Due to the current public health  situation, our club will not be gathering until further notice. Please follow public health directives and stay safe. Thank you to those on the front lines for their efforts in keeping us safe.
Our recent speaker was Dalia from Diabetes Canada. She provided us with an overview of the types of diabetes, symptoms, as well as some of the contributing factors linked to type 2 diabetes. We enjoyed this very educational and well received presentation, each of us taking away something new. For further information, please contact their website http://www.diabetes.ca
 
All work and no play make Jack and Jill a dull couple. Having a social component compliments any service group. Past and current members of our Rotary club recently enjoyed an informal dinner and fellowship evening.
 
After the holiday break, we are back into a regular routine. While we have conducted business the last couple of weeks, we also had personal trainer Richard Chartrand come in and speak to us about non-aggressive strength training and its benefits for older members of the community. We also said goodbye to Rotarian Bob Milne from the Rotary Club of Crieff, Scotland. We were pleased to have Bob join us for a couple of meetings during his stay in Canada. Pictured below, Rotarian Bob and President Nancy exchange club banners.
 
 
It should also be noted that beginning in February, our club will meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.
Our first meeting of 2020 was a semi-business meeting where we had a debrief of our calendar fundraiser and a general catch-up with each other. Joining us for the evening was Rotarian Bob Milne from the Rotary Club of Crieff, Scotland. Bob is in the area visiting family.
On the good news front, Rotarian Ben and his wife Esther have a new baby sister for son Harrison. May baby Erin bring them much joy!
We are recharged and as a club are looking forward to a happy and productive New Year.
Our speakers this evening were Raymond Lemay and Phil McNeely from the Rotary Club of Orleans Rotary Climate Action Team. They presented climate change information to the club as well as information on how to form a climate action team.
 
 
Following a lively question and answer discussion, President Nancy thanked our guests for their presentation.
