Rotarian Terry  Pook came up with the idea for the Rotary Panty project.  The Lotus Centre is a non-profit Woman's Resource organization that provides resources and services for women free of charge.  One of the items they are always in need of is underwear for their clients.  She proposed that Rotarians coming to the December 3rd Christmas party bring a package of underwear to put a box and she would present to the Lotus center before Christmas.  Donations of money were also welcome if you didn't want to visit the lady's section of the local stores.
 
The project was great success with $232 worth of panties and cash collected.  The Club's Community committee matched that with a cheque for another $232 and Terry made the presentation to Sandi at the Lotus Centre on Dec 12th.
 
 
Thank you to all those who donated to this worthy cause.
The Rotary Club held their annual Christmas Party on Dec 2nd following the monthly Director's meeting.  As has become tradition the a singing Christmas Greeting was recorded and posted to the club's YouTube site. This is the 11th edition.  Please  click to check it out the greeting and share.
President of the Rotary Club of Truro Lech Krzywonos, was pleased to induct a new member at our Dec 2, 2019 meeting.  Jordan Butler is the Branch Manager, TD Canada Trust  in Truro.  His club sponsor is Rotarian Brian Matthews.
 
Jordan was born in Toronto and moved to Fall River when he was 13. He went to St. Mary's University.  He was offered full-time employment with TD after spending a couple months as a teller and has now been with TD for over 4 years in 4 different branches.
 
Jordan  volunteers with CCW and is a cabinet member for the capital campaign project as lead for the financial institutions sector. He has settled in Truro having bought his first home. His girlfriend Kristen is an RN at the Hospital and they have 1 dog and 2 kittens.
 
Welcome to Rotary  Jordan.
Eight members of the Rotary Club and 4 members of the new Rotaract Club joined our clients and friends of the Colchester Community Workshops to walk in the annual Christmas Parade through downtown Truro.  While we ran out of candy part way along the route, the large crowd was enthusiastic.  It was a great way to kick off the holiday season. 
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.
