Swim for Polio 

Rotary International is closing in on the goal of eliminating Polio world wide, however the task is not yet complete.

On August 19th 2018, the Rotary Club of Truro will hold its 5th annual swim across Shortts Lake.  Members and friends will gather pledges to support those who swim.  Donations go to the Rotary Foundation and, after being matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are used in continuing the battle to eliminate this dreaded disease. 

We also need swimmers.  All welcome!  Contact Laurie (Laurie.Sandeson@novascotia.ca) or Lydia (lsorflaten@hotmail.com) for details.

Special Note to Rotarians before making a donation:  Be sure to hit the "Sign In/Register" button at the top of the donation page and login to "My Rotary" (do NOT use Facebook or Google to login) before making a contribution.  This ensures that your donation will count toward your Paul Harris recognition.  IPad users should use "Desktop View" for best viewing.

Non-Rotarians may just hit the "Contribute Now" button and proceed with a donation through PayPal or with a credit card. 

Please support our swimmers by making a donation now!  Click the "Donate Now" button below to go to the donation page. 

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.  In addition to the normal three parts, we will also be offering two special half day graduate courses. One on Membership and Membership Issues and the second on Motivating volunteers.These two courses come as a package.  
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.
Several Rotarians took part in the 2018 Pride Parade in Truro on July 14th.  The group road on the colourful DalAC float showing off the Rotary Banner.    Show in the photo are  (l-R) Candy, Rotarian Alana, Kyle and Rotarian Jim. It was a beautiful day and it looks like everyone had a great time.
As a result of a visit to Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia by our travelling Rotarian Dr. Kevin Quinlan, the Rotary Club of Truro has supported a project that a Rotary club there has started.
The project is to set up schools in the Ger (traditional tents) community for young children who have to stay home to tend the fires in the tents while their families are away. 
The president of the club sent a nice note to recognize the contribution.
The Club was pleased today to confirm the election at the Semi-Annual meeting held on June 25 of the Club's principal Executive Officers for the 2018-19 Rotary Year. Ryan Beazley becomes President, Lech Krzywonos moves up to VP and Jane Gourley-Davis joins the team as Secretary.  Congratulations to all 
The list of all Club Directors and Chairs appears on the Club's website under the Club Organization  Menu Link.
Jim Retson from the Rotary Club of Kenora joined us for our June 18th meeting. He shared with us that his club has about 70 members, 35% - 40% of which are women. He went on to share that his club's last three presidents were also female.
The Rotary Club of Kenora contributes $10,000 annually to Shelterbox https://www.shelterboxcanada.org/ as well as $10,000 annually towards building new schools in Guatemala.
The Rotary Club of Kenora is hopeful to have a First Nations Rotary Club North of Kenora in the coming months.
Alana and Jim exchanged club banners. 
It is always interesting to have visiting Rotarians. It gives us the opportunity to hear first hand what other clubs are doing. Thanks for joining us Jim!

We are pleased to welcome Al Cooze as the Club's newest Rotarian. Al was recruited by Ken MacLean, who had a hunch in church one Sunday, turned around and saw Al and simply asked, "would you like to join Rotary", to which Al simply replied, "yes".

Al recently moved to Truro from NFLD, with his wife. He enjoys travel, golf, and music. We've been told he'll play any brass instrument he can get his hands on! We are hoping Al will play some Christmas Carols on the piano at our Christmas Party. 

Al has already helped with service work.  He has been active with other service groups such as Kinsman and the Alzheimer's Society. Before he retired, he was the General Manager for Zellars.

Al is excited to be a part of our Club and get involved in the community and we are excited to have him.
