Our meeting this evening treated us to multiple speakers presenting an array of topics. Our first speaker was Garret Milne. Garret is a masters student in policy at Carleton University. Garret gave us background on himself, his course of studies and his future objectives. Our club is supporting him in his application for a Rotary Foundation Scholarship. Beginning in July, he will be studying for a year in Sydney, Australia.
 
 
Our next speaker was Natalie Templeton, the winner of our 4-H bursary. Natalie told us of her studies at the University if Guelph and of the impact the 4-H movement had on her academic direction and her goal of eventually becoming a large animal veterinarian.
 
 
Our final speaker was Susan Smith, executive director of  Kemptville and District Home Support. Susan shared with us the reason home support exists and the services they provide. She also spoke of the partnerships they have as well as how the organization is funded. This is a service which is both needed and well used in our community.
 
The speaker for this evening's meeting was Debbie Watt, executive director of the Beth Donovan Hospice. In her presentation, Debbie took us through the origins of Hospice in general and specifically the history of BDH. Members were surprised at the extensive services that Hospice provides to our community. She spoke in depth about some of the services offered and how there is always place for someone to volunteer - many different talents are required to ensure the hospice runs smoothly.

Debbie was thanked for her most interesting presentation by Rotarian Ben.
