Club members finished 2018 with a social ending and are looking forward to a well deserved break. We celebrated the Christmas season with family and friends at a well organized pot luck dinner hosted by Rotarian Donovan and his wife Jenn. Pictured below are some folks engaging in pre-meal festivities.
 
 
Best wishes to all for a safe and happy holiday with those important to you!

Our speaker this evening was Brian Carre, North Grenville's chief administrative officer. Brian shared his background with us as well as explaining what his role in the municipality is. The role of CAO is to be the interface between elected council and municipal staff. Staff he explained are there to provide advice to council with respect to provincial law and ensure that the decisions council make are properly executed. As CAO, he is responsible for coordinating the execution of these decisions across the various municipal departments as well as overseeing the daily operations of the municipality. Pictured below, Brian accepts a cheque from Rotarian Serge for the installation of two benches in Curry Park.
Our speaker this evening was Gary Blake, President of the North Grenville Arts Guild. In his presentation, Gary shared with our members how he transitioned from a retired family physician to a passionate artist. Having not painted since the age of 12, at the urging of his wife he rediscovered the joy and intensity of art. He mentioned that he was fortunate enough to be mentored by Charlie Spratt, an area artist of renown who helped him in his new journey. He also spoke to the North Grenville Arts Guild and the great support it gives local artists. If you haven't seen the guild members works, be sure to visit their next exhibition, you will not be disappointed. Pictured below, Gary is thanked for his presentation by Reinder.
