Upcoming Events
 
 
Our club is the charter sponsor of the 1st Kemptville Scout Troop. The troop recently held a cook off between their five patrols. Each patrol was given a sum of money to shop, prepare and present a meal using typical scout camping gear. The event was held at Mapleview with judges coming from both the scouting movement and the community. Rotarian Dave represented our club as a judge. The menus included hamburgers, meat balls, curried rice, gluten free pasta and pad thai with creative beverages and deserts that included crepes. The presentation and quality of the meals impressed all of the judges - a job well done by a great group of young adults.
Our guest tonight was Stewart and his parents. Stewart was this year's Rotary Science Fair's best of fair winner for his project on "milk plastic". Due to the environmental concerns we have with plastics, Stewart's hypothesis was to demonstrate the ability to create a replacement for a lot of its uses including tensile strength and be biodegradable. His presentation showed both the positive aspects of his research as well as the drawbacks. A great presentation by a well spoken young adult.
The Rotary Duck Decoy Challenge is rapidly approaching. This event gives local businesses and organizations the opportunity to create a representation of themselves on a decoy duck. Judging is done by public ballot thanks to the generosity of our local Canadian Tire store who provided us with display space as well as by a panel of anonymous judges. Pictured below are a group of club members preparing bases for the ducks.
 
The Rotary Cash Calendar is a joint project of several clubs in the Ottawa area spearheaded by the Rotary Club of West Ottawa. In addition to the funds our club receives from the sale of the calendars and puts back into the community, over $23,000 has been paid out to patrons of the calendar in our area since we began the programme six years ago. Pictured below is President Jo-Anne receiving a cheque for our sales funds from Rotarian Caroline from the Rotary Club of West Ottawa.
 
 
Youth is a big commitment of our club. In addition to sponsoring the event, today members of the club not only acted as judges but also provided a light breakfast and lunch to the judging panel. The Rotary North Grenville Science Fair continues to grow each year. Pictured below are the club's kitchen crew and the school's organizer.
