The Rotary Club of Truro is pleased to have inducted a new member at the Club meeting on June 11th.   Terry Pook has been a Rotarian since 2002 and has moved to Truro only a month ago from Ontario.  Her most recent club there was the Rotary Club of Grand Bend. Before she retired, Terry was a Nurse Practitioner Specialist in HIV /AIDs.  She has been on several NIDs in India and Africa.  She is interested in International and local service work.
Terry is married to John, has 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 1 dog.
Rotary has been a big part of Terry's life and she stated how happy she was with the reception she had received since moving to Truro and how she looked forward to being a member of the Rotary Club of Truro.
Members of the Rotary Club of Truro toured the Truro Campus of the NSCC for their May Vocational meeting.  Campus Principal Leck Krzywonos showed the group some of the exciting changes happening on the campus with major physical upgrading to several of the building including the old pool which is being refitted as vocational training center. There are plans in place for pedways to eventually connect all the buildings.  Lech shared the growth plans for campus telling us that the student population was now over 800 and continuing to grow.
Joining Leck on the tour were Tom Savary, President Alana Hirtle, Jim and Barbara Goit.  Following the visit ,the group repaired to Sherlock's at the Best Western where they joined Judy Nicholson for some fun social time.  
Thank you for the tour Lech.  We're very fortunate to have such a great educational facility in our community.
A group of Rotarians and friends volunteered at the Colchester Food Bank on Friday, June 1st.  They included Mengdi (Dalhousie AC), Chester MacPhee, Sruti (Dalhousie AC), Youwei Chen, Judy Nicholson and Mark Mason. Other volunteers were there but missed the photo.
Colchester Food Bank is a not-for-profit agency that receives no government funding for its day-to-day operations, relying on its generous donors and Volunteers to help provide food for those in need.  For Rotarians, this is a great way to serve the community. 
Contact Mark if you are interested in being part of the next group going to volunteer.
Our travelling Rotarian, Dr. Kevin Quinlan is on a CESO assignment in the Philippines and took the opportunity to visit with a couple of nearby Rotary Club. 
The first was the Rotary Club of Tuguegarao Citadel.  He reports that there is a good balance of men and women and that their main activities include helping poor farmers and supplying eyeglasses.  They expressed a need  for an international partner to be able to apply for a Rotary grant so some further discussion will be necessary.  The DGE is a member of this club.  
The Rotary Club of Truro has been awarded the District Governor's Citation for work toward achieving all the requirement of the Rotary Citation by the time of the District Conference. Our club was only one of 10 in the District to receive the award. 
The Rotary Citation was formerly known as the President's Citation and the date for finally completing all the requirement has been moved to the end of the Rotary Year. Achieving the Rotary Citation indicates that the club has worked hard in meeting all it's obligations as a Rotary Club in all Avenues of Service and is a well run and balanced club.  
The award was presented to President Alana by Vice President Ryan Beazley who was at the recent District Conference in St. John's.  Alana said how proud she was of the effort that many have made towards achieving the award.  She also said that while it was a real team effort, the citation would be hanging in her office! smiley
Congratulations to all.
Thanks to those who gave up their Saturday golf game, gardening or just about any other activity on a beautiful morning to tramp up /down the ditches at the Robie Street / Hwy 102 interchange picking up assorted waste which has been launched from the windows and the backs of trucks over the last year.
Included in the pick-up party were; Ken McLean, Rod Jones, Ed MacDonald, Brian Matthews, Chester MacPhee, Ken MacDonald, Tom Savoury and Mike Topley.
Some 34 bags of garbage and a small kitchen stove were collected! All adjourned for a well earned coffee when the work was done.
See you next year, same time, same place.
