Bryn Rankin, Chris Ross, Livi King and Alex Zhou who organized the Coffee House with staff advisor Chris Ross.

 
 
Rotary Week in Truro began with the Club having a Community booth at the Farmers market on Saturday April 6th. In the picture are Club President Ryan and Club Secretary Jane. Also there were Rotarians Kevin, Lloyd and Mike who helped introduce market customers to our organization. Yearbooks were circulated and friendly chatter was well received by all who stopped at our table.
Members of the Rotary Club of Truro were in attendance to watch Tom Chisholm, Deputy Mayor of the Town of Truro and Christine Blair, Mayor of the County of Colchester raise the Rotary Flag at town hall.  The flag was raised to announce the beginning of Rotary week in Truro and was accompanied by Proclamations from Truro and the County of Colchester.
