Please note:  Due to the current global pandemic and in line with Government requirements, the regular in person Monday meetings of the Rotary Club are temporarily suspended. The Club has begun to meet online using the Zoom platform.  As these meetings are password protected please contact Jim Goit (JBGoit@gmail.com) for an invitation. A listing of  speakers will appear on our website in the normal manner.
Some Rotarians (and family members) didn't let social distancing and cold weather prevent them from cleaning up the roadsides in their local communities on Earthday.  Thank you to Laurie, Richard, Audrie-Jo and Jim for making their local neighbourhoods just a little bit better.
 
Truro Rotarian Dr. Garth Coffin has authored a book about his life, education and work history that makes an interesting read.  Entitled "A Boy from Cherry Hill", a reference to where Garth was born and raised on a farm on PEI,  the book has insights into agriculture from the 1950s through to current times as well as into the life of Garth and his family. 
 
Contact the author about getting a copy as Garth says he is responsible for distribution as well. 
 
Congratulations Garth.  Good read.
 
 
 
 
President Lech was pleased to induct Matthew Berrigan as the Rotary Club of Truro's newest member.
 
An Acadia graduate, Matthew is Regional Manager of the Northern Connector Program.  He has experience in facilitation, promotion, program planning, and program implementation and works closely with established business and community leaders to help employment-ready workers build professional networks across the region.
 
Matthew has attended several club meetings and was one of our speakers in December. Alana Hirtle is Matthew's Rotary sponsor.
 
Welcome to Rotary Matthew.
Rotary Club of Truro President, Lech Krzywonos formal inducted Donna and Ralph Hopkins as the Club's newest Rotarians at the Club's Jan 20, 2020 meeting. 
 
Donna and Ralph Hopkins moved to our community only a few months ago but are regular attendees at club meetings and have already volunteered with the Christmas index on a couple of occasions.
 
Ralph and Donna recently retired from the Veterinary Consulting business in BC where they specialized in poultry flock health. 
 
 
Jim Goit is their Rotary Club sponsor and he is shown in the photo with Ralph Hopkins, Donna Hopkins and President Lech. 
 
Congratulations to Ralph and Donna and welcome to Rotary.
Rotarian Terry  Pook came up with the idea for the Rotary Panty project.  The Lotus Centre is a non-profit Woman's Resource organization that provides resources and services for women free of charge.  One of the items they are always in need of is underwear for their clients.  She proposed that Rotarians coming to the December 3rd Christmas party bring a package of underwear to put a box and she would present to the Lotus center before Christmas.  Donations of money were also welcome if you didn't want to visit the lady's section of the local stores.
 
The project was great success with $232 worth of panties and cash collected.  The Club's Community committee matched that with a cheque for another $232 and Terry made the presentation to Sandi at the Lotus Centre on Dec 12th.
 
 
Thank you to all those who donated to this worthy cause.
The Rotary Club held their annual Christmas Party on Dec 2nd following the monthly Director's meeting.  As has become tradition the a singing Christmas Greeting was recorded and posted to the club's YouTube site. This is the 11th edition.  Please  click to check it out the greeting and share.
