Another year, another Bollywood Night. This year was another huge success. Amazing food and entertainment enjoyed by all. The night was hosted jointly by the Rotary Club of Truro and the Khanna family and took place at the Holiday Inn.
 
The event seems to be growing each year, which was noted by Sanjay Khanna, Co- MC for the evening and son of Om and Meena Khanna. Event guests now anticipate the incredible traditional Indian cuisine prepared by Chef Raj Gupta.
 
There were ten members of the Rotary Friendship Exchange Team in the Truro area from Sunday Sept 22nd to Tuesday the 24th when they were handed off to Rotarians from PEI. 
 
During those three days Jim Gould and Jim Goit showed them some of the sights of our area including Sugar Moon Farm, The Raging Crow, the Millbrook Cultural & Millbrook Heritage Centre, Balmoral Mill, The Train Station Inn, Tatamagouche Brewing Co, Jost Winery, Grohmann Knives and the Hector Center. We also managed to have a great social on Monday evening attended by 11 club members, family members and our guests.
 
The Rotarian couples were billeted at the homes of Jim & Gloria Gould, Brian and Carol Matthews, Sharon Corcoran and Orland Dickson, Lech and Tari Krzywonos and Jim & Barbara Goit.
 
New friends were made and a lot was learned about each others homes and Rotary around the world. What a great experience.
President Leck inducted Ms. Hattie Dyck as a member of the Rotary Club of Truro at the regular meeting on Sept 23, 2019. 
 
Hattie is a local author and historian who has spoken to the club on her books and visited our meetings several times.  Wayne Gillis is Hattie's Rotary sponsor. 
 
Welcome to Rotary Hattie.
 
Welcome to the newest member of the Rotary Club of Truro.  Lillian Scales was induced at the Club's regular meeting on September 9th.  Lily is Administrative & Fund Development Assistant at the Colchester Historeum and is excited to learn more about Rotary.  She has already registered for the upcoming Rotary Leadership Institute session being held in Truro on October 26th.  
 
Lillian's sponsor is Rotarian Al Cooze.  In the picture Al and Club President Lech present her with the Rotary welcome package and her pin.  
 
Members of the Rotary Club of Truro along with a number of Special Olympics swimmers made their swam across Shortt's Lake in the annual Swim for Polio.  While it will take the club some time to calculate the total money raised, it's safe to say that everyone had a great time and the effort will help in the campaign to finally eliminate polio from the earth.
 
 
A number of Rotarians took part in the Truro Pride Parade on July 13th on the Dalhousie Ag Campus float as well as in other ways.  Here Matt Hunter, Alana Hirtle and Dave Ritcey show off the Rotary Flag.
 
The Rotary Club of Truro is a proud supporter of the >United Way of Colchester County's Back to School Program.  In the photo Club Treasurer Al Cooze is flanked by United Way of Colchester Executive Director, Terry Hearn (L) and  Back to School Program Coordinator, Katie Allen (R)
