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!
