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 and encourages 16 -18 year old high school students in Colchester County to apply.  The Club will pay for the selected candidate to fly to Ottawa and attend the program which runs from April 26-April 29,2020.
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.
