About 40 Rotarians and friends met for an evening of fun, food and fellowship at the Rotary Club of Truro's annual Christmas Social on Dec 4th.  It was a great time.  The club members recorded their singing Christmas Greeting (the 10th in this tradition) and then with the musical leadership of Barbie Reynolds, Al Cooze and Laurie Sanderson, sang some more.  We were sounding great.  Check it out on the club YouTube Channel. https://youtu.be/GLalXekVk6o
 
Thank you to everyone for attending and making this a great party.
The Kindergarten school project in one of the Gur districts of Ulaanbaatar that was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ulaanbaatar Peace Avenue and supported the Rotary Club of Truro is up and running.  The children have also had a visit from Santa.  He dresses in blue in Mongolia.  Check out more pictures.
 
Trying to make sure that children are safe and happy, especially at Christmas time, is a universal theme for Rotarians.
 
The Truro Run tribe organizes an Ugly Christmas Sweater Run to raise money for the Christmas Index.  This year Rotarians Audrie-Jo McConkey (and her boys) as well as Matt Redmond ran in the event.  Approximately $2,800 was raised.
 
In the picture flanking Audrie-Jo are Run tribe members Brian Merrill and Christine Bulk.
 
Great work.  Nice socks AJ! 
 
Rotarians helped the Paramedics from EMS fill an ambulance with toys for the Colchester Christmas Index program. This is the 4th year the drive has been held at Walmart and the public is really supportive, filling the van to overflow.
 
The 2018 edition of the Colchester Christmas Index program got into high gear as we got closer to the Holiday season.   
 
Our Christmas Program exists to help families at Christmas time that may be facing financial challenges and stressful situations.  We understand there isn't always extra money for special occasions like Christmas. The Christmas Index is a cooperative effort of groups and individuals in Colchester County dedicated to providing assistance for those in need at Christmas time. The objective is to ensure those needing assistance receive it. The ultimate goal would be to have each family that requires assistance be matched to a group, family or individual.
 
There is a lot of activity going on at the Christmas index Center at 136 Esplanade in Truro.
