Our Rotary Club recently held a young writers competition in conjunction with the Kemptville Youth Centre's annual book fair. This year's event, our second and sponsored by the Egg Farmers of Ontario had two categories; authors between the ages of 10 to 13 and authors from 14 to 18. The submissions were judged by an independent local panel. Prizes for each category were $400 for first place, $250 for second place and $100 for third place.
Placings in the 10 to 13 category in order of finish were Elizabeth Newman, Ethan Geurts and Ayla Ritchie. Placings in to 14 to 16 year old category were Andrea Geleynse, Eliza Batchelor and Oceanne Joanette. Congratulations to all!
Pictured below are the winners with Rotarians Cora and John representing the Egg Farmers of Ontario and club president Nadia.

The last couple of weeks have been busy ones for our club. Pictured below, Rotarian Vic presented our Rotary bursaries to deserving students at North Grenville District HS and TR Leger. Unfortunately, we don't have a shot of the grad from St. Michael's.
 
 
 
Subsequent to that, the club held its annual pot luck Officer changeover dinner and social gathering at Rotarian Nancy's. The evening concluded with Past President Nancy placing the president's pin on incoming President Nadia.
 
 
The finale for the year had Rotarians John and Cora from our club attending a reception for incoming Rotary International President Jennifer Jones. It is worth noting that Jennifer is the first female president of  Rotary International and is Canadian. Pictured below are Rotarians John and Cora with President Jennifer and Past District Governor Faye.

Local projects we support include the Youth Centre, Camp Merrywood, House of Lazarus, and the high school science fair. We also promote local events like the annual Canada Day parade and duck race.
