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 as we have since it started in 1951. We encourage 16 -18 year old high school students in Colchester County to apply. The Rotary Club will pay for the selected candidate to fly to Ottawa and attend the program which runs from April 28 to May 01, 2019.
 
Our application process calls for a short essay (approx. 250 words) or a 30-90 second creative video on “What does being a Canadian citizen mean to you?“ The deadline for application to the Rotary Club of Truro is February 15th. Send completed essays or videos to kenmacdo@gmail.com by midnight February 15, 2019.
 
The second stage of the process is a short interview by several Rotary members on February 22, 2019. Please refer as many young people that you know (or their parents) to the program as possible.

This is just one of many Christmas Index Stories.  The children of TJHS had a great night singing carols and collecting money for the Christmas index. It was a lot of fun the kids set up right next to Santa and it made the waiting in line to see Santa extra special this year. They collected $245 in total.
The Club received a nice Christmas Greeting and report from the Rotary Club of Ulaanbaatar Peace Avenue in Mongolia.  The report referred to the kindergarten project the club had supported.  
 
The full text of the note to Kevin Quinlan follows:
The Annual Rotary Family Christmas Brunch held at the Best Western Truro - Glengarry on Dec 15th was a huge success. With 72 adults, 22 kids, (9 under 4) it was the best crowd since the days of Lorne Macdougall!  Rotarians Al played the keyboard with Alana, Laurie and Barbie doing the singing and guitar playing.
 
As always, Santa made his visit and all the good little boys are girls went home happy.
 
Happy Holidays to everyone.
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.
