It was a great day on Sunday March 10th at Ski Wentworth for the Rotary Ski Fun Day. 45 Rotarians, friends and family from Truro, Halifax and Moncton got together for a great time skiing and hiking on the mountain. There was a scavenger hunt (finding the Rotary signs) that was won by Truro Rotarian Adam Harris. The prize is a $150 donation to the Rotary Foundation.
 
Thank you to the wonderful staff at Ski Wentworth and all the Rotarians who volunteered to help with registration and activities. Finally thank you to all those who came out to make it a fun event.
 
Assistant Governor Jim Gould presented Immediate Past President Alana Hirtle with the framed Rotary International Citation for the year 2017-18 at the club's regular meeting on Feb 25th. 
 
Formerly known as the Rotary Presidential Citation, the award is presented to clubs who meet a number of goals and objectives set by Rotary International each year.  The objective of the citation is to encourage clubs to plan, engage in the work of Rotary and excel at being a balanced Rotary Club.  Of the 47 clubs in Rotary District 7820, the Rotary Club of Truro is one of only 12 clubs to receive the Rotary Citation for the 2017-18 Rotary year.  Great work.

Interesting stories and lots of Rotary connections.
On January 31st, ten members of the Rotary Club paid a visit to the Nook and Cranny Brew Pub and the Salty Dog Brewing company on Prince Street and heard all about the evolution of the micro brewing business from business owner Derek Forsyth.  After hearing about the various challenges of the business, the group got to sample some of the great products and a some stayed to try out some items off the menu as well.  It was an informative and fun event.  Watch for the next one.
