The 5th annual Bollywood night held September 21st was another great success.  Hours and Hours of planned paid off with wonderful support from the community.  Some 22 Rotarians took part in the evening many volunteering for tasks such as taking tickets, selling bracelets and managing the silent auction.  Jane did a great job again as co-MC this year.  The food was fabulous and the feeling of the crowd was wonderful.
 
Thank you to everyone for a great event.
Nine rotarians from the Rotary Club of Truro volunteered with the Colchester Community Workshops annual Golf Tournament as on-course help as Hole-In-One spotters, with the marshmallow drive, football toss, cash collection, refreshment cart, sale of contest buttons and cheat sheets.  Rotarians also helped with the distribution of gift bags.
 
An additional nine Rotarians were golfing in the event and helped with fundraising.  Our teams collected a total of approximately $5,600 and the event is estimated to have generated about $28,000.

This was a big turnout to support our sponsorship of this partner event. Thank you  to everyone.

The Rotary Club of Truro held their annual Summer social at the summer home of Richard and Maralyn Bowness on Shortts Lake on Sunday Aug 19th.
 
The weather was pretty much perfect, the food was excellent. A great time for everyone. It was the Richard and Maralyn's anniversary so the club helped them celebrate with a cake.
 
Thank you Richard and Maralyn for hosting and to Judy Nicholson for organizing the event.  Also thank you to all those who participated.  
 
Check out more photos on the club's Facebook page.
 
There were 15 swimmers who crossed the lake on the 5th Annual Rotary Club of Truro Swim for Polio. The water was warm and everyone had a great time.   We were joined by a mot of friends including swimming champ Matthew Hunter.
 
There is still time to make a contribution to help the club make their goal. Donations can be made to any Rotarian or directly on http://ideas.rotary.org/…/69aee430-190f-4c7e-b648-64d5618a9…. We'll be totaling the amount in another week or so.

Janet and Mellow Honek are Rotarians from New Mexico who travel and live in their motor home.  After attending the International Convention in Toronto, they are on a tour of Eastern Canada with an RV caravan.  Mellow is a member of an E-club and Janet is the Travelling Ambassador for the Rotary Club of Las Cruces (Rio Grande).  There was a banner exchange with President Ryan.  Safe Travels.
There will be a great opportunity to learn more about Rotary as well as sharpen you leadership skills at the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) that will be held this fall in Truro.
 
The  session will be held in Truro on October 27th at the NSCC Truro campus starting at 9:00am.    
 
Members are encouraged to register early for the appropriate Part.  You can find out more about the Institute by checking out their website or by asking Jim or Barbara Goit. 
 
The Rotary Club of Truro has one of the highest percentage of members who have taken an RLI course of any club in the region and we're lucky that it it happens regularly right here in town.  Invest in yourself and Rotary be coming out to an RLI session.
