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.
 
District 7040's Rotary Foundation Fellowship student sponsored by our club, Garrett Milne has sent the following update for members of the club and district.
 
A little over two months ago I began what has been the biggest adventure of my life thus far – with one suitcase I left Ottawa, Canada on a two-day trip to Sydney, Australia.
 
While the physical journey began in July of this year, the actual journey began in September of 2017, when I was accepted into the Master of Health Security program at the University of Sydney. Over the course of my previous studies, I had become increasingly interested in infectious diseases, particularly from an emergency management perspective. For this reason, my specialization within this program is Biodefence and Biosafety, a program like no other around the world.
A team of Rotarians from our district, including from our club will be heading to Nepal at the end of November to deliver and help install a water filtration systems. The systems will be installed in villages that have previously been set up with water collection systems.  Members of the team going to Nepal explained how the systems work and how they are partnering with a rotary club in Kathmandu to ensure its success. Our club agreed to provide them with some financial assistance for the filtration systems. Pictures below are members of the outgoing team.
