On January 31st, ten members of the Rotary Club paid a visit to the Nook and Cranny Brew Pub and the Salty Dog Brewing company on Prince Street and heard all about the evolution of the micro brewing business from business owner Derek Forsyth.  After hearing about the various challenges of the business, the group got to sample some of the great products and a some stayed to try out some items off the menu as well.  It was an informative and fun event.  Watch for the next one.
The spring Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) session is being held in Dieppe NB on Saturday April 6, 2019 at the CCNB Campus,  505 Rue du College  located off Champlain St in Dieppe, NB. The sign in desk opens at 8:15 am and the sessions will run from 9:00 am to about 4:00 pm. 
 
Having Rotarians attend an RLI session has proven to be a major benefit for both the member and their clubs.  The basic RLI program consists of series of three one day Parts. The material in each part is organized to gradually increase the participants' Rotary knowledge and leadership skill and are taken sequentially over a period of time. An overview of the RLI program  and the three parts can be found on the RLI page of the Website.
 
Depending on there being enough people who register in advance, all three Parts of the program will be offered.  If there are not enough registered for any of the Parts before the cutoff date of March 26th, that Part will be cancelled. 
 
The 2019 edition of the Rotary Club of Truro's Community Yearbook has been distributed by the Truro News in the flyers package.
 
This is the 16th edition of the Community Yearbook that the Club has produced as a fundraising effort.  No one is more pleased to have the Yearbook in peoples hands than Yearbook committee chair Lech Krzywonos.

The Rotary Club of Truro is looking for young people in Colchester County to take part in the Adventure in Citizen Program.
 
The Adventure in Citizenship program brings together a select group of 200 students from across Canada to learn about Canadian democratic institutions through meetings with political leaders, senior officials and each other. The Rotary Club of Truro will participate in the program again this year as we have since it started in 1951. We encourage 16 -18 year old high school students in Colchester County to apply. The Rotary Club will pay for the selected candidate to fly to Ottawa and attend the program which runs from April 28 to May 01, 2019.
 
Our application process calls for a short essay (approx. 250 words) or a 30-90 second creative video on “What does being a Canadian citizen mean to you?“ The deadline for application to the Rotary Club of Truro is February 15th. Send completed essays or videos to kenmacdo@gmail.com by midnight February 15, 2019.
 
The second stage of the process is a short interview by several Rotary members on February 22, 2019. Please refer as many young people that you know (or their parents) to the program as possible.
 
Check out the details on the Adventure in Citizenship program at https://rotaryottawa.com/page/welcome-to-the-rotary-adventure-in-citizenship-program.  There is  also a great video  on the site to watch. https://youtu.be/XfmCBYSmOHs
 
This is just one of many Christmas Index Stories.  The children of TJHS had a great night singing carols and collecting money for the Christmas index. It was a lot of fun the kids set up right next to Santa and it made the waiting in line to see Santa extra special this year. They collected $245 in total.
The Club received a nice Christmas Greeting and report from the Rotary Club of Ulaanbaatar Peace Avenue in Mongolia.  The report referred to the kindergarten project the club had supported.
