New Club banners are available for members to take with them when they travel and visit other clubs.  Trading of club banners has a long history of Rotary and it is nice way to highlight the international nature of our organization. 
If you are travelling, take the opportunity to attend another club's meeting and trade a banner.   
Members and Friends of the Rotary Club of Truro visited the Raging Crow Distillery for their November Vocational Visit.  Owners Jill Linquist and former Rotarian Al Begin were great hosts outlining for the group the details of the distillery business and offering samples of their unique products. Many took bottles of their favourites home with them!   Thanks to Jill and Al for a great visit.

The Rotary Club of Truro is proud to support a new Rotaract Club at Dalhousie University, Agricultural Campus. The Rotaract club was launched this September and includes over 21 members. Members  participated in Truro Rotary Club’s Bollywood event, and the president performed a Bollywood dance.

The members have been volunteering weekly at the local food bank, filling bags and serving clients.

On Oct 24th, World Polio Day, the club launched the Purple Pinkie campaign, selling cupcakes and stamping pinkies on a poster that will be displayed on campus. The campaign will continue to run at the campus pub, serving purple drinks fundraising for polio. Club members will be participating in a leadership conference hosted by Dalhousie University.

The Rotaract Club is planning on supporting the Christmas Index Program operated through Truro Rotary Club.

Great Work Rotactors!

Four Rotarians from The Rotary Club of Truro attended the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) sessions held at the NSCC on Saturday Oct 26th.  New club member Lily Scales took Part 1 while Darlene Stevenson and Anna Rutherford took Part 2.  Past president Ryan Beazley graduated from the program having completed Part 3.  
In addition to taking courses, three Truro Rotarians played an active role in making the day a success.  Laurie Sandeson facilitated her first sessions during the day.  Barbara Goit helped Jim with registration as well a mentored other new facilitators.  
A total of 58 Rotarians from around the region took part in the program.  All learned more about Rotary from each other.  Congratulations on a successful session.
The next RLI session is being held on April 4, 2020 in Dieppe NB.  Hopefully a number of Rotarians from Truro will attend that session.  Registration  and program details can be found at
The Rotary Club of Truro is proud to support the capital campaign for the expansion and redevelopment of facilities at the Colchester Colchester Community Workshops with a donation of $100,000. Rotarians attended the launch party for the campaign at the Workshops.
Congratulations to all.
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.
