The Rotary Club of Kemptville is providing up to four bursaries with a value of $1000 to high school students pursuing post-secondary education. Click on "read more" below to view the application criteria.
 
 
Our speaker this evening, pictured below, was Janne Ritskes of Shalom Small Homes Kemptville. Janne explained that these homes are being built to serve members of the community who are over the age of 55 and are in dire need of affordable housing. It was noted that over a third of the seniors in our community live below the poverty line. This venture is unique in that it is being built in partnership with the municipality and local businesses without government money. Donations of money, labour, and materials are enabling this build which will provide below market level to a few qualifying seniors. The initial built will consist of 4 units on land leased for a long term from the municipality for a token sum.

Our guests of honour tonight were District Governor Pardeep Ahluwalia and his wife Simi. The meeting was informal with discussion on topics ranging from how to share and promote what we do to local and international projects and the variety of fellowship opportunities Rotary provides.
The pre-eclipse weather turned out to be beautiful for the 2024 edition of Maplefest. This joint fundraising event between our club and the Kemptville Youth Centre was a great success. Thanks to On The Bend Sugar Shack and the Kemptville Campus for allowing us to participate in the event again this year. Pictured below are our group of volunteers getting ready to feed our hungry supporters.
